We have a surprise holiday tomorrow! No, it's not Valentine's day, it's Russians Leaving Day. Or something like that. They've never had this holiday before at this time as far as we can tell. But we have the day off. Of course, we're still on security restrictions, so we can't go lots of places. But we're going to have a good time anyway. A real breakfast and an inside picnic. It will be good.

We've got close to 20cm of snow here. It's awesome. This country needs the moisture so much, and it's supposed to snow for another three or four days. That would be great.

We went to meeting this morning and it was really cool. I can't tell you lots else, but it was really great. I'm glad we went there, and we're probably going to keep going to that group for the time being.

After meeting, we went out to eat with some friends. It was a really nice time. Then we came back here and had another fire-building adventure, D called her students to tell them no class tomorrow, we re-arranged my room. Then we sat together for a while before going over with other friends to another teacher's house to eat. It's been a good day.

Tomorrow may be one holiday here, it may be a different one where you are at, but all of them are days to stop and reflect. Think about what has been done for you. You can hide it, you can fight it, but red stains of love remind your heart now.
