|june 30 -- friend, with treats|
June 30--Egypt, Cairo, The Mamluk Carpet. We treated that red and blue carpet like an indoor hopscotch game. Around the center diamond there were eight-pointed stars between designs that looked like wheels and spokes. We used stone tile coasters as tokens. We'd stand on one of the corners and slide our tile onto one motif after another, then we'd hop from space to space around the center. Julian and Amelia were the best. They'd keep their turns going so long that I'd get tired of waiting. Usually I'd be lying under the marquetry table asleep when one or the other of them won the game with me not needing to play one minute to lose.
That's all folks. I think I'm going to go play with fabric, and I might mow the lawn later when the sun's going down. I've been trying to remember when I last mowed... I don't think it was in June. That's how dry it is. Can you imagine? Is this 4th of July weekend or is it next weekend? With the actual day on Wednesday how do you know?
