It’s April in Alaska..
Which means the A to Z Challenge on Cabin Goddess and the Arctic Man for the rest of the state. What do they have in common you ask? Well a lot of things! This is about X-treme as it gets, people!! And for an added bonus, I have my famous ALASKAN BELLY FLOP drink recipe that you can make to reward yourself for a job well done!
Sometimes you cannot stay huddled under blankets when it is -4oºF (or colder) outside here in the Interior of Alaska. Sometimes we have to break free of those frozen shackles and have a little fun! Sometimes you just need a shower and fast food because lets face it, as much as I love to cook, even I need a break!
In my earlier post I talked about more general aspects cold weather front in Fairbanks, AK I talked about how crazy the weather can get here. I had been stuck inside being forced to take a bath in the Rubbermaid© tub and wash my hair in the sink. Usually I have a walk or I cross-country ski on the snow-machine trails to avoid cabin fever, but with the dangerous steady temps of -4oºF (or colder) there was no having a nice healthy walk. I let the dishes pile up, stayed snuggled in my Christmas PJ’s and wool socks, whining to Geoff about how I needed to get out, well he surprised me on Monday and said it is going to a cold one, but a fun one! I hope so because if the car needs a blanket, I am thinking maybe I need to stay under mine!
