Sunday Salon: Sukkot and Art Deco
The Sunday Salon is hosted by Readerbuzz
We have finally passed all the high holidays, the last one we celebrated was last Sunday, which was Sukkot, and possibly one of my favorite. It is a happy fun holiday, a harvest holiday of such which is taken from Exodus 23:16. We also commemorate the 40 years of wandering the desert by eating and celebrating in small temporary huts like the ones they slept and ate in during that time.
We had dinner and a celebration at Synagogue and then also one at the Federation.
The weather, while still hot, is a bit better, the high humidity seems to have broken making it more bearable to get out. We spent an afternoon downtown touring the Philcade Building which also holds the Decopolis Art Deco Museum. The building was built in the early 30s and is full of Art Deco decor. The building was built by Waite Phillips brother of Frank Phillips of Phillips 66 ( I live in Tulsa, we were built on oil ), and was one of the first air-conditioned office buildings and shopping centers in Tulsa.
We have also started working on our Butlers Pantry. My husband finished up the ceiling, and I have gotten all the cabinets painted. We are hoping today that we will be able to start on the wallpaper.
Reading was pretty good last month, despite me feeling like I was always behind and not getting any reading done. I was able to get 14 books read, which might actually be a record for me. My favorites were Summer Sons and Be My Ghost.
That is all for me this week...drop your link in the comments so I can see what you have been up to this past week...
Happy Fall y'all!
