We bought landscaping fabric and borders today for the garden too so we're working on it. The kid and I went on a walk and met some of the neighborhood kitties.

We've had a very strange week friends. On Wednesday morning I got a call from a friend that the park's maintenance men had broken into our old house! We still have stuff in the house so hubby went up there and called the police. It was a mess but nothing was stolen and we got the rest of our stuff out of the houses asap.
Then last night hubby and I are sitting on the couch together about 7 pm and I hear a big crunch outside. I'm instantly paranoid because we are getting new neighbors. Sure enough someone had hit our car.
What's worse? It was a company van from the homeless shelter that were helping our new neighbor move in. We exchange info because they shattered our taillight and it needs fixed. What a messed up week.
So I decided to post about it and a friend asked me 'Wow maybe you should check your mezuzot' (For those not Jewish it's a mitzvah that we should have the word of Gd inscribed on the doorposts of our house. So we have a mezuzah. Which you can read about HERE)
I tell her the truth, we've not been able to put up our mezuzahs because the main one for our door was destroyed in the move. Without telling me, my dear dear Orthodox friend went right to her Shul and purchase a new case and klaf for me! She mailed them asap and told me to expect them Monday.
So I'm hoping that getting the mezuzah affixed to our doorways will get some good juju into our house. I know it will make me feel more safe at least.
This is the new mezuzah that is on it's way to us

I've not taken any photos of our apartment really yet. Mostly because I'm waiting to get the final boxes unpacked and then I'll share with you all.
I do have a really cool vintage doll on her way to me. But I'll make another post about that.
I hope to see you guys soon
Shabbat Shalom and blessings to you
