I don't have a question, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your blog! I lived in Anchorage for a year, fell in love with Alaska, and now I have a longing to experience life above the arctic circle. Thankfully I can experience it vicariously by reading your blog (and Tundra Chick, and Finnskimo)! Perhaps someday I will experience it first hand, but until then, Thank you!
glad you enjoy the blog! i have fun posting, but lately my internet at home has been very, very slow, so i haven’t been posting.
tell your friends about eskimo power. at my buddy’s house and he’s got fast internet.
come up and visit us in kotzebue! have a good one.
Once day when this life has passed me by and I await my entrance into the afterlife - there will be a gathering of loved ones on a little hill outside of Minto waiting for the caravan of vehicles to bring me home.
They will have song and dance and food for everyone. People will rejoice on the life I had lived and pray that I have a peaceful rest.
I will join all my friends and family on another hill outside of Minto for eternity.
february 2010--heavy heart, stove oil thief, love and family
my internet at home has been very slow, so i haven’t been posting much lately. for that, i apologize. i know some readers come from afar. here’s to you in sweden, irnia, among others! huw in england! here’s my official shout out! haha
i’m at home today, nursing a flu. i went to work yesterday for a few hours in the afternoon. i felt fine when i awoke, but as the day progressed, i felt weaker and weaker. went home at three and stayed in bed for the rest of the day. no energy, just sick, and it really sucks to be sick.
anyways, i wanted to write in my blog, as slow as this internet has been lately. i’m feeling a little sentimental today for some reason. i have feelings of love and family today.
earlier this week, i found out that someone has been stealing stove oil from us. i noticed a ‘sled trail’ going from the road to our stove oil tank—my heart has been heavy and i’ve been angry, thinking about the ‘stove oil thief’ and what i would do if i caught him. or her. i need to let go of the anger and fill my heart with love. i can be angry all weekend, all month, but that’s not going to do me or my family any good.
fill my heart with love. that’s what i will do. i will not shoot the stove oil thief. i will just give him a good ass-kicking. haha
our toyostove has been acting up since the stove oil thief hit. the stove shuts off and goes to ‘ee6.’ its been acting up. hope my friend ess can come over and clean out the itty bitty filter tonight.
i was wanting to fly to bethel and visit my family, but i’m worried about the stove quitting on us, house freezing, thief going bump in the night. we’ll see how things go in the next few days.
i miss my family. i’d like home and eat some good yugtaq food, see my many little nieces, shake the hands of my growing nephews, maybe take a maqi. home sweet home. some day i will go home to the yk delta.
