Last night my husband and son-in-law started putting up the "succah." It's the temporary "hut" in which one must "live" during the Succot holiday. Traditionally the building is done immediately after Yom Kippur, when due to our repentance, we're considered as "new people," since our slate of sins has been wiped clean. So it's important to start with mitzvot, G-d's commandments.
I may be a bad girl, but I really wish the walls could go up at the very last minute, since... they block my access to the clothes lines, view and sunlight. The kitchen becomes almost a dungeon. At night I can't see the stars through the kitchen window. OK, I'm a kvetch.
Now on a better note...
There are things I must do, which I should have had done earlier.
There are a couple of carnivals I must mention.
First is one I didn't notice, the Personal development Carnival, which is full of good advice. And the second is the 21st Carnival of Family Life, which has two of my posts! Take a gander at both. You'll find plenty to read.
And since I'm talking about carnivals, the Kosher Cooking Carnival will be posted in a couple of weeks! So please don't forget to send me links to posts about food, kosher food, traditional Jewish food, and that includes pictures, recipes, restaurants etc. Send to shilohmuse at yahoo dot com or via blog carnival.
By the time, this view is no longer blocked, I wonder how much more will be built?
