Off to Winterland! The Tiny Russian Village…

Finally got the desk set back up. The monitor, keyboard and accessories are hooked back up and everything is working up to par again. Therefore, good to go until the next hard drive dies… Still can not find a darn mouse pad. I just use a piece of paper folded. No such thing as a decent mouse pad, actually any mouse pad, in this part of Russia…

The birdbrains are a happy bunch. We have 30 to 40 sparrows, 20+ chickadees and 6 Jaybirds. The yard is full of happy sounds all day long. Makes life a joy…. I sing Jaybird, Jaybird, Jaybird and the Jays come looking. I then sing Chick, Chick, Chick – adee – adee and the chickadees come flocking…. I sing babybirds, babybirds, babybirds and the sparrows come for dinner time. Big grain for the jaybirds. Tiny millet for the sparrows and sunflower seeds for the chickadees. I also put out unsalted salo for the Jays and chickadees. The sparrows seem to ignore the salo… (We are losing some sparrows, just too brutally cold, for too long!)

I pulled all the vitally important rugs and carpets, vital as in no frozen feet, I did what any good Russian does, I tossed them on the snow and beat them. It is the way of Russia…

Then swept the whole room and reset cleaner rugs. Not clean, but cleaner… 😉

Then Boza and I out the gate and off to the winter land far far away!

We lucked out this morning at 3 a.m. only -4 and snowing. Gotta appreciate what Mother Nature gives you, when she is in a good mood, because it could be much worse…
