Our Village in Russia is a Wonderful Dream…

We Rebuilt The Fallen Outhouse...

Sveta and I have just returned from a wonderful two weeks in our village.  In the village, life comes to a screeching halt and all the pressures of the city are gone. You simply do what feels right and breath deeply…

One of 10 main projects this time was to try to bring the old outhouse back to life. It had collapsed into the hole dug beneath it and was in a serious situation, that included falling down on our fence…

So after doing some investigation into the total shape of said building. Sveta and I decided to become carpenters for a day…

Once again we have a solid and ugly outhouse that does its job that is intended… 🙂

Sveta was the painter...

Sveta applied a coat of paint to the essential part of the outhouse and now we are “uptown” as they say…

We had multiple of other projects and I will be bringing them up as the week goes by…

Sveta and I had a rough time coming home and we wanted to stay in wonderland a few more weeks or maybe for the rest of our lives. But the call of the city and responsibilities won out and we decided to come back to Moscow

It is strange how stepping back to a simpler existence makes everything have a better perspective. Water comes from a well that we draw up in buckets. Electricity is unstable as a strong wind and you must be able to create from scratch all necessary repairs on things…

That is what makes it feel like home to me…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
