It's My Birthday

For me today marks the end/beginning of another trip around the Sun. I just went to my post from last year and frankly, I am much happier, healthier, and more hopeful than I was a year ago. That's wonderful because I wasn't that bad off then!

I've started to receive cute and loving b-day wishes - cards and emails. It's so lovely to be remembered!

Yesterday I went to Y's parent's house and we swam and ate lunch together - delicious fun. Y's mom bought me a spa day at the David Citadel Hotel with breakfast, a massage, and a pool pass. She got one for Y too so that I won't be lonely! :) I got a card from my mom that said fun packages are on the way - gifts from the US! Yeah!

Last year I did a list inspired by David over at Treppenwitz of things that I want the world to know. I am pondering my list of 29 things!

In celebration of my big day, the peace lilly that I have been caring for since I moved to Israel decided to bloom. I've had these plants before, but I've never been able to get them to bloom again. I guess this one is getting the right food and light.

While I am uploading pictures, check out this one from the other night. It's the moon coming up over the apartment building across the street. It was amazingly bright. Earlier in the evening it was huge and orange and I saw it rise right over the Tower of David from where I was having dinner.

I chatted with Savtadotty last night and she's in the running for the best new blog name: Show and Tel Aviv. I have also been considering Kiss and Tel Aviv. So put your thinking caps on and help me come up with a name. I don't know if I want it to be limited to Tel think Israel in general....hmmm.

Happy Birthday!! NYC loves ya, John, no matter what you call your blog!

Unless you pick a really stupid name. Then we'll have to have you shunned.
