Hello everyone -- or should I say "Shalom," or perhaps the more frequently used "allo," or even ma nishma?
I want to thank you for your support. We are still waiting for news, which will be late this week. Right now Surrogate is still having some symptoms which I hope is a good thing. And I think also no news is good news, right?
Meanwhile, we are keeping very busy and trying to enjoy ourselves. We had a hot and sweaty but very fun time in Tel Aviv, are now in the Krayot, and will be visiting Jerusalem next. I will put a note in the Kotel (the Western Wall) according to Jewish tradition -- essentially a written prayer to G-d. I am happy to include anyone else's hopes/prayers too if you want; just leave me a comment. Today Husband's parents had a bunch of friends/family over for lunch (very yummy and way tooo much food -- and killer cake!) and in the afternoon Husband and I met friends at the beach (and I even tried my hand for the first time at "matkot" (a sort of beach ping-pong game), followed by the new Star Trek movie. I will post more details but it's after 0100 and I want to get some rest.
In the meanwhile, check out the beautiful "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav" with Shuli Natan as the singer, song written by Naomi Shemer. I'm sure there are many Youtube links and let me tell you, it truly does describe the city especially in the late afternoon.
