    Thanks everyone for your advice! LOL, taking the oil and the battery out every night, hmmmmmm nah, I don't think so!
    Anyways, the no electricity is only for a month, then I move into my own cabin. Yay, I can't wait, dog sitting is exhausting especially with a puppy who wants out 2 times in the middle of the night!!!

    It has been freezing these last two nights, down to 25 degrees!

    The ground crunches when I walk, and who would have known that leaves can make such a racket falling down when they are frozen solid?? It sounded like a bear was walking through the bushes. :lol3
    I am really enjoying the cold so far, trying to toughen myself up by walking in 30 degree weather with only an under shirt and a polar fleece sweat shirt. so far I seem okay.
    They just called me in for work again, I don't seem to get a day off!! I don't mind as I really need the money.
    Till later

    The little path to my car. Luckily it's only a three minute walk.

    Yikes! looks like the roof caved in!!
    Glad the snow here in Fairbanks is dry and powdery, not so heavy.
    Today I ran out of Ray's soap! I used it sparingly cause it smelled so good. The chocolate covered raisins weren't as lucky!! :lol3

    Another week has gone by, and I'm looking forward to a day off tomorrow. I'm thinking of not answering the phone if work calls! The Toyota had one teensy problem, the mechanic said that the engine was about to blow. Needless to say I didn't buy it.
    Tuesday I'll go looking at an old dodge. I think I can finally afford to buy a junk car on Friday as I get another paycheck.

    Just had to post a pic of this outhouse with a view :D

    Found another walking path

    I've been staying in this little camper for a few days while the owner of the house is back.
    Tomorrow she leaves for another three weeks, so I'll have the house back.

    It's looking like I have a full class on October first, I'm excited, my first adult cake decorating class.
    I hope they like it enough to take course 2, 3 an 4 as well.

    Today has been snowing non stop, but supposedly it wont last and the rains will start mid week.
    Right now it is about 25 degrees, and I am walking outside in a thin blouse and a polarfleece sweatshirt.
    I'm getting tough :lol3

    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! :lol3

    Tough in other ways though, you're right. :D

    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!!:clap

    >"behind is getting used to the temperature when using the outhouse"

    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 ?
