A beautiful walk (in total isolation)

Well, the final hectic rush of Passover prep and the seder night are behind us. It’s time to enjoy some well-deserved rest, and today the kids and I managed to sneak to the lovely, lonely fields near our house again. Of course, we strictly adhered to social distancing and saw nobody but this little agricultural aircraft which my children got very excited about:


It was such a beautiful afternoon. It had rained all weekend and everything – the earth, the plants, the sky – was delightfully fresh and there was a smell of honey in the air. Thousands upon thousands of flowers swaying in the light pleasant breeze. It was like walking in the midst of a lovely fairytale.


The ladybug season is here, too!


They had such fun exploring. It was honestly one of the most beautiful afternoons of my life.

As the shadows were lengthening, we went home in a roundabout way, making sure not to run into anyone.

I hope we can make it out there again soon. Stay safe, everyone!

  1. Sometimes a family can have the best times, right in the midst of extreme difficulty…so glad your day was wonderful…no doubt your older kids will remember it a long time too!! It reminded me of the 20 months my husband was unemployed and completing his 2nd college degree…the 2 kids still at home and we had some of the very best times we ever had as a family…and it certainly had nothing to do with money!! Stay safe dearie…I surely hope you are relatively safe there, wandering about away from the town.

  2. I just came across this video…doubtful the person knew they were making a kind of Challah…but would be so cute…and maybe necessary in future for each person to have their own, rather than handing it around and sharing germs etc Lhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DEH2RMHkfY …though we have a few more days of matzah eh?
