Today has been a rollercoaster day, but in all the good ways. It's Tuesday and lately Tuesday's mean that school is thrown to the wayside, and my son and I head to the big city. To us, Bratislava is the big city and adventure to trek to as it takes a couple of hours. On Tuesday's our church hosts a bible study. One week it's for men and the other it's for woman. I go for both because I also have a meet up with other creative expat moms to knit and crochet together for a couple of hours while we chat at the cutest cafe and bookstore. I also have the time to meet my friends who live in the big city. I go to them, they do not come to me.
Tuesday's are really exciting and refreshing. It does create some craze at home because we have to be out of the house by noon while trying to throw in so much before we actually leave. I usually do not eat breakfast and enjoy a quick sandwich at the train station. Today was no different. I did manage to finish my friends Christmas present, a handmade clay house plant holder. I've been making them lately and love how they look. I also knit her slippers, but didn't finish the second one. She ended up with only one slipper and a promise of the next.
The best part about today was meeting my said friends newborn baby girl Maribelle. Newborns are just so precious! Also, the fact that we found the Russian store and bought Pelmeni. I've been wanting them for a few years now and couldn't be happier that I found a store that sells them. It means that I can truly make Slovakia my home now because honestly, that was the only things that was missing and you think I'm joking. Nope, I am 100% serious!
