Birthday gifts

Hello dear readers,

It's been a long time since I last posted.  My husband had serious health troubles with several emergencies trips to the hospital.  Thank god, he's better now with an installed pacemaker which brought him back to life.  My birthday, a few days ago went by quietly without celebrations.
I got gifts from Fabiola, my two daughters, and grandchildren.

From Faby

Thank you dear Faby for your lovely handcrafted gifts.

From my granddaughter Tali - a hand drill

From my daughters - Magnifying glasses which can be worn over regular eyeglasses.

Also received but cannot show here, from my daughters who knew I have no time these days to shop for a new wardrobe, a pair of jeans with a paisley blue and white top.

Some of the plants in the garden around our building are coming slowly back to life.  Here is one
with its miniature companion.  The miniature looks more alive than the r/l one.

Hoping to be able to do some work on the flower shop soon.



  1. Oh dear, ofcourse, we understand that you can't think of blogging, now your husband is in hospital. Hopefully the pacemaker will give him help and trust, I do hope he will recover soon. Take good care for yourself too, dear Drora.
    So sweet that your grand-/children and blogfriends have spoiled you with lovely gifts, enjoy it!
    Warm hug, Ilona

  2. No supe de tu cumpleaños a tiempo pero te felicito ahora, Drora; nunca es tarde para eso, no? Me alegro de que tu marido se recupere y de que las plantas vuelvan a crecer; las obras son espantosas pero todo pasa :) Te mando un abrazo

  12. First of all - my best belated Birthday wishes! It's sad to hear that it had to be a quiet one… and to learn about the reason why you have been so quiet lately. I'm very sorry to hear about your husband's new health issues… but I'm glad to hear the pacemaker makes it better. My best wishes to you - and for your husband's health recovery. - The photo with the plant in 1:1 and 1:12 was great, let's hope the real plant learnt something from the tiny relative. And you've received some wonderful gifts - enjoy!


  13. I'm so sorry for your husband and I'm glad to hear that he's fine now.
    I'm happy that you like my gifts. All the gifts are beautiful; enjoy!
