Breakfast today made me feel like a little old Russian lady in days gone-by - a boiled potato, with a shmear of butter and some salt. Lunch was a whole bowl of golden-jasmine rice. Dinner finally got me a protein fix - a big bowl of chicken soup with chicken and potato in it.
Today I packed up the 'wedding night survival kit' for the couple, packed a 'for the party' bag with shtick and whatnot and packed up clothes for an extended weekend (during which I'll be sleeping in a different bed every night for 3 nights running.)
The petek from the post office finally arrived (just after the post-office closed for the day) so tomorrow morning I'll be heading there at 8 (when they open) to pick up my package! I really hope the book came out nicely - I'm so excited about it (even though I know I probably shouldn't be until I've seen it.)
Dum and Mrs. G arrived in The Holy Land early early this morning - so we all 'skyped' for over an hour just for the heck of it - so we could pretend that I was there partying with them.
According to our trusty-dusty weather-predictor there is only a 20% chance of rain tomorrow - so I'm hoping there won't be any. (I know - the country needs it - but I really don't - not on my head while I'm driving and trying to get places alive and in 1 piece.)
Z's kippah for the wedding is just-about ready to be worn at the wedding. It's been in the 'flattening' stage since Saturday night when we got Home. By flattening I mean it's been under; 'The Complete Hitchhikers Guide' (that's all 5 novels), 'The Great Book of Amber' (all 10 of the chronicles) and even under the hardcover edition of Guy Gavriel Kay's latest release which is quite hefty - all at the same time.
Speaking of Z - he went on a field trip to Tel Aviv today. I forced him to feed the leftover sugar cookies from last week to his classmates - since I figured a busride was the perfect chance to pass them around. I actually got a present from this adventure - a couple of really pretty pieces of sea-glass. I love sea glass.
Tomorrow is 'today' - hard to believe - but it is!
Photos to follow - I should probably charge my camera batteries!
