we had a family sukkot celebration up at the black buttes on saturday. the weather was perfect. the drive was wonderful. i love the smell of the local myrtle trees.
yesterday was pastor appreciation...lots of desserts and some wonderful presents. gift certificate to sophia's thai! how awesome is that!? in a small town there are few choices for dinner, especially after 7pm. :-) this is our favourite place. the kids however choose ihop. which is where we ate tonight. funny face pancakes rock!
our week is pretty crazy, which is why i got my sp9 matches out last week.
(10 days left in the contest, be sure to read the end of the previous post for details.) i tried to mail a few swap packages, but forgot it was a holiday today. so that goes on tomorrow's list...after farmer's market ofcourse. (eat local!)
simcha torah is coming up this weekend. we have a friday night service to prepare for. i am watching everything align and am amazed. when we first moved here from denver, i thought we would never celebrate any feast or holiday outside our home. it is starting to feel homey, which is weird for a girl without a home town. :-)
after simchat torah the girls' bdays are happening this weekend too. tirzah's 11th and tali's 1st. i hope to get tirzah's project done this week, tali's sherwood sweater will be for chanukah it looks like. :-( i am using a lilac shade of lullaby that heartstrings had in grab bags. the whole thing will be under $5!
oh! cynthia got my second sock syndrom package i sent. the sock fit! hurray. so you can see what i was making at her blog
