Some friends wrote and expressed their wish to see a photo of the Seder table we attended, and/or photos of our Shabbat/holiday table. So I thought I'd explain that, as Orthodox Jews, we do not operate electric appliances on Shabbat and holidays, and time and space do not permit me to set the table in advance, so for now, taking such photos is beyond my reach. There are many sample photos of Jewish Seder tables on the web, if you care to look.
We stayed mostly close to home during Pesach, because some of us didn't feel very well, but we had a great time nevertheless - we are blessed to live in an area where lovely corners are abundant if you just poke your nose out of the door.
Some photos from a lovely spring walk.
And some interesting looking rocks found outside.
I have plenty of ideas which I hope to share with you all, as time allows, and countless emails I so wish to reply to. Thank you for your patience and understanding if it takes me a while to write back. It might take time, but I do plan to get back to all who wrote to me.
