Maple Pecan Rolls

WOW! Mom, is there a particular reason you picked such a patchkie recipe as your break-fast special? I want to thank you for all fasts you spent making these. I looked at the recipe, and thought - you've got to be kidding! This is nutso. So, I went to the bakery to find something yummy to break-fast on. Well, not surprisingly, nothing in the bakery looked nearly as good as the maple pecan rolls I have in my head... so I bought walnuts (yes, walnuts go in maple pecan rolls - not pecans...) and maple syrup, heading back up the hill to my house and set out to bake them.

Now they're rising.

Hmmm, I hope they come out good.

Tisha B'Av

May you all have an easy and meaningful fast. Personally, I'm watching a documentary on the Churban on TV. And yesterday I took Daniel to Yad Vashem. So I have what to think about.

Does any of you sleep without a pillow or on the floor on Tisha B'Av? Just curious.

we had a great time, and would like to thank all those people that made it a smashing success. starting with daniel for being born 13 years ago to veev for finding us a olace to sleep several times arye for the walk, sim for the ride to ramallah golda for putting us up and for putting up with us for a week, (sim for that too) sarr and shlomo for lunches and good directions, shu and nat for days and days together and great times , dav and shani for playing with us and hope the test went well. and last but not least batch for being batch, and for straightening the girls' hair. and mom and dad for the good times of it all. we had a very loong flight followed by a very long break followed by a lot of crying while getting on the next plane, some children actually wanted to stay in the airport when threatened with this. but by the time the plane started rolling ( for 30 minutes before taking off) all the kids and devo were sleeping. i was busy waiting for my free drink. all in all it was good times. thanks
maybe again sometime

Today's Plan...

Ok.. what's today's plan? Who has directions, or is everyone just following? Can we buy there, or should we bring sandwiches? wait... where is everyone?

Missing you

In 2015, according to Sim's calculations we need a simcha in the family. So someone might need to have a baby that year or something. We are giving advanced warning.
