Hodge Podge

Today Avi and I attended a ceremony for tenth graders at Liat's school. By law, all Israeli citizens over the age of 16 must carry an I.D. card. Today, Liat and her classmates received those cards. The photo shows Liat with her teacher. It was a special moment, made all the more enjoyable by the opportunity to see so many of Liat's wonderful friends.

I forgot to show you a couple of wonderful gifts I received recently. This gorgeous card is from my wonderful friend, Debbie. It's a great day when you get something this pretty in the mail!

My friend and neighbor, Michele, came by the other evening with her daughter, who is Liat's closest friend. She brought this stunning clock, which she painted herself just for me. Michele has been trying to teach me to paint like this, but I'll confess I have not been doing my homework! I finally have the right brushes and paints, so it's just a matter of finding the time.

Yeah, that'll happen.

Oh well, you never know. Meanwhile, the costume is sewn, the cookies and hamantaschen are baked, and tomorrow you'll get to see what I've been complaining about for the last few days.

That clock is amazing. I am always a bit envious at those who can draw/paint such beautiful things heh. I can think up stuff in my head, but it never comes out right if I try to put it to paper with pen or ink.
