Best of the Weekend and Spring Break





Hello, and welcome to Best of the Weekend!
I think we are the last of the schools on spring break this week.
Having break at the end of April seemed like a sure bet, weather-wise,
but the week has been and chilly and gray.
We have logged almost 1000 miles doing the college tour circuit,

and instead of seeing kids out on the quads throwing frisbees,
they were bundled up in jackets and scarves! 

Thankfully, it's warm and spring-like here at Best of the Weekend!
Let's start the party engines!

A Few Of My Favorite Things




A Few Of My Favorite Things | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

When you're feeling a little blue,
what helps to cheer you up?


Perhaps, you lose yourself in a book,
or call a good friend.
Possibly, you work off your anxieties at the gym, 
or laugh yourself silly watching a funny movie.
It could be that you pour yourself a stiff drink,
eat an entire box of Mallomars, 
and head to the mall to buy ten pairs of shoes.
(Although, I really can't imagine who would do that).


Or maybe, on those days 
when the dog bites,
when the bee stings,
when you're feeling sad,
you simply remember your favorite things...
(sing it with me, now)...
and then you don't feel...so...bad!

Now that I've gone all Julie Andrews on you, 
here are a few of my favorite things.


Traveling the world, reading a best-seller
Days at the beach, and a jar of Nutella
Jelly beans, football, watching birds spread their wings 
These are a few of my favorite things...

Magazines, family, friends, ripe avocados
Baking, and sunsets, Trader Joe's aficionado  
My deck, and my dog, and some animal-print bling
These are a few of my favorite things...

A good cup of coffee, a pair of new shoes
Fall colors, and lighthouses, fireworks, too
Cheese, and Greek pastries; the first signs of spring
These are a few of my favorite things...

  When I gain weight
When the bills come,
When I'm feeling sad...
I simply remember my favorite things, 
And then I don't feel so bad! 


What are some of your favorite things?

Best of the Weekend and Happy Passover!





Greetings, and welcome to Best of the Weekend!
As you are reading this, I am sitting at our seder table,
celebrating the first night of Passover!
For those of you who are wondering what a seder is (pronounced SAY-der),
it is a ceremonial meal with prayers, rituals and song
that reminds us of when the Jews were freed from slavery in Egypt thousands of years ago.
Although my family does not perform the entire seder,
we always look forward to this night that is different from all others, 
where we eat certain foods that remind us of our freedom.
Undoubtedly by this time, I have already stuffed myself 

with too much matzoh ball soup and kugel,
and of course, had the obligatory four cups of wine
(and they call this suffering?).
We get to do it all over again tomorrow for the second night of Passover.

To those of you who celebrate, I wish you a "zissen Pesach" --
a sweet Passover!

And now, on to Best of the Weekend!
