Secrets & Showers as a Cabin Dweller – #Alaskan Living #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 22, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living, Books, Cabin Commentary | 2 comments

“Put your name on the list.” she said as she pushed over a dog-eared notebook for me to sign. ” There are four people ahead of you. Do you have preference on which shower you want?” Of course I did, for crying out loud. If you did not get the ones closest to the main hot water heater, you were going to have to deal with the chance of lukewarm water. I already live in enough discomfort having no running water; I really could do without a cold shower.

#Alaskan Mountain Ranges featuring @NorthernHorse Photography #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 21, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living, Books, Photos | 6 comments

It’s been a bit since I posted something fabulous about Alaska. (I also apologize for this being so late in the day still working on recovering from my flesh eating virus… cheese and bananas I tell you!!) .. ANYWAY I was planning on writing a post on Reviewing today but after I saw some of the latest northern light images from a local photographer, Lara Poirrier of Northern Source Images I decided to show of Alaska the best way I know how, with some amazing photographs.

D is for a Dry Cabin… this is how I roll in #Alaska – #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 4, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living | 21 comments

D-is-for-Dry-CabinDid you know that over 40% of the people who live in the Fairbanks and Ester area have no running water? Those that have taps and some heaters also still have to haul it in because they basically just have a water tank and a small water pump with a small heater. It is more convenience than anything but it is better than what I have. We have what technically is called a grey-water cabin because we have a sink which we drain our wash, pasta water etc… into a five-gallon bucket that we dump into a our grey water drainage tank (one of our two tanks, outhouse and grey-water which we have pumped). It is a real cabin too! With logs and everything! Don’t worry I will include photos, but first…. lets talk about being dry!

Late to the Party – My #AtoZChallenge Theme Reveal

Posted by on Mar 27, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living, Books, Cabin Cooking | 7 comments

I know most of the folks did their theme reveal on March 21st for the #AtoZChallenge, but I was still on my blog vacation. Plus I like to make a grand entrance *grin*.  I am sure some of you are still wondering what the heck happened and why were you gone and and and… well I shared most of what I planned on sharing HERE. But in a nutshell, I really needed a break from blogging daily. I had gotten in a horrible rut and was not posting enough original content for my liking, so I took a break, and reorganized my priorities.

Posted by on Jan 8, 2014 in 365Project, Alaska Living, Authors, Bacon, Crafting, Photos, The Finishing Fairies, Wordless Wednesday | 3 comments

We are still working on the inside of this website/database, Cabin Goddess… well.. it is horked. Apparently the website has been chasing the dragon behind all of our backs. Sigh. On top of all of that my own body decided to jump on the bandwagon with the rest of these yahoos here in Alaska and get the Swine Flu. H1N1 SUCKS ASS! So I am throwing a bunch of memes together LOL, Wordless Wednesday, my #OneWord365 of Time and my weekly posting of my #365Project (yes I am still writing on it but since my website is horked and doing drugs I am only going to post something once a week till it is up).

Posted by on Nov 3, 2013 in Alaska Living, Books, Giveaways & Contests, Steampunk, Weekly Shorts | 1 comment

I got a triple present for you today. How about a #WeeklyShorts, since you did gain an hour and you have time to read this! Plus it’s Steampunk, which if you had not noticed I am a wee bit obsessed right now due to me campaigning for and since we are on that for your second treat a couple of steampunk videos from Geoff and I for this campaign so you can laugh at us and also get an idea of what is to come in two weeks… Oh, and A KINDLE FIRE HDX GIVEAWAY (I had to throw that on, why? BECAUSE EVERYONE should have one of these, I love mine!). I know I am being obnoxious lately but man, I am just in a festive mood and I want to share!
