A Typical Havdallah @ Chevra Ahavas Yisroel
This town puts up posters. I've been taking them down, using them for surfaces to paint on. Its past their day. I wonder, who does clean up around here, with bottles littering the place. The streets are pretty dirty. I notice more and more the trash on the curb waiting to be picked up. Tomorrow, Saturday. Figuring out the schedule. Wish there were more bottle and can recycling bins. Not sure if it would make a difference.
A modesty campaign is going around town. I picked up a postcard that says Love and Respect. Please Dress Modestly. Sure we can do that.
Today I was walking on Empire past a clothing donation box next to Empire Kosher. I was just thinking how I wanted to go to a gmach (a place where I can get modest clothes). There were several trash bags, and a woman sorting through them. I put down the sunflower and basil in the water bottle, and joined her sorting through. I was able to SCORE BIG-the title of the Breslov pamplet I am carrying around. I got 2 long fitted skirts-one denim, a few long sleeve shirts of fun colors like orange and pretty in pink, and a teal vest. It was if everything was made exactly for me. Elul is approaching and its time to let go of any 'shlunky' clothes;anything that does not reflect me being the bat melech that I am.

I think the wait staff is getting to know Goldie at Basil, its twice in one week I've sat at the table at the front Basil is the hip Italian restaurant in Crown Heights.. I ordered the bread pudding.kinda chewy I say the flourless chocolate cake is better. Of course, its the company that makes it all worthwhile. Another late Saturday night.....
