(Just above the cakes you can see cornbread baked in my new favorite baking toy, a pan that lets everyone in the family get that coveted edge piece.)

My ears are red: There are a number of blogs that have mentioned Juggling Frogs during my stomach-juggling absence. I'm still digging through a backlog, but hope to respond soon:
- Jameel at the Muquata
- Sephardi Lady/Orthonomics
- Batya's KCC25
- Fire in my Kitchen
- Miriam in Israel
- Aidel Maidel
- YidwithLid (HH)
- The blogger currently known as "Lion of Zion"
Also, Rav Soloveitchik's Two Dreams at Hirhurim relates the point that just as the angels going up and down on the ladder in Jacob's dream were not two separate dreams, but components of one dream, so too, Rav Soloveitchik's mastery of both secular and Torah scholarship are but separate aspects of a single vision.
This post made me smile, imagining an updated version of Jacob's dream. Instead of a ladder, the angles were going up and down a conveyor belt, all attached to the same device, part of the same mechanism, but resulting in individual angels oriented in opposite directions.
Thank you again and again for all of your kind wishes and thoughtful comments. It's good to be back. I missed you, too!
