Snow is flying and Sveta has to leave…

It snows nonstop and yesterday I realized how ignorant I was not to get some snowshoes / Snow skis. Expensive yes, but still an investment worth the time. Maybe I can make a set? I will study the internet and see what I need to do. I have piles of snow starting to reach waist level in places and drifts much taller than that. It looks like two months of snow ahead and very little reprieve…

Sammy the Volga is bedded down until spring thaw and at this point it is all I can do to keep a path open to the gates, loop around the yard and to the well. I have to cut a path to the dump area and keep a path down the road near the home, so that Boza can do his doggy duties…

I will it seems have snow piles taller than my head and soon I will be hauling snow by the wheelbarrow and out of the yard. Getting kinda cool now…

Last night several people from America donated money for the hosting. I was extremely happy and to top it all off; I did not get a single hateful e-mail. I got several upbeat and helpful e-mails and I am thankful for that. It seems that at times the good people will speak. There are good people in America and I acknowledge that. Thus, I appreciate when Americans prove me wrong. Wish it was more Americans, but I will take a trickle and hope it grows to a stream…

I will stay silent about who donates, unless they tell me it is okay! You are able to communicate through PayPal and leave me a message and whether you want me to have your e-mail address or not. Silence is best in my eyes, but that is up to the individual…

We are getting close to enough money for paying the host bill and then I can start on the other fees associated with the site of Windows to Russia…

Once again Thank You very much for the money to pay the sites bills and for caring…

20160118_113017This is my favorite spot in the world. —>>>

I thank God here, I thank Sveta here, I thank Boza here, I thank anything in the world that is good here and I wish and pray for the bad in the world to get its act together. This is my favorite spot to sit and look out over the valley and breath the freshest air and most wonderful energies of the monastery, this is where I sit to heal and it does not matter what the weather is…

This is my spot to contemplate life…

As the title says; Sveta has to leave tonight and we will have to call a taxi and walk two or more kilometers to get to the main highway to meet that taxi. Then I will send Sveta off to meet the train and walk back to the Tiny Russian Village Home…

It will be sad for her to leave, but it has been wonderful with her here. She might try to come back at the end of February, but I think that the snow will be seriously deep. I will be making a few store trips on foot and stock for February. February looks to be snow the whole month and never any melting…

The mental list is growing and it looks like I will have to write down the issues that I find as I live here. There are things that are necessities and things that are wishfulness. Either way, they have a purpose and reason in my head. We are seeing snow skis being used and snowshoes being used. Not sure which is best for Sveta and I? I also know that Boza is going to get snowed in, before I am. He is close to the ground and it is getting hard for him to get around. That is why I must clean areas for him to walk and play. He still loves to play ball and a little snow should not take that away! Should it?

Have a nice day…
