I am out of here… another Great Adventure awaits!
Friends, Mums the word. I haven’t told my boss yet…I am leaving Alaska! Yes, I have decided to leave Alaska for a place where the air doesn’t hurt your face half the year, and mosquitoes keep you indoors the rest. The first time I started blogging was in 2018 when I moved to Alaska for…
After two days of dealing with the DMV and I had to take two ‘mental health days’ off of work!
The last two days of my life have been painful. Painful in the sense that I have spent a total of 8 hours at the DMV between the two days. Let me paint the scene for you. Back in December 2021, after months of begging my Jeep for a working partnership between the two of…
The joys and agony of owning a home! A tale of a $100,000 bill.
Friends, It is that time of year when those who live in a ‘wintery’ area are bored and anxious for spring. In other words, we are changing the whole house. New paint, rearranging the furniture, staring listlessly out the window, or ignoring TicTok videos to search for a new home in places like Hawaii or…
Intentional interactions through books and gardens
Someone asked me what my ‘real goal’ for 2022 is, it took 7 weeks to figure it out… intentional interactions is the name of the game this year!
New Years Resolution for 2022? Finish what I started in 2020.
The last day of the year! We have made it another 365 days! Looking back, 365 days flew by quickly. So what did I do for 365 days? I joined a gym in November. However, I haven’t been there in a week because of the holidays and a winter storm. Let’s be realistic- I didn’t…
The Christmas season is done, and it has left me wanting.
Christmas is done and over with; what a relief. What a disappointment. This Christmas season was a whirlwind of coordination, logistics, and responding to people’s needs, wants, and desires- all in the name of the spirit of Christmas. That is what the season is about, right? Giving without receiving; sharing without asking; responding without requesting.…
It takes a Village! Supporting the lifeline of Alaska!
Why do I love my job? Great question! It is currently 4:00 a.m. in Alaska. I have carefully planned my morning to have at least 20 minutes to write before I need to load my car up and get ready to head to the gas station, grocery store, and the local coffee shop in preparation…
Its that time of year in Alaska. Fall is officially here!
The weather has changed here in Alaska. 2 weeks ago, half the city was walking around like dehydrated red lobsters, trying to tell ourselves that we LOVE 90-degree weather. We don’t love 90-degree weather! We don’t move to Alaska to bake in the rays of the golden sun. We move to Alaska because after one…
Meet Morris the Moose- the Alaskan Standoff!
This is my friend Morris. Morris the Moose. I meet him while traveling to a remote lake in the Interior of Alaska. How remote? The directions are coordinates- Latitude: 62.281264, Longitude: -146.556511. Or, if you ask the locals, go 42 miles past Delta Junction and look for a bent tree next to an old mailbox…
Fall in Alaska is celebrating life and death at the same time.
After another grueling day of phone calls and problem-solving, I went for my daily walk this afternoon. Today was the day that, with everyone’s positive encounter, there was another tugging at my heartstrings. I needed to recharge and refresh my energy. I walk to think about my book, argue ideas, and spy on my neighbor’s…
