We had several days of summer in early April, and everything started to bloom.
I started to bike early in the morning, even on the workdays, which means that I started to run into deers
Also, the turtle started to get out of the water. I saw a huge one by the pond close to my house, but he jumped into the water so fast, I could hardly see him. The only thing I saw were bubbles :). The second one lives by the library, I see him there every year 🙂
There are also lots of cardinals, but my attempts to capture their images fail most of the time:).
My name is Henrietta (Hettie) Dombrovskaya. I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russian (actually, back then – Leningrad, USSR) in 1963, and immigrated to the United States in 1996.
I love Saint Petersburg, the city I was born and raised in, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Similarly (but differently) I love Chicago, and can’t imagine myself moving somewhere else in the observable future.
I have three children, Igor, Vlad and Anna, all adults living on their own, and one (so far) granddaughter Nadia. I also believe that my children are the best thing that happened in my life.
As for my professional life, I am working in the field of Information Technologies. When I was twenty, I’ve declared that the databases are the coolest thing invented and that I want to do them for the rest of my life. Thirty plus years later, I still believe it’s true, and still, believe that the databases are the best. These two statements together imply that I think a person can have it all, and indeed, I think so! Keep reading my journals to find out how I did it.
