Hooray for winter! We spent Shabbat in Mitzpe Ramon with some of our grandchildren. It was cold and windy as we have come to know winter in the hills of the Negev.
On motsaei shabbat (Saturday night) just as we were getting the car packed a cloud burst and it began to rain. So the kids ran to get their umbrellas and run outside to romp in the rain. The rain lasted just about long enough for us to get all excited, turn on the camera and snap the photo. But up north it did rain quite a bit, they say, and when we returned home to Rehovot we got caught in a downpour.
Speaking of winter Batya hosted and posted the latest Kosher Cooking Carnival #62 celebrating Rosh Chodesh Shevat here. I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish Batya good luck in her new job which began today.
#1 grandson has begun guitar lessons and we hope to be hearing more chords from him soon while his little cousin is very enthusiastic about her art work.
