Sunday Snippets - Holiday Card Outtakes

Lest you think that having a bit of skill with a camera makes it easy, these are just three of my MANY, MANY attempts at a decent photo for this year's cards... (Notice I said decent, nowhere did I actually say "good". Sigh... At least they had fun with it.)

And now for the long-awaited snippets (humor me, pretend you've actually been waiting for them) -

  • Last week's cold has left me completely and utterly unable to speak. I can barely croak.
  • The other possibility is that the culprit is all the smoke I inhaled the other night when we turned on the oven to bake bread, not realizing that something had spilled all over the floor of the oven. 
  • In case you were wondering, it's not all that fun to have to open all the windows in the house and crank up the fans in the middle of a December night, even if that is December in Israel, not Siberia.
  • My daughter just received a sno-cone machine as a belated birthday gift. 
  • She isn't letting the falling temperatures dissuade her in any way from her love for sno-cones.
  • I however am cold just thinking about it.
  • Also, my head hurts from all the coughing and croaking.
  • It's making me cranky.
  • Luckily, Itai has mastered the fine art of making his mother a cup of tea. Speaking of which...
So, what's on your list for this week?

My (real) photography (the artsy stuff, not the outtakes of my pathetic attempt to photograph my kids) is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography on Etsy and Society6 and bring home something beautiful today!
If the photo you're wishing for is something you've seen here on the blog which isn't in one of my shops yet just let me know and I'll happily list it for you.

Cute kids, cute photos.

You don't sound too good though. How 'bout you teach Itai to make you a cup of chicken soup?
And/or warm salt water gargle.

I hate that when the smoking oven happens right before company comes.

Sei gesund, Robin.

but your photos are gorgeous Robin!
Sorry you've been unwell, having a cold is miserable at any time, just as well you have your little man to make a comforting cuppa!
Take care.

I think you should use the first one for the cards! It's completely natural!

I've missed visiting but I'll be better now. Hope you feel better soon. Just reading your post made me want to go make a cup of tea.

Sounds like you are having rough week, Robin, but you haven't lost your sense of humor. Hope things get back to normal very soon.

Personally, the outtakes are always my favorite. :-D

Here's to hoping you get your voice back soon!
