Clean Shaven, huh?

I changed my outfit 7 or so times before settling on the thing that I had been intending to wear in the first place.

So we started the Seder and things were going pretty well. Same old - taking turns reading and translating. And then the L-rd smote Egypt with some disputed number of plagues and they rained down upon us as well. Little pompoms, styrophome balls, Stuffed animals with boils, Figurines of ferocious animals, attempted sister-cide and more. Eli and I raced to see who could finish their 'Kos' first and as the room began to spin my teddy bear got a bit sicker as his boils changed to blue and green.

We finished at about 1:30 - officially - but, I fell asleep in the middle of Shulchan Orech.

I made it to Shul on time for Shacharit.

After the meal I spent the ENTIRE afternoon curled up on the hammock. There was a gentle breeze and the scent of the flowers hung heavy in the air. The pergola shades most of the mirpeset - so while it was warm, the sun was not baking down on me. The perfect lazy day weather. So, I decided to make the most of it and spent a good five and a half hours comfortably lazing away and reading my book. I haven't done that in ages. It felt good.

Yom Tov ended soon after and I headed out to meet up with a friend and to return some borrowed books. Of course, the appointed place of meeting was a good twenty minute walk from the house - which was good. I think I walked off most of the cake that I had eaten over the course of the day.

Tomorrow is Erev-Shabbos and Day 1 of Chol Hamoed. Hopefully we will be going to the beach with our friends and neighbors - the Yaffas.

Moadim L'simcha everybody!!
