Back, in several ways

Back home again. We had a really lovely visit at my mil's house this time around. We went on a couple of hikes (16km one day and 4km the next), which I'll share photos of later, and I feel motivated to get into shape again the better to enjoy the fantastic outdoors.

For months now, I've been meaning to get back to my art journaling, and a LJ friend's resolution to a 30-day drawing challenge finally gave me the kick I needed to pick up some charcoal last night and do a quick sketch. Now I have to draw again today and the next day and the next, and I'll finally be back into the habit.

I haven't been writing of late--just the odd thought here and there--what with our guests and all, but I'm back into it now. Speaking of, I need to post a Sunday Snippet. That shall be another post. And I shall make an overall writing update post, as well, but that too will be another post. Tomorrow, with the photos I promised almost a month ago...

And speaking of "back," here is a bit of news I promised to get back with, too:  It is official--as in truly black-on-white, telegram, you-can't-take-it-back official--we are moving to Egypt. Julien will start work 25 Oct, so that means our move date will be a few days before that.

Time to start learning a few phrases in Egyptian Arabic.

Is this boat (in your icon) one of those Egyptian ones? (I remember my mother telling me about Egyptian boats with special sails.)

Yay for the telegram, and learning Egyptian Arabic. And high fives for sister doodles!

You must be excited! I've always wanted to go to Egypt "one day", although I'm not sure when that day will be.

Excited, yes, but also a bit harried already. We have three months, but we are going to have to go to Paris several times to take care of admin stuff with the Egyptian embassy. I'm already dreading it.

And maybe your day in Egypt will come sooner rather than later. You can always come for a visit. :D
