Before I begin with my musings, I want to thank all of you who are reading this, sharing it, or adding comments. They mean more than you know!!
So, I just spent almost 45 minutes looking for an OUTLET!!!!!!!! I am in the shpytalyk anteroom as I write this. It is so friggin hot everywhere here. Today the kitchen was miserable. Do you think that maybe the 4 double ovens working at full blast cooking BAKED ZITI had something to do with it??? I was cutting celery and sweat was pouring down my face. Thankfully we had cookie dough ice cream for dessert. I ate alot. I haven't had ice cream in a while. I also stepped into the freezer perhaps one time too many just to cool off. I think it's 18 degrees in there. Nice..
So I'm trying to teach the pani v kyxni from Ykraina some "english-isms." They were putting cream cheese on the bagels this morning and I told them that's called a "shmear". They laughed, repeated it, and then said that SHMIR po-ukrainsky is axle grease. That got an even bigger laugh. Hey- a group of us old people is getting together for a swim. A swim!!! I'm so excited I could cry. Not too thrilled about putting on my bathing suit. At least it will be dark out.
