Svetochka comes tomorrow…

CaptureI can’t wait. Svetochka comes tomorrow and I am so glad. I will be busy getting ready for her and then I have to spend a few days getting ready to leave for a few weeks. I will be back, for a garden has to be prepared and planted. This year I will quadruple the size of the garden..

I had a rough night! My diabetes went off the deep end to the low side. I seemed to eat candy and food all night and could never get it to come up. To be honest I was scared to sleep and now I am paying for it. In fact, when my sugar is low, very low, my body does not let me sleep. It was a rough night and I will stay busy today, but keep the pace slow and even…

I think my sugar is high now and this usually means that I have caught a bug or something and that starts the roller coaster ride with sugar levels…

This morning at 8 a.m. I drove to the Church Village. I needed to see if the roads are passable and they are. It was fun and would have been great, except I felt bad. The Fish Village guys all waved and hollered hello and I think they were shocked to see a Volga rutting its way through the mud. Sammy is a mud covered girl, so I have to clean her today or tomorrow. But she will get all dirty again, for tomorrow night, she goes to the Big Village to get Sveta. We will make it, I am sure…

I had to pull Vova and his Niva LADA out and I asked him what he needed. He went home from the second lake from our Tiny Russian Village and I continued on. He thought I was nuts, but Sammy the Volga has really good aggressive tires and that gives her the advantage. I think Vova is upset at his Niva, for now Sammy has pulled him out about 5 times this winter… 😉

The Fish Village has bulldozers up the hill near the bell tower and it looks like some work will be done for the monastery. Not sure yet, but I know now why Vova tried to get to town. They are going to plow the road better also and so I grabbed a big bottle of Vodka, cigarettes and some treats for the guys plowing the roads and Vova will pay them with that. They all shook my hand and thanked me for the vodka, as they sat around discussing the day and sipping tea. I also got Vova a bottle of Kefir (sour drink,) because that is what Vova drinks after drinking too much Vodka. He said he will pay me back when his pension money gets here. I knew he was out of everything and stocked him with some basics to get by. He also will get whatever we do not eat and what will not keep until I get back…

Svetochka comes tomorrow and I am so happy…

Have a nice day…
