Almost Light 24 Hours…

The photo above was taken at 4 am this morning. No flash, I just love peonies…

Last night at 11:30 pm, I could have read a book outside still. It was dim but not black dark. The stars were showing, the moon is gone and the sky is light all night long in the distance. So light in fact that it turns our night into a permanent dusk or dawn at night. I got up at 3 am this morning and went out to water the blackcurrant, so that we will have plenty of good fruit to eat and it was just as light out, in fact more light out at 3 am, than 11 pm…

This is what I am thinking as I sip a cup of coffee this morning and ignore the stupidity called the western world. Sorry but the report that I read about “The Russian Aggression Act!”

It makes by blood boil and reaffirms my thinking’s about how stupid our government is. How terrible of a system that we have in place to run America and it reaffirms the fact that I know we need to install a new governmental system after kicking out the old to the garbage dump. This includes from president on down, for they all stink to high heaven and in the past these scoundrels would be tar and feathered…

Okay, enough of that and back to good thoughts; I do know that the days are getting longer and that the sun comes up before 5 am and it sets after 10 pm everyday. The days are definitely getting longer and I am going to study about how long they will get. I know that we at least have nights and the farther North you go, you lose even those nights and become eternal days, just as in the Winter, we have eternal nights. Pretty cool if you ask me…

I know that toward the end of June is the longest day of the year. At that point I suspect that we will be able to read a book at midnight and most likely all night for that fact. We will see, for I will most likely be here watching the sky… 🙂

My system has adjusted to only three to four hours of sleep at night due to no darkness and I sleep now three to four hours, when the heat is at it worse. It is what many around here do and it just makes sense. As Sveta says, “Do like the Spanish do! Siesta in the daytime…”

Moscow is easier to block out the real world, because here you live right smack in the middle of nature and it is the world and nothing but the world. 🙂 I just get overwhelmed in Moscow by the sheer humanity and here there is virtually no humanity to deal with…

What a wonderful place the Russian village is…
