What I would Blog about if I had time to Blog

Passover has been, well, a bit of a distraction for me. And blogging seems to have fallen to low priority, after cooking, sleeping, working, entertaining my daughter, washing dishes, baking potato kugel with my eldest son, brownies with my middle son, a nut jam cake with my daughter after she found out I already made a sponge cake without her.

So here is a list of what I might blog about in the future, maybe:

  • Differences (and similarities) between Drupal and WordPress
  • My Questions about Drupal
  • How will Drupal 7 be different than Drupal 6
  • A new Nature Notes (a meme by Rambling Woods)
  • Barnum and Bailey Circus (may be in an upcoming Ruby Tuesday post)
  • Stuffed Squash for Passover
  • Slavery to Freedom Salad, updated with cooked radishes
  • Klara’s Radish with Umeboshi Paste Pickles (delicious! yum)
  • Replacing Grass with Chamomile
  • My Dill Germinated
  • Twitter for Insurance
  • Twitter for Bloggers
  • Twitter for Understanding Autism
  • How Mrs. S. posts about Reasons to Make Aliyah (moving to Israel) but Baila’s post about the Midras Ruins would certainly be a convincing factor. Mom in Israel’s visit to Poleg Nature Reserve also would be an incentive.
  • Synagogues in Far Rockaway (and how the young women in the White Shul wear black and I’m glad I live in Highland Park)
  • Any new drawing by my daugher for a new What Do You See post
  • My upcoming library talks with Eva Abreu at Highland Park Public Library, Edison Public Library and Franklin Township Public Library. See Eva’s Tour Schedule for more details and other featured speakers.

If I am organized enough, maybe I will post about Spring in New York City before 7 pm this evening. In case I don’t make it to that post, enjoy the rest of Pesach if you are celebrating. Everyone, take a few minutes to note any signs of spring in your neighborhood. If you are living in Australia and you happen to read this post, feel free to share signs of autumn.

I ought to do a list like that . . . as I so often forget to blog about my own good ideas!
I hope some of these come to fruition by you :-)

Leora says

I did this once before, when I came back from Israel and felt totally overwhelmed by the experience and by getting back into "my" reality. It was a pleasure to get many of those posts up over the next month or so.

Melissa says


Thank you so much for your kind comments.

They are appreciated more than you can ever know.


Leora says

Take care, Melissa. I hope we can continue to share in our blogs. In good times, too.

mother in israel says

I'm so jealous of your colored comments--I must go find your post explaining how to do it.
Hope you can give priority to recipes for KCC next week!

Leora says

Maybe I should post again about the colored comments. But it's 11 pm, so it's not happening until the kids are back in school (Monday) at least.

Leora says

Here's the post on how to color your background for comments:

I could embellish the post with ideas about color and images in CSS. But that's not happening this week...

Klara Le Vine says

I was also going to make a stuffed squash for the last day of Pesach and when I opened the squash it was totally worthless - and I had bought it organic, also!!!!

so maybe next year I'll be ahead of the game and have some in my garden?? That's the dream.

Leora says

Mine was good, but the squash wasn't as tasty as the stuffing. I think next time I will scoop the squash to make a bigger hole for more stuffing and mix the scooped squash with the stuffing.

I hope to do a post on this soon, because KCC is coming up.

ramblingwoods says

Another great idea Leora...

Baila says

You're doing great--my blogging's been at an all time low. It's just been so crazy around here.

Mrs. S. says

Thanks for the link.

I agree. Chol hamo'ed tiyulim are a GREAT reason to make aliyah! :-)
