1. Found wonderful peaches and nectarines today (won't last long)
2. Found spray starch that has disappeared from the markets for 3 months
3. The setting sun on the Esil River was absolutely gorgeous---the water was brimming with oranges and reds---so beautiful, thank you, Higher Being for such a wonderful sight
4. I have such wonderful friends here---all races and mixes---the upside to being an expat here
5. To be alive, free, and happy

1. James is coming home for the weekend!
2. Cubbie has been very affectionate today.
3. I'm eating tortilla chips (home-made, so less salt and ankle swelling) and salsa for lunch (I know, but I love them!)
4. It is freezing outside, but the sun is shining nice and bright
5. I can count to 5! (LOL--okay, couldn't think of anything!)

Friday Five--where to begin

I'm now on the other side of the continent if you live in the USA--back in Kazakhstan!

Hubby really glad to see me.
Two friends met me at the airport with balloons and bubbly which we drank out of yellow plastic cups.
Got home to a nice clean, warm apartment--it's minus 30 now.
Met a new person at work and we hit if off
Life is good
