He sent money to UNICEF for mosquito nets, in my honor for Mother's Day. He knows I've had malaria, and dengue, and lived in Africa for two years, and care about the children and mothers who get sick because they happen to live in a malaria zon... Read more

Mixed feelings about bin Laden's death

Monday, May 02, 2011      10 comments

This comes from Rabbi Arthur Waskow of The Shalom Center, but it expresses my feelings: How might we address the death of a mass murderer? The Torah describes Moses and Miriam leading the ancient People Israel in a celebratory song... Read more

DH and I arrived at the Carnival Village a bit after 7 PM - musicians were setting up, food booths were open, parents were wandering around with small children since it was still early. Little boys ran around throwing various popping and explod... Read more

I think a student complimented me today

Friday, April 29, 2011      5 comments

But I'm not sure, LOL! One student came rushing in during the middle of class - she said she had to stay at science class, she was finishing her project that was due today. I explained that she'd be absent from my class, but that she had t... Read more

For Watermellen and other Fashionista friends

Okay, I managed to find a decent size photo of my Eileen Fisher sequined vest - I wore it with a charcoal grey silk tank top, and black linen cropped pants. And red Birkenstocks for a pop of color. Here's the vest: Read more

My sequined vest is making me BOLD today

Wednesday, April 27, 2011      6 comments

Seriously - I don't know what has gotten into me. First period (advanced art) - I had to yell at a boy for throwing a girl's stuffed toy - I called him over, gave him a hug, and said that boys like to tease, but girls really don't like it. ... Read more

Little Mr. Orange Kitty

Tuesday, April 26, 2011      6 comments

That's what I call him - the teenaged (or so) young cat who lives in back of our school, by the dumpster. Although he also hangs around the shelter for the school kitchen's gas tanks. I've been in charge of feeding him since last week, whe... Read more

Weird weather

Sunday, April 24, 2011      3 comments

I don't even know how to describe the weather - it isn't fog, or smog, or Sahara dust. Maybe haze? Everything is cloaked in a pale grey ether, so that things are indistinct and fuzzy and a different color than usual. Although now that it'... Read more

What SparkGoodie do you buy yourself?

Friday, April 22, 2011      7 comments

Periodically I win that SparkGoodiePoint thing on the spinwheel. I'm never sure if I can use them for someone else - so I usually "buy" something that I wouldn't normally get. Or might not have in real life. So, I was wondering - all my S... Read more

MIL and matzah balls

Wednesday, April 20, 2011      8 comments

My mother-in-law (may she rest in peace) always made matzah balls for every Jewish holiday. One year, she fell and broke her arm. (I can't remember how she broke her arm - she was in her 90s - the best was the time she couldn't open the microw... Read more

My niece posted that she lost her phone. Last night. Today, she posted that she found it. I went down the hill for my pedicure, only to find out from my little pedicure lady that I'm scheduled for tomorrow. I could swear it was for today... Read more
