Now It's very cold here, in Israel but the morning was warm, without any cloud in the sky, No rain in Israel for a month or more.. we're hoping a real winter will come in a day or 2; Israel needs some water..
Walking in the sun makes me feel very good , not in the summer of course.. so here you can see part of me ( my shadow.. ) in the sun..wait we're going to bake some new cookies in a minute or 2..

I was walking,and walking , the sun was so good; Suddenly,near a big garbage can.. she was lieing there.. looking for some food or just enjoying the sun like me.. here is she :You have to enlarge her photo : a white cat with green eyes.. she was watching me ...

The evening comes here very early, in this time of the 5:00 afternoon It's dark outside.. and cold; you can wear another sweater, drink another cup of Tea.. hot , with honey or brown sugar (no milk - thank you); and you can bake something, you'll become warmer in few minutes, yes It's true. So, I took my very old notebook ,here :

I was looking for a new recipe , maybe for any cookies , without too much eggs (4 eggs were left in the fridge) .. I was reading recipes ,most of them were old and my favorite; here is the Hebrew recipe for the cookies I've baked today: Oatmeal and Orange cookies ;
(that pink bookmark was made by me some years ago..)

What a timely post! I was just looking in my pantry and trying to decide what to make with a huge thing of oatmeal I had. I found a recipe for oatmeal bread, but I think I'll go for the cookies! Sounds yummy!
