We decided to grow an Avocado Tree…

I started it as an experience before I left for the Tiny Russian Village. Sveta took over the care and she did a great job. I transplanted it. I bought a fresh new pot and potting soil and now we have an Avocado Tree growing…

I think Sveta did a wonderful job of taking care of our new baby…

On my walk in Korolyov, Russia…

I love to walk in the morning, after getting Svetochka on to the train to Moscow…

I inevitably pass by a huge bakery that produces bread fresh daily, actually 24 hours a day and in the morning the smell of cinnamon rolls is overwhelming….the image is of just the storefront and the bakery is about two or even three blocks long and the same deep…

хлеб – (khleb) is bread… Look at the sign above the door of the green entrance in the image below…

I swear that just walking by and breathing the fresh baked odors wafting in the air is enough to gain a kilo, as you walk by…

Thus, I have to walk faster and farther just to work off the smell of those cinnamon rolls…

Regardless, I have to stand there and breath for a minute. They are truly heavenly…
