This is the outline of what I said in my Live Broadcast on Instagram last night, after someone asked me to do a video on Pesach prep. First, there are tons of amazing resources online that are definitely more comprehensive than me, so check those out. Between Carpools has a downloadable guide, Ruchi Koval’s How… Continue reading Preparing For Pesach In The Time Of Corona
Hello all my fellow socially distanced or not-yet socially distanced friends. We are entering week two of this new normal, and the learning experiences keep on coming. One of my wise friends shared with me that’s she’s been viewing this whole thing as a mussar test from the get-go. I love that. This does feel… Continue reading Coronavirus Break Creativity
It’s less than a month before Pesach and instead of preparing for this exciting and labor-intensive holiday, I am preparing for some exciting and labor-intensive home-schooling. That’s right, school is out for at least the next five weeks, and my five kids are all home with me, and instead of buying matzah, I’m stocking up… Continue reading Silver Linings of COVID-19 Break
It’s Adar, and here at the Silver household, we have already increased our joy by decorating the house with all the past Purim projects that I keep in a box (I put that process up on my stories last week. It’s my favorite part of instagram, I don’t care what the Mishpacha inbox writers say).… Continue reading Oh Purim, Oh Purim, Hooray
I love learning, and I love external motivation to learn (I am definitely an Obliger, as per Gretchen Rubin’s fantastic book Better than Before which I have almost finished), so I was extra excited when I was contacted by the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation to promote this historical learning campaign. This is an area that… Continue reading Join 10,000 People In This Global Learning Campaign!
I have spent more of my life than I would like to admit sitting in front of a screen. Just look at this picture my daughter drew last year in her “all about Mommy” assignment: I mean, she could have drawn me playing music, baking, cooking, I mean, even “do laundry” would’ve been better in… Continue reading How I Kicked A Bad Social Media Habit
Happy Chanukah! My five-year-old is running around saying “A Freilichen Chanukah!” to everyone. It’s adorable, since he can *almost* say it, but not completely. It’s been a long, long, loooooong time since I’ve made a video (this was the last one, two years ago!). I’ve been really wanting to make another one, but there’s always… Continue reading Chanukah Mashup Video
Anyone else feel like the beginning of 2019 was about fifteen years ago? I had to think really, really, reaalllllly hard to imagine what I was doing back then, twelve months ago. One of the best things about blogging is that I have a built-in reflection system where I can just look at what I… Continue reading 2019 Year End Review
Hello hello! I’m so happy to announce that Melissa Amster is the winner of this Chanukah Giveaway. Thank you all for entering and thank you to the vendors who so generously donated their stuff! Have a Happy Chanukah everyone!
It has been a long long (very long) time since I did a giveaway, and I had the idea in my mind to maybe do a Chanukah giveaway this year, but as with many nice ideas in my busy life, it existed only in its potential state (meaning it wasn’t gonna happen). But thankfully Rivka… Continue reading Chanukah Giveaway!!
