It's been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But I don't have time to go into the details just yet. Instead, here are some odds and ends I've been meaning to get to but haven't.
First off, isn't that husband of mine handsome? Here he is, along with some of his colleagues, in front of Secretary Clinton's plane. Yes, she visited Amman briefly last week, adding to his already way-too-busy schedule. But at least he got a good photo out of it, right? (He's the guy on the far left.)
Today our normally blue skies went dark. There was an on-and-off drizzle.
The skies briefly cleared at the dinner hour before a dust storm rolled in. Here are some creepy pictures taken from our front yard. We had some nasty dust storms in Beijing - worse than this - but then again, back in Beijing it wasn't so startling to see a strange brown sky. We were used to seeing every color but blue in our Chinese sky.
Lastly, another call for help. Does anyone out there have a suggestion for a web design firm? Not for a blog re-design, but for a business website. If you have any suggestions for me, please let me know.
