Each outbuilding like Christmas… TRV

In TRV I have been cleaning the outbuildings. It is amazing how much stuff someone accumulates over many years. Nikolai who owned the home before us had many years to collect and work on things. My collection of tools and supplies has grown to vast proportions and many things such as nails and screws, I will never have to buy replacements…

Therefore, I have been quiet on the blog. For I have been tearing everything from inside an outbuilding and organizing the stuff. From file thirteen to finding a better place to put it. I have been busy…

I now have one main storage building, a main workshop, a usable barn and a auto workshop area. It has not been easy and I am still not done. Yet the light is at the end of the tunnel and it is nice to see that light. Every building opened up and emptied is like opening Christmas presents. Surprise surprise surprise…

Things such as a twelve ton bottle jack, a unbelievable thirty kilo sledge hammer (Try swinging that behemoth!), new windows, new doors, giant buckets of nails and screws to heavy to lift almost, hand tools galore and steel cables of all varieties. That just scratches the surface of what I have been finding…

I have repaired walls and floors as I work and when I put things back in their new home, I organize. I have well worn paths from one building to the other buildings as I move items during the organization. For a few days, I had a huge pile of stuff in the front yard. It all had to be moved after taking the trash away, to the side yard to storage. Windows, doors, bikes and chairs…

My main presents that I am dwelling on are Soviet tools. The quality of these tools are fantastic. Files, hammers, chisels and wrenches. All very old, very Soviet and everything is marked with a Soviet stamping into the metals. I use what I find and find most tools are still very serviceable and it makes me smile…

Made to hand down for generations comes to mind, as I open my gifts and act like a child at Christmas…


I have also been cutting apples and drying them. It is that time of the year and now we will have apples for the winter…

How come I am always in the Tiny Russian Village cutting apples? 😉


I have been following the stupidity of main stream news and found it so stupid that I even decided to clean out sheds. Now how bad is that?


Beirut accident is a bad thing to have happened. Don’t listen to the western news, look around and see what happened for yourself. The west is playing the Oklahoma bombing angle comparison… Why?

Very sad and stored Ammonium nitrate and things like grain storage bins also, can be one hell of an explosion. Like a big big bad boom…

Life can be cut short at anytime and may Beirut get it all under control and settled back down…


Gotta go and get one more coffee….then cut apples, water the plants and start carrying more stuff around the yard. Have a nice day!
