My Jewish Cactus and Other Matters
Well, yesterday the chef at school told me he'd laid in a mighty supply of matzo and was talking with a couple of the Jewish faculty members about possible interesting lunches for Passover. And I came and found You Know Who in full bloom! It's become a Passover Cactus! Mazel Tov! Don't worry that the adjacent rabbit is an Easter bunny that is going to offend; the rabbit lives on the sill year-round -- he's a treasure from the home of a dear friend long gone.
Off we went then to the Flourtown Farmer's Market for lunch and shopping for some dinner things for the week ahead and then the Asian produce market for a nice fresh pineapple and some gorgeous asparagus.
And then, the piece de resistance: a brown paper parcel from England had arrived! A blog friend had made a quilt using Liberty fabrics and kindly agreed to trade me her scraps in exchange for some neutrals.
Does it get any better than this?
