HO HO HO, MERRY CHRISTMAS! Or should I say Snowvem Godem! Today, January 7th, is Russian Christmas. How fitting that we would be able to come home from the office and open the Christmas gift that our daughter Shauna, Jeff, and Kyler sent us. Thank you Jeff and Shauna for the great gifts and the graham crackers! Can never have too many graham crackers! (we didn't have any). Once again, when it got dark, we heard popping sounds outside the window and we were treated to yet another fireworks display. It's been going on every day since New Year's Eve.
On our way to the office today, we passed a couple. I said "snowvem godem". She looked very surprised and didn't respond, but Dave said he saw her smile. I didn't see the man's response.
We've enjoyed a respite in the weather, with milder temps in the high 20's and low 30's. It has been delightful. Tomorrow, temps are going to plunge again.
May the new year bring you joy, love and a renewed appreciation for the gift of family. DosVidonya!
