Yes, I did point and shoot at our Haddassah study group yesterday. It was a perfect time to try out the new camera, and it did a good job. It was fair at low light, but very portable and able to shoot into things without me climbing on a chair.

So, what was the Haddassah study group doing? We were baking honey cakes for the residents of the Einstein Residential Center for seniors in Sacramento. Our goal was to bake, give each resident a cake and visit with them. During Rosh HaShana (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) it is customary to eat honey cake and apples dipped in honey. Honey is a symbol for sweetness in the new year.

The residents were very happy to spend time with us and receive their honey cakes. For us, it was fun to get together, bake and meet new people. Unfortunately, we were only allowed to have five women in the kitchen at once so we took turns. And, we also had a few minutes to continue our study.

And me? I took time out to break in the point and shoot!
