I met Barbara for a two hour lunch today to discuss Torah study and lots of other things (including Jewish views on abortion!).
At one point, we were finding in the Torah where to start studying from, and a man approached us and asked if that was a Torah and we started chatting. He asked us what we were doing. We said we were studying the Torah together. He asked us what prompted this and Barbara said, "We're Jewish."
It turns out he is Jewish as well (I figured) and here for graduation (ding ding) and the VP of his temple in Illinois. We had a lovely chat. That was very fun.
My menorahs came from Israel today! I don't know where I will find candles teeny enough for them (Dereck said, "Birthday candles.")
I have been cleaning all afternoon for Shabbat (Believe me the house needed it!). I have some vacuuming to do, and the challah to finish, and then baseball to head to. Where did the day go?
I am staying home tomorrow morning and taking some time for study and me. I just want to sit quietly in my house. Of course, there is also baseball at 9 a.m.
