January 2009 A New Year Starts

The Brits joining in Baba Den Evening.

A January Full Moon

Here we are at the start of a New Year 2009 thoughts go to where this year will take us. We have been lucky this Winter it has been mild in temperature and the snows were only small compared with last year. Also they did not last so long. maybe there will be more to come who knows? We have enjoyed this Winter as we have things all in place and got it right this year. The logs were dry having had all year to dry out. This meant we got a better burn from them and they produced much more heat. Our store cupboard was full and so were the freezers and we still have plenty of food so no need to shop for some time. We still watch look and listen to our Bulgarian neighbours and the learning never stops. The ladies of the village celebrated Baba Den which in English terms would mean Grandmother Day. We all went on the coach to the local restaurant, we played games, danced and sang just the ladies no men allowed. We had a great time and made our way back to the village well after midnight. The time has come to start thinking about planting for this years crops. Planning is vital again we are more prepared this year. We at Rock House wish you all a Happy and Peaceful New Year. See you in February.
