Now, please don’t think I’m losing my marbles. It is indeed a timely greeting to all the people in the world practicing the Jewish religion, celebrating the New Year. That is to mention, I’m celebrating it too, because of my husband.
Yeah, Frank is Jewish, an American Jew. He is not an Orthodox Jew, though. If I may use another term to describe him, as far as his practice of his religion is concerned, he is a “rebel jew” or a “modern jew”. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have married me or even attempted to get to know me. Most of them marry someone within their religion. No, I didn’t convert and never will. I’m still the same plain Catholic girl as I used to be, a gentile as most Jews would say.
Going back to Rosh Hashanah(Jewish New Year), the celebration starts tonight at sunset till September 14 also at sunset. In the jewish religion, Rosh Hashanah celebrates the creation of the world, also the beginning of the 10 days of awe prior to Yum Kippur(on the 21 st.—this deserves another post, altogether).
This being said, today also commenced my husband’s two and a half weeks of hiatus from work. We’re off to Aruba next week and believe it or not, it’s only today when I really start to feel the excitement of our incoming trip. I love to travel, alright, but I don’t like the preparation that goes with it. Since Aruba is in the Caribbean, with the new law regarding use of US passport, this would mean, I need to go to the safe deposit box at our bank to retrieve our passports *sigh*, and the Post Office too, to temporarily stop delivery of our regular mail.
Oh my, I better start to jot down my list of errands that I need to do. The list to bring and or pack, I really am okay with that because, I have that in place already. Nothing has changed through the years. Whatever we’re used to bringing ever since we became a couple, it’s still pretty much the same thing. Wish it’ll change… how about a whole luggage filled with baby necessities?(wink). Oh how I wish…
This is it for today… in My World.
