Who knew that Jane Fonda and I had so much in common? As a child of the 70’s and 80’s, I definitely spent my share of time admiring Fonda’s exercise videos and jumping along to her legwarmer-big hair beat. But now I’m admiring her for something else – sustainability. I’ve actually always admired when Princess… Read More If It’s Good Enough for Jane Fonda….
I’ve started learning Daf Yomi. Yep, little me is trying to go through the 7.5 years of daily learning that will serve as a completion of the entire Gemara (Talmud). The entire cycle finished recently and created a lot of excitement – both in the male community that traditionally does Daf Yomi and in the… Read More Adding Some Daf Into My Life
Recently, I was wearing this cute top that makes me feel like royalty. Why? Well, not because I’m moving to Canada, or disowning my family or anything. More because I can’t do a darn thing in it. I can’t work in it, or cook in it, or even really eat. It’s cute and elegant, but… Read More Yes, Just Call Me Royalty Why Don’t You
I like to stay in my box. It’s comfortable. And warm (well, lately it’s been very, very cold where I live, but you know what I mean) and safe. So when Josh and I tossed around the idea of going to Eliat for the weekend, I was inclined to say no. Of course I wanted… Read More Thanks You Boys!
A few months ago, Josh read an article about “The most popular dress on Amazon.” The title caught his eye because it was super weird – Why was a dress going viral? And what did the dress look like? So of course, he had to take a look – and it was actually quite a… Read More My Boys, the Fashionistas
Last week on my blog, I listed all of my reads for 2019. My dad looked over the list and said, “But what were your top 5 favorite?” Oh dad, don’t you know that I have absolutely no memory, and that as soon as I finish a book, it’s gone? But, alas, always up to… Read More My 5 Best Reads of 2019
As 2019 ends, and we head into 2020, I want to wish everyone a healthy, happy and meaningful year ahead. As I find reading incredibly meaningful, I always love to share my end-of-the-year list of books. According to Goodreads, I read 117 books this year, many of which I loved. I hope you will enjoy… Read More My Reading Review for 2019
This week, I brought a cake to my office to celebrate my ten-year work anniversary. Those of us who have been here from the beginning (or close to it) enjoyed reminiscing and discussing how quickly the time has gone. Others, however, remarked that they were amazed to think about being in the same job for… Read More A Work-aversary to Celebrate
This article first appeared in The Jerusalem Post and then in the International edition of The Jerusalem Post. Last year, my husband suggested that we start the Israel Trail as a family. His plan was to take a few days each year over Pesach and to walk together. We’ve reached the sweet spot as a… Read More The Trail Of Our Lives
The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is such a beautiful look at a little-known piece of history. Perhaps you know about this, but I had never heard about the Kentucky Fugates or The Pack Horse Library Project. And they are both important pieces of American history. The Fugates were blue-skinned people who had an extremely… Read More A Blue Woman Delivering Books?
