Back home

In Israel for 2 weeks. lots to do and see. Yesterday we went to the beach near Ceasarea by the old Roman aqueduct with my lovely lovely baby niece Sheera. In the evening we had a birthday party for her mother - my sister. We baked a cake and I attempted to decorate it... Even tho I have never done it before, I had a very strong feeling that I am a brilliant cake decorator. I watch the Food Channel. Its easy.
It wasnt. I messed it up twice and had to wipe it of. I had a nice elegant sketch and the actual cake looked nothing like it. The piping process was frustrating and nerve wracking and the three of us working on it ended up screaming at each other and at least one of us stormed out during it. That being said, it didn't come out too bad and I now have a new found appreciation of cake people.
The main thing is that we had a great party and the cake was delicious. Happy birthday sis.

My little spot illustrations for the old Aramaic song that ends the Passover dinner. Had Gadya - Little Kid (as in baby goat) - is an ancient, ever so slightly more morbid version of the lady who swallowed the fly. Its all about the circle of life and the power of God.
Happy Passover!

p.s. zuzim is some form of currency

Little Kid, little kid. Our father bought a kid for 2 zuzim. 
Little kid little kid
Came the cat and ate the kid. Came the dog and bit the cat

came the stick and hit the dog. Came the fire and burned the stick

Came the water and put out the fire. Came the ox and drank the water

Came the butcher and slaughtered the ox.
Came the angel of death and slaughtered the butcher

Came God and destroyed the angel of death who slaughtered the butcher,
who slaughtered the ox, who drank the water, which put out the fire,
which burned the stick, which hit the dog, who bit the cat, who ate the kid
Little kid, little kid, that our father bought for 2 zuzim. Little kid, little kid
