This morning Adam presented me with a beautiful magnolia while I was having breakfast...sigh.. I'm getting ready to head for 'home'. Trying to squish as much as I can in a suitcase and not be over the weight limit is almost as difficult as trying to thread a sewing needle with a piece of yarn!

It's been nearly a month since I've been anywhere in the vicinity of an open can of tuna. I haven't eaten anything even remotely resembling Libyan food. And guess what?
I don't miss it one bit! There are a lot of things that I love about Libya and I miss when I am away... but I don't think I could ever miss Libyan food!
There are lot's of Libyans that live abroad... What do you miss most?

Ibrahim and I went with my mom and my nephew Jeremiah to the cemetary to visit my dad's grave. Then we stopped at the park and ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It was the first time I've had a chance to see the cemetary on Memorial Day - the only day of the year that the flags are displayed on each of the veteran's graves. There were thousands of flags!

Thanks to all who offered their condolences and well wishes. I'm with my family in sunny (and hot and humid) Florida. The birds sing, the flowers bloom, the sun rises and sets, and life goes on. I'm going to try to relax and enjoy the rest of my time here. I'll be back soon.
