Happy Friday!

“A Generous Autumn” by Vladimir Yanaki

Hello friends,

Well, the cold and gray haven’t really let up in Moscow. Looks like there’s not going to be a бабье лето this year…

Other than that it’s been a good week. I’ve been away from work for so long that I’m starting to get lazy – today is my first day back in almost 6 weeks! How has your week been?

P.S. the beautiful autumn painting by Vladimir Yanaki was found here.

    I would like to have the link to the article about Putin and Syria.

    The blog post with the banana bread recipe makes me laugh, because there’s a story like that in Will’s family’s lore. A certain small child who was a picky eater used to slide things she didn’t want to eat under the cushion on her chair. She did that once with a whole banana.

What do you think?
