Hello to new reader tinydaisy!
State of the 'song
Major exhaustion yesterday led me to nap 'til time to leave for Diesel. Fie.
My sister is
Home from the hospital and feeling okay-ish.
DAY 7, Wednesday - Jordan Valley, Beit Shean
This morning, depart for a stop at Ahava Dead Sea Laboratories and observe first-hand how creams and lotions are made with minerals extracted from the Sea. Drive past Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in caves nearby. Continue north through the Jordan Valley to visit the excavations and Roman amphitheater of Beit Shean, a city mentioned in the Bible, later a Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine city which was destroyed by an earthquake in 749AD, rebuilt today as a modern Israeli city. Afterwards, proceed to Beit Alpha and visit the zodiac mosaic floor in the ancient synagogue. Continue to Tiberias for dinner at your hotel.

After work, the edits I should've done yesterday, plus at least one of the poems on my docket please. Also I need to do organizational posts for Readercon and Blogathon. And I have got to touch base with my doctor about my back. And a few more scattered things - hrmph, yeah, this is going to be one of those days that I have to make a to-do list. Such is life.
Right, then. Let's get to it.
