Next few days…

imagesWithin the next two days, we are going to the village. It is May Holidays in Russia, so Sveta has a week off and she will spend that time in the Russian Village (with Boza and I,) that beautiful Russian village! Then I will stay the summer in the village and work on the garden, house and yard. Time to plant beets and turnips and or rutabagas?Actually a carrot or two will find its way also…

Sveta will get back to Moscow in time for the big parade on the V-Day on May 9th, 2015. I hope her and her mother get to go. Since I am not a social person (and I admit it,) I prefer the peace and calm in the village and Boza will be there with me as we walk around the forests and fields, checking on all the new spring foliage growth; plus writing in the blog and dealing with the internet businesses we have…

Boza and I might just spend the winter at the village also? I think it would be good for him and I…

Therefore, today I will finish packing Sammy the Volga with all out goodies and I will take almost all my clothes this year. Last year I was not ready and did not take enough clothing. It made it hard to act at times. Got to have my hiking boots and mud boots, for simple things as that make or break a days excursion…

I am taking every tool that I own and all my electronics and such. Even if I stay only six months, that is a long time and I need all my tools of the trade. As easy as it is carted down to the village, it can be carted back to Moscow… 🙂

I will be posting about the village and mainly just the village. That is why the upper section of the blog is devoted to articles about the village. If I had my druthers, I would live full-time in the village and never leave, but alas; life does not allow such happenings and they are just wanting thinking within my personal desires. Hopefully those desires will become reality and I will someday be able to spend the rest of my days in the village here in Russia. I also have a goal to work at the Fish Village in the farm ponds and I will be trying to perfect my Russian to allow that to happen. I think that they could use a native English speaker…

I am almost besides myself trying to be patient and wait to get to the village. I miss it so much that it almost hurts; last year I healed almost completely and I realize that this is from the village that is a monastery. I am even thinking of doing like many do in the area around the village and drinking only Holy Water from the special springs in the forest. We have several springs of fresh water that are blessed by the Orthodox church and many people use this water for their source of liquid and they swear by it as being beneficial…

Regardless of right or wrong, if it makes me feel better; then it will so be…

  1. I’m anxiously awaiting your blogs from the village. Maybe I will be able to glean something worthwhile from when my mother was a child living in a Russian village (stanitsa) before everyone in her family died during the holodomir. I know no one from my mother’s Russian side other than my mother so I am most interested in how she may have lived as a young girl. What her house may have looked like, her yard, her village. Even though she lived in Krasnodarsky Krai, I’m sure most villages are similar. Thank you and bless you in your travels. L

  2. What a sweet email from Lucy! Hope she gleans a lot from your research…

    Bring all of your medicines, bloodpressure cuff, Book on homeopathic meds, dm apparatus, etc.

    Take care of yourselves,

    Moi
