The week started bad. Sunday morning we had to get back to work and school. My assistant didn't work that day and had not let me knowin advance. Michal dropped her cellular phone (third generation Sony Ericson) in a cab to school. Half an hour later the sim-card was already out of the phone or it was shut off, because when I called it went straigth to voicemail. I left a message but the person who found it has other plans with the phone apparantly. So now we need to get her a new one, so she can call home from boardingschool. I still have to pay half a year more for the one she lost. Last week Yael broke her laptopscreen (not the glass, but the LCD or whatever inside). Mind you, we are talking about a 8-month old laptop which she got with her bat-mitswa. Sigh.
Oh well, I hope tomorrow I get some of my craft supplies, I bought on Ebay from USA (Prima flowers, die cuts etc.). I can't get anything in the area where we live.
As for the weather, we had planned to go to the Hermon mountains this weekend to celebrate Sarai's birthday in the snow (but we didn't have a car. In a kibbutz cars are communal property and you must reserve one, which we did, but still..there was no car available in the weekend, large enough for a family of six), but the weather changed drastically and there was 31 Celcius predicted for today!! I went to work in short sleeves. How weird this winter is.
So yes, Sarai is 15 today!! She bought herself a nice compact JVC camcorder with the money we gave her, and the grandparents gave her and she is very happy with it!
So here some photos of the week thus far and hopefully it only gets better !

one of our "guest" cats, Lucifer (or Van Gogh, as he is missing an ear) who usually lays on the roof of our shed. He is such a sweet soul. Here I just told him a funny joke...
