A Decision

I've decided to put this aside for now; I'm beginning to resent it, and stitching isn't supposed to be punishment!  So it's in my started-to-do-later cubby.  I think it's a combination of the way the lines are hard to see and that I'm not good at it.

Big Dinner At Grill House

 Our Friday dinners out have grown.  This dinner is an example- we had over twenty people.  We called Grill House in advance, and they had a table set up for us.  The food was good and we all had a great time.  I had carpaccio and shashlik.  The plated foods are from various people.  As it was all taken on my (old) cell phone the pictures didn't turn out great.

Old Fashioned Find

We found a stationary set at Collegium Maius in Krakow.  It's such an unusual thing to find!  The printing's also beautiful.


I am making a bit of progress on this.  i like the way it looks, too!

Our Street

 Ever since June, contractors have been laying water and sewage lines up and down our street.  It got particularly bad for us getting in and out of the driveway in the past month or so.  Here are some photos taken one day as we left last month.  Sometimes it's good to be leaving home.

Cross Stitches Done And A Problem

Soo.... I finished all the cross stitches on this and am ready to start in on the backstitching, including the borders.  The problem?  I've misplaced it.  It's either at the office or at home somewhere.  I'm not in either place until January, so it's going to sit for a while.

Birthday Dinner

We were home for only four days between two trips, and one of those days was my birthday.  Andreas took me out to Seasons that evening for dinner.  I had a Long Island iced tea as my drink.  It was done up all frou frou.  Andreas had his usual Greek salad and a club sandwich.  I had zeama and beef salad.  All were very good and served attentively.  Seasons is one of the few dependably quality places, day in and day out, in Chisinau.
