365 Project: Day 107 + fabric, shoes & a sukkah

October 12, 2011
In: Everything Else

I started my day early, around 6:45 or so, but it stayed pretty dark throughout the morning. It’s actually pretty dark right now (~13:30). Well, I guess the seasons are actually changing. I dislike this time of year, because you never know what you’re going to get tomorrow, and some days you don’t know what you’re going to get later in the day. You might leave the house in the morning wearing short sleeves, and come back in the evening to pouring rain. I wish the weather could decide: summer or winter.

First thing in the morning, I went to the post office to get my latest delivery of fabrics, for dirt-cheap prices (from Good Sewing and Crafts). Yey! I can’t wait to start on some projects I’m planning, but I’ve been crazy busy with work, and haven’t had any time to do anything…

Since we’re heading out to my parent’s house in the hills for the holiday, we had to make sure that the kids had something warm to wear. We made that mistake once when Noam was a year old – it was still warm here, but where my parents live it was quite cold. We ended up putting grown up socks on his barely one year old feet, which didn’t seem to make him very comfortable. I bought warm clothes for Noam on Monday, but I didn’t realize I didn’t have anything for Hodaya. I rushed over to the mall to get her some clothes, but the store was still closed and I had to wait for it to open (so I got some shoes while I waited).

Being at the mall before it’s really open is a strange experience. People are wandering around without purpose, or leaning on the store doors and talking on their cell phone waiting for the stores to open. The mall employees are washing the floor and wearily telling the customers to come back in a few minutes.

I got home, and helped Noam with a few more decorations for the sukkah. I hope they don’t get rained on too much…

I’m sure I’ll get some better pictures of the sukkah, probably with some people in it, during the next few days…

[update: My father has a nasty cold, and we’ve been sick every Sukkot since Noam was born, so we decided to stay home and visit next week some time when everyone’s healthy. This way, if anyone gets sick, at least we won’t feel guilty…]
