Tomorrow morning we set out for Trenton, NJ, then center city Philadelphia, PA. On Tuesday we are going to Harrisburg, PA, then back to Trenton, then home to Brooklyn. With a baby and toddler in the backseat of our clunker. I just “love” paperwork!The two good things about this are seeing my parents and lots of time to knit.
This is my wonderful baby! She has learned to pull herself up and stand holding onto the rail of her crib. She looks so happy with this wondrous accomplishment. Of course, now she does not want to be horizontal at all. She wants up! All the time! Next skill scheduled – letting go of the rail and sit down gracefully. At this point she just holds on for dear life and calls for hep when she gets tired.
I have been cooking for many years now. But never before with such spectacular results.Early last morning I woke up to a smell of smoke. And yes, smoke in large quantities does makes one sleepy. I forced myself to roll out of bed and go to the kitchen to take a look. My chicken soup was on fire, there were flames shooting out of the pot!I quickly put out the fire and started pulling the window open. Woke up the kids
The three day holiday is over. Would you believe me – I wrote up a wonderful post (at least I think so) about Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) and had not time to post it. Oh well… Now I have a whole week until the next Holiday – Yom Kippur.Am I knitting? Yes and no. The baby is teething. The poor thing is in pain and screaming, screaming, screaming. The only way to lower the noise is to hold her. For
I have not posted for a few days.Here is what have been happening!On Sunday I went to a Bar Mitzvah of my friend’s son. The kid did really well and it was such a pleasure to listen to him. It was also a pleasure to talk to my friends. I do not see them often enough! DD #1 went with me and stared in shock at her dancing Mom. She had no idea I could do that!Then, on Monday DH came down with the same nasty virus I had.
Yes, today is the day! My Birthday! The big 40! I made it! I feel like someone should hand me a medal and a water bottle. Wow! I mean is 40 years old, young or not very young? I keep thinking about it. I feel young, but my poor body is refusing to vote.I also keep thinking about who I am. Funny, just a year ago I though I knew. I was a Mommy! And I loved yarn. But all and all I was a Professional Mother. I actually p
I love staying with my parents! Part of the pleasure is humongous back yard they have. It is totally enclosed. There is no neighbours in the back and two couples on each side are almost always at work.So it is just us chickens. Or so I thought. Today has proved that there are little eyes watching us. At all times!My Mom strongly believes that “children have to be aired out” as much as possible! Since it i
Yesterday was first vocational Shabbos for my DS#1. So we both went to Kfar Chabad to spend this day (actually 2 days – Friday and Saturday) by his chevruta’s (partner for learning) family.Kfar Chabad is (was) small village established by Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe over 60 years ago. Its population – 99.99% Lubavitcher Chassidim (ultra-orthodox Jews). 0.01% – is non-Jewish worker. In the begin
I don’t know how often do you change your broom to sweep the floors, but in my family they last in average around one year. Maybe by you it’s much more, but now I would like to share some interesting facts and pictures about my Dear Mother and her household (and it’s not a bobbe ma’ase, although she is a Bobbe (Grandmother)). A few years ago whole our family came to Israel to visit my parents.
