Change, will it work?

 Hi everyone, I know it's been awhile, probably to long.  Seems I have gotten lazy and just not into blogging much. Before I get into the actual blog message, I will show you what I have accomplished.

My old roof

I put new roof paper on

Then, the new roof

It needs some trimming and adjusting, started raining so, couldn't get it done.

It was time for the tarp to come off.

  I have been spending a lot of time doing a lot of thinking. I think a lot about a relationship and it's importance. I have lived a very good life and had tons of fun, seen and done many things that most people have never or never will experience.  The more I think about it, having someone at this time in my life is very important because, I don't want to leave this world lonely. I like and enjoy having a remote cabin and it brings me joy and peace. But, the more I think about it, if I am feeling lonely staying in my town cabin, you can imagine what it's like being remote where nobody is around.
  I am toying with the idea of relocating out of Alaska and find either remote or very rural property somewhere in the lower 48. I believe it would be better to find someone who would compliment my life easier. I have been doing a lot of searching for property for about 3 weeks now. I have been looking in N. Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and I have actually looked at the Adirondacks in Upstate NY. I am looking at places that have four seasons. I dream about enjoying Summer nights under the stars, longer days in the Winter, "NO MOSQUITOES", LOL. I want to hear Crickets and Frogs, I want to see more different species of birds, I want to see lightening and hear thunder. There is so much to experience and these things I haven't.
  I figure on selling or trading either one or both of my properties or maybe keep the town cabin to come back now and then or if this new adventure doesn't work out for me. I know some of you will not agree with me on this subject but, I feel my happiness of having someone to enjoy what time is left on this Earth is more important.
  I bet none of you saw this coming, to tell the truth, I didn't either. I've lived a Mountain Man life in my younger days, maybe I will become a cowboy, lol. Any gals out there living rural, remote or on a homestead, I'm available. I really hope all of you who have stuck by me on this blog will continue. Thanks everyone

Not much happening

 Well, not a whole lot happening, it's been raining on and off quite heavily. I picked the strawberries that were ripe last night and ate them. They were sweet and juicy. I pick a cucumber off the vine and sliced it up also. It sure was good.

My tomatoes are really driving me nuts.

The plant on the left is my Early Girl and loaded with tomatoes.

The other is my Roma tomato plant and has only one tomato the size of an Acorn. I planted them at the same time.

It is very strange. Anyway, this was dinner last night. NY Strip with fried potatoes topped with salt, pepper and flaked parmesan cheese. It was great.

Sorry but, there just isn't a whole lot going on right now. I did go over to my neighbors and cut the rest of the trees he wanted down so he can have Internet. The mosquitoes were really bad, even with repellent on.
  I will close for now and hope you all understand. Take care.
