I didn't touch the computer for several days (after my Friday's post). My "virus" is back, and I'm going through a bunch of tests to figure out what it is. The doctor said it could be flu or -wait for it - mono!!! WTF!!!

But I have some good news as well. I turned the computer on and what did I see? What a nice surprise. I got an award from Fashion After Forty! If you don't know Sher, go and read her blog. She inspires me to get off my butt and go do something! (OK, I can't really go skiing in Israel but it can translate into so many other things!!!)

Here is my award, in all her glory, sparkling and beautiful:

Now I have to share 7 random facts about me. A bit of self-digging is in order...
1. As a child, I wanted to become an ornitologist. I read books on birds, I learned their names, I watched documentaries on bird-watchers and researchers. Of course, now my job(s) are as far from birds as possible. But I still remember those days with a smile.

2. I've lived in 4 different countries. Russia till the age of 24, then went to Israel. And "run away" from Israel twice - to Canada for 4 years and to Greece for 2 years. We came back to Israel because Jack had to start school. It's been almost 6 years now and I'm getting restless...

3. I don't have any brothers and sisters, only cousins. You know one of them, she lives in Paris and posts here from time to time.

4. I've never been a sports person. A bit of aerobics here and there. But now, at the tender age of 40+ I discovered horseback riding and I love it. Horses are much better than "retail therapy".

5. When I came to Israel in 1990, I spent half a year on a kibbutz. Worked mostly in the laundry. Very interesting experience.

6. I am awfully lazy. There, I said it. I can sit and watch TV for hours. I'm the master of time-waisting. Which is not so good.

7. I had laser eye-surgery 3 years ago. Still happy as a bug :)

And now I'd like to pass this award on to 3 other bloggers.

-To Blogfashion - she has a truly inspiring wardrobe and amazing shoe collection.

-To Ephemera - who just finished a very tough challenge. I applaud!!!

-To I'll Be The One In Heels - I love her writing. And her style.

And now I'm going to collapse and wait for the test results. I do have some outfit shots from Sunday and Monday (I did go to work) but will post them a bit later.


  1. What a sweetie you are, Tanya! Thank you so much. :) I love posting about me, and will do 7 Random Facts.
