I am working on another old clock…

This morning I got up at 4:30 am and it was so wonderfully cool and refreshing. The inside of the village home was still warm and stuffy and Boza plus I, decided a walk was in order, then get water from the well, then eat and then I stared at the clock that I have tried to fix three times before. I decided to try one more time, the forth time is not normally known as the charm, but I tried anyway…

I am on my third cup of coffee and for two hours now, I have been listening to the tick / tock of a weight driven clock from the Soviet Era…

I will not celebrate yet, for things have a tendency to stop after I praise myself for a good job done, so I do not bestow praise, I bestow the opposite. I predict that the clock will fall from the wall and smash into a thousand pieces. Then as I cry crocodile tears over the lose of a wonderful treasure as you see in the photo, I will realize that I should never attempt to repair anything again. So break a leg clock…

Now that should cover the attempt by the spiritual gremlins to ruin my early morning work. So far it is working, for the clock is ticking away and keeping great time by the way…

It was not easy to get back together and since I did not have any parts left over, I figure something had to go right…

I know that the reason it stopped working, was because it was dropped many years ago, since then it has hung on the wall and simply looked pretty or at least as pretty as a clock with a strange design of a face and a bushy curled haired girl on the swing arm…

It is going to another hot day and tomorrow will be hot also. Then according to the weather forecast, all next week will be ten degrees cooler everyday and hopefully rain at some point in the week. I do not hope for too much, so if the cooler weather will happen, then I will carry water and feed the plants myself…

Also Sveta is coming today or I should say tonight at 9:30 pm. That means that this will be a wonderful day, for my sweetie will be here tonight for about a week…

Break a leg clock…
