it's 9:30 a.m. in the holy city of zefat. it's really 8:30 because we set the clocks ahead last night. it was great for me because once it turned 2:00 a.m.(1:00) i fell asleep.
yesterday, i went to yoga and then went and bought the veggies and dairy products. i didn't get home until 3:00 p.m. it only took a 'mere' 4 1/2 hours to do that. i was then asked to watch sahar while his mom cleaned the upstairs apartment. i didn't mind much because i knew that i didn't have any more energy to do any cleaning tasks.
later that evening, my sister came over to work downstairs, and once again, i sat for sahar while the kids went to the supermarket. sahar was in the most delicious mood yesterday, laughing out loud and blabbing away. i couldn't keep my hands off of him.
last night i ate two white pitas with some avocado before i went to sleep. that is something that i rarely do and am happy to admit that i survived it. my plan of attack this morning is to wash the kitchen chairs and perhaps do the t.v area and couches. then i have to make dinner. it will be a very simple meal. i bought a package of niles perch fish and i'll make tons of potatoes. i can't be on the south beach diet while i'm slaving away because i do need carbs to get the job done. as long as i don't eat cake or chocolate, i am fine. the bananas and dates and walnuts get me through the day. and the little amount of honey that i add to the yogurt goes a long way for my sugar cravings. thank goodness, i am managing to maintain my weight.
i better sign off and get on with the day's work. at least we have an extra hour this week before sundown. that really helps. zvi just called from work to ask if i can go to town and buy a grilled chicken. how i'll manage that is really up to heaven. shabbat shalom!
