A day between Sunday and Holiday

Yesterday was Sunday, and tomorrow, Vernal Equinox Day, a holiday. Therefore, I had to work hard to finish the jobs remaining from last week and those I cannot do tomorrow.

She will be OK as usual after some rest. Yes, we found blossoms, too. Katya will probably post her better pictures later in her own photo blog. We played tennis for two hours.  It was fun on a … Continue reading
