Beach, Birthday, and Biking

The weather, besides the last two days, is becoming like summer. This winter was probably the coldest since I’ve been here, and therefore going to make this summer the hottest ever (since 50 fifty years). So, you can kind of feel the heat coming on already. This is the greatest thing about Israel, especially this year. It’s early April, and I was able to go into  the ocean two days ago (although it was a bit cold). I got a bit of a tan even. So, the weather has been really nice really early on in the year!

Yesterday my dad and I surprised my mom with a day at the spa. Basically, my mom and I had lemonade, a 45 minute massage, and we could go into the Jacuzzi.  That was my dad’s gift to my mom and he also framed a collage of pictures of when we (the kids) were young with my mom. I gave here gummy bears and at the same place at the massage, she got a coupon for a free manicure and pedicure. She’s been talking about getting her nails done for awhile. So, she was really excited and was so surprised. She repeatedly told us how much she appreciated this, and how this was the birthday was the best ever. At first when she saw my present, she was like oh no this is way to expensive. But, I’ve been working really hard to earn the $56 and we already paid for it. I just feel like, everything my mom has done for me everyday, is well worth it. She deserves the best, and this is the littlest I can do for her. I love her so much! Also, we did a quick stop at the house and then go to the beach (which turned out it was too cold) and there were her favorite flowers – red gerberas – and Max Brenner chocolate (which is the best chocolate in Israel) from my brothers. Then, at the end, we went to my parents friends house (they have a boy in my grade) for dinner. It was very good, and I brought a cake that I had made (one of my best/smoothest/most professional cakes I’ve ever made) for dessert.

Finally, as a conclusion for this post, I have discovered something I can do to stay active. Basically, I had to quit the fitness/running program I did with one of my friends, because my headaches became worse. But lately, I’ve gone to the beach, running, and also bike ridding. I just realized something, as my dad and I have been “bi-athletes” (biking and running), that biking could become a possible sport. We start off running like 1.5 miles and then bike for whatever we are up for. I have found, the biking, although it is exercise, my head does not move up and down constantly. I don’t know if this effects my head aches or not, but bike ridding has something special, wear my head does not hurt afterwards. Of course, I have constant headaches, but this doesn’t exacerbate them, like other exercise does. In my next post, I’ll talk about my plan to become more fit. I’m not sure how it’s working, but I am starting to see some changes after doing this for about 2 weeks. I feel stronger, but because of me being able to eat sweets (it isn’t helping!). So, I might have to make a few cuts. Hopefully, not too much. But I’m working on this for summer! So more info on my exercising next time (probably tomorrow). . .

Here are some pictures of me decorating my cake (which is chocolate and it was 1 in the morning when I was just finishing up) and the special picture my mom took and sent to my brothers the chocolate and flowers.

If a recipe of  the chocolate cake is requested, I can make a post one that. I also have some other posts, I’m planning up that will come up soon!

    There are actually numerous particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to convey up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you carry up where crucial factor will probably be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impression of just a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

      Thank you. Sometimes it is hard to think of ideas to write about, but some how an event or something pops up for me to write about that seems interesting. I feel that if I don’t have anything to write about then, I shouldn’t write. Thanks so much, and I’m glad you enjoyed.

      Thanks again,
      Waverly
