|A whole village of sukkot between buildings|
|Remember the frame for this one?|
A Bevvy of Booths?
The sukkot are sprouting between the buildings and on the balconies. Some have to be finished but they have until Sunday evening to complete them.
The friend who DD disappeared with last week for the whole day, came to our place today.
First they sat at the table and did all their homework for the holiday (we have 11 days holiday for the festival of Sukkot). DD didn't panic at all like she does when I'm helping her with her Hebrew homework - shows how much she doesn't trust me with it. Her friend was a great teacher, making DD read parts of the text and find the answers.
Finally the friend's dad came by on his way to the park with the dog and took them both to run around outside for a while. And then we're going to friends for dinner. Another great Friday.
|This just started growing in this pot. |
So I watered it and weeded out the other stuff.
It's a succulent of some sort. I have no idea where it came from.
A Happy Teacher
Without any interruptions this afternoon I am completely up to date with grading for my online courses. Hooray!
Operation Cuttings is coming along slowly but surely on the balcony. It would be so much easier just to pop down to the nursery and buy a box of plants ready to plant. But that's not the point. I want to grow plants not just arrange them in the pots.
|This was a weed in the succulent. I replanted it in its own pot.|
I'm waiting to see what happens.
Technically it's no longer a weed.
|The Lemon Scented Geranium from London is doing well.|
It's next to a dead geranium which isn't.
I'm keeping it in case it comes alive again.
I think I mentioned that we are now on holiday for 11 days. And for three of those days DD's school afternoon program runs a summer camp for the whole day including two meals. Another hooray!
|I managed to keep this gift from a pupil alive all summer.|
I managed to keep the pupil alive all year.
Every child at my Kibbutz School went home with a baby something to plant.
I found this one abandoned on the path so I adopted it.
