Time for the Holidays!

No photography today. I’m too busy. Wow, never thought I’d say that about photography, but this evening Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, begins at sundown. I am busy cleaning, cooking and preparing for this and the other holidays to follow. We will feast on apples and honey and honey cakes for the next three weeks as we wish each other a sweet and prosperous new year. I will go missing for a few days each week as we celebrate and observe the holy days, and I will get behind in visiting your blogs. It can’t be helped. I will be back in a few days and I’m sure there will be lots to tell. Until then, L’Shana Tovah!

Five Question Friday: September 9, 2011

It’s that time of the week again.  Since last week I’ve unpacked most of our boxes, a task that has proven to go faster as a result of moving into a tiny apartment.  The rest of our stuff was given away, thrown away or stored until we decide what to do with it.  To be honest, I think I’m going to like the “downsized” us a LOT!  Also, this is the penultimate week of the quarter; I just completed my last discussion post and now all that is left to do is complete the final project.  If all goes according to plan (yes it will, don’t be negative) I will submit that by the middle of the coming week and then I will be done for the quarter!  Woohoo!! I will have three weeks before I start up again. Of course in that three weeks we also have Rosh Hoshana, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot….actually the next quarter will begin before the last days of the last holidays.  Busy but happy times!

Now on to the five questions.  Here they are. Feel free to answer if you so desire, then share your answers with the rest of us.

1. What ringtone do you have on your cell phone?

Nothing special.  Just a ring tone.  I don’t fool with the songs and cutesy stuff.  My phone rings and that is all I need for it to do. 🙂

2. What is your favorite memory from this summer?

Our wonderful vacation in July!  It was glorious glorious glorious. Those of you who followed my daily blog at that time can attest to just how awesome and glorious that vacation was.

3. Paper books or ebooks?

Both.  Paper at home, ebooks on the subway or elsewhere when a hardback or paperbacks are too cumbersome to carry.  I downloaded Kindle onto my ipod and so I drop my library into my purse when I go someplace.  I always have a book to read no matter where I am.

4. If you could have one home upgrade what would it be and why?

We rent now so that is not a consideration.  When we buy however, I will want a fully loaded kosher kitchen and tiled bathrooms. 🙂 Why not? I plan to be in our own home before this time next year.  Make note of that. 🙂

5. When was your first serious boyfriend/girlfriend?

Oh my goodness…. That was too long ago.  I didn’t date that much, and really wasn’t serious about anyone until I met the man I would marry.  That proved to be a bit of a problem, but at the time it seemed like a good idea.  25 years later we divorced.  At least I can say I tried.  Now however, I am married to the love of my life.  Our tenth anniversary is coming up this fall. 😉

Ok, your turn.  And next week I will break a bit from the norm and substitute questions of my own. . .unless the 5QF folks come up with some really awesome questions!
