it's so so hot around here. really bad. and we didn't get to the beach the other day, since the car made problems. we went to the pool instead. we live in a moshav, that is, a little community, used to be a farm village. there's a little farming left, but mainly the hobby, small time kind. but it's countryside and besides the kikdergartens (one for the little ones and one for the bigger ones - i have kids in both), there is a moadon (which is a community building), a football field, a synagoge, a playground and even a little library for the kids. and then there is the pool. open from may to october. last year we didn't go at all (both D and i are beach people), but this year we did. i must admit that the boys tend to prefer it from the beach many days. which i kind of understand, because most of their friends are there, and there's a lot of jumping, playing, ice creams and table football. good fun. the good thing about it, from my point of view, is that they are really becoming good swimmers. it's much easier to learn to swim in a pool than it is at the beach. and it's just 5 minutes down the road.
no photos though. i don't have time for cameras when i'm there. at all. they are all over the place, and even if they are pretty responsible in the water, then they are still just little ones. so i'm all alert.
instead some photos from the hot hot garden. and of two blankets i made. yes, it's crazy hot and insane to even think about blankets, but i wanted to do these for a long time. and now was the time, apparently. i think i might subconsciously be dreaming of colder evenings wrapped in blankets on the couch. well, that will not be anytime soon. not here at least, maybe in denmark next week...
