Rainy-rainy Portland. Not much to do about wetness. We have been scheduling social events with my friends around the rain schedule. Works. Except it gets cold after 5 pm so we are all like cabbages with many many layers of clothing to keep us warm. Worth it though as I am starved for an adult human interaction after spending all…

There are only 3 days of 2020 left. Good riddance I say. However, despite being a horrific year for everyone I actually personally did not experience much hardship except for the fear of getting COVID. I am immunocompromised so that would be a piece of very bad news indeed. In many respects, COVID was made for me. I am a…

Wanted to post something because it is 20/20. My dog nowadays won’t go outside until I give him a full body massage. I don’t know where it came from. Maybe he had a conversation with one of the dogs he played with on a grassy field and here it is. I am being held hostage because it is not like…

It is Mid-December. The holiday break is coming up next Monday and I am looking forward to two weeks of not checking my email. The computer will be shut and not accessed except for checking on Etsy and to write on this blog. It has been a tough semester full of working on weekends a substantial amount of time. Additionally,…

My sister got COVID. She is on the mend now. It is unbelievable because you never think it can happen to you or your family. Yet here it is, happening. She probably got it from her co-workers. No one wears masks there in the rural forgotten and forsaken little town in Belorussia located downstream from Chernobyl.  All of them probably…

It’s December and I cannot believe it is here already. The Christmas decorations are everywhere on the streets of Hillsboro. The inflated Santas greet us when we walk neighborhoods. I am a person who installs the Christmas tree and decorates it the night before Christmas. It is a leftover tradition of living in the Soviet Union where instead of Christmas…

Ten more days left of November. Time tends to fly the older you get. I’ve been working on drawings a lot lately. They are coming along nicely. Being on ETSY and selling some gives me extra motivation. If anyone reading this and would like to check them out: HTTP://etsy.com/shop/ghost4boris. It is nice to know that someone else likes your art.…

Insomnia. It’s been a couple of weeks since I was able to suspend myself into the sweet honey of dreams. I don’t know what happened. Nothing has changed in my routine. But nevertheless, here we are, not sleeping. The upside of insomnia is reading. After all, you have an entire night to kill. That’s a lot of hours. We don’t…

It is the end of October and the temperature is still in the 60’s. It is crazy. I hope that winter will appear sometime and make me happy with a little frost in the mornings. We went to a field this morning and somehow spent 3.5 hours there. Time flew as there were a lot of people and other beasties…
