A HUGE day of prep for this Hebrew Gal 🙂
I love getting up early. I can get so much done early in the mornings while everyone else is asleep. But then I’m ready for bed about 7 or 8 pm. This morning I woke at 4:00 am to do some school, homework and exercise before my big day of prep!
Waved at Daddy as he Drove by
Ran out to the street to watch Daddy (Isaac) drive his semi-truck by our home early this morning. He went to drop or pick up a load in a town down the road from us. Haven’t seen him all week. Fun to watch him drive by.
Maggie at School and Town Errands
Hadassah and I did errands. Dropped in at Maggie’s school to see how her first cake decorating assignment was coming. Took my Passover gift to my Jewish natureopath (forgot to do that yesterday when I saw him, ugh!),
Angela: Friend from Long Ago
Guess who I ran into at Costco? I’m a newbie to this Costco, but an old friend, Angela was there! We chatted for an hour. Haven’t seen her in forever. Our girls went to 1st grade together. Last time I saw her was when she came up to our tipi for Chanukah long time ago….
Baking up a Storm
Raced home. Cleared out the kitchen and made charoset (with and without nuts), sweet matzah and spicy tabbouleh salad for Judah’s Passover tonight at Wendy’s house… Of course, the repair guy came to work on my stove while I was covered in flour making my 30 matzah’s.. LOL! He asked if I was preparing for Easter…. I emphatically declared that I was not. I was preparing for Passover. 🙂
Didn’t have time for a shower, but Isaac got home with time to get a 5 minute shower! We made it to Wendy’s house right on time.
Rabbinical Reckoning / Biblical Reckoning
Of course, celebrating tonight is on the Rabbinical reckoning. We don’t normally do this, but our friend Wendy and her family are so special to us that we wanted to be with them for this Season and we weren’t throwing a big Seder to invite them to this year. So here we are.
Our family will be celebrating the Biblical reckoning of Passover on Sunday (April 21, 2019). Because there was heavy cloud cover in our area for 3 days around Rosh ha’Shanah, we are counting 14 days from when Israel saw it–––the evening of April 7, 2019 (making April 8th the first day of the Month of Aviv, in the year 6019 From Creation). Though, I know some are celebrating it on on Shabbat (counting from personal sightings they had on April 6, 2019). It definatley was a difficult sighting at the new moon this month. Had we seen it with our own eyes we would have started counting the 14 days to Passover from whatever day we had seen the new moon on at Rosh ha’Shanah.
We had a lovely time at Wendy’s for their rehearsal! 🙂 She had a TON of teenagers there! Super fun! She is a Feast Diva for sure! 🙂 She incorporates foot washing into her seder. Cool! My matzah was a hit. 🙂 My Unleavened Bread cookbook is available on Amazon: The Mastery of Matzah
Got to bed super late for me (11 pm). Hope I’m up to the long trip tomorrow….
