Visit with Stacy

I had a wonderful brunch at Lily’s Creperie with Stacy on Saturday the 27th. Neither of us had eaten crepes there, although I’d seen it on one of our frequent visits to the nearby Rainbow Pizza. I’d had sorbet from there once, and it was good. Anyway, the food turned out to be tasty, and Stacy and I had a really nice visit. Stacy is one of those people that I can not see for a while, and when we get together we just talk and talk and really click. I remember the first time we sat and talked, right after we met when I hired her to help me with two Passover Seders in 2001. I needed assistance because I’d just had knee surgery, not to mention I had two young children amd did two Seders in two days. (What was I thinking?) After the first Seder she and I sat on my deck and talked for hours. It’s great to have friends like that.

Visit with George and Linda

George and Linda visited us on Friday. Val and I cooked a relatively simple dinner, before which we lit Shabbat candles and ate challah I’d purchased earlier at the day when I went to the gym at the PJCC. After dinner we ate the dessert they brought and watched one of George’s favorite movies, Sans Soleil. The kids were with Glynis & Susan so we had some adult time.

Sholom Women Member Appreciation Dinner

I attended the Member Appreciation Dinner for Sholom Women on Thursday the 25th. Originally there was a guest speaker planned but she had to cancel at the last minute because her father took ill. So we just spent two hours socializing and it was delightful. I met two other women named Marilyn! The funniest part was that a big part of the conversation centered around baseball (I had the real-time app on my phone, giving others updates on the World Series game) and football (most of us are 49ers fans); breaking stereotypes, eh? Oh, and we talked about our jobs and our kids too.
