Shabbat was pretty quiet.
Moshe and I were both getting over colds, so we kept things pretty simple.
With no guests, and Y at a friend's (see previous post), A and MD got some extra attention.
MD spent a lot of time playing with his "Diablo" (never heard of it? see here). He even taught his sister how to juggle with it!
I basically slept all Shabbat.
Our Shabbat Seudot (meals) were very nice, and I managed to stay at the table (awake) for the entire meal. I have not done that in a while.
Despite needing to rest a lot, I found some time to read to my kids, which I also have not done in a while. I read the first two chapters of one of my favorite books: Follow My Leader, by James B. Garfield. I remember this book as being really influential. It will be interesting to read it again as an adult.
I feel a lot better, but, unfortunately, I still do not feel well. I am still very tired (despite not receiving chemo this week).
And I am still, as we say in my family, "a pony" (i.e. I am a little hoarse).
The doctor said that my voice will come back quicker, the less I use it.
What can I say.... it is hard for me to keep my mouth shut! ;-)
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
When the Land Sings
