Happy birthday, LJ!

Today is Mom’s birthday! I’ll call her later tonight – we are 8 hours ahead of Arkansas, so I’ll have to wait. From what I hear, she has probably been snowed in since last Thursday.

It’s sunny and cool today here in Tel Aviv. ┬áJohn and I went back to Hertzliyya this morning for an appointment, with an obligatory breakfast at Benedict’s up there. I had a delicious spinach omelette.

Last Monday night after work, we went to our DCM’s home for an NPA meeting; we had a guest speaker, Barry Rubin. He is a fairly well known author and Middle East expert. It was interesting to hear his take on the events in Egypt.

The week was pretty quiet around here – just work as usual. I was very happy last Sunday afternoon to find an excellent nail salon. I had let my nails go and they were in terrible shape. I’ve been intimidated about going to a salon here – silly, I know. But this place is great and I will definitely be back there this week.

We stayed in on Saturday, which was nice. I needed to get organized with our taxes, so I spent several hours with that. I finished reading an excellent book, “A Simple Plan” (you may remember the movie with Billy Bob Thornton), and we watched “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.”
