Sunday in the Zdravich Barn
It was a typical Sunday at the Zdravich's. We were out cleaning the barn, with Serbian music blasting, and all of us were there: the two horses, Zora & Divna; the two goats, Marco & Misho; the two cats, Simo & Sonya, and of course, the six chickens (all unnamed, except one, Zlata -- they all look just alike, except for her, so names were futile). We had beers, and rakija (Serbian "moonshine") to keep us warm, and we made an event out of it, as always. Spoiling the critters with treats, watching the goats play and bump each other in the head, it was just a great evening! This ritual happens quite frequently on Sundays here, and it always puts the head in a good place to face the work-week ahead. God, I love my life!!!
