From last Friday


Last Friday, we went once more for a short drive to the library and then to feed the goats. The photo above can be best described as "look over there!" - and, I'm sorry to say, I didn't think to ask my husband to snap even one shot where you could clearly see that yes, I'm in fact pregnant. :o)
She enjoyed waving that branch in front of the goats for a while, until quite unexpectedly, one of them poked a long tongue through the bars and grabbed it - and her source of amusement was gone, just like that, in a split second.

Today we have such hot, dry wind that we're staying holed up inside, waiting for better weather to poke our noses out the door. I heard that the cloud of volcanic ash from Iceland is going to reach Israel today - perhaps this has something to do with the weather.

So we're just having a nice, quiet day indoors. I love those days too. Errands and working in the garden will wait, right?

Hello!

what lovely pictures. Your daughter is around the same age as mine and i think it is wonderful how we can see the world through their eyes when they are small. Everything is exciting for them, even farm animals!

May i ask you where you buy your maternity clothing? Or do you sew it yourself? I find it so hard to get maternity clothing which is both modest in length and not too tight. The top you are wearing in the pictures is such a lovely color!

How dare the goat ear her source of fun. =)

and yes gardening and errands will wait for better weather. We are hiding indoors today also due to large thunder storms.

Anon,

The skirt I'm wearing at the picture is a lovely comfy maternity skirt passed on to me by a friend, among other maternity clothes she didn't need anymore. The top is actually one I used to wear when I wasn't remotely pregnant, but then I discovered it works really well for pregnancy. :o)

Unfortunately, my sewing skills are not yet developed enough to enable me to make my own clothes, and maternity wear stores are most often out of budget for us. So I just poke around and look in regular shops for things like skirts with an elastic waistband and tops/dresses which are loose at the tummy. When it comes to dresses I choose those which are also compatible with nursing.

Haha never tempt a hungry goat-- I suppose that is one of life's many harsh lessons ;)

She is so big! I remember that picture you posted of her just after she was born-- what a difference just a little time can make.

Goat's can get hungry:) She is growing up so quickly and I love her little pigtails:) Your covering is very pretty. I got 3 of them for my birthday form a family that lives in Israel. I would love to wear them , but I have one problem..........I can't figure out how to tie it!!!:) Kelsye

I can't believe how big little Shira has gotten! She's adorable. You are such a good mom to take her out and keep her busy and learning.

Oh Anna!....what sweet pictures of you & Shira! And I can hardly believe how very much Shira reminds me of my first daughter: same dark hair, same little pony-tails. She even had a pair of pants that exact same color. She is 18 now. Time has indeed passed so quickly.
