I am thoroughly enjoying the weather this past week or so. The temperature has been in the twenties during the day and then drops down to the single digits during the night. We have only gotten a little more snow this past week, so for the most part, the roads are in good condition. The parking lots are a bit slippery, however.
Tomorrow we will see 9 hours of daylight again! Yeah! This morning the sun rose at 8:52 a.m. and sat at 5:47 p.m. Tomorrow’s sunrise will be at 8:49 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:50 p.m. There is a chance of snow for tomorrow and for the rest of the week, but maybe it will be just a light flurry. The state’s high temperature for yesterday was 43 degrees at Annette and the low temperature was -35 degrees at Beaver. That is a temperature variation of 78 degrees.
The Iron Dog Race is currently going on for this 2,000 mile race of snow machines. My son-in-law’s good friend is one of them racing and usually does quite well. Another rider is the “First Dude” aka known as the husband of our new governor. He is another one who also does very well each year. This year they will travel from just above Wasilla to Nome and then on to Fairbanks. As long as this race is, they will still be primarily in the interior of Alaska.
I have been spending a lot of time combining the proper foods for the animals. The parrots are enjoying their birdie bread and sprouted grains with soaked beans combined with a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and topped with a fig and a couple nuts. The dogs really enjoy the fresh meats, especially the turkey legs or beef ribs. Occasionally they also get some of our good leftovers, too. The puppy thinks she has to eat some of my fruit such as a banana or apple in addition. The cat still thinks anything that isn’t kibble must be poison so she is staying quite plump and somewhat irritated with me for attempting to give her something more nutritious and certainly more natural.
Next week I am going to start a 3 ½ month long course on homeopathy. I am really looking forward to it as I have used many homeopathic remedies over the years very successfully. Now I want to understand it a bit better. I am also taking an herbology course. Alternative medicine has always intrigued me. I think that is partially why I so enjoy the EFT and studying all I can about nutrition. It seems that a good part of what I do is connected to health and healing.
My jewelry designing has slowed down a bit as the bursitis and the trigger finger make it a bit more difficult, but it hasn’t stopped me yet. I still get a thrill when something I create is sold. The stones I buy are chosen with a great deal of care. Putting the earrings or necklaces together takes quite a bit of time trying to come up with the design that will show the beads off to their best. I enjoy being able to be so creative.
Two very different areas of interest. I am not sure how they relate to each other yet each give me a lot of satisfaction. Then again, so does helping in the community. I have never been satisfied just doing or learning one thing at a time. Even though I have gotten older, there is still much to be learned and mastered or enjoyed. Boredom is just not my thing.
Well, this is it for tonight. Hope your week was a good one. Until next time…………..
