Talk of Eid
Eid is just around the corner - only a few weeks away. For some weird reason I'm not dreading it this year as I usually do. I think it's because last year we slaughtered by ourselves for the first time without the in-laws and it turned out fine and so we'll most likely do it again. Eid without in-laws is a peaceful event!
There is some talk going around town about sheep being infected with a disease called 'blue tongue' (?). Also talk of imported sheep. I'm not sure what it's about but according to my husband the sheep that are affected die very quickly and so it's unlikely that you would buy one that was sick because it would be obviously ill. We'll see what happens. If there's a sheep or not I really don't care one way or the other. We can always grill a chicken. At any rate, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
In the mean time, the weather is cooling off. I'm already making plans on how I'll spend my weekend so I can enjoy the fresh air.
