Tiny Russian Village, here we come…

We bought Sveta a pair of valenki with rubber soles and a pair of pants, super well insulated. Those, with her fur coat and two sweaters allowed her to be comfortable all the way to the village. Sammy the Volga has an issue with heat production in really cold weather. I guess I need to fix that issue? For Russia gets really cold.

The village home was frozen and it took several hours of burning wood to get the home warmed up. The lakes are frozen and we saw guys ice fishing as we came in yesterday. Then as we pulled into the village, life became a better place to visit. The air is crisp and clean, the monastery radiated life and you could just feel the re-energizing of your soul. God is truly in this place and it is very obvious…

December will be warm enough in general, that I will be able to get the chainsaw out and at least cut up all those trees brought for firewood. The wood is seasoned oak and I must get a splitting maul this week to start splitting wood with. Looks like enough wood for two years easily. Plenty more where that came from…

Gotta go, Sveta is getting up and I have to cook breakfast. I already took my pills, drank two cups of coffee and time to sit down to eat. Have a nice day and I will be back tomorrow…
