Tobacco Road Done

Got this temari done, finally!  It looks good, I think.

Hanging Up

Another present from Andreas' parents!  It's a flag hook.  I think we've found a place to put it, but haven't found any extra Command thingees to hang it.

Best Steak So Far In Eastern Europe

Our last dinner in Odessa was at Steakhouse.  It's on Deribaskaya Street and pricey, but.... the food is excellent.  We started with a meat and cheese tray, which was abundant, to say the least.  I had a glass of wine from Spain, and Andreas had iced tea.  As usual, it's hard to believe it's tea.  Salads for both of us, with very fresh veg.  Andreas had venison, which was slightly overdone, but he liked it.  I had a wonderful steak.  It truly was the best I've had in eastern Europe, which is not a place known for beef.

Still making a little progress, if not much.  More red, of course, and done with one more line of the character.

Edging Along

I got more of this outer fence-ish edging done.  Soon, I'll start on the inside!

Neat Concept

Andreas' parents gave us this neat bowl for olives!  The pits go underneath, so you don't have to put them on your plate and clean up is easier.  Thank you!


Random bits of pictures around Odessa, including some playground shots for Betsy.  We're not sure why that doll's in the tree, either.
