Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.

Kool!!!

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

Probably not many as I am very satisfied with my life.

Some people might have a better cash flow, or a more influential position, or whatever the latest status symbol is these days, but I have love, presence & freedom.

With these I can make my life just about whatever I want it to be & I’m always working on it, which is great fun.

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture? Please describe.

If I were a tree I would be a tree.

If some nutter turned up with an axe to chop me down, I would try damn hard to squash the bastard on my way down.

Failing all that I’d like to be a huge bookcase full of wonderful books.

You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?

That’s easy, my husband, because he’s the only person I can stand being around for long periods of time, plus he’s very clever so he might just get us out of there.

Having said that, I do avoid lifts by taking the stairs whenever possible. I prefer to be on the move, rather than waiting, generally.

Maybe I’m just impatient.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Grateful for …

A gift basket of homemade cookies & ‘Oznei Haman’ given to me, on Wednesday, by the mother of two of the children I teach.

It is Purim today here in Israel & it is traditional to make gifts of food & to dress up in silly costumes. The festival celebrates the story from the Biblical ‘Book of Esther’.

‘Oznei Haman’ (Haman’s Ears) are the traditional treat for this holiday, they are a triangle of sweet pastry filled with sweetened poppy seeds & squashed together leaving the top open.

Needless to say, my diet has flown out the window again lol.

Looking forward to …

My husband & I are planning a trip into Bronze-Age archaeological country soon. We are both very fond of ancient history, languages  & civilizations, & there’s always the possibility of finding a flint arrow head or some such piece of treasure. This area has been settled for at least 10,000 years & it’s possible to visit many sites mentioned in ancient texts & on ancient stone & clay  tablets.

There you go .. Week 10 accomplished.

I hope you all enjoy.

    1. I went on a lot of those at school too but I didn’t really appreciate them then. I’m living in a very archaeologically rich area at the moment so it’s really been coming to life for me. I’ve read tons of ancient stuff over the years & it’s so exciting to be living so close to many ancient sites. I really feel I should take advantage while I’m here🙂
