Bella has not returned and I don't think she will now. Joey has been missing for nearly 2 years and not a sign of him ever since. We already have a couple of new guest cats coming and going, so the house is always full of them, but I do miss them!
This is the last week of the school-vacation. School starts on September 1 here. All the new school supplies are ready, the girls have new uniform Tshirts printed with the school logo and especially Yael is anxious to return :) So I had to think of something to keep them busy these last weeks! They have been with vacation since June 20th!
Last Saturday we went to visit Michal who was on her Navy-boat in a harbor, a half-hour drive away from us (can't show you pictures of Michal or tell you where it was exactly as it's against army rules).We packed her some clean laundry, magazines and tons of food and she was happy! After the visit the girls wanted to go to the beach.
We were eight together and everybody loved it and had a great time!
Over time I had lost some of the covers in the kibbutz laundry and bought another set (not identical) and also had lost some of those. They were also worn and ugly. Each pillow is 110 shekels! (nearly 30 dollars) and I have 8! No way I am going to spend 880 shekels on eight new pillows. My mom's old curtains are a vintage yellow/orange tulip pattern, thick quality fabric, I think from Turkey (Scotch card Felicia Küçükçalık döşemelik) and I think I have at least 18 yards of it.
I showed Yael how we were going to make them (envelope closing for easy laundry). I made one and she made 3! And a matching tablecloth, and a matching throwpillow and we still have more than half of the fabric left!
Next week we"ll make another four of them for the larger dinging table (right now we only use the smaller one).
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! Stay safe!
