Apparently, that is what one says here on the Sabbath. It is quite interesting -- Friday at sunset everything shutsdown and the town gets really quiet--then as the sun goes down Saturday and the street lights go on, everyone suddenly spills out into the streets and it all gets going again !
We were lucky enough to have a nice, quiet day at home today ! We hung around here in the morning, started getting the laundry done (right in the basement) and generally recouped !
Sean and I finally got to have some falafel from the place down the street tonight, and it was yummy yummy. They put it in a pita with salad, pickles, tahini, and french fries (yes, the french fries go in the pita too). Yum. I think we'll be going there a lot -- we are getting used to being a public spectacle and but maybe after the next few times we are around town no one will notice us anymore (maybe not !)
Today was a good day for the tired / cranky meter : Mimi and I got big naps and so are way back down to 1 ; Sean is still a bit frayed around the edges at a 4 ; Ro is starting to show a little fatigue but still hanging tough.
We hope everyone is happy and well, safe from the snow in the NE ! Shabbat Shalom again xoxoxo KSRM
