Patience: Will be glad when the snow leaves…

Even I am getting tired of the snow and we have had very little snow compared to the past eight years I have been here. But I think that the up and down of snow layers, has been worse than three feet of solid ice that is normal. We actually had a touch of early spring and it just made it mentally worse…

I am ready (just like Sveta and all the other Russians) to get to the village or dacha and get life in gear. Time for planting vegetables and painting the village home…

This spring / summer I am planning on staying at the village for about a month, just Boza and I will be there. Sveta will visit on the weekends and travel by train to see us. Then in the fall Sveta, Boza and I will spend about a month there. The big village has a railroad station and we will pick her up in town. I have to work on the village house and I have to work on the car. I need to do some bodywork to the car and get her ready to paint…

The village is a perfect place to do all that. I just have to survive the mosquitoes…

But alas we will have to wait a little bit longer and be patient a little bit longer…

That is one thing that Russians are good at: Patience…
