Right now it's about 7 a.m. on Wednesday, so I'll go over the last few days.  Sunday was the beginning of my Dad's work week since he gets Fridays off.  They work on a Sunday to Thursday work week to observe their Holy day.  With that in mind the mornings have been a little slow, but very relaxing.  He starts work at 6:30 a.m. and gets home around 3 p.m.  I suspect they have early mornings given they have the call to prayer around 5ish in the morning... 

Sunday, my step mom and I ended up just chatting and watching a movie till my Dad got home.  Once he got home we went to the Corniche that's about a mile away and jogged.  After that we went to the Marina Mall for some shopping and dinner.  The Marina Mall is pretty upscale...

Yesterday, Tuesday, we did just about the same thing, except I walked to and ran the Corniche by myself (5 1/2 miles) while my  Dad was at work.  I've been wearing sweat pants and a t-shirt to workout, so I don't offend anyone with shorts.  Well, on the way to the Corniche yesterday, this car kept pulling into parking lots in front of me and pulling out.  He tried 2-3 times to talk to me before he actually got me at curb (he waited).  He asked if I needed a ride to some place or something.  I said thanks, but that's o.k....  He asked several times...  I'm not sure what the motive was.  He was in a traditional Arab robe.  I don't see many women walking alone around here, so maybe he was just being kind.  You never know, just a little strange.    

The other interesting thing about going to the Corniche was that I ran pass a guy fishing and on the way back he was in his car waiting for the line to pull from a caught fish (it was a hot day yesterday).  So, I looked at his license plate number and he had a license plate number of 558.  Over here the closer you see the number 1 on a license plate, it's assumed you've seen royalty.  He's probably a cousin or something...  He was definitely a hottie.  There's do doubt about that!  Ha-ha!  Too bad I was a puddle of sweat when I saw him.  That's so attractive!
