Golden Branch

It's been stormy here in Budapest for almost five days straight -- several trees have been uprooted around our place and a big fence nearby was blown over. It's nice not having to commute out in this and we've been enjoying time with the bambino who just turned 10 months and definitely will be walking within a month or two. He's doing well. Over the weekend we saw Agi's grandmother and other relatives. Her name translates as Sophia (Zsofia) and she is a good, honorable, kind and hard working woman. She also feels that Agi is the direct embodiment of the all of these good qualities and has referred to Agi a number of times as "the golden branch." We all got a good laugh when I told Agi (this was translated for grandma) "it's true -- and this must make me the golden caterpillar."
