I've been resisting thinking about autumn. I don't want to rush time -- it goes so fast on its own -- and when autumn appears winter is close behind. And I am not a fan of winter. But it's undeniable autumn is here. I ran an errand after eight this morning and the crisp feeling was here. By early afternoon it was late summer again, bright sun and no humidity.
Thank you all for your new year wishes. Services seemed lovelier than ever this year, and though they were long -- three and a half hours this morning -- the time went by very quickly. Ate lots of the traditional crisp apples dipped in honey and loved spending time with friends. I did lots of entertaining and enjoyed it very much. The big hit was a sweet and sour poached salmon and the tzimmis. Have lots of sweet potatoes left, so I think another batch is in order.
The apartment is just about back in order. The kitchen is cleaned up -- though I am having a plastic crisis with many containers and very few lids. Where do the lids go? Does anyone else have this problem?
I think it will be tough to get back into the regular work week. But a dentist appointment tomorrow morning gets me going and of course on Wednesday I'm so excited about Martha Stewart.
Wishing all a beautiful autumn week and all the blessings of this season.
