International Women's Day Weekend

In this part of the world it's International Women's Day weekend: Women's Day was March 8. A lot of chocolate and flowers are bought and received, and now I understand nice presents are expected from one's spouses!

When I went to physical therapy on Friday, all the women wished each other "s nastupayushchim!" (best wishes for the upcoming holiday) and on the day itself, one wishes women "s prazdknikom" (happy holiday!).

But there are no flowers out yet. We still have snow that is thankfully melting, in- between a few low wind storms and snow sprinkles.
