Dear Readers

[image: a steaming cup of tea]
Dear Readers,
Please sit down and join me for a cyber-cup of tea.
Purim is coming, and Passover on its heels a month later. For those who don’t understand the implications of this, it means that these upcoming two months will undoubtedly be hectic ones for me. Orthodox Jewish housewives (like me) clean every corner of their houses before Passover, with a tendency to over-do than under-do.
And I have several outstanding things from before this that need to get done.
And if I want to loose weight I need to get enough sleep, and at least sometimes get out for aerobic walking.
I am sure you can see where this is heading: I have to cut down on the blog, at least for the next two months.
And actually, I am not sure that this is a bad thing. Having written 845 posts since November 14, 2007 (812 days), I have said a lot. And I have reached the point that I am finding it harder to say things worth reading. I feel that the quality of my writing has deteriorated, and I am straining to post daily. In addition, Ricki’s regular, everyday behavior is not all that interesting. [Yeah, reading how she got dressed, made an egg, etc, is interesting day after day….] But if I only write about her bad behavior, that will give everyone a VERY lop-sided view, which is hardly the purpose of this blog.
So, in short, I plan to stop posting daily, but do hope to improve the quality over what I have been dishing out as of late. For those who follow me by clicking on my address, I humbly suggest to pop in 2-3 times a week. Those who follow me through blogger will have it easier. Please bear with me, and I hope to still keep you as readers.
Have a nice weekend!

yes, blogging shouldn't be a "job"

Enjoy life and visit sometimes.

you know, this works for me!! I have been so busy, it's hard to keep up. I don't like to skip anything you write, so I can spend an hour or two just "catching up!"

You are on my blogroll, so I see when you post something new.

You can be certain that this loyal follower will not give up on you that quick. I love reading what you write!!
