How old were you when you cooked a full supper for the first time? Meat or dairy?


Wow! that's amazing. probably involved a lot of hard work.

In Shana Rishona. Pareve - fish.
As a girl, only my mother did the cooking.

I feel like I was much younger than I am now. My father, zt"l, was still alive then. Most of my kids were still living at home. And I generally had lots more energy and optimism.

How old were you when you got your first steady job?

So you are in the year of aveilus? That's so very difficult. So many jumbled emotions. And they don't all suddenly disappear when the first year ends, but it does get easier with time. My dear father z'l was niftar when I was 20. The end of my teen years. It was sudden. I know how it feels losing a parent.
"Tof Umachol," dearest, I reach out to you with my heart and soul filled with compassion. I'm holding your hand.

After I got married.

How old were you when you first succeeded in inserting pillows and quilts into their covers?

Simcha4, thank you so much for your warm words and your empathy. I am really touched. I feel so supported by you even though we've never actually met!

Pillows - I was about 12. Quilts I am still not too good at ...

How old were you when you heard your mother's words coming from your mouth? (And if you don't mind sharing, what are the phrases you've adopted?)

Appr. 1 yr. + when I started speaking proper words and short sentences, English was my first language, very soon after I was also saying words in Yiddish.
I spoke to my mother in English and lhbd"l my father z'l in Yiddish.
After my marriage I had to learn to speak Ivrit.

How old were you when you first tasted a food that was new to you, that you'd never eaten until then? Which food?

What are halves?

A couple of years after I got married, I couldn't find a beautiful pendant that a cousin of mine who is a jeweler had made for me for my engagement. I was upset, it was a beautiful necklace, the pendant was a piece of the plate that my mother and m-i-l broke at our tenoyim. Never found it.

How old were you when u wrote your first Thank You letter to someone?

23. I had a really strong fear of dogs, linked to strong negative associations. I spent a few years exposing myself slowly. I felt I fully overcame my fear when I lived with and took care of a puppy for 10 days. Now, I love dogs and am so glad I worked on myself to overcome the negative associations.
