    Wow! Winter is back! It's snowing really hard (you probably can't see this because exposure isn't right).
    And to think that we had such a wonderful weather two days ago...




    How it's in your part of the world?

    Здесь - сегодня была очень весeнная, тёплая погода - с легким ветром.

    Here, today was very spring-like, warm weather, with a gentle wind.

    "Spring-like" would be "весенне" in Russian, and the sentence would be "здесь сегодня было очень весенне", technically; but your variant with addition of the word "погода" sounds much better to me.
    And if you wrote "здесь было очень весенне", you can't write "тёплая, с мягким ветером" next. Because теплая what? You should write "погода" anyway: "погода была тёплая, с мягким ветром", or just "тепло, с мягким ветром".

    "Мягкий ветер" звучит не очень хорошо. Лучше сказать "с легким ветром (ветерком)". Иногда еще говорят "нежный ветерок".

    Re: Weather

    By the way, what is "Шагаю еле - еле - вершок за пять минут. Ну как дойти до цели, когда время жмут?" in your signature, Winifred?
    The correct quote is "когда ботинки жмут". If your signature is a sort of rephrasing, it is not clear then. "Время" requires a verb in the singular, "жмёт". But we don't say "время жмёт". We can say "время поджимает", if that's what you mean (time presses). Moreover, "время" does not match the metre.

    P.S. And it should be "еле-еле" (all together), not "еле - еле" with spaces.

    gRomoZeka,

    Sorry for the late response on this one... but on the day in question... I was out at the beach in SUNNY and WARM Malibu, California! (this photo was taken from Pepperdine University looking out towards the Pacific Ocean)


    and of course... had to have the cool car, shades and the top down because it was sooooooo sunny and warm


    P.S. what is the name and location of the church in your photo
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Yes, I did rephrase the quote. I'm an old lady, and time is pinching me!! The meter is off, for sure, but I didn't know any other Russian words that would fit. Unfortunately, "время поджимает," although correct, is even worse rhythmically. How do you say "poetic license?" "Поэтическая вольность?"

    Да, я перефразировала цитату. мне уже много лет, и это верно, что время меня умёт! Ритм не попадает в такт, конечно, но я не знаю других слов, которые бы (здесь) подошли. К сожалению, "время поджимает" ещё не попадает в такт. Как сказат"poetic license?" "Поэтическая вольность?"

    Thank you SO much for your explanations, as well as your corrections, they are so helpful! (but, if you are busy, don't worry, I'll ask if I don't understand).
    Correct my Russian, please! Пожалуйста, исправьте мои ошибки!

    Поэтическая вольность
    Yes, I understand what you mean, but it can't be considered as poetic license here. It just sounds bad, or does not make rhyme/metre.

    * genitive with negations

    P.S. The poet's name is Окуджава, not Окудзава.

    Girls, you are SO lucky! We can expect such a weather in May, at best.
    Cool shades!

    It's a Cathedral of Saint Sergyi in Kharkov, Ukraine (also called a Cathedral of 2000th universary of Christ's birth). It has no historical value, because it's less than 10 years old, but it's really beautiful inside. Nice stained glass too.

    Oops! I guessed how to spell it, and googled. It is actually misspelled on You-Tube!

    Может быть, "время не ждёт?"

    It's beautiful outside, too!
    Это ещё прикрасний собор на улице!(Can I use "тоже" here, or is that just with verbs??)

    If you don't mind a correction or two, the use of "a" makes it sound like an example, or that there is more than one. "The" is correct, you are being specific, and you need the specificity for "the 2000th" as well. Also, spelling of anniversary (typo?).
