Boza and Bear the bachelors…

Sunday night and Boza and I drop Sveta off at the train station; Boza takes it real hard for a few days and does not eat properly and or mopes around like a lost puppy. This is the way it is when Boza and I become bachelors and this time it might be for about two months, before Sveta comes back to see if we have built a new bachelor pad or not…

Therefore, Boza and I will get use to being alone again and in a few days we will start rebuilding our bachelor pad and yard that we live in now…

20150506_184751Goals:

1.) Rebuild lean-to at back of home. It is collapsing… >>>>>>>>>

2.) Finish putting in the garden and caring for it daily…

3.) Finish removing a huge plum tree that never produced plums and tried to kill all the apple trees with suckers from the roots…

4.) Cut firewood for possible winter stay…

5.) and a thousand other things; like repair the body on the Volga car and repair the fence around the property…

The lean-to is vital to get working on as it is attached to the village home and is literally starting to fall down. To save the home is to save the lean-to. Plum tree is cut down, but now it has to be cut up and hauled away, it was a big tree…

This last weekend in the village was busy, lots of people showed up to start their gardens and clean their village homes and that means that there will be lots of weekend warriors all summer long, trying to salvage their gardens every weekend. makes for crazy weekends and empty weekdays. It is kind of nice, get to see people for a few days and then peace and quiet all week long…

The Victory Day holiday is starting point for summer here in Russia and I plan on staying through the whole summer until the gardens are done and turned again for next year. Though at the end of October I have to take a trip to Estonia again and deal with business…

The temperature is about 18 Celsius day time and 5 Celsius nighttime. Just perfect weather for Boza and I, but Sveta found it too cold for her liking and we had to start a fire every night to keep the chill away from her. Today I have to drive to the Big Village and pick up some dog food that we ordered from the local store. I also will stock up on groceries and stuff. Big shopping day for Boza and I, then I will most likely not leave again until next Monday. Once a week is the plan for going to the Big Village…

I was just out and looking at the cherry trees and they are almost drooping with the weight of the all the honey bees on them. The Orthodox church has a bunch of bee hives nearby and I can see why; with all the plum, cheery and apple trees blooming, the honey would be exceptional from these hives…

Sveta sent me some images of her train ride last night and she had the best of all worlds on a train. She had a single plus-car and she enjoyed it. She also sent me an image of her food in Moscow, for I will not be there to cook and Sveta does not cook, thus she eats different than when I am there… (Besides she says it is diet time!)

* * * * * * * * * *

Well that is all for today, Boza and I have to get ready for going to town and Sveta promised some people down the way that I would try to change their propane tank for them. So therefore, we are going to try to see if they are up and get that done before going to town…

Hmm, town, I just thought about a little kiosk that sells pies and such. They have sausikas or pig-in-the-blankets in America…

So yummy good…
