Confession…

I yelled at Keith for washing his face with a wash rag!  OK, in my defense, he washed his face with a soap (whose fine print states to avoid dyed fabrics, which may be bleached by this product) with our very nicest towel set, that I save for guests...so they do not have to be subjected to our thread bare towels, that have been hanging on since our wedding almost 12 years ago!!!  Why do I save the best and not just enjoy it?!?!

Happy Halloween!!!

Another confession...I am homesick. I love Halloween, trick-or-treating, being anonymously silly...not to mention all the free candy!!! Most Russians know what Halloween is, but very few celebrate with fun costumes, Jack-o-Lanterns, sacks full of candy or fun Fall Carnivals.  So today, I did make treats for my kiddos teachers and classmates and had an amazingly fun International day having coffee with great ladies from 8 different countries this morning, prayed with moms from 3 different countries at School and had a yummy dinner at KFC...but, I miss this…

A Ghost…

I think that this apartment may be haunted!  I rarely bake and do not like to cook.  Many of the people that lived in this apartment before us were amazing cooks.  I can’t say that in the last month I have become an amazing chef or even a good one, but I have cooked way more often and have baked lots in the last month!
