I’m not talking weather folks… Its been a roller coaster of a week tho.
I have been working hard on my storage unit. With the beautiful non-rainy days, I have utilized this on my task, as it has allowed me to pull things outside, rearrange, and on some boxes repack – which allows me to rid the storage of more boxes. Its a monumental job but someone has to do it. Yesterday, it was sheer excitement when I found my Baby Wolf, a floor loom – that will go into my rig. I can’t reach it yet, but I can see it. And right on top of that is my sewing machine. This really jazzed the heck out me and as it turned out was the most positive thing to cling to yesterday.
You see, I have spent the better part of the week signing papers for selling our house in Palmer. Yippee! We have a buyer. Alas, it was no easy task from afar. I need to find printer to print so I can sign them to fax. It was trying to print that was my downfall or so I thought. I have a printer – but the cord is in storage somewhere. Could I find a printer anywhere in town? Everyone was having a bad printer day. Then…. I found a printer – if I wanted to pay for it ($6 to print each page off of a memory stick – outrageous!!!). Then to fax the data. Except I refuse to fax all 27 pages of documents. So I then scanned the data and tried to email it – too big of a file. Back to square one, but I finally got it done. And then yesterday, the buyers reneged on the contract. Total bummer of a deal.
If I don’t find that cord for my wireless printer I will be ticked. So may have to breakdown and buy a new one. Grrrrrr…
Also this week, I’m getting oriented to my new Camp Host job and my pay is a significant reduction of parking here – about $12/day vs summer rates of $40/day. Wow! I have less then one week until the 1st of many summer events happens.. its already filling up, but I guess there is a big bike race happening – which will bring in tenters as well as more rigs. So I have learned how they do reservations, learning how to park another RV, costs, cleaning shower and bathroom (only one of each), rules, ferry schedules (brings all kinds of business). Etc. etc. etc.
Its going to be one busy, busy summer. But am enjoying myself immensely – have been watching Blue Herons, hundreds of Scoters, eagles and of course ravens of the feather line of activity. The herring is in, which has brought whales in… sea lions are here as well. Its a delight to be here.
Must quit – am meeting friends at Mountain Market for a mocha and chat. Outstanding store here in Haines. All the seasonal restaurants are now open and boom we have gone from Winter to Summer in a blink of the eye. No Spring this year.
