Uneventful, boring, enjoyable

It's been a peaceful weekend and I've done nothing but relax and enjoy it.

Friday after lunch the girls and I drove out to see how the house building was going at the farm. The tile is being installed in the garden and driveway. It's moving along sloooooowly. Later I went out for coffee with some friends.

Saturday I stayed home mostly, just going out to do some hunting and gathering at the butcher shop and greengrocer's. In the evening I did some errands; picking up dry cleaning and bread from the bakery.

Sunday was a public holiday but the shops were open even though most offices, businesses and schools were closed. The kids and I discussed the idea of going to a motorcycle/automobile expo they'd heard about, but in the end we didn't really feel like it. I took the girls shopping. Jenna got a pair of shoes and a bag and we stopped at the ice cream shop in Zawiat Damani for a treat. The ice cream there is good, but I think it's even better this year than it was last year. It seemed creamier today.


We returned home as the sun was setting and I stopped the car and took a picture because it looked so pretty. I hope you had a nice weekend too.

Blogger is acting up today.... not sure if the picture posted correctly...


  1. Fascinating, compelling blog! Thank you

    Try the icecream of "AL-SABIKA BELKHAIR" in Alwadi St.
    It's more creamy and yammy.

  4. Thanks TR and Maiuna.

    leyal - it's scarier to be the passenger. Driving at least you are in control. I lived in Miami for 6 years and they drive almost as bad as in Libya there... the Cuban influence or something.

  5. I thought Miami would be full of traffic police just like in films...!
    Anyway compliments on yr blog..it gives me courage on my big move to tripoli one day!!
