Looking Forward To Mondays?

When I was single and married without kids I hated Mondays (this should not come as a shock to anyone) and LOVED Fridays (again, no shock). The weekends were bliss. Saturdays were for sleeping in, drinking coffee on the porch, reading the Wall Street Journal cover to cover (minus the business section), maybe even reading a book, long walks with the doggie, and studying Hebrew. Sundays were farmers markets, grocery shopping, laundry, errands, and cleaning, the gym and fancy coffee… all done together as a couple. Since the nugget was born, everything......

One Of My Favorite Things

I am part of a bloggers group and they have been having a summer challenge… And I have been totally slacking off. In looking back on some of the topics, there was one I really wanted to write about… “Share Your Favorite Thing” it was called. They said “Pretend you are a celebrity and you are telling your fans all about the thing you cannot live without.” I will tell you the first thing that popped in my mind. TOMS Classics. Legit, these save the day all the time lately. Don’t know......

4 am

I woke up the other morning and it was 7:15. There was no screaming. No crying. No dog nudging me with her nose. No husband snoring or blowing his nose or brushing his teeth with the loudest electric toothbrush on the face of the planet. I just woke up.   It was magical. I never thought I would say that about 7am. I was the kid (adult) who, given the opportunity, could sleep until noon or 1:00. I used to bemoan the loss of the day while feeling super rested. I’ve forgotten......

An Ode To Parsley

I know, I know… don’t yell at me! I haven’t been writing in forever. I promise that you are back on my to do list, bloggie! Life has been a bit busy with my adorable little guy and moving and etc etc… To tide you over until I am back, here’s a little piece I wrote for Mazeltot.org – As a child, Passover was always a big affair. Growing up as the granddaughter, niece, and daughter of rabbis, we always hosted large Seders. Generally, the first night was the Seder at shul......

The Engagement Interlude

Ever since I got engaged I noticed a few things. First and foremost… I can’t think about anything for any period of time without wedding planning creeping into my brain… it’s like a bug… an awesome frilly, lacy bug… but a bug that distracts me from work. 🙂 Next, the day after we got engaged, everyone immediately asked “So when is the wedding?” “Where are you getting married?” OY! I was still distracted by the shiny object on my ring finger… much less had started planning. Then the oddest thing started happening…......

A Hero In My Eyes

If wearing eyeglasses was a club, I would be getting my 30 year pin in a couple of years along with a tacky gold wristwatch… I might have run for president. There might have been a messy power struggle and a splinter group who later rejoined because they knew I was the best thing for the eyeglasses crew since the invention of nose pads. Okay… that fantasy is all well and good but let’s get to the point. I wear glasses. I’ve worn them since I was three years old. That first......

Passover and the Media

Okay, I have to give a big kol hakavod, big ups, to the artistic Jewish community as of late. Seriously. With the Maccabeats getting millions of hits on YouTube, a revolution has been spawned and I am super excited about it! Well, the Maccabeats have taken a vacation for Pesach and to let some other groups shine. Now, don’t get me wrong, I miss my ‘Beats but these videos for Passover are phenomenal! Here are my favorites:...

On a dig with a 10 Mexicans who can speak okay English, one Slovakian who also speaks okay English, in Israel with Israeli workers who speak Hebrew......

Cats in Israel

I literally just watched a woman…a HUMAN BEING… cross the street to get out of a CAT’S path!! What?! Since when do human beings have to get out of the way for cats? Since I live in Israel, actually. The cats have their own underworld here. I sincerely believe there is a cat mafia and they have cat stores and little corrupt cat government officials. They run the place! No but seriously, what’s with the cats in Israel? Well here’s the short story....
