This is what I had written when I started my blog at But Mostly Hers about 6 1/2 years ago (today being November 30, 2015):

I’m usually a non-fiction reader and I guess, writer. That way I can’t get upset with endings because they’re supposed to be based on facts.  Fiction is too finite and usually doesn’t go the way I would want.

Thus a love of the belle-lettre form which is now, I guess, changed into blogging. I originally called it this (But Mostly Hers) because I wanted to make my voice heard over the voice of my husband, the rabbi, especially when he rephrases my ideas in his words, but I realize that there are many other wise people in the universe I am eager to hear. So please let me hear your opinions and reveal as much as you want about your own self.

And you should know I love my husband, my kids, and yes yes my wonderful most fantastic grandchildren who are of course the most wonderful and most brilliant in the whole wide world!

I think I’ll put the cast of characters here, just in case.

  • ISHI-Hebrew for “my man”, in other words, how I refer to my husband for this blog
  • FIL–my father-in-law, whose life often makes me reflect on mine and values
  • D#1, D#2, S#1, S#2–I think you get the picture now–daughter #1, etc…
  • SIL–sons-in-law and
  • DIL–daughters-in-law

Any others that I’m forgetting to explain? If you see anything, let me know.

And this tells you something but clearly not very much. You’ll have to read for yourself to find out more.  And as I write, I do, too. And I am trying to find the hidden that is all around us.

What has changed since then?

We now have 12 grandchildren; my FIL has passed on to his next destination; our kids live in 3 different continents (North America, Israel, and Australia); I am not employed at the moment and am looking for the next great adventure always.

Okay, that hasn’t changed.

The next big to-be-scheduled one is making aliyah–moving to Israel. Proposed timeline? Summer 2016.

    1. Thanks for your interest! I think there’s a little button at the bottom of the page that says “Follow.” Since I’m following my own page, I can’t really tell:). I guess if it works, WordPress will let me know!

  1. There we go, following now. Working from phone and ended up going to “view full site” with that said שבת שלום. And that is about the extent of the Ivri (Hebrew) I can do off top of head.

  2. Well, Hi! Pleased to make your acquaintance! I am also a grandmother (to 9) and a great-grandmother to 4 +1.But people have a hard time believing that since I am only 66 and B”H, don’t look my age. I live in Israel, made aliyah in 2005. Any questions? Don’t hesitate to ask. I look forward to reading more! Hatzlacha!

    1. Wow! I will have to wait a few more years for great-grandparenthoodedness, since our eldest is only 13, but how time flies…I hope you don’t regret agreeing to answering questions;). Thanks for commenting, too!
