Beach day! On a Wednesday!

She Wears Hats
Woo hoo!  Morning sessions were canceled*, and I came to work with sand between my toes!
Most gorgeous breeze off the water.

LittleRed got sand EVERYWHERE from the chin down.
MiddleRed somehow got sand on his knees, the turned up hem of his pants, and nowhere else. His white shirt remained pristine white.
BigRed and I hadn't planned to go in the sand with the kids, but what can you do?  It was there ;)

*Gotta love the holidays

Walking

She Wears Hats
So I mosied over to google maps, and apparently the Neptune to J campus-to-campus walk that I never did before is 3.7 miles.
Ouch?  We'll see how that works out!


K Highway to J
One campus-to-campus is 1.2 miles, but campus to home is 2.3 mile.

K Highway to Stillwell
Main campus to campus is 1.9 miles. Google maps suggests a 37 min walk, which is about what it takes.

There is lots and lots of food prepared for the holiday.  Some is cooked, some is raw and waiting for the 'last minute' to be baked so it can stay sort of fresh even though we're not using the oven over the actual holiday.

We can use the last morning before the holiday starts to put up most of hte decorations.

Open the fridge.
What's that terrible smell?
All the raw chicken and fish has spoiled.  Some of the cooked stuff has spoiled, as well.  Local kosher grocery is closed for the holiday already. Hasty trip to local ShopRite shows that everyone has already bought most of the kosher fish and chicken.
The guests will be here in five hours.
*headdesk*
Cooking, cooking baking, baking, stapling & push-pinning things to the wall...
And there's enough food to eat in a nicely decorated sukkah, even if some side dishes never got made and the box of decorations is embarrassingly full.

Walking a lot, but we have leftover cake adn rum balls in the house.
Weight gain vs weight loss...

Sukkos

She Wears Hats

Large Red and Favorite daughter are building the Sukkah this year with minimal help from BigRed, who is busy falling down laughing at our kids.

If the boards fit together last year, AND all the boards are labeled 1-18, AND all the beams are labeled A-G, AND the penciled in diagram is still taped to board 1, the WHY don't all the screw-holes line up properly???

Favorite Daughter helped BigRed build my dad's Sukah while LargeRed and the little boys were in school. Taped prominently to one board was 'Thank you /BigRed/ and /myNephew/ for building this Sukkah. The Manegement.'

Hehehe, my dad said he's going to put up a new sign for BigRed and FavoriteDaughter this year, because it's only fair.

Didn't know my daughter could turn that red - just like her daddy's hair!

Honey

She Wears Hats
Favorite Daughter baked honey cake for New Years.
Dense, delicious.
Is that honey cake or honey bread?
Whatever, I ate four slices.
Ooops. :)

Family. Coming and Going.

She Wears Hats
Large Red came back from Israel a few weeks ago.
Eldest Son is now going for the High Holy Days.
Happy New Year, and here's hoping for no more bombs.
