a week in perspective or something like that....

Last thursday we went to a wedding of a neighbour's son it was really beautiful all the ladies wore designer and the men suits. I have to admit I felt like a fish out of water  but we were determined to enjoy ourselves and  by the end of the evening we had a lovely time .  
Next day we went and had breakfast on the beach the weather was great and so was the company thanks DH

I saw this Moth  love the colour

My Sil made me a coffee the heart just appeared she said it was because she made it with love ,

Now this is my idea of fun getting dusty with some friends

With a little help from my friends

The frame for the wood shed is nearly finished

With a bit of help from Aled
We got a lot done

In the Kitchen
Pecans from my FIL's tree

Avocados from a friends tree 

 Peanuts from the fields 
 Olives from a tree in the garden

pomegranates from the kibbutz orchard. I don't have a vegetable garden anymore as it costs too much money to water .

No photo Friday

could not think of another title, 
For nearly twenty years I have a white shadow following me on four furry paws,this year she died it has been six months now and I still have not cleaned the window where she used to touch with her muddy paws to get my attention, sometimes just after I have cleaned the window( Grrr) in fact every time she dirtied that window I would get a cloth and clean it but not the past six months . I know why I cant clean that window it's because it means removing the last thing she did before she died ,the thing is soon it will start to rain and those paw prints will be washed away and that part of my life with my white shadow will be over.
Goodby little Sheleg my pussy princess with a heart of a Lion and dirty paws.

another day of "if I don't use it lose it"

I am really enjoying this day of "if I don't use it lose it" I started off with some material I have had for a while I made a drawstring bag for my crochet.In the kitchen we are slowly eating all the food in the freezer . because I always freeze any leftovers and they need to be used up first before we fill it up again save me on cooking this week.

Next I am going to look through a cupboard that is a hoard all cupboard  so I will be very busy a bit like a busy Lizzy 

or a busy bee

Sean is snoring and I think I know why

A weekend Salsa retreat over 200 people are camping at the end of our garden.

I was told by one of the dancers that Sean is a great Salsa dancer I think he might have joined the party last night.He was very tired this morning,just about kept his eyes open.
The builder aka DH is building a wood shed to keep the wood dry for the woodburner
I love these flowers but have no clue to their name I have a white one and a pink one

This is the Pink one anybody know what they are called? I call them rain flowers ,but I don't think they are that.
Amazing colour on these leaves 

and on this one 

And so many berries on this bush.
I might have a look at the dancing later.

This morning I have one thing on my mind

'If we don't use it lose it" and I think it is working so far one bag of boys clothes to give to a friend,a large amount of art supplies gone to the after school club as well as some games and that is just from one room.
also found some material to have a go of making bunting.I also saw something that we could use on the blog of "The Wife of a Dairyman" she has a giveaway 

 Off to start another room :)

Children in the junkyard

This tractor  is still working in a childs imagination
As for this Ford van I can't count the times I have been driven  to a city or work and even sometimes to the seaside like today

 If only  it could show how many kms it has been driven I know of one little girl that drove it to the moon.

As you might see the engine is being overhauled

The boys and girls that play here get excited by any new bit of Junk sometimes more so than store bought.
