Sheep and Wool 2011

I'm off to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this morning! The good news: it's about 20 degrees cooler than last year. I'm armed with a large bag, a knitting project, pieniÄ…dze* and sunscreen. If you spot me, say hi! (I have way too much blond hair, and I'll be wearing my Trellis and Keyhole tank).

*That's Polish for money. This is one of about four Polish words I know. Interestingly, I don't know the curse words, just a random collection of words my Dad remembers from growing up, like knife and money. Next time, ask me what czarnina is.

Sad that I missed you! I ended up only staying till about 1pm - carrying the baby around was a little too much to handle.

My dad only knew a few Yiddish words, too. Mostly insults or curse words. Interesting what our parents remember...
