Israeli winter = Irish summer


Today a miracle happened. Kevin and I found ourselves having some free time together, without kids. Soem of the older boys offered to take the middle kids to a museum, the au pairs hd some fun activity with the littles, and we were just the two of us.

With this sudden freedom came the big question: What should we do? One of the things we decided on was having lunch at the park after my doctor’s appointment. Since it’s Friday and I don’t work on Friday I was wearing one of my new T-shirts and a ¾ length pair of cargo pants. We sat down to eat at the park, and a lady commented that I should dress warmer because it’s winter!

Well, it’s 16°C, that’s like 60°F and not raining… it’s like summer in Irelnd! And I’m not even exaggerating. I remember my summer vacation in Galway when the temperature never went above 17°C for the entire two weeks I was there. Plus, it was raining all the time. Kind of like the weather here right now. Because that is my “summer”, I’m unlikely to feel cold in the winter in this region of Israel. So just enjoying the sunshine and the mild weather and the company of the man I love… is like summer. Summer in the weather, summer in my heart.

And now a colouring page for lazy people:

      Yes, I was feelinga lot better. In the morning I had a dr. appointment and literally begged my doctor to do something about my back. 8 shots later things are awesome. 😀
