I really don’t have much of any time to write today.
This week I got my shirts tailored, and the tailored life is a good one. I don’t know how Americans are okay with having our shirts normally baggy. I guess it’s just because we don’t care, but I really prefer tailored shirts now, and at 10 lei a shirt, why not get them tailored?
I’ve given up on this transfer’s baking theme. Cookies are cool, but I live for the intricate and new, and cookie dough, while always delicious, is messy on the hands (two to three times even as there are multiple batches). I made Rhubarb torte and carrot cake is up coming. Also, we’ve elected to make chicken pot pie a weekly dish after Saturday’s delicious lunch.
I hit my half-way mark this week! We went out to eat at a Romanian restaurant in the city center, and I got papanasi (a traditional Romanian doughnut-type dessert).
I gave a talk on missionary work on Sunday, my first unread (though thoroughly practiced) talk. I tied in how my missionary farewell talk was partially on Romanian and Moldovan pioneers. It seemed to have gone over really well, and was a really cool experience.
‘Til next time,
