Post Fast, Pre Shabbat
Yom Kippur is past us. For me, this was an unusual fast. It started on Wednesday when I woke up with a stomach flu. No food for me. I subsisted on tea and honey. What a way to prepare for a fast. Kil Nidre went by in a fog. I sat the whole time since I didn't have much strength at that point. Fortunately, a 12 hour nap brought me back to full strength and the rest of the fast went fast. No headache this year, which I can either attribute to not eating the day before, or to having new reading glasses. Your guess is as good as mine.
I am a bit worried about all the seminary girls this year. We had a virtual flood of girls pre and port Rosh Hashana, but now, we have no-one. So, what gives? I think that the girls just forgot that there were soooo many holiday's back to back. I am expecting some desperate calls in the next few days.
Last shabbat, we had a dairy meal for Shabbat lunch. We liked it so much that I'm going to try a dairy meal for dinner tonight and a traditional meal for lunch. I love beer-battered, deep fried food. We'll do that again tonight. If I time it right, the food should still be crispy!
No guests for dinner, and one of our good friends for lunch. It should be a quiet weekend! Given the financial turmoil, I think we deserve some quiet before the storm of reality hits.
