Visiting a farm


This afternoon I went to a little near-by farm together with my little nephew and sister in law. We had a really nice time together patting animals and taking pictures of them. However, the best thing about it was being able to cuddle with a couple of baby rabbits that were so cute that I just wanted to put them in my hand bag and take them home with me. I cannot get past just how adorable they were, and how calm they were lying in my hand.

Never let me go

I am beyond excited for this movie and have been watching the trailer about a dozen times over the last few days. I'm a sucker for period dramas (although this is actually not really one with the movie being dystopian), but what makes this movie different is that it's also a sci-fi movie. I've been reading the plot summary of the book (which I now also want to read!) the movie is an adaption of, and found out that it's set in a boarding school where the children are clones who are grown in order to provide organs of transplants with the final donation being fatal. It sounds so creepy, yet the movie looks beautiful and I can't wait to see Carey Mulligan again since I loved her in An Education.

Yarkon Park

Yarkon park

On Tuesday evening, my boyfriend and I went to Yarkon Park, which is a massive park in Tel Aviv. We'd planned on going there for quite some time, but due to my boyfriend being extremely busy with his final project in architecture it was always canceled. I had been to the edges of this park before, but not ventured deep into it like this time. Being there was absolutely wonderful with the enormous green lawns, trees growing sideways so that one can easily sit in them, and a lovely lake with boats and ducks. Somehow, it reminded me of being in a completely different country. We both agreed that we need to go back there again, especially to rent a boat and sail in the lake which is in the park, or to just have a little picnic there - something this park is surely perfect for.

Staying in

Green stripe dress

Hello to all of you - I hope you've had a good weekend! I've been, for the most part, staying indoor in order to avoid the sun (my arms - especially my lower arms - have gotten way too tan without my blessing!) and the heat (It was 35 C here on Friday!), trying to cook recipes I hadn't tried so far (like baked eggplant in tomato sauce) and reading Haruki Murakami's "Kafka on the Shore" and Jonathan Safran Foer's "Eating Animals". A nice, relaxing weekend, one of the best ways to spend it, in my opinion.

Discovering new places.


These photos are from last weekend when my boyfriend and I went for a walk to the outskirts of this town and ended up in a very nice place with fields, trees and a little forest. We walked around a little bit and got to a little kibbutz as well, which was fun to see. For some reason my boyfriend had never been to this place before, even if he has lived here for years and years and I think that's pretty odd. I think I have this compulsive need to get around, get to know and see every little corner of a place as fast as I can once I get somewhere new. I've been that way ever since I was little, and at the age of 25 it's maybe a little bit childish finding enjoyment in exploring, but I just can't help it.

The dress I am wearing is one that my mother bought for me at a flea market in March. It's vintage and has the cutest little buttons and check pattern. I don't get a chance to wear it much because of the heat, but in the evenings when it's a little cooler, it's just perfect!
