Signs of Spring: #sol15 24/31

Another day coming to an end.  Tuvia is on his way to bed, leaving me a bit of silence to write my end-of-the-day Slice.  Funny, I’m enjoying this downtime to reflect, breathe and capture something from my last 24 hours.

It’s been a depressing time since we returned from Cancun and watched our hopes for a change in Israel crushed as Bibi found a way out of his hole in the ground of one last desperate act to declare at under his administration there would be NO Tw0-State Solution, and then a dastardly jab at the left- accusing the Labor Party of busing in Arabs to vote for their ticket and what happened?  He united all the small  conservative parties on the right and he won, won big.  So we sigh.  Another opportunity for change, dashed!

and Ted Cruz is getting contributions for his presidential run from Jews4Cruz.  Come on.

And if that’s not enough, it’s still cold…

BUT… for the first time in a year, we bought turkey patties for dinner and Tuvia stoked up the grill and we welcomed our Spring even if we couldn’t yet eat out on the porch, it was warm enough to cook out there without freezing.

So here’s something good for today!IMG_6360

  1. That is the first sign! Grilling! I completely forgot as we have been re-blanketed with snow again just after St. Pat’s spring tease. This post is great. And looks delish!

  2. Celebrating small mercies Bonnie. Even if the political landscape is depressing and the spring air remains less than embracing, a brief bit of barbecuing saved the day and lifted the spirits.

  3. Politics just continue to depress, spring is hesitant to take a stand and declare it is her season, but at least the grill can give a taste of future meals on the deck.
