Today I managed to get out of bed and go for a walk. Winter is here - again. Although it feels like it may stay around for awhile. Means that it is windier than a fart in a windstorm and quite brisk. Did not get as far as before - but after I started I realized that I am not 100% yet - even with a week off my left butt and leg are still sore - really frustrating - figured it should be better by now. But I did do something.
Got home and had some breakfast after doing my stretches. Had a shower, got dressed and headed out to Carrefour and Fathalla. At Carrefour they had frozen chickens - 1200-1300 g - for 11 LE - a really good price - you can always tell when things are a good price - the shopping carts are full. I bought 3 of them - would have like to have bought more - but do not have anywhere to store any more than that - SIGH - sure do wish I had a freezer - would have bought at least 10 of them - would have lasted quite a few months. I got some prints made from the camera - must go through my pictures and make more prints - I do like to have pictures not just what is on the camera. But I got busy and printed the pictures of my 'friends' at the souk - they have been after me for a copy. Printed a few others as well. Costs .80 LE per print - not bad. At Fathalla I bought ground beef - it is from Argentina - previously frozen - but it is better than the ground beef I bought at Carrefour and a fraction of the price. It was only 14.80 a kg - down from 15.00 - I bought a kg last week and another kg this week - do not dare buy it when Aymn is around - as he will not eat it - little does he know - I just buy it when he is not around - tastes wonderful.
Managed to snag a good parking spot again - my lucky day. Gave the key to the car to Ahmed - the bowab - so he could clean the inside of the car - was much easier when he had a key - then he could clean it whenever he had time - but Aymn pitched a fit and insisted on getting the key back. And of course I cannot communicate with Ahmed to give him a key and just to make sure he does not let Aymn know that he has a key - and besides it would just get him in trouble - so...
After I got most of my groceries away my get up and go deserted me - I am very tired - not really sure why - just feel drained.
Chatted with mom in the afternoon. Such an exciting life they lead - the family up the hill is providing all kinds of drama.
Then I went to Sharon's for a sneak peak at her moving sale. I managed to spend a bit of money - got a fan that I really need as I do not have one - and an ironing board - not that I iron - but Aymn does - we have the iron - so when he wants to iron anything he ends up ironing on the bed - which makes me nervous - especially as he managed to burn the furniture in an apartment when he was at university - ironed something - on the bed - and forgot to turn the iron off - came home from university to a smoldering mess - need I say more.
