Simple Shade, It's Summer Already!
This year, for the first time in a long time, we had a full winter of rain. It continued raining almost until Passover. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to dry the laundry outside on my days off, but then suddenly the rain ceased. And when my son showed up for the seder, among the other repairs and chores he did for us, he put up the shade over the merpeset, balcony/terrace. I had asked him to buy it a few years ago. It's some black fabric that lets in air and keeps out the harsh sun. Having it up, easily hung on the succah supports-which he also rebuilt a half a year ago, makes the merpeset a heavenly place on a hot, sunny summer's day.
