~ All last week, our internet connection was elusive, at best. I'd write a post and sometime during the day, I would have a window of about 15-20 minutes to publish it and read the comments, and then it was gone again. So I'm terribly behind on email upkeep again. It will take time to get through them all - I do hope you understand.
It was, however, a hidden blessing as well, because the past week was especially busy in our household, and not having the temptation of internet meant that a couple of extra projects got done.
~ We're away from home again this week, so the second half of the week and weekend will be super busy once more - and then, finally, I hope to be back in the swing of things.
~ I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the dear people from all over the world who wrote to me during the past week and expressed their love and support for Israel. It was so heart-warming to read all your notes. God bless you.
~ I'm trying to eat more. Stepping on a scale a couple of days ago confirmed my suspicion that all my nice little cushion of extra weight has melted away. Nursing burns calories, and I'm not experiencing any of that famous increase in appetite. Being a vegetarian doesn't make this any easier. I do, however, want to gain just a bit to maintain my milk supply, so I'm enriching my diet with healthy fats. Tehina is one of the little extras I've been eating - rich in calcium, too. Olive oil, avocado, and yes, just a wee bit of butter will become my friends too.
~ I hope all my American readers had a good time celebrating 4th of... er... June?! Is it June? Thank you for telling me! Keeping up with two calendars is definitely a bit too much. ;-) Maybe I should give it up altogether and just wish us all a happy summer (unless you're one of the dear friends in Australia or New Zealand).
