Rest Day! Yes really this time it is…

I know I say that allot, or so it seems, but I do not rest much. But today, I will force myself to rest. In the distance, I can see a bank of snow being driven by the wind. It will be here in less than an hour and it looks to be interesting, for the sky is turning black and the wall of snow is impenetrable looking…

I have to go to the Big Village tomorrow morning and that will be an excursion all its own. I have to travel slow and carefully, for the roads are slick and dangerous. I will pick up some supplies and three or four boxes of dog food for Boza. I promised the local pet store that I would be in to get more food for Boza. Boza is now eating a box of 24 packs everyday. He runs and runs, thus needs lots of food… 😉 At this pace he still has 2 plus months of food in stock at home, but I have to gather more while I can; you never know…

coolI just simply love winter. It is the most wonderful and beautiful time of the year. The cold seems to clean the air, ground and just life itself…

To me winter is not evil, but to many things winter is a necessary evil, for we must hibernate, slow down, re-energize and such. Winter forces that to happen and if taken correctly, winter is not depressing or sadness; Winter is the beginning of new life…

Winter is the sleep for the earth as we must rest every night, the earth must rest also…

That is how I look at it…

Vova went to a banya (sauna) in a nearby village. He had an accident at the banya and was badly burned on his chest, by scalding hot water. He laughed as he showed it too me and quickly pointed out to me how he saved his private parts from certain disaster. Thus his hands became burned also. Being burned on the chest and hands is one thing, but having Mr. Private burned would be terrible with a capital T!

jonesI spent a few hours yesterday with Vova and he made lunch for us. He was excited about a boxing match in Moscow and it did not come out the way he wanted it to…

Jones who recently became a Russian citizen, got his behind kicked royally by Enzo and that was that. Vova like many Russians wanted Jones to win, for well the simple fact that Enzo is a Britain and Jones became a Russian!

So while I did not watch the match, Vova gave me a round by round, blow by blow and knock down by knock down description and he even acted it all out for me. Punching the air… 🙂 (Can we say, “Extrovert?”)

Vova just loves sports…

I am going to settle down as the snow flies and read a good book!
