 tough tulips

“Tough Tulips” reign supreme after the snow we had which held some blooms captive, some flowers are delayed but they should be able to bounce back and glow with the best of them.  As I was walking down Furmanova yesterday, I must have seen about five stretch limos with several cars decked out in festive ribbons following behind.  Weddings abound in this spring time air.  What a beautiful day of crisp, clear blue sky weather we enjoyed as I made my brisk walk downhill to the Green Market.

I went to my favorite Second Hand stores (just north of Green Market) after I checked to see if my Iranian friend, A.Z. was still at her shop.  She was gone I was told by the gal behind the counter.  I will have to go to my sources to confirm that A.Z. sold her optical shop and is in Vancouver, Canada taking up her new job.  I was pleased to buy two pairs of Birkenstock sandals for $40 at one S.H. store, normally they cost about $100 each in the U.S.  I also bought some very blue dress pants.  I bought a gift for Ken’s upcoming birthday, actually I bought two gifts for him yesterday and can’t wait to surprise him on Wednesday.

I had a wonderful day for many reasons but one was witnessing a pink helium balloon drifting higher into the cloudless, blue sky of Almaty! (if you maximize photo, the balloon is the pin dot in the center) I felt as free and exurberant as that pink balloon!!!
