So, the month of April's challenge is blogging from A-Z and today begins with the letter A.
For those of you who know a little something about me, I live in Alaska. I. Have an awesome view. Every. Day. Don't believe me? I will show you.
So Alaska. No, I can't wave to Russia from my back porch. I don't know Sarah Palin. I do not own pet penguins. (I wish! How cool would that be?) Polar bears do not drink my Coca-Cola. I certainly
do not participate in the Iditarod. Kudos to those who do!
I've lived here for 4 years. Alaska, to me, is a whole different world, bub. Seriously. We work all winter so we can play all summer. We fish, we hike, we … uh … clam dig. Type. Stuff. Yes. The beach is my home away from home in the summer. We have seasons! (Unlike when I lived in Arizona. Hey! Another 'A'!)
This winter proved to be a little challenging for my family. I mean, dude! I used a sled to bring my groceries from my mini-van to the house! Erm. Long driveway. With a hill. Need I say more? Half the time I had to have my van pushed up the hill to get out, so I parked it up top.
I so need to invest in a snow blower. (Insert heavy sigh here.)
However, I would not trade living here for anywhere else. If anything, I will become a dreaded “Snow Bird”. ::Shudders:: Oh. And Sesame Street? Yeah, it is about halfway to Soldotna. Told you I knew where it was! And this concludes my blog for the letter A. For Alaska. :D
