It's a "short fast" today. Just from the first light of dawn until darkness.
Last night I turned off my alarm and decided to "sleep late." Usually I'm up very early 5-5:30am. I drink a lot of water and then a lot of yummy coffee, and then "eliminate." And yes, while doing that, I'm on the computer. Only after all that do I shower, get dressed, doven (say morning prayers) and start my day.
Today I felt myself waking up, but didn't have to move, since the alarm was off. I fell back to sleep and finally got up just before 8, which is when I'm usually going off the computer and doing stage 2 of my morning. So I started with stage 2.
I'll start cooking soon. Must get ready for Purim.
I used to make homemade pizza and vegetable soup for breaking the fast, but now I just make the soup. I'll make enough for the the Purim feasts and Mishloach Manot. I also have some mushy bananas just aching to be made into a cake.
Isn't it terrible that I have to spend a fast day involved with food?
