  • The one where we lose our pet snail

    It was a dark and rainy day… oddly, since it was May 3rd in the Middle East. We had piled into the car, giddy about the surprise rain, and drove to the nearby nursery to pick up new flowers and herbs for our modest mirpeset garden. The kids were delighted by the plants, the rain,…
