Yesterday, made a major dent in my boxes, emptied several and moved more off the stacks down to a workable level for the next day I tackle this. Crazy how they packed me out and so far nothing is broken. But gads my muscles are screaming today… so no work today.

Had an appointment with my accountant today due to IRS mailing that scared the sh_t out of me….. so it got me out of the apartment. Good thing, it was gorgeous outside!!! 41ºF felt like 50’s with all that sunshine. Or am I just re-acclimated? A bit of both, I think. I only had a sweatshirt, jeans, Muck boots, and a raincoat on. Being carless has many attributes that I’m growing fond of. In my younger adult life, I was an avid hiker, backpacker, rock climber… lots was side-lined with surgeries, travel, and life in general but the simple truth – I got away from it.

I was talking with friends up in my old neck of the woods – up in Matanuska Valley, near Palmer, Alaska. They have had very little snow, altho it has gotten cold for them. My friend Connie said it was down to 18º when I had called. Interesting enough, or at least to me anyway, Haines has not had a hard freeze yet. Oh its gotten down into the low 30’s a few times and the present daytime temps aren’t changing much. Where’s winter?
