Finally the heat has broken… (TRV)

For Russians it has been hot in our area. But yesterday, the heat broke, rain fell and today will be 10 degrees C. cooler….that is from around a high of 95 F. to  now 77 F. difference. Basically 20 degrees F. cooler. Big difference for us peasants with no air conditioning…

It got bad enough that Svetochka found out her mom’s fan died and we had an extra at our Moscow home….she sent it by Yandex Taxi and her mom had a different quality of life…

You know it is serious when a hard core Soviet Russian accepts a fan or ventilator (вентилятор) as Russians call it…


Moscow got proverbially flooded with rain storms, no such thing as true storm drainage in Russia….so Moscow flooded…


I spent a bunch of time staying in front of our fan and reading in the Tiny Russian Village. Maybe today I can see if things dry enough and can mow? But I had a bad night due to all the weather changes and we will see…


The sunflowers all made it through the storms. I tied them up, like I did with the potatoes last year. Of course I hugged them all while the lightning flashed and the winds blew and thunder boomed and rain torrented down to beat the band… 😉

Gonna be something else when they bloom…


I am serious and besides I need my coffee. It is not very likely that I will not drink just two cups of coffee today. Okay, it is certain I will drink three today…

Right now I am just enjoying the cool breeze and fresh air in the Tiny Russian Village…

Just don’t wanna think about doing anything at all…

Guess I will drink a third cup of Java this morning?
