beach bird

just a quick hello. still here. went to the beach last week on one of those spring days. started out with boots and fleece, and ended up in t-shirts and bare feet. the kids took it one step further and ended up all naked. wanted to swim, but only got to the knees.the water is still really cold.

work is good too. getting into it, but i still have my parents here to make the week days run smoothly. we had purim, so the kids have been dressed up all week. superheroes are in around here. superman, batman and the absolute favorite, spiderman. with a bit of ben10 too. i must admit i wasn't even trying to sell any wonderful creative ideas for outfits as it suited me just fine to buy a synthetic, ready-made costume in the shop this year. creativity is very limited around here these days and i have decided to be cool about it. it will return, but now is not the time.

wishing you a beautiful week.

in the air

it's blooming. flowers appearing, sweet smell in the air. our orange trees are covered in white dots greeting me in the evening with their sweet smell. for some reason the smell is stronger in the evening. and these rotem flowers, tiny and plentyful on bushes spread out through the landscape i watch while riding the train in the morning, adding sweetness to all the green, to the beginning of my day, that is now so different than before.

the beginning of our new family life has begun. i started working, but so far it's ok, as we have lined up support (my parents are visiting this month) for an easy transition for everyone. and i think, it will be fine. i have, though, cut down on many other activities for the time being, including blogging - posting as well as commenting and visiting. i am not sure when i will be able return to regular blogging habits, but i guess time will show. until then ... xoxo
