Cup of Coffee and Snowing in Moscow…

coolThat cup of coffee is wonderful after walking the dog early this morning. It is snowing like crazy and so beautiful to watch. This is the forth time it has snowed so far this year, but this time it is coming down good. It still will not stick to the ground, but Boza was sneezing as he sniffed the air and the snowflakes tickled his nose…

The picture sums it up here in Russia. Get bundled up, get the samovar out and get ready for a long winter. They are calling for -6 by Monday, so that means I have to check the car out before the temperatures start dropping into the -30’s and freeze the engine block solid…

I never got the rear axle changed and I am thinking that taking the car to a shop this winter and having a bunch of work done on it would be a good idea. However I want to do most of the work myself and since I do not have a lift to work on the axle, I will have that done by an outsider and the rest I will do. I started the bodywork this last year and have figured out a good way to re-enforce the weak spots. I miss my garage…

Oh! I love the snow and I love winter, but Sveta does not and it looks like our continual search for the perfect balance of life will continue. I know that I love living in Russia and I love the long winters. That does not mean that Sveta should have to endure a Russian winter the rest of her life. She grew up here and has endured these winters all her life and I see that she needs to be spending at least half a year in a warm climate to swim and walk the beaches. The real answer in life would be 6 months in Russia and 6 months in another part of the world…

We are planning a trip this February to a far away land and then another after summer is over. We are trying to find that perfect spot to spend part of the year at…

Sveta needs the change plus warmth and that is the most important thing in my life…
