I had a long day today and finally made it home close to 11 PM. I had to empty out the little glass bottles in the Chanukiya and fill them with fresh oil and the wick. Then I said the blessings, lit the candles and sang.
It was worth it. Such beautiful lights. I shoot these without the flash, but using “automatic” setting. My old trusty Cannon 620 is a nice old wise camera. I can always trust it to adjust itself to the image and lightning.
I had a long day. I went on an “adventure” with a neighbor. We checked out the new shopping center in nearby Eli. I photographed it and plan on blogging about it in the future. Then I went to work and before signing in went to speak to the guy/agent who does the Golan cellphones. He wasn’t in but he’ll be in tomorrow. I can’t wait to finish with Pelephone which has taken outrageous and immoral amounts of money from us. I plan on blogging about that too once we sign with a new company. Then I went to work, which was hectic but ok. Afterwards I walked over to the new “simcha hall” to say mazaltov to neighbors whose son got married. I couldn’t stay, because I’m in my year of mourning for my mother. After that I caught the bus home and then walked up the hill.
