Merry Christmas 2013

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the Holidays!

Yes, we're still alive and well up here in the frigid Far North. It's a balmy -44F today, which I think is a record for our location and is certainly the coldest Christmas since we've been here. The weather this winter has been crazy -- warm and windy then cold and bracing then back again for some more of the up and down. It's kept us on our toes, for sure.

I know we haven't posted in a long while, and truthfully it's because there hasn't really been much to post about. We were kind of de-motivated this year, having spent most of our time and money on repairs/replacements than on anything new or interesting. Not being able to make much progress sort of took some wind out of sails, and seriously triggered my Aspie frustration (i.e. OCD backlash) which left me stressed out and less than communicative.

Meanwhile, we're hoping to have both trucks fixed and all equipment in working order in time for spring chores. Hopefully, we'll also have enough money saved up to get a few new projects started and a bunch of old ones finished this coming year. If the weather cooperates as well, maybe we'll start making progress again and have more to post.

Merry Christmas, I know how you feel. The cold seems to be hanging on here although my temps are -26 to -30. Using a lot of wood.

Glad to hear your still at it. Have a great Christmas! Go into hibernation for a few months and enjoy it. Spring is coming and with it the work. Please don't forget to at least post some winter pics for us.

Thanks for the update, loved hearing about the process, even though it may seem processless to you at times. Hope you have a great New Year. Hang in there.

Happy Holidays! So happy to hear you are both well! I love all tour posts - even the ones that are just about having dinner or being cold! No need for a new project in order for you two to be interesting! Thanks for sharing a bit of your lives with us. Be well.
