Mama Deb

Almost finished. (Done now)

The aluminum foil is off the counters and the stove. Most of the pesach stuff is put away - really,all except for the tray holding the still-burning yarzheit candle. I'm reluctant to douse it, since it was for my father. And the seder plate needs to put away.

The chometz utensils are where they belong. I haven't put away most of my chometz canned goods and such, but we're exhausted, and, honestly? I won't need any of it until next week. We can put them away after Shabbat.

Tomorrow's dinner? Curried chicken with rice and green beans. Rice! Green beans! Curry! It'll be kitniyot heaven.

I have the chicken. It's thawing. Tomorrow morning, I'll get the rice and the green beans. The curry is already back in the closet.

Of course, it'll be Shabbat again, but we'll deal.

Edited: Seder plate and tray are away. Table is back to normal. Kitchen is pretty much back to normal. Life is back to normal.

It all looks so normal

I went shopping this morning, to avoid the inevitable crowds of people trying to restock after Pesach. I only bought what I would need for Shabbat, figuring I could get other things later.

I still don't crave chometz. I do crave kitniyot, but I now have rice and whole wheat bread and pita bread, and diet soda. I also have Israeli salad and macaroni salad and it's just. Normal. Normal is good.

My table has its year-round stuff on it - the "silver" tray, the challah board, the arty candlesticks, the challah cover, the year round place mats. The bare wood shining through.
