The Year of No Sukkah

First {“not” gloating} I’m just surprised it didn’t happen sooner.  It was just a matter of time.  Inactions have consequences.  You know what I’m saying.  Perhaps there’s some poetic justice in the world.  ’nuff said!

And now to more current events.  Happy erev Sukkot, the feast of harvest, to those of us who celebrate–“celebrate” being a relative term right now.  Somehow I just didn’t have the heart to set up a sukkah this year, the first time in a while.  What’s the point?  Even my son can’t visit (except in my dreams each night).  Also, I couldn’t go shopping for appropriate harvesty decorations during the pandemic.  So there you have it.  🙁

Still, I try to create a festive-ish meal and surroundings with what I have to work with.  I wasn’t able to grow or buy pumpkins, squash, gourds, or etc. this year, but there’s always next year.  Or is there?  Time will tell!

This meal includes challah and homemade noodles by E, and a sweet potato/carrot/ fruit tzimmes by Y.T.  Lots of fresh homegrown herbs were involved.  Happily there is no lack of flowers this year.  And we’re still alive, so that’s something.
