Vasiliy Ivanovich is a former miner. Now he lives in the countryside and really enjoys his lifestyle. He can’t imagine himself without everyday labor. Let’s spend the whole day with him and see what he usually does.
In the morning he drinks coffee and watches the news. He says that his kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. He has a stove, a refrigerator and a TV set. Everything is made with his own hands.
Tosha sometimes comes to Vasiliy’s place to have a meal. Actually, it’s not only Vasiliy who considers himself the cat’s master but also the owners of the 20 nearest houses. The sly cat enters all the houses one by one and cleans out the given bowls with food. In winter, though, he mostly hangs out in Vasiliy’s house.
Which inside is very like a city flat. Here is a toilet and a shower cubicle.
This is not a hooch still as you might have probably thought at first. This is the stove which is actively used in winter.
Vasiliy’s favorite ladder.
A porch where Vasiliy smokes.
Dina, his dog.
Not to get under the master’s feet, the dog is driven into the open-air cage.
And his bathhouse.
This is Vasiliy’s work for today.
But before, he decides to check the beds in the garden.
Nothing has grown yet.
Several tomatoes from the greenhouse. Not much…
Now it’s time for work. First of all, it’s necessary to figure everything out…
And prepare all the tools and materials.
Suddenly, a neighbor comes. A smoking break.
Vasiliy’s relative from Saratov helps him.
Then Vasiliy’s wife says that she won’t photograph him anymore until he’s in his terrible shorts. Vasiliy changes them and goes to the store.
By bike certainly.
Eggs and beers are brought safe and sound.
A happy moment!
Ripe and tasty cherries.
But let’s return to work.
The finished house looks like a toy.
It’s time for dinner.
And having rest.
But even now many things have left to be done.
To cut firewood.
And to clean the garage.
Friends (former miners) came.
All together roast the meat.
Then sit down at the table.
And enjoy themselves.
A busy day and a warm meeting with the friends exhausted Vasiliy, he went to bed and saw a wonderful dream…
