Happy Hanukkah

Hanukkah may well be the holiday with best traditions
the crafts, the songs, the food - who doesn't like a good doughnut?
this year, with my niece and nephew, we made menorahs
the candlesticks are branches that have been cut and drilled

The Merits of Courtesy

One day while going up the stair
a little lion met a bear
he moved to let the bear descend
and now he has a brand new friend

we are ready for you, winter!

Nursery Revisited

I'm fortunate to have this beautiful nursery nearby
they are always creative in their displays
and the selection is amazing

My five-year-old niece Dana, seen in the first photo
explained this truth to me:
"candy isn't really healthy, so I eat it like it was energy bars"
if only!

Five Little Puffins

I've never heard of the noble puffins 
until I came across this design in a cross-stitch book.
It seems that these small birds are known for their colorful beaks
and they feed primarily by diving into the water for fish.
Mine don't have to exert themselves as they have a muffin

Words to Live By

I've come across a quote comes from Mary Rodgers Guettel: 
“We needn't stand on ceremony, but let’s not live like pigs.”
In short: balance is everything
and a little styling never hurt anyone :-)

Splat on the Ground

Isn't it nice to be dreaming your dreams
to have a mind buzzing with new plans and schemes?
but you don't have the time to look carefully around
and that's how I found myself splat on the ground

Yaffa from Jaffa

Yaffa is a small Arabic book store and coffee shop in Jaffa
They offer Arabic classes and musical events and more
not just a coffee shop at all

But I only know it as the place to stop by
when I visit my brother who lives around the corner
and I always enjoy it
