Waking up in the Russian Village…

Sveta and our Village home...

Oh my goodness what a wonderful Thursday morning this was. Sveta had her green tea and I had my chicory. It was so nice to be in the village. We arrived yesterday and as always on the first day it takes forever to get everything in line. You have to go through a reversal pattern of when you leave and get everything going again. The first thing when I get the doors unlocked is to fire up the electricity and get all the essentials going such as refrigerator and such. After we got everything humming smoothly again and it felt like home sweet home. We discovered that a mouse had decided that we had a good place to live and he had a few good meals of tea bags and soap. Of course like my grandma would say, “He don’t eat much!”… 🙂

The second picture is one I caught of Sveta reading a book and enjoying life. I put an inset in the picture. I think Boza is laying next to her and snoozing away. She needs a break after she helped me put a new bench in on our picnic table that we have. That is why the tools are everywhere. Our old bench rotted off in the ground and it was a project that had to be done. Another project that has to be done is the fence that you see in the background of the picture. It is made of just trees and limbs from the forest. It is starting to crumble and we are going to try to salvage the fence this next week…

Tomorrow we will go and have two big propane tanks filled. Propane is what we cook with and we are on our last tank. So it is time. I also am making a list and going to pick up supplies to seal and winterize the home and it is time to be getting some new windows. We have the measurements and it looks like we will try to find them in the near by city. If they do not have them then we will get them in Moscow…

Sveta and I saw a beautiful thing today. We saw three eagles and it looked like it was mom and dad and junior and the adults had the yellow beak and the smaller one had a much darker beak. Sveta tried to get a video of them and we really won’t know how well it came out until later. This picture is of a young eagle. So cool and they were just screaming as they circled. Now we always see lots of hawks here but this is the first time that I have seen eagles and I can tell you that all the water birds were very flighty and nervous until they left. They were simple huge…

That is it for today and as we get more picture in the next few days we will post them and I will keep things updated. The weather is fantastic and the clouds are like big cotton balls in the sky…
