It is Almost Christmas and Time is Erasing the Old Habits!

After having been here in Russia for over three years now (In fact – this is my 4th Christmas in Russia!) and getting acquainted with the Russian ways and culture, I have started to lose the excitement of the December 25th Christmas time frame. Now my thoughts are centered around the first week in the New Year! Russia has around a week off at the first of the year and this year my brain is geared to that holiday.

Our Cabin!

This year Svet and I are going to travel to our tiny little village and stay for a week. I can not think of any better way to start the New Year than in the little village cabin, heated by a wood fireplace.
We will take lots of potatoes, eggs, milk and meat. We have a propane stove that I cook up a big skillet full of goodies and we eat right out of the skillet. Yummy!
I also am going to take lots of pictures and will most likely be putting together a video of the village in the winter time. I am very interested in what the church has been doing at the village while we have been gone. (Link)
So Svet and I are looking forward to this trip. The village is about 400km from Moscow, located on a beautiful river with a whole bunch of lakes. If you have been following us over the years then you know all about the special Russian village called: Sunrise to Freedom!
Windows to Russia!

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
