One way to tell that Spring is coming: today on my run I only needed to wear three layers of shirts, and none of them were fleece! :)
Then on my way home I stopped by the perekrestok and picked up some strawberries for only 79 roubles (less than $3!)...okay, so they were imported from Israel, but strawberries that DON'T cost an arm and a leg? Another sign that Spring is on its way!
