A day late but NOT a penny short. And the WINNER is:

Sorry about not posting this yesterday.  We got in so late on Monday night/Tuesday morning that I have been totally zonked and didn't even go on the computer which is usually velcroed to my lap.


Without further ado I am announcing the winner of my 4th year blogaversary and this is:



There were 96 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

  1. Peggy Lee
  2. Emese
  3. Hillery
  4. CalamityJr
  5. Lisa
  6. Becky in Wa
  7. Edige
  8. too_busy_to_stitch
  9. Lisa V
  10. averyclaire.org
There are 96 instead of 102 because there were some duplicate entries.

So if Peggy Lee would email me with her choice of online store I will be pleased to get her a gift certificate there.


So until next time ...

We are in ISRAEL

I can't believe it.  I was so excited and the day has finally arrived.  We arrived in Israel last night and now I'm sitting in glorious sunshine.  It is just gorgeous.  The drivers are NUTS that's for sure.  Nobody indicates - guess all their indicators (blinkers) are broken or something.  I can see the sea from here and it is heavenly.  We are staying with my best and oldest (she is 3 years younger than me) friend and we have been friends since I was 16 so that's a really long time ago.


I will take some photos on Sunday and write again when I have time and let you see some.    My camera is in my handbag (pocketbook) and that's were it's staying right now because Dizzy (friend) is preparing meals for Shabbos (the Sabbath) which is from sundown on Friday night until an hour after sundown on Saturday night.  I think I would like to be more religious and do this because it means that even though Friday is a lot of work nothing but nothing is done from sundown Friday night until an hour after sundown on Saturday night.  HOW LOVELY.  You can read and eat and go to Synagogue (if you want) and walk but NO WORK AT ALL - not even the computer!!  This I could get used to I promise you and the weather is just glorious.  London was cold and horrible when we left yesterday and we arrived here in the dark - it gets dark here really early but it was so warm.  I was so excited to come and I was so right to be excited.


I'll tell you more and show you photos next week.


So until next time ...
