This morning I was supposed to answer the phones at temple but that meeting was cancelled, so I was able to sleep in.

This afternoon I attended a workshop that taught us about lithography. We learned the old method, which we need to know when the Jewish Museum exhibits the Chagall lithographs. In addition to this knowledge we were given the opportunity to actually do one. It was a very interesting process and I took home my lithograph plate and print. It looks like a 3rd graders art project. I am not talented in that area. But I enjoyed the process of creating it and now I really appreciate the time and talent of artists who do that kind of creation.

When I came home I intended to make meat loaf and mashed potatoes for dinner, but Bob got a call from his buddy who has season tickets for the Buck basketball team. He asked us if we wanted tickets for tonites game against the Toronto Raptors. We won and it was a fun evening spent with my darling hubby. We both had brats which we bought at the game.

Now I want to read my next book. "Return to Sender" by Fern Michaels. I really like the book. Its a fast read and a great plot.

Today I had our Monday Mahj game at my house and I invited a guest to be our fourth and we had a wonderful afternoon. I finally broke my losing streak and mahjed several times and won $5.25. Woo hoo.

This evening I made hamburgers for dinner and they were wonderful. Hit the spot.

I watched the Bachelor and again he gave Michelle a rose. Can't he see that she is a vixen. If he picks her then he deserves the life of pain and manipulation. What a foolish man he is.

Tonite I will finish my book "Southern Fried" by Cathy Pickens. Its a deceit read and I think most of you might like it.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, WOO HOO. GREEN BAY IS BRINGING THE LOMBARDI TROPHY BACK HOME

Now the super bowl is over and all the excitement and nail biting is over. During the third quarter I was hoping that the Pack wasn't throwing the game to the Steelers. I guess our prayers have been answered and the Pack finally won the SB. It was a close game and the Pack fought hard and well.

This morning I went to the synagogue and made the appetizers for the Donor Tea. Each of the tables had a tea pot for a centerpiece sitting on a mirror. It was a beautiful table set with tea cups and little plates for the finger pieces. The long table was set with all kinds of pastries and little finger tea sandwiches. It was just beautiful. The modeling went beautifully. There were six of us modeling 3 outfits. As I mention before I did not buy any of my outfits, but one of the ladies modeled a leather (Light brown) jacket and a brown and black graphic print polo shirt under it. I fell in love with it and tried it on after she was finished wearing it and it fit like a glove. I bought it. My cousin bought a big purse which was bright in color and very attractive. The Donor tea was very successful and those who missed it really missed a lovely time and great food. I ate a lot of fruit and had some crackers with melted cheese. I was very selective so I only took things that I would not ordinarily have an opportunity to eat.

I stopped at Subway on the way home for 1/2 subs for Bob and I during half time. I had a turkey sub and Bob had a BLT sub no dressings on either. Lots of veggies and a slice of pepper jack cheese. We ate lots of sliced veggies with my fat free dip and filled up on that so half time at 7 p.m. we had our subs which were fine and I had 3 clementines for dessert.

Now I am listening and watching the celebrations on TV and enjoying the Packers win.

This morning I got up, dressed and went to shabbat services. It was a beautiful service and the Rabbi even did a prayer for the Packers to win the Super Bowl.

On the way home I stopped at TJMaxx to buy some face products. I also picked up a great jacket on sale. It is just adorable and a classic that I can wear for a long time.

I came home and we decided to order Chinese and eat at home. So I had hot/sour soup and some egg foo young.

Tonite I have been watching some pre taped shows. I will be reading another book, since the 3 books I have picked up haven't been all that good. They went back to the library. I think this one is going back too. Its not grabbing me.

Again, I had to get up early because I was scheduled for a docent tour for Nathan Hale High School class. It was scheduled for 9:30 a.m. and fortunately for me I was there early because their bus came ahead of schedule.

The tour went well and as soon as I was finished which was about an hour, I went the the synagogue to prepare my cheese and black bean spread for Sundays Sisterhood Donor Tea. I made the black bean spread which was great and thought as long as I had extra cheese, red pepper, jalapeņo pepper and scallions I would throw in some lox I had in the freezer and make another spread. Which I did.

By 12:30 p.m. I was exhausted and came home and took a nap for about an hour. We had the left over blintz souffle and I watched the Barbara Walters Special which was very good.

I am tired and will go to bed early this evening since I do want to go to temple tomorrow for services.

So nite all and have a wonderful weekend.
