Last Days at the Farm & Nikola Slava
August 29th, 2010 by ron

We had another busy but great week.  Ron spent most of his time at the farm.  He would leave for the farm in the morning and return at 9:00 each night.  It took every day to get the job done. 

#1.  Nikola Kovic, Bro. Vasica, and Ron at the flea market,  purchasing animals for the farm.

#2.  You can find nearly anything you would want at the flea market.

#3.  “

#4.  Some people bring their goods to market in horse drawn wagons.

#5.  A very old antique fire wagon. 

#6.  Palacinka’s (crepes) on the griddle.

#7.  Delivery of our 3 lambs and 2 goats.

#8.  Milka, the goat in the foreground,  is our goat that needs to be milked.  Thus her name!!!!!!

#9.  Goran at the farm.  The barn is nearly ready.

#10.  Inside the chicken coop—Ron made the laying box for the chickens to lay their eggs and the cute little ramp to get there.  The chickens laid 10 eggs the first day.

#11.  Everyone is so happy to finally get the animals.  They still have a few boards to nail up near the ceiling and they will get it done!

#12.  On Saturday afternoon we went to Nikola Stan’s family Slava.  It is a religious celebration where they honor their family saint.  It is kind of like Thanksgiving.  It is all about the food!  The first thing that they serve is boiled wheat (whole grain) that is sweetened and formed into a large ball.  Nikola’s mother walked around the table and served each person individually.

#13.  Ron’s turn!

#14.  She prepared such a lovely meal and it was delicious!

#15.  This is Slava Bread.  They serve it at every slava and it is homemade.  They pass it around and you tear off a hunk and eat it!  She did a good job of decorating it.

#16.  Nikola, Ron, me and Nikola’s mom and dad—Mira and Dusan Stan.  THANK YOU  to them for being so gracious and kind to us!
