still playing catch-up..
Dear Annie at Blooming Marvelous has given me two awards. Huzzah! I'm shopping for that trophy cabinet. thank you so much for thinking of me, and thinking of me so kindly.
Mama Zen has memed me and wishes to know, "what's my view from my window?"
My little cobbled street outside is filled alternately with tourists and children, both are amusing. It is the laughter of the children that lifts my heart, and the teenage boys have become my posse - helping me out and being generally very fun. There are the football games with the little ones, and the twirling tops. Women in hijab and djellaba walk by, as do the girls in their fitted jeans and colorful tops and the occasional cat secure in their place in the world. Outside my window and across the river is the city of Sale’ that rings with the bloody history of the Barbary Pirates, the cries of the slaves, the guns of the Berbers, and the prayer calls of the Muslims - some are echoes, some are now. I can see the top of the oldest mosque in Rabat, which is in the Oudayas. Outside my window are adventure, romance, mystery, ignorance, poverty, richness, wisdom, and the always-changing reality of what tomorrow will bring.http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
I tag Sicily Scene, jmb, and Dulwichmum with "what's your view from your window?"
I pass on to Sparx, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, and Omega Mum the I Love Your Blog award.
I enjoy reading Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, today her column is a hoot; for a good laugh, read here.
