Just on a whim, I turned on my laptop while sitting outside Gate 122 in Dubai. Imagine my surprise – Internet! Free Internet at that.

What can I say? 8-15th in the Arabian Gulf with sunshine, smooth seas, warm temps, more food that anyone in their right mind would eat and a relaxing time spent with the Eldest. No snow, no rain. No shoveling, cursing or cars that slide across the road and into a ditch.
I still have an hour before flight time. A quiet transition when not quite on vacation but not yet returned to the world of deadlines, laundry, house repairs and uniforms.
I knit a scarf while underway, half a shawl and the body of a raglan sweater. Never did get to the socks….
