Today we have power and internet! It’s a miracle! Tomorrow there will be water!
We are one step closer to moving into the main house. Tomorrow Dad is going back to Kenai to pick up our wood burning stove, water heater, propane wall heater, and a few odds and ends we forgot to get yesterday. It’s happening people!
I can’t wait to take a real and free shower I might add tomorrow! Real showers cost $7.50 for 30 min. I was able to manage the time although I had to skip shaving just to blow dry my hair. Ain’t no thang but a chicken wang! The water people will be here sometime tomorrow and fill our big tank up and Dad’s gonna connect it to the camper temporary.
We should be moving into the house at this point in about four days! I miss my bed and privacy. All that I have now is a curtain for privacy, soon it will be a whole floor! My bedroom has breathtaking views of the mountains, glaciers, and the bay! I get to wake to that view every morning. My room has an oversized bench that I can add cushions on it and sit up against one of the large windows and be able to read and enjoy moose crossing the property.
I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be able to move here to Alaska. It’s always been a dream of mine and now it’s a reality. Follow your dreams everyone if you believe and work hard they will come true!

It is amusing to think that enjoying your own shower whenever you want to would be such a big deal. I lived 14 years in a remote cabin and reveled every time I went to town and was able to shower… who would have thought the simplest things in life could bring so much pleasure.
Welcome and congratulations on your move.
Thank you. So happy too be here in Alaska
