it's 11:00 a.m. and all is well in the holy city of zefat. i finally finished all my cleaning and set up my pesach kitchen at about 2:00 a.m. at one point, i felt a tiny bit desperate but i drank a cup of coffee and ate some bananas and dates for a sugar rush.
i finished my final sponger at about 3:30 a.m. i think i threw about 8 buckets of soapy water on the floor. it took forever to sponge it all outside. the dining room chairs are nearly dried. zvi will have to screw them together when he gets back from town. i already took out my pots and pans and utensils so it's already for me to start cooking.
i absolutely could not fall asleep last night. i was also cold and wet and snuggling with the dogs wasn't enough. by the way, they are all traumatized by all the sponger and their new pesach food bowls. anyhow, i jumped up at 9:00 a.m and persuaded zvi to help me burn the chometz outside. well, perhaps, his wife did the real persuaion. with all this rain and wind, it was no easy feat to start a fire. a neighbor passed by and dropped a bag of pitos and i looked down and saw fluffy, our newest dog, with a whole pita in his mouth. i quickly grabbed it away from him before he knew what was happening and threw it into the small fire that was still burning.
cloey the fat pincher dog, managed to grab a quarter of a pita and ran into the house with it. i chased after her like a mad woman but she consumed it all under the dining room table, before i could get a hold of it. are we having fun yet?
i just quickly washed and semi blow dried my wig. it's nearly dry. you can do that with synthetic wigs. i already cut up the toilet paper for the chag and i put up the eggs to boil. i'll have one last cup of coffee and then it's back to the kitchen. i'm not all that pressured because i have all day to cook. but i'd love to get a nap today. you can only wish.
a kosher and a happy pesach to one and all!
