Shabbat shalom, ya'll! I'll be off the interwebs until Saturday evening. But there are plenty of posts sitting in my editor, just waiting to be posted.
Proud moment of the day: Saw very obviously observant Jews at the grocery store who were also very obviously lost. I got to explain the weirdness of our 5 different locations for different types of kosher products! (For the curious: bakery, dry goods, meat, refrigerated items, and frozen stuff.) I was all helpful and welcoming and stuff! It was awesome.
"Chavi's dumb" moment: They asked if all the cheese was cholov yisroel. No idea. I'm not that good yet. I'm just glad to have the privilege to pay twice as much for my hechsher-ed shredded cheddar for my Shabbos enchiladas (between $4.50-5.50 for the regular 8oz packet).
How do I know I'm crazy? I realized immediately after the awkward conversation had ended that I should have said something like, "I'm sorry, I'm still learning!" And I thought REALLY hard about finding them in the store to tell them that. I didn't. I'm not sure if that's a victory or simply embarrassment. I suppose we'll never know.
What are my Shabbat plans? I'm making enchiladas for dinner :) However, the combination of rain, chilliness (yes, I'm a baby and will die on the non-Southern East Coast), and a week of insomnia means that I'm going to crawl into my hobbit hole for Shabbat. I will be sleeping and reading all Shabbat. The joys of being a woman: it's ok if I don't wake up in time and have to daven at home :D
So until Shabbat arrives in an hour and a half, there is a bathroom just begging to be cleaned!
