Hi, My First Blog Follower -

I am not sure what it means - to follow someone's blog - but I feel a little less lonely in the virtual reality of this blogged-to-death universe!

SHALOM! Мир вашему дому! Hello!

Моей бабушке Лизе (Лее) посвящается

Little Sundays

We had such a wonderful weekend even though I was so tired, I could just sleep through the whole Monday, if only I could. On Saturday, Baby 1 went to swimming with Daddy. Baby 2 stayed with me and we had a good time together. I miss spending time with her, she is such a precious little plump! The rest of the day was spent doing some house work, some cooking, some going to the park. Overall, a very good calm Saturday. On Sunday, my daughter had four of her classmates come to our house to write a class newspaper. That was so much fun. I had as much (or more??) fun than they did. We put the newspaper together, decorated it (can't have too many stickers... ever!) and colored things. We had some free time to eat and play. A very good time! The rest of the Sunday was spent doing some more house work, some more cooking and some more going for walks. Baby 1 was happy! Baby 2 was just sweet and yummy, all feet and cheeks!

Knitting ideas

I am thinking lavender, or camel or maybe turquoise.
This is a first sketch, it will be a project for my daughter, the older one :)

Now, I am also thinking, all these would look great but I DO NOT HAVE TIME to work on everything so I have to pick my battles :)

Kol Nidrei

Kol Nidrei

All vows, prohibitions, oaths, consecrations, konam-vows, konas-vows, or equivalent terms that we may vow, swear, consecrate, or prohibit upon ourselves - [from the last Yom Kippur until this Yom Kippur, and] from this Yom Kippur until the next Yom Kippur, may it come upon us for good - regarding them all, we regret them henceforth. They all will be permitted, abandoned, cancelled, null and void, without power and without standing. Our vows shall not be valid vows; our prohibitions shall not be valid prohibitions; and our oaths shall not be valid oaths.

People that are mine

Is it possible
to love anything more
than those two plump little feet?

Is it possible
to adore anything truer
than those two blue eyes?

Is it possible
to feel closer to anything
than to those warm big hands?

New page... no more compaining

And so I decided to start a new page, so to speak... I decided that rather than keep this blog as a collection of miserable little remarks, I would continue with it as a creative output for my unrealized creative potential ("creative" used twice in the same sentence is actually very creative).

Back to what this blog was originally opened for: I love to knit, spend time with my kids and I hope that one day I will be able to retire from my job to open an "arts and crafts" center for children.
