Scav Hunt Sunday: Angels and Almond Butter

 After 8 nights and 44 candles there is sometimes more wax than silver left showing on my menorah...

 My very tangles spider plant, I love how it hangs down off the sill.

Guilty pleasure:
 Any nut butter...flavor in the fridge at the moment - almond.

 ...excuse the typos, I was tying quickly and emotional. Since the tragedy in CT and hearing about the #26acts campaign, I have been trying to come up with one to pay forward, but yesterday an angel of a gentleman and his wife gave me the greatest act of kindness, a spot on the airplane to Portland.

The joy I felt because of those two amazing people was beyond measure! aka reunited and it feels SO good!

Did you pile up the wax on your mennorah - or did it just happen to look like Dr. Seuss' Grinch sitting there between the candle holders? I showed a cake being a guilty pleasure - but your almond butter made me think how I LOVE to eat peanut butter - spoonfuls of it! Happy Holidays!

Oh I love your angel story! So many kind people out there! Obviously they didn't have to be anywhere in a hurry and it's so nice you got to get to Portland. Hoping you have a joyous holiday Tamar!

From a personal point of view, silver is my favorite. As a mom, I gotta choose Joy. Great shots. The plant was so awesomely lit.

Yay for angels. Look at your joy in seeing Noam!! I guess you could keep track of those acts of kindness going in both directions-give and receive. Have a wonderful visit.

I spent yesterday cleaning the wax of my menorah. It took forever, and isn't perfect, but I think good enough for next year when it gets coated with wax again.

Great story. I often wonder why we don't treat each other that way more often. I enjoyed your pictures also. Thanks. Have a great time this season

Well "Angels" come in many forms, how wonderful to be blest by those 2.

Great Tangled, I use to have a Spider plant but now with cats it's not feasible (they eat them).

Have a wonderful, joyous holiday season. Happy New Year!

Hooray for the kindness of strangers. I am totally going to have to try almond butter. I love almonds and I bet it's delicious.
