On retreat

I'm up in the north of Israel, attending a spiritual retreat for women. We'll do yoga, paint with watercolors, play music, hike, and eat vegetarian food. In my free time I'll visit with my daughter Menucha, who is in school here, and work on the two small hand quilting projects I brought along.
Last night I ate out at a charming little French bistro type of place. All I had was a humble bowl of lentil soup with some toasted sourdough bread. It was a simple meal, but eminently satisfying. I slept in a charming little room at my friend's bed & water bottle included.
The retreat begins today. Am looking forward to what the day will bring.

Sounds like you're going to get a lot of enjoyment from your retreat. I read that you're going to be getting snowed on over there this week so stay warm.

It sounds like you are having a fantastic time. Enjoy and hurry back to us. The 1/2 square triangles look familiar.
Love, Etty
