Elsewhere in Blogosphere

  • Ilana-Davita tells us ten reasons to visit Italy, and she also gives ideas on how to keep kosher while traveling in Italy.
  • Like mother like daughter: the blog of Nadine, who is the mom of EllieVellie (Ellie tells me she translates the comments for her mother)
  • I do like design tutorials, especially ones that teach watercolor effects. The top one on this post looks nice, but then something about the graphic bothers me. I keep thinking it’s almost the Jewish month of Elul, and then it’s almost Rosh Hashana – “Teshuva, tfillah u’tsedaqa ma’aviren et roa’ ha-gezaira” (repentance, prayer and charity avert the evil decree) – obviously, the post was written by someone who has never been touched by a Rosh Hashana service. Read Jonathan Sacks on Teshuva, Tefilla and Tzedakah.
  • I just started reading this book Caspian Rain, book review by Jew Wishes.
Ilana-Davita says

You know what they say about great minds... One similar link and one similar topic! I like the way you've used the thumbnails instead of the written text.
I'll go and read rabbi Sacks's article.
Thanks for the links.

James says

Thanks for the link to Rabbi Sacks article, Leora. It was a good one.

Shabbat Shalom!

Jew Wishes says

The photo is lovely, and the flowers are so delicate looking.

Thank you for the mention and link.

Ellie says

Lovely green! The hens on the farm was my absolute favorite this week!

wild and beautiful...

Carver says

Great round up of your weeks post. The chicken and the watercolors may be my favorites but they are all so wonderful. The composition of the red building on either side and the green in between is fabulous.

Leora says

Thanks. I think I am going to do this in the future for reviews, post favorite images from the week instead of just text. I appreciate the end of week visits and the commentary.

Mrs. S. says

Great idea! I enjoyed looking at the collection of images - each one so different but all beautiful.

Have a wonderful week.

I like the images collage along with the review. How organized you are Leora...
