Let The Fish Swim…

I had to write my previous post before I could write this one because the first is the foundation of the second. The frustrations of being an introvert in an extroverted world, of having my personality traits seen as flaws instead of unique differences,…

Thoughts About Thinking

I am almost never bored because I think that even the most common things are interesting to me. I think stories about every day life are fascinating because they give glimpses into how people live. I also am grateful to those who write stories…

My Friend Fred

This blog is not primary about my faith, but my faith is woven into my life. I sometimes write about celebrating Shabbat so I thought I’d begin this post by sharing a little bit about why I celebrate it though I am not Jewish…

Errands, Stories, and Shabbat

All this talk about herbs and spices makes me think of a landscape supply company that we drive by whenever we go to the City. It has dozens of huge mountains of different types and colors of mulch and dirt. The different colors always…

Herbs & Spices

After a slow start to the morning and a late breakfast, I began to work on lunch. I decided to make Ground Beef Vegetable Soup. I cooked the ground beef, cut up the vegetables, got it all simmering together and then EJ, Danny, and…

Hebrew & Herbs

When I came downstairs this morning, JJ was up. In the last few months I have exclaimed, “Wow! You are up early!” but I stopped saying that because he always responded “No, I am not up early. I am up still. I haven’t been…

Times Two

This has been a busy week, relatively speaking. Sunday afternoon EJ and I went grocery shopping. We have always gone shopping together. Going together makes grocery shopping more fun and less of a chore. We enjoy being together and with both of us adding…

Nice & Boring

The days of this summer are passing by with one day blending into another without much change. I don’t mind that. Sometimes co-workers ask EJ “How’s life?” When he replies, “Nice and boring,” they respond, “What? Really? No, you want it EXCITING!” EJ says,…

Bread & Calendars

This morning I woke up shortly after 7 a.m.–which used to be when I always woke up, but lately it is early. I made a pot of coffee and then started preparing the dough for Challah bread. Usually I braid three strands but today I…
