Right now it is about 25 degrees, and I am walking outside in a thin blouse and a polarfleece sweatshirt.

I've got the feeling you were born tough.

Yes they were!! :P
My behind is getting used to the temperature when using the outhouse, which really should be called the open outside toilet house. LOL. I have a nice open view when doing my business!

Tough in other ways though, you're right.

This seems like the style you're interested in though maybe a bit too crowded!

Yes I did, just a couple of days ago, I tucked her in a little better. Her tarp was blown a little off her.
I really miss her, but I didn't want to spend the money on a new battery if I'm to save up for a car.
Still looking, but at least now I have $500, Yippeee!
Work is actually pretty cool, I'm not going crazy yet. I start another Wilton class on Tuesday, this time a full class, so a big bonus!!

At cold temperatures... beware, you'll stick to the seat.
Like the kid sticking his tounge to the flagpole in the movie.

How's the day length in Faribanks? 9am to 3pm ?

Spirit

I don't want to go back and read (lazy), but did you drain the gas out of Spirit's carb for winter prep?

I like this new part of your blogging career. I've often wondered about what goes on in a long winter up there.

Throw some Starbrite StarTron in there, run her a bit and enjoy a problem free carb and fuel for a looong time!

Can't stick, it's insulating foam!
