green little review

Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

Just a quickie since we didn't have dinner till after 9 p.m. and I'm not done with candlelighting notes (we are not doing stupid little poems and songs for each person, they will just have to deal). Had a chaotic day, as expected -- picked up Daniel after his Spanish final, dad dropped by to visit with his brother and brother's son, in-laws arrived for quick 4 p.m. dinner. Then we went down to the temple for what turned out to be a really nice evening service -- it was supposed to be Shabbat Under the Stars, but due to muddy conditions was moved into the small chapel, yet remained casual with lots of music and a terrific informal sermon about making the everyday holy.

Speaking of penguins, clearly Pittsburgh knew what Adam wanted for his Bar Mitzvah as they delivered his gift a night early. Congratulations to the Penguins on winning the Stanley Cup!
