On Thursday we celebrated the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread with another Shabbat, in which we attempted to enjoy the great outdoors by doing a puzzle.
Foil was to keep the pieces from falling through.
I came up with a little system for one of my favorite pastimes some years ago. I keep a lot of old puzzles and you are bound to lose pieces. So whenever I complete a puzzle, I make a mark on the cover where any missing pieces are. I'll either put an X or write "missing" right on the place where the piece is gone from.
It keeps me from endlessly looking for a piece, only to discover that it was missing all along.
It ended up being too windy, so we brought it inside and instead I washed and cut Michael's hair outside. I love to wash my hair outside with the hose. The songbirds and scenery are way better than a closed off bathroom, and cold water is better for your hair anyway. So Michael got to lay on the deck while I did his hair. He's still growing out the shaved head from December, for his friend who has cancer.
Later that night we met friends and enjoyed an evening out at a local restaurant where more of our cozy group were playing 3 sets of live music. It was really fun to go, and fun that the eatery was packed with all our church family and friends.
Nice, simple day.
