It’s Snowing!

It has been snowing here for the last few days! Despite the fact that the negative temperatures (today it was -14!) have brought frozen water pipes and a slippery sidewalk, it’s very beautiful outside.

Apart from the snow, here are my top three moments of this week:

  1. When the traveling toy salesman (yes, that’s a real thing) came around to the center and we got to test out all of the toys.
  2. Having a conversation (in Russian) with some of the center’s beneficiaries that lasted more than 2 minutes.
  3. Finally making Mămăligă and not completely burning it. (Next up: Zeama!)

  1. Jessica, Thanks for the latest news. Sounds soooo cold! Take care on those slippery sidewalks! What is it that you have cooked and will challenge next? Any English name for it? Grandma

  2. Jessica,
    Where are you? I thought you had just gone shopping in Yokohama, and here you are on the other side of the world. Hope your Russian is half as good as mine. And, tell those two roomies to be good to you, or they’ll have me to contend with. I might even bring Scotty along to bite them!
