Phew!  The overseer is out of sight momentarily whipping the other slaves, so I’m taking a quick blog break behind this palm tree.

I’ve never heard anyone else refer to the week before Passover in this way, but I think the Passover preparations are intended to make us feel that we really are slaves in Egypt!  Cooking and cleaning and moving furniture and building pyramids tables from sunup to sundown…

At least Moses gets a break now and then to check if Pharaoh has changed his mind:  “Let my people go put their feet up for a minute!”
