New Year's Eve in Haifa

I had returned yesterday from my daughter's house in the Northern area in our country, where I played soccer with my two year old grandson. Well not really soccer. He kicked the ball toward me and I kicked gently back to him. He seemed to enjoy it a great deal , and - so did I!  I then read his favorite story to him and when it was time for him to take a bath and go to bed, I left toward my home. I drove for about half an hour. When I arrived at Haifa, it was dark and I drove on through the main  down town street, beautifully decorated with lights and stars.It gave me a happy feeling. I felt as if this year is going to be a good year.
This morning I realized that it had rained at night while I was sleeping. The rain has arrived after two weeks of very warm weather. My first thought was" here we are being washed from the dust  to greet the New Year". I enjoyed a pleasant relaxing Sabbath day in my home, enjoying Eric Clapton and Winton Marsalis new disk and by reading an enjoyable book.
Out of my window - The last day of 2011 - rainy
I wish a Happy  and prosperous New Year to all My friends and loved ones!
