Around the House
Let's wander into Liat's room for awhile, shall we? She's off at school and will never even know we've been here. This is the door to her room. As you can see, she considers her door a work-in-progress. She's fairly satisfied with the outside, and has started collaging the inside, as well. I'm not sure if you can see in the photo, but Captain Jack Sparrow is a clear favorite.
Here's what you see when you stand in the doorway. For some strange reason, I tend to find all kinds of excuses to wander into Liat's room throughout the day. I wonder why that would be?
Now, I think this is ingenious and even almost fiendishly clever. Liat puts up these sticky notes to remind herself of upcoming tests. One note per test. At present, these notes go all the way across her wall-mounted bookshelf. The kid has got a whole lot of exams coming up.
And what's this? Ah yes, the book Liat is currently reading in Hebrew (she's reading a novel by Lawrence Block in English). She took this book out of the school library just the other day. I will be very interested to hear what she thinks of it. I'm sure almost all of you have read this book. Did you enjoy it? When I read it, I really didn't understand what all the fuss was about. I suppose I ought to read it again. In English, of course. What is it? Just a little novel called The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger.
Okay, that's enough about Liat. I simply must show you my greatest achievement of the day. It's pretty outstanding. I hope you won't be jealous and get upset with me. After all, not everyone gets to do something this exciting right smack dab in the middle of the week.
I cleaned out the kitchen junk drawer.
