Happy 1st October! It’s officially spooky season!
Since it’s officially Spooky Season, Philadelphia is holding socially distant Halloween parties. On Sunday before Yom Kippur, Moishe House sent around an e-mail about Shabbat events in October. They all had RSVP’s on Facebook. I haven’t had Facebook for a few years, so I e-mailed them.
I heard nothing, so I attempted to bring back Wesley’s profile, nothing. It was deleted and I could only get it back if friends verified. My friends couldn’t. I tried creating my own profile just to RSVP to Moishe House events, and I got a message saying Facebook couldn’t verify my identity. I didn’t want to rejoin anyway, so I let it go and I e-mailed my friend instead. He helps with the events and unfortunately, the Halloween party sold out on the 16th, but I am scheduled to go to the Sukkot (end) dinner on the 9th. I am grateful Jonathon reached out to me and set me up for one of the events. Even though I am disappointed about the Halloween party, at least I am going to one and that’s better than nothing.
I am going to two other Halloween parties in Philadelphia at the end of the month instead. I ordered my Halloween costume last night, I’m going to be Harley Quinn. Mom recommended HalloweenCostumes.com and I found the costume there. I’m thankful mom suggested that website.
I’m thankful for Ms. Ernestine, she made me this lovely gift – she had it at her desk since last week, since her office day is on Friday and mine is on Thursday, so today I picked it up. She knows I love the Peyton Heart Project and I’m just very verklempt.
I forgot to post the photo of the gift from the Jewish Federation, so here it is. I’m still very thankful.
I’m also thankful for the changing leaves and it’s getting cooler too. I love this time of year.
I’m also thankful for friends and family. What are you thankful for?
