Stocking Up & A Miscellany...

Sundays are good days for taking care of personal business, as they are the one day each week we have entirely to ourselves. In addition to doing some laundry I didn't want to entrust to the staff, I made my initial raid on the supply magazine, the food magazine, the beverage refrigerator and the cookie store. Here is my booty:
Clockwise from top: Paper towels, dish detergent, juice boxes (mango-peach), club soda, pomegranate with pulp, Adel's famous oatmeal cookies, nut mix (almonds, pistachios, walnuts and peanuts), dust cloth and sponge
Later I made up a new cocktail using gin and the club soda and pomegranate. Very refreshing!

Today's miscellany includes flowers and the library. I'll have more for you about the library and its workings soon. Don't forget to let me know if there's something in particular you would like me to blog about. I'll do my best!

Marvelous Marvel of Peru from the breezeway

Library Extension (houses the Main Collection)


  1. I did not realise there were two bits to the library, when was it extended what was there before. Do you know?

    1. It was mostly a courtyard before the library was extended in the 90s.

    2. How interesting, thanks for the reply

  2. Please let us know what is happening with the people of Egypt after the revolutions.

    1. I will try to intersperse some current news with my "everyday life" posts. But the best way of sharing this info with you is through my posts about the people of Luxor. I promise to do as much of that as possible.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
Salaam aleikum!
