Гуляла вчера по Бостону и думала, это Дэн во всем виноват. Он разбудил во мне лягушку – путешественницу. И теперь периодически меня куда-то несет. Моя мама в таких случаях говорила: “Домовой тебя не любит”.
Я очень люблю Бостон. Езжу туда чаще всего спонтанно и поэтому в одиночестве. Здорово, когда нет конкретного повода, когда просто садишься в автобус, едешь, гуляешь в толпе людей и притворяешься туристом, а потом возвращаешься домой.

I was walking around Boston yesterday and I thought it was all Dan’s “fault”. He awakened the frog-traveler in me. And now I periodically need to go somewhere. My mother used to say, ” the Domovoy (literally “Household Lord”) doesn’t like you.”
I love Boston. I go there most often spontaneously and therefore alone. It’s great when there is no specific reason, when you just get on the bus, arrive somewhere, walk in a crowd of people and pretend to be a tourist, and then return home.

We started our day by grocery shopping. It had been awhile since we’ve done that together. Our work schedules don’t coincide too often lately.
For breakfast we had Russian blini. Daniel, as usual, had them in American style with Maple syrup. I ate them with jam, not sore cream though today. LOL
Later on today Daniel baked muffins (I’m pleased with the fact that a husband is a baker in our family), I did the dishes, washed clothes, and worked on my scarf. My mom wouldn’t be happy with me because of this. When I was a kid, there were some bans on Sunday’s activities. She considered knitting, sewing, doing laundry on Sunday a sin.

I was born on a beautiful May morning. But my favorite time of year is charming Autumn.
It started when I was a child. Unlike other children I waited for September 1 and the beginning of the academic year.
Over the years, my love to Autumn only intensified. I consider it the most beautiful and comfortable time of the year.

6 years ago I came to America with one suitcase. But first I sent a parcel to the U. S. with books. What were those books?

5:30 in the morning. I am taking a dog for a walk.
There are a few reasons for such an early walk:
- In dark you don’t meet too many owners taking their dogs for a walk. So Crackle wouldn’t go crazy and bark.
2. In the evenings I may be tired for a walk.
3. “The demons don’t like fresh air”, David Sedaris. It’s a good time to make my thoughts clear.
So, 5:30 am – dark, quiet, not warm.

There is an expression (more like a joke): if you like a girl, grab her and make her happy.
I recently received a message from an acquaintance that made me remember this expression.
The story is:
7 years ago I joined the site to practice English.
