Labor day weekend

We went on an 8 mile canoe trip Saturday morning. It was beautiful and sunny! We stopped a few times to take a break. It took us about 4 hours, my arms were a bit sore and next time, I'm packing a cushion to sit on!



I've been baking batches upon batches of piroshki. I also made some ginger meringues to sell at the "sweet booth." Our church is putting on a Russian Fest this weekend! See photos from last year: HERE. I will be working as cashier at the "main food pavillion," when I'm not singing in the folk group performances. Everyone welcome!


You must go over to A Tad Bit Prudish and check out Sylvia's giveaway. She is helping to promote the launch of Blissfully Domestic! I just read the article about vaccinations and then, making trendy and affordable wall hangings...love it.

Yes...it was! So much fun. Next time we are wearing out swimsuits and might bring Lusy. It was about $35, not bad at all!

What a shame I don't live closer! I would SO be there! Are you Russian, or is the church of Russian origin? (By the way, I found your friend Molly's blog, and I have to say, I absolutely LOVED her post on Virgin Mary!)
I have never taken a serious trip on a canoe... I think I'd die if I had to row! OR MAYBE I'D LOSE SOME WEIGHT!!!

Looks like you put on a nice festival. Our parish is hosting its first Russian festival in a couple of weeks. We'll see how it goes!

What fun! I'm glad you all raised a lot of money for the church! I'm sure the girls had a blast!
