The day began as a bright, sunny one. A friend came over, picked up the cookies I'd made for her and after dropping off Mark's Carepackage and picking up my Challah, we headed off to Starbucks.
My buddie Birdie and I had a wonderful time and I really needed to get out of the house.
The fact that Mark will not be here for Passover is hitting me hard. I keep wiping away tears.
It was Birdie who said I needed to get out and she even treated me to Starbucks.
But as the morning wore on, the clouds began to roll in and it started getting cooler. Soon, we were inside Starbucks, looking at the storm rolling in.
So, after a bit we headed to the store (I needed eggs for next week) and Birdie dropped me off and went to pick up her daughter at school.
It is cold and rainy which means matzah ball soup tonight. The bakery had chocolate chip Challah and that is a real treat for tonight.
A friend of my on facebook posted the following useful phases. I really could have used them earlier in the week., but I have written them down in my Phrase Book for future use.
And here there are:
I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid. I'm not being rude. You're just insignificant.
I'm already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.
It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm really quite busy.
And my personal favorite:
Thank you. We're all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.
Back to my Shabbat preparations.
Shabbat Shalom Ya :)
