I spent a lot of today doing catch-up chores. Furniture polishing -- goes hand in hand with silver polishing -- and sorting, cleaning and check writing. I did get out for a long walk and a visit to the bank and grocery. In just two days the Jewish New Year begins. Days of prayer and afternoons with friends. Lots of cooking, eating and enjoying each other's company.
I also did a lot of blog visiting today and hope to do some more later. One of my regrets for this year is not being able to visit as much as I would like. I am hoping to be a more frequent visitor in the months ahead, but am not sure that will be a reality. Please know that you are all often in my thoughts and my prayers. Our services last approximately four hours on both Thursday and Friday. I will be happy to offer any special intention in my prayers for any of my blog friends. Please let me know if you have specific requests.

The promenade along the Hudson River
The photos are from a long, lazy afternoon in Lower Manhattan last month. Had lunch overlooking this lovely harbor scene -- the tall buildings in the photo are New Jersey -- and then strolled through the park.
Wishes for a sweet September!
