I am just exhausted and I am going to crawl into bed very shortly.
I got up early this morning and went to temple to help get the food ready for tonites dinner for the synagogue's welcome dinner for the Rabbi and tomorrow luncheon after services also in her honor.
So I came in and helped peel eggs for tomorrows egg salad, cut veggies for tomorrow's salad, cleaned all the portobello mushrooms gills and cut off their stems (which ruined my fingernails and permanently dyed them dirty brown .and cut up fruit for tonites dessert table after services. Got there at 9 and left at noon. Standing on my feet the entire time.
I stopped and picked up some mahjong jewelry for myself and my sister (gift when I see her in June) and came home.
I read a bit - started "The Last Song" by Nicholas Sparks. An easy read, haven't really gotten into it yet, so don't know if I will like it or not. Naturally I feel asleep reading and my dh woke me at 3:00 p.m.
I got dressed because I had to return to temple to help once again in the kitchen.
When I got there, we put butter on the table, made the salads, cut up the desserts we had baked and frozen last week and when time came served the food to our guests. The dinner was a great success and everyone loved the ambiance and the food.
I never realized how labor intensive a dinner like we had could be.
At services the choir sand and the Rabbi and the choir sounded great. A great joy was heard in the house of the Lord. Dessert was served after services and I stuck with fruit since I was nibbling all afternoon on the edges of the cut up bakery.
My dh just bid me a good night and I am following him very soon, as soon as I am through with SP, since I have to be at services at 9:30 a.m. and ready to sing at 10:00 a.m. .
