Hanuka is over (or the truth about real life)

This is the last evening of the holiday,a peaceful moment near the beautiful candles. I can leave it as it is here with the wonderful feeling of light, warmth and quiet evening, but the truth is that 5 minutes after we lit the candles, he wanted a toy that his sister was playing with, she wanted something that we could not get at that moment and the oldest one (7) was crying  because he lost in the card games.  They were fighting and shouting and crying for some long moments, until suddenly it was quiet again.Real life and blogland life are sometimes parallel universes, different but a like.

Holiday of holidays

It is a long story and i shall not tell it here, but in spite of my comments on some blogs that i miss Christmas here, we do have some indication of it here, along with our Hanuka holiday now.

Sreet cat

The photo was taken  a few minutes ago.It is raining here and Sneaky the cat went inside the igloo that i bought for Edmund last winter when it was snowing(!) here.Edmund used it once, but than Sneaky went inside and Edmund never went inside again.Sneaky was a street cat, I saw him many times sitting on the garbage cans .One day Edmund konced on our door and became our cat, Sneaky was watching him, he came to eat with him, he slept near  him, and started to watch his behaviour,He let us tuch him and was not afraid any more.We feed him with dry cat's food with some canned tuna fish above, lately i discovered that he eats only one kind of tuna fish, he does not like Rio mare tuna fish (imported from Italy), he eats only Israeli products. he was a street cat. he  knows what he is doing.Sneaky the cat will never ban Israeli products.

The psychology of hatred

Why do someone starts hating somebody else ? What is the moment that the name of a COUNTRY, RELIGION or ORIGIN starts to ring all the bells of hatred in someones else ears and sol?
Is it one moment or many moments of bad education and bad life circumstances?
How come that the hatred is so strong that it spreads like spider web and touches and hurts everybody else who talk to the object of hatred?
How miserable one can be? how much fun can you really get if you are motivated mostly by negative emotions? can one live a happy and healthy life if most of the time he is insulting people in the virtual world?
How coward one can be ? not presenting himself with his real name and identity?Where does his real life and virtual life meet? there must be a place in his real life that all those negativism take place too.

Family members

Dog 1- my "grandson", sitting on my daughter's front porch, waiting for me to take him with me when we go to pick the children from their kindergarten
Dog 2- looks so sweet and innocent, caught in the middle of the night sleeping in a forbidden place.

We beat the chinese

He is almost 7 and i like to watch him looking at the 149 small peaces and peacefully in 30 minuets goes step by step and built the space ship or what ever it is.Some times we buy the cheap stuff made in China and there is almost some parts missing or the wrong parts, he gets very angry. this time i told him let beat the Chinese and built something else from those parts, he was very happy and did it, after that we went to the town to buy a real expansive Lego space ship.I still have the feeling that we beat the Chinese.

Edmund the cat

 I was told that he is old and i treated him like that. Lately he prefers the roof of the house. He needs to jump to the olive tree and from the tree to the roof. May be i don't know enough about old cats.

Dust storm

Every thing is yellow, that how our sky looked at noon, the dust is coming from Sirya and it will take few days until we will have blue and sunny sky again, No metaphors here.

Most of the time i have only the headlines for my posts. This is the headline that came to my mind few days ago and i did not know where to take it from there.
It came to my head while i was with my grandchildren and heard that the Iron dome spread above our heads again, knowing that i have only 45 seconds to find a shelter with 3 kids (6.5.3), i thought may be my next post will be about pretending, Pretending to live a normal life "sans crainte", without fear,
Than the rockets hit the north part of our country and i was relieved as if it happened in some other country, far away.

Delusional biography

I just remembered that my father wrote a book about his life and called it that name. He did not publish that book. He published some other 20 books.I did not read that book and now i don't find it in my house. My son read it and said that it is amazing how many things my father made in his life.
Yesterday I found my father with a 800 pages book about WW2,He served in the Jewish brigade of the British army and was in Europe 5 years, until the end of the war.He came to Israel 91 years ago when he was 1 year and did not know the family who stayed in Poland, When the war was over he was asked to look for his cousin, a young woman who was in one of the camps, he went to that concentration camp and found her, unlike my Father i don't know how to tell a story.

(here were some sad facts, I deleted it)

Later we watched Sky news live coverage of the 70 years celebrations from London.
This is not a sad post. We are happy family as happy families are, and sad as sad families are.

I wonder why

Inspired by Cro I went to look for walnuts oil.I could not find even one bottle in 3 shops that i thought it might be there. There are so many things there but not the one small bottle that i am looking for.

Garlic baker

Near my house there is a small ceramics factory, I bought a small "garlic baker "for me and big one for my daughter, I put in zuchhini, red pepper, eggplant and carrot, olive oil and salt and after 10 minutes in the microwave it was the most tasty thing that i ate lately. She sent me the picture with the chicken potatoes and yogurt that she cooked for 15 minutes in the microwave and said it was very very tasty.(it is called garlic baker because earlier they made only small ones for garlic).

Shades of grey

Last week was grey and cold (for us), this week it is 40c. 

The hedgehog who started to behave like a cat the last few weeks died suddenly.
May be he had some identity problems, but it was nice to see him sitting with the cats outside waiting for his food.

I read that Isis are near our northern border so I keep this blog in case I shall need some moral support in the future..

I never promised you a rose garden

Those are the roses in my garden. I did not plant them. They were here when I  came to live in my very small house many years ago.Some of them have the smell of the "real roses" that we don't find any more.People ask me sometimes if they can take one or more from the flowers and i say why not. I like them in the garden but I can understand the desire to have this beautiful flower inside the house. A day before yesterday was our Remembrance day and I noticed that more people asked me for the red roses.
