ה׳ באייר ה׳תש״פ
- One who recited the blessing and counted “today is fourdays…” but then realized that it is day five—if he is still within the time-period of toch k’dei dibbur (the time it takes to say the words, “Shalom alecha Mori veRabi”), he should immediately correct himself and say “five days” etc. and he does not have to repeat the word hayom, “today is.” But if it is after toch k’dei dibbur, some authorities maintain that he must recite the blessing again and count correctly, while others say that as long as he did not do or say anything extraneous since reciting the blessing, he should count without reciting a new blessing (Shulchan Aruch, Mishnah Berurah and Kaf HaChaim 489:5).
- Some have a custom to count again [without the blessing] after the morning prayer of Shacharisso that in case he had forgotten to count on the preceding night, he will have counted during the day, which would allow him to continue counting with a blessing on the subsequent nights of Sefiras Ha’omer(Kaf HaChaim ibid.).
"Moshe corrected them to Israel, to be asks and demands on the day's issue, laws of Pesach on Passover, laws of Atzeret at the assembly, the laws of festival on the festival" (Megillah 32) 1
