Been Busy in the Tiny Russian Village… (Photos)

The Birdbrain Hotel is doing a fine business!

Every morning I have apple and cherry trees full of birdbrains waiting not so patiently for their buffet! They talk to me when I go out and sit and watch them. They seem to be say, “Hey lazy ass! Get the buffet set up, we are hungry!”

Then when I feed them, they act like a bunch of Russians in Turkey on a vacation! Russians are animals when it comes to a buffet…

I also tossed and image in of the shower house. Might be ugly, but it is sturdy and will make Svetochka a nice place to take a shower next summer. Not now, it is cold and did I say cold? Also about five logs on this pile left to split. The rest you see have a home as bench stumps in various places in the yard. Two go into the shower house with a wide bench seat. This will make a good spot to change clothes and keep stuff on while showering…

Svetochka made me laugh, but please do not tell her that! She wondered if the water would splash and get everything wet in the shower house. I understand where she comes from, for in Moscow, the water pressure is unbelievable and almost like a pressure sprayer. But, in the village it will be gravity fed and will be a gentle water flow. It still made me smile and I laughed later. City girl! That is why I am making more conveniences, just for my SweetPea!

Our T-Rose is still going and going! No, that is not a spider web, that is a floating seed from some plant. Too lazy to remove it!

And yes that last picture is me working, working and working! It is called exercise…
