Today we had the whole family here on our Unleavened Bread vacation together! 🙂 Maggie got to get on the beach for the first time in years; the girls and Isaac explored the tide pools again (Hadassah got her sunburn during this time — I didn’t even think to pack her a hat!). We flew our new kite on the beach; found some break from the wind in the beach grasses and I found an agate!
Today I woke up happy! I looked to be a clear sky day! It didn’t take too much effort to get Isaac out of bed to got for an early morning walk, stretch and prayer on the beach. Special prayer for Maggie as she is flying from Idaho to meet us this afternoon. Big girl!!!
Drooled over the idea of being a surf bum…
A breakfast of THE Matzah!
Explored the exposed corral at the tide pools during low tide….
Hiked up and ran down the cape (a huge sand dune)….
And guess what? Before flying our new kite and having a pineapple smoothie with Hadassah I got to lay in the sun. Okay, not out in the open as it was way too windy, but up next to the cabin it was lovely warm and nearly hot! 🙂
Though the day was blessed with sun it seems that strong winds accompanies the sunshine here in the afternoon. I should just make a note of that from past visits.
So, we bought a kite….
A meal of left-over matzah…
An evening walk with the dogs to the beach to see the sunset…
Maggie flew in and Isaac drove 4 hours to get her so she could join us for the rest of the Feast.
Exploring on foot. Exploring on a bike. Trying to get into the vaca mode still…..
Not much to say. Except…So, we don’t have cable at home. So, here at the cabin we have indulged ourselves with one show to watch last night and tonight… The Voice. Only to see our friend and local dude, Jacob Maxwell’s performances. And tonight was an emotional ride. Wow!!
Photoshoot with Isaac this morning at the local coffee house. We used to do this in college at the photo booths…. remember that? 🙂 They remodeled since we’ve been here – threw Isaac for a loop! I liked the happy color on the walls….
I woke up happy! 10 hours of sleep did the trick. I slept until 7:45 am!!! OMG! I never do that! 🙂
This Passover was so much different from the Passovers of our past… Instead of intense preperations for a crowd we had a chilly walk on the beach; a climb up the sand dunes to watch the para-salers float up the coastline; Isaac made the matzah for the seder and a trip to the local store to get parsley, but all they had was cilantro –– we went with that :-). It was a chill day…..
I always stress about what I post about how we spend our Shabbats. Why? Probably because I don’t know who all my audience is and how things will be received. I know that Scattered Israel is all over the board when it comes to how we are to spend Shabbat. Some people get pretty nit-picky and judgmental about it….
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!
Okay, I heard one of the most powerful teaching / sermon I have ever heard in my life this morning! Really!!! I was on fire all day long from it. I actually shot a video to invite you to get access to it, but I won’t have my invite up until next week. Stay tuned for the link to help me and your chance to hear this too! 🙂
It was amazing! I don’t recommend teachings very often. So trust me — if you want to understand the loops of failure and success (in relationships, business, your spiritual life — OMG!) you must see this presentation and then let it sink into your head and then your heart!
I have been struggling with some “residue” sickness in my throat since I was sick this winter. Actually, I’ve had some voice and throat issues since I got strep a few years back. The problem has really increased since I started speaking and teaching on the 3HGVS Show and for my YouTube videos. I’d literally “loose my voice” after speaking for 2 hours. It would be fine the next day. I really ignored it for the sake of continuing in ministry…But this quiet struggle is disturbing my inner shalom. 🙂
The following may be more than the reader wants to know, but whatever––it’s my blog. 🙂
Several of the Ladies of Teshuvah are blogging. I know of Dorothy, Ali and Michelle. 🙂 Any others? If you can, ladies, please share your link in the comments or somehow link our blogs! 🙂
A Lovely Momma and Daughter Day . . .
A full-on jog, my school and then my singing lesson. Bought Maggie’s plane ticket to join us for the Feasts at the coast next week. The sun shone in the morning with a yummy breakfast that Hadassah made.
