In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

All Leaving and coffee…

bearcoffeeWoke 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 every week with me and he thanked me very much for taking him…

But the sadness only last a short time, for I have so much to do and not enough time to do it. Sveta and I talk everyday by phone and she wished she could stay longer in person, but she has family in from Great Britain, thus, she must get back home and meet them all…

I am hoping also that Sveta and her mom take a trip to the Black Sea and do some swimming. They need to, but I do not control what others do, just myself and it seems only a 50/50 proposition right now. Sveta has a wonderful mom and those two need to spend a few weeks traipsing around Sochi or the Crimea…

Sveta also needs to ride her bike a bunch more, for Moscow has had a bike resurgence and bike trails are everywhere. The Muscovite’s are bike nuts right now…

They are repairing the fish nets at our lake and repairing the docks. It looks like soon they will harvest this lake. I have my tripod for the camera and will take some serious pictures of what they do. I have perfect seats to watch the process and will post a few pictures in the future. Almost fish (ryba) time… 🙂

Therefore I will leave this post. I have walked Boza, the neighbor is burning a fire to keep warm and Sveta is stirring under the covers of the bed. Time to fix breakfast and get going for the day. Sveta leaves tonight…
