Brown Sugar is “koosny”. Delicious.

Tom was packing up some of our brown sugar today to give away to our landlord and to our pastor’s family. I walked in while he was doing it and asked what he was was up to. After he told me I said “you can’t do that without giving them something to use it for!”

I went to the computer to print out copies of Mom’s recipe for Blonde Brownies. Lena and I finally finished the Russian translation. I worked on it and then Lena made corrections. We had to actually measure things using Russian utensils to make the changes. After Tom packed up one container he took it over to our landlord’s mother & she was thrilled! She recognized the paper as a recipe right away and asked if the container had the brown sugar in it! They don’t have brown sugar here so it will be a treat when she bakes the brownies.

Anastasia made me a necklace at kid’s camp today. She is one of the helper’s working with the kids. It is such a pretty necklace. Tom thinks she is very creative. The necklace is leather and has a shell on it and some yellow beads. She arranged everything so artistically. Tom would like to see her go to Art school but she is saving for Cosmetology school. Nathan didn’t make it to kid’s camp today. He has a cold. He has made a little friend who feels sorry for him that he does not speak much Russian. It is a little boy about half Nathan’s size who is going around naming things in Russian for Nathan. But, instead of just telling Nathan what something is he also tells Nathan a story about it. This is a ball... one time I had a ball..... You get the idea! Nathan says he is very cute!

Here is the recipe for the brownies again in case you missed it. This time I am including the Russian translation!
