Cold, wet, broken finger, wind, & no electricity…

IMG0347A
I set it with Popsicle stick, used a bee venom and ant acid ointment. Then wrapped and repeat once a day. The swelling is already gone, but I have to be careful to not re-break the healing stage…

Had to hibernate for the last few days. The bottom fell out of the temperature, thunderstorms constantly, electricity down for the most of two days, I broke my left pointing finger (rebuilding the front gate and caught my finger in a tensioned wire twist) and I got very sick with fever also. Therefore, I feel much better at this moment and Boza and I are going to take a long walk. It is still raining slightly, but the sky is much brighter and less dense with clouds, that means life is good… 🙂

The worst thing was not all the above, it was the winds that became relentless while all the above was happening. The winds became harder and harder, which caused the temperature to feel colder and colder. That is what got me and once chilled, I was in trouble. Broken fingers is part of my life, as I have broken many a finger, or should I say, “I have broken more than 50 bones in my life, for I have been full of rambunctiousness all my life!”

Last year if you remember, I drove a nail almost all the way through my right foot. I guess I have to do something every time I am down here, for if you remember also, a few years ago, I burned my belly really bad with a grease fire. It still is trying to finish healing after all these years. I have to say that I have a permanent huge scar on my belly from that incident…

Just another acquisition in my normal life on this planet. The balm above is the best stuff I have ever come across and Sveta is the one that found it for me. She bought me three tubes of it and boy am I glad she did…

Well Boza and I are going to take a walk. He has been short shifted lately, because I was not able to go anymore than a few minutes at a time. He is a good boy and tries his best to understand, so he deserves a long walk today. I have on three long sleeve shirts, long underwear, wool pants, coat, hat and gloves. Boza has his fur coat on, so we are set to go…

Have a nice day, for we sure will…

    ARE YOU KIDDING????? That’s all you needed!!!! Sooooo very sorry that you’ve had to go through this! You are a trooper, to say the least! I’m sorry that one of your typing fingers is in poor shape. I so look forward to your village stories and wish you had two a day. Would someone in the village ever invite you in for a cup of tea? That would be so very nice. Lucy

    Lucy, I hunt and peck at typing, so any finger does the job and now I use the left ring finger. It does the job just as good…

    The people in the village now and that is only a few of them, are not social butterflies. The ones still living year around here, are only two of them, and they do not really like each other. One man and one woman. I am of the same make and material, I stay to myself. There will be a collage professor soon to the village, who is interesting to talk to and I will converse with him. My Russian is not the best and most likely will never be the best. People talk too fast for me and in the village they do not understand any concept of slowing down their words to allow me to keep up with them. So it is all jumbled. One guy treats me as deaf and yells in my ear all the time. Sveta said that is how they perceive people who do not understand Russia fluently and while that compromises 50% of the people, the other 50% talk like mush in their mouth and I could never in a million years understand them. Sveta has trouble herself with some of them…

    If I needed help, they would help, that is Russian people for you. Same for if they asked me, I would help, but we all stay alone and at peace. That is the Russian way also…

    I was offered coffee or tea the other morning after helping a family (babushka, mom and small boy) down the way from us with their propane tanks. They offered me a cup of coffee, but I am a first reaction, no do not bother type of person. I will be on my way and out of your hair type person also. Call me if you need help again and I will be there person…

    Sveta is what I call a social butterfly, while I am a social grouchy bear, yes that is right, bears are not too social…

    I try to find time for one post a day, two would be using up lots of time that I need for a thousand other things. But if the weather stays terrible like this, I may write more than once a day. It is 4:30 am and I think I see a peeking of the sun. The clouds are dispersing? – so I am going to be busy if the sun shines…
