Grapes


Thanks so much to all of you for the well wishes for my son's journey to the US last week. He arrived safe and sound, had a great couple of days with his grandparents and is now off at sleepaway camp. No photos have been posted to the camp website yet, but I've got that refresh button working overtime. (I'm not at all worried, just excited to see how much fun he's having. Not sure how much will be posted though, since they warned me ahead of time that they don't have a very dependable internet connection out there in the bloomin' woods.)

Maya and I fly out to join him in just eight days, so things around here are kicking into overdrive as I prepare (home/work/life) to be gone for a month. If I didn't get to your blog this past week rest assured it wasn't for lack of trying and I very much appreciate all of your visits to my little island on the net. (Don't get too excited burglars, my husband will still be here and we have VERY watchful neighbors ;).)

Psst... Wondering how I ended up in Israel, and why I stay? Here's your chance to find out :).

Classy photo! I love the blue bowl and grapes against the creamy background and the barely visible reflection of the bowl.

Very painterly and blue! Lovely.

I remember examining the camp website for photos. My sleepaway son is home this summer, but next summer he is thinking of going to Israel. Ah, me oh my. It would be great for him.
