The summer break

It seemed as if the long hot summer never wanted to end. We got around 40 Celcius! It''s still hot but bearable :)

During my summer break I celebrated my birthday and got from hubby a beautiful white porcelain sink. I wanted for ages to replace my ugly sink in the tiniest shower possible. We bought an Ikea garden cart in the sale, took of the wheels, leveled the legs, drilled a hole in the top and put the sink and it's exactly as I wanted.

We spend a couple of days in Eilat at the Red Sea (had to fly back home early for a Navy ceremony for Michal, not allowed to show the photos from the ceremony). Photos were made with my cellphone, some trough the windows, so not the best quality)


We had a missing cat, Nina who fortunately turned up after 4 days. She had been attacked and had a wound behind her ear. She was totally freaked out, hungry and thirsty but she is all healed now :)

and today we got this

Yael fed Nina in the morning by putting food on top of her closet (Nina is still weary and needs to eat in a "safe"place). Than Yael stepped from her bed and misplaced her foot and landed with her hand bend. She broke the base of her hand near the wrist.

Hope to bring more regular posts now, now the weather is getting back to normal :) Have a wonderful week!

My hutch

Remember the pine hutch I bought for very little? Those have to be imported, not made in Israel and hard to find!!! Well I finally had the time to paint it. Still need to relocate many items from the old buffet we had, so the hutch is still a bit overloaded (those are my cookbooks there), but the start is there!

Here is the before

and here is the after! It's now in the same style as the dinner table and my coffee buffet and I love it :)

Goodbye little friend

One of our cats taken in from the street had a kidney problem (as many cats do) and we took care he got enough to drink and special food. It seemed to be stable (he has been with us for many years) but all of the sudden a couple of weeks ago he started to loose weight. We had it before with four other cats, weeks, months of daily IVs and suffering and in the end they died nevertheless leaving us with huge vet bills. We talked about it, if we wanted for him also such a prolonged suffering, but he took the decision from us by disappearing. I searched a week for him and today he came back home. I came home from work and he was laying moaning next to the front door, very thin, very ill. I wrapped him in a blanket and took him to the vet who said there was nothing that could be done anymore to save him and so we put him to sleep. It was the best for him, but it was so sad.

RIP Leben. Until the Rainbow bridge.

Passover and freebie!

Well this post was written a few days ago but before I got to post it my computer crashed! Lost my operating system C drive and had to get a new drive and install windows and a ton of programs again. I have lost thousands of emails and my address book as well, besides stored password and program registration numbers etc. A catastrophe, but slowly slowly restoring everything!

This was my original post a few days back!

Tonight we celebrated the Passover seder and it was wonderful, with hubby reading the Hagada and the meal with gefilte fish for the non-vegetarians, matzos and knedelach!

I always listen to this opera with Passover and my favorite part is
the beautiful haunting prayer from Mozes in Egypt by Rossini (1819)

Dal tuo stellato soglio,  
signor, ti volgi a noi:
pietà de' figli tuoi,
del popol tuo pietà!

From Thy starry throne,
Lord, you turn to us:
pity Your children,
have mercy on Thy people!

I have this freebie for you!
A add-on paperpack for my kit EMS Arts - Passover!
The kit itself is available at my store, exclusive at CSD!

Older freebies with EMS Arts - Passover
A card to print with your Passover present! Hope you like!

The printed card

 and a quickpage! 12x12 inch.

The kit itself is available at my store, exclusive at CSD!

To all who celebrated Passover, I hope you had a wonderful holiday! And to all who celebrated Pascha soon, have a wonderful Easter holiday!
