“Yored Geshem…”

We are staying just outside of Jerusalem in a village. This is the view from our balcony.

csc_0046Yesterday yored geshem birushalayim. That’s Hebrew for “falling rain in Jerusalem.” It did rain… most of the day. It was fine; because it was a catch up day for us, and we stayed in and did some administrative work. Like Cyprus, Israel needs the rain.

Late in the afternoon, it stopped raining; so I threw my jacket on and went outside to snap some photos. Everything was so green and fresh from the rain. The wet earth smelled so good! I was just enjoying the post-rain ambiance when I heard some bells tinkling. I looked up to see a group of goats walking down the sidewalk, just grazing and enjoying a break in the weather.

They were so cute and so curious…

And so hungry…

See their cute little collars and bells?

Potted plant on the front porch…

Well, have I bored you to sleep yet? I’ve been in way too long…
