This was a day of catching up, of retrieving a lost necklace (a loved gift from Zalman) from the hardware store where it had dropped, of belatedly deconstructing the shabbos dining room table, of a welcome tea-visit from a friend bearing flowers and a book for belated birthday celebration. Mishka the cat, snuggled by the laptop in the morning then later on my lap in the other room. A long phone visit with a friend from Denver, punctuated by the quirkiest meows from her cat. Calls with family.
Missing my beloved.
