I must admit, I am suffering from cabin fever or it could be Socialization Problems. I haven't figured it out yet but, I am betting on the latter. To tell the truth I really didn't get cabin fever when I was remote and I had more friends and visitors out there than here on the road system. I really don't care to travel much on the roads here and driving on them is an experience in itself. I know only a handful of people here and the problem is, I am to far for them to travel and mostly they live in Anchorage and I will not go there. I have come to the conclusion, I am really out of my element here. I made myself a promise that by the end of this summer, my living arrangements will be different whether it is at my remote property or some other remote place. I may rent out my town cabin by the month or by the day, not sure which but, am leaning towards the latter as that would give me a place to stay when and if I come to town. I am looking at a cabin on the Kuskokwim River by McGrath but, not sure yet.
I know I haven't posted pictures lately do to either laziness or forgetfulness or a combination of both. The weather here has been real different from last year. We have a combination of snow/rain, warm/cold. It has been really crazy. I do have some pics to show this time. On the cold nights it has been:
and the warm days: Talk about extreme
The snow, although it hasn't been a lot. It has been frequent making me shovel more.
Then, there was the ice building up on the edges of my roof. That was a job removing the ice. The ice was about 8" to 10" in thickness.
Plus, shoveling the snow off the roof gave me a lot of exercise.
After all that work, I got real hungry and there is nothing better to remedy a hungry guy or gal than soup. During the Winter, soup is my favorite meal whether for lunch or dinner and I have been known to have it for breakfast a time or two. THE SOUP, sausage, elbow macaroni, corn, cut green beans, pinto beans, parsley,onions and diced tomatoes.
Mmmmm! So good
I got a dog sled that I traded for my wood stove. This is a sled made by Joe May a famous musher from Trapper Creek. I really like it a lot.
I have mentioned that I was doing more inside work and I would post pictures when done. It's not done but, have decided to give you an idea. I painted my walls and it needs a final coat.
Pictures with the flash.
As you can see, it makes the cabin much brighter at night. The color is kind of a cream color.
Sorry about the blurriness, hadn't checked it. I like it a lot. Makes the nights a lot better. So, that's pretty much what has been going on. The days are getting longer a little bit at a time which is welcomed. Anyway, hope this entertains everyone for awhile. Take care
