The Russian Village: Peace and Quiet…

peaceSveta is reading a book, Boza is under the bed and sleeping and I am sipping a cup of  chicory with milk. Russian music is playing in the background, as it waifs in on the breeze from the neighbors place. I hear the intermittent roar of a huge electric motor as they try to fix the water fill station for the lakes and a teenage boy cruises up and down the hill on his motorcycle…

It all signals peace and quiet!

The village has lost more full time people and it looks as though there is only 3 people who live here year around. The village is full now as we are in a holiday and lots of people come to find that peace and quiet, but the village is dying and becoming a summer only place. just like the Russian dachas…

I have a dream to live here full time and I will not give up on that dream. This is one of God’s places. You know that place that we all dream of and just know that god has blessed it. That is the village “Sunshine to Freedom” to me. Why we even have a blessed water source near us and the village is part of an ancient female monastery…

Gods Place: A Blessed Water Source…

Our Village Monastery in Russia – The St. Nicholas Monastery…

I was just outside and saw that the lake is filling up with water and that means the fish farm is coming to life. Last year I fixed Sveta some carp that she really liked. I learned to cook carp from my grandma and since Russians love carp. Well it is a good thing that I like it also… 🙂

So I am going back to peace and quiet and read a book myself. I have been doing some thinking’s as I work on the car and wonder to myself how Sveta and I can live full time in this wonderful place…

Have a great week from the Russian Village called Sunrise to Freedom…
