For the first time that I can think of, I'm going to tell you not what I did today, but what I did yesterday. I guess that means that tomorrow, I'll be blogging about today. Hmm, at some point, I'd better play catch up.
Anyway, yesterday was a school holiday, and we drove to Jerusalem to see Avi's family. Liat's good friend Eden came along. We ate, the kids played cards, I knit, we ate, the kids played word games, I knit, we ate, the kids read, Avi cooked, I washed dishes, and we did a little (very little) sightseeing.
We drove to a promenade not far from my in-laws' home, where we could enjoy a panoramic view of the city. Avi pointed out various sights to the girls.
The view is gorgeous, but almost always hazy. Here you can see the Old City, with the mosque known as the Dome of the Rock shining golden in the late afternoon sunshine
Avi took this photo. I believe this building in the foreground is the Church of Gethsemane. Somebody please correct me if I am wrong!
So many trees were in glorious bloom.
I like to take "artistic" photos.
There were lovely sights to see in my MIL's garden, as well.
See what I mean?
Yes, Meital at age 10 is the same height as her grandmother; Liat is taller. My MIL is very petite, very smart, and very loving.
In short, we all had a great time. And, I got a lot of knitting done.
