Sukkot, Part 1

We started our Sukkot on Friday, September 24 with a Thanksgiving style meal consisting of turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, squash casserole, apple banana salad, and pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream. It was delicious, and we had the table specially set with our Shabbat tablecloth and a special centerpiece.

Loving Sukkot

Well, we have been sukkoting since Friday, and I'm loving it. Daria was the first on here on Friday. Then Tom and Teresa were next. And finally Uncle Mark and Aunt Debbie. We all got our tents set up, and then enjoyed our delicious thanksgiving style meal. We did the Shabbat blessings over the bread and wine which set apart our time together. I got some great a video clips which I'll post next week along with pictures of course, but I'm almost exclusively using my iPad this week for the quick access on it.

On Shabbat, Daniel and Denna joined us for the day. They brought tomato soup to share which went great with the sandwich fixings we had. Then we all enjoyed Aunt Debbie's teriaki chicken and rice, Teresa's broccoli salad, Daria's peaches, and my cupcakes for dinner. That morning Uncle Mark had lead the Torah portion midrash. Then that afternoon, we informally midrashed. Afteer supper, we were joined by George, a friend of George's - Phil, and Phil's daughter, Nicole. Nicole is just two years younger than me, so it was nice to have someone around my age! We also had a y Kung man, Joseph, who had found us via join us. George shared on the importance of restoring the Father's name. After being up till midnight, we all called it a a night.

Speakaing of being late, it's late now, so I'll finish telling more tomorrow...

Hungry yet?

Sukkot is almost here. Daria got here around noon, and she along with my mom and I have been busy working on supper for tonight as we are opening with a Thanksgiving type meal - turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, squash casserole, sweet potato casserole, challah, apple banana salad, and pumpkin pie. Yummy! I can't wait.

It was nice to find some notes from fellow Crown staff who were missing me at the Crown Reunion. I would normally be there, but with Sukkot, I'm not there.

Sukkot is Almost Here!

Sukkot is almost here, and I can't wait! The Fall Feasts are always exciting...better thanChristmas ever was!

I'm trying out a blog post from my iPad this time around. We'll see how it turns out, and if I like doing it from here. If it does, it allows me more flexibility and hopefully I'll get back to blogging on here on a regular schedule. :)

Today, I got a therapeutic massage, and it felt wonderful. Ever since my fall on the ice, almost seven years ago, I've had ongoing neck and should issues. The chiropractor helped greatly, but it had gotten to the point where it just didn't seem to be lasting as well. I have a friend who's going to school to be a massage therapist and he explained that for the full benefit, you actually need both massage therapy and chiropractic care. Today felt heavenly, and I truly think my friend, Timothy's, advice was correct as she said my neck felt like cement even though I had just been adjusted on Friday. I feel looser than I've felt in a along time. Hopefully this will greatly help.

Well, it's off to bed I go...

Am I Really Another Year Old?

Yes, it's hard to believe that I'm another year old. I celebrated my birthday on August 22 with a family and a few close friends. It was a very special time. That morning, we ate breakfast with Nana and Gaga. It was a very good meal too. Then we returned home and grilled out a late lunch with friends. Spending the afternoon relaxing, talking, and playing games was just up my alley!
