Gathering the firewood…

I always think of the “The Ant and the Grasshopper – Aesop’s Fables!” I think about how easy it is to be the grasshopper and ignore what is coming, just for the pleasures of the moment. I have decided that we can still have the pleasures and get things done, I just pace myself and do both. Though yesterday, Boza…

The weather is perfect and those coffee thoughts…

At 5:30 a.m. it was 10 degrees above zero and the breeze drifted the fresh air into the house, at a leisurely pace. The sun poked its head up and I saw a moon that was simply huge and realized that this moon was a “SuperMoon” that comes around once in awhile. Tonight I will get images of it with…

Salo Recipe… (Cured Pork Belly Fat)

Salo; a food that is endearing to the Russian Villager almost as much as Vodka is. Salo is considered a food of the foods and the one who brings Salo to the party is the guest of honor. But…. it better be good homemade Salo… 🙂 Good link as any to what Salo is… I heard that, “Ewwww!” Here is…

Boza and I exploring…

I found a broken down home that squatters are living in. I saw them peaking out from the old overgrown road, from their home they have moved into. They have been getting water at night from the well and today I decided to follow the trail they have left to their home, a home buried in the weeds. It is…

All Leaving and coffee…

Woke up kinda sad this morning. Sveta leaves today and a bunch of villagers are leaving this weekend. My buddy Nikolai and his wife will take off this weekend and not be back until next summer. Nikolai went to the Big Village Tuesday on one last trip for this year. He had so much fun traveling to the Big Village…

Leaves are turning and it is cold; but not the coffee…

Summer is an interesting thing in Russia. There just is not a summer most years. Seriously, there has not been over a week that anyone could swim in the lakes this year. Oh, some diehards decided to try to, they ended up sitting on the beach in their swimsuits shivering.  Now as I looked this morning, the leaves are falling…
