Wild Strawberries are almost here…

Boza and I check on the strawberry fields daily now. In a few days I will be able to start picking strawberries and I will be ahead of the rest of the crowd. People sneak around and try to steal all the berries near this village and they try to sell them. I will eat them, for they are good for my health and I am in the village to get healthy. They shoot horse strawberry thieves don’t they?

Our currant is the best I have ever seen. I am watering daily and it shows. Currant is my favorite berry and nothing is better when they have milk poured over them…

The onions are starting to bulb out and the beets are doing the same. Sixteen carrots is all I see growing and tomorrow, I will try to find some garlic bulbs. Watering the garden twice a day now, for it is getting hot at the peak of the day and our soil is super sandy here. The whole village is on an old desert of sand dunes…

Those purple flowers are so beautiful and a pure white moth is so cool…

While sipping a cup of coffee this morning, I was looking at a picture Sveta sent me. She bought a bike and it is beautiful…

She has big plans to ride a bunch and get in shape. I even suspect that she may take a trip on the bike. I know her very well and I sense that she wants to travel for several weeks on a bike trip. I hope she does and I hope she is happy doing that. Nice bike, I want one, but only a single speed to get to the medium size village and back. That is about 4 kilometers, actually that would be easy to walk, because Boza and I walk much farther than that everyday now. So really I do not need a bike…

Tomorrow I am taking the weekly trip to the Big Village. I pick up four dog foods every Tuesday and restock my foods staples. I am going to stock big bottles of water and drink more. I am not drinking enough and I have to solve that issue. I like drinking from big glasses and Russian just do not have big glasses to drink from, so I improvised. The image to the right is my new water glass…

IMG0661ASveta bought it thinking that I would use it to store fluid in the refrigerator. I found a better use for it, a drinking glass for a big bear. It is hot and I need lots of fluids, now during the winter, it will be great for keeping cold water and juice. I bet Sveta is shaking her head at the sight of what I use that pitcher for… 🙂

You see my coffee cup and my water cup…

Time to get other things done, but I have a last thought. It is a thought about people from the USA. I feel sorry for them, they find Windows to Russia and then they either try to befriend, but all of a sudden they realize that to befriend something about Russia, puts them in a terrible way back hone in America…

Everyone, whether they will admit it out loud, understands that they live in a society of being spied on and repercussions will and have happened. Some do not care and they still talk to me and they understand that they are marked, for they were marked as soon as they decided to surf the net and find alternate life in media…

Windows to Russia has people from all over the world who come here and comment. They communicate with me and they enjoy the communications. But, people from America are scared to death of getting in trouble and the second they realize that they have put themselves in possible black listing by NSA, they run and whimper and cry. It really is very – very sad and very – very wrong…

Happened three times last week…

Have a nice day, for Boza and I sure will…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
