No new news that I know of, and I don't want to call and risk waking her; more update later.
DAY 6, Tuesday - Masada, Dead Sea
This morning descend through the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth at 1200 feet below sea level. Drive along the shores to Masada. A fortress built by King Herod, and later used by the Jewish Zealots as their last stronghold against the Romans. Arriving in Masada, ascend the mount via cable car to visit the excavations. Descend via cable car. This evening enjoy dinner at your hotel in Dead Sea.
I had an unusual number of questions about Shayara in the recent question/answer poll. I am now wondering if there are any other things about it you're curious about...
saraphina_marie's new book is out!
I do not have a link soup today, as yesterday was all fretting about my sister, trying and failing to nap, and finishing the Neptune shawl (having had to rip back the fourth repeat and half the edging).
Work. After work I actually get writing time yay. Mark has 'specially requested that I finish futzing around with "Maxfield Parrish Blue(s)" so I can submit it somewhere, so yes yes I'll do that today. Diesel tonight.
