Last night we had a Friday night service and Hanukkah event at one of our friends' homes. My beloved baked a couple of dishes for it, including rugala and challah. Yummy! It was a very pleasant evening.
I just let Sven the cat in the sliding glass door. Apparently he couldn't resist going walkabout in the rain, and so he tracked in water on arrival. Presently after extensive ablutions and a visit to the cat food site upstairs, he's curled up in a basket...and his head has poked up, periscope-like, glaring at me for daring to comment on him. Ha! Try and stop me!
