Before I left most of the comments I got about my trip related to the weather. Since most of you are probably too lazy to look it up for yourselves, I thought it might be nice to highlight the weather here. Today we had a high of 32F. By itself 32 is not bad at all, but it was breezy besides, and that did make it rather numbing. But I don't believe it will get really arctic until after we're gone.
The ladies of the apartment went out walking today. We took the bus downtown and visited a bookstore and the outdoor market. The outdoor market is a tourist destination that sells fifty million nesting dolls, ten kinds of amber jewelry, and a few other things. Dog Evil visited my bed while we were out walking. My dislike of him deepens.
The D parents are leaving for Vladivostok in a week, so we all sort of have a week to rest after the busy schedule of Vyborg before it picks back up again. Nanny 2 and I will definitely be busier while the D parents are away speaking, since we'll be doing school as well as all the overseeing that parents normally do.
