I'm Moving to Alaska!

I'm Moving To Alaska

That's right folks, I'm moving to Alaska. I think I've threatened to do it every summer for the last *several* years, and I'm finally gonna do it!





For all my followers who love summer, just know that I am not among you summer lovin' people. I dislike summer, it has to be my least favorite part of the year. In fact, now that I come to think of it, I dread it. There, it's out in public..and I care not who knows it.

So I think I'll be buying a summer house in Alaska, where I'll be living during the summer months. Yep, so while all you poor people are down here sweating like crazy and drinking ice tea like it's going out of style, I'll be up in my little wood cabin sipping on a cup of hot tea, cuddled up in a warm blanket, looking out the window as the snow-flakes fall, and pile up outside.


But, seriously peoples, I really do not like hot weather. I do not thrive in hot weather! I was not made to live in a hot, dry...also known as a desert. It just wasn't meant to be! I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be living in the woods somewhere in the snow-capped mountains...of NEW ZEALAND! Yes, yes, that must be it. Forget Alaska.....New Zealand is the place for this girl.


I don't know about you folks, but when it's 200F + outside my creativity crashes...and dies. I have no desire to do anything but lounge in a pool, or lay in a completely AC'd room and read a good book..and research Alaska. *ahem* 
  


All of this is coming from a girl, who's dream is to live on a completely self-sufficient homestead...oh dear, how am I going to survive? 

Since I can't move to a colder climate....yet...I'll just lay here hot, tired, irritated, grouchy, whilst I drink gallons of water kefir.


So, my beloved followers, what say you? Summer or winter?

  3. I dislike summer too it is so hard to work or do anything under the hot beaming sun, another thing you get tired quite a lot faster.
    I am more of a spring-fall type of girl. ;) kind of in between.

  4. Winter, most definitely! Preferably with a ton of snow. Summer in TX is absolutely awful!

  6. Oh! Lucky! I love Colorado, it's gorgeous. I went elk hunting with the guys a couple years ago and it was beautiful.

  7. Im in the hot West Texas sun now. and plotting my move to Alaska. buying land and such. I live offgrid and have for quite some time. used to live in Alaska about 10 years ago. Im going back definitely easier in the cold with plenty of water and fish and Trees , oh how I miss trees. No such thing as a totally self sufficient life style any longer Im afraid it takes money to live no matter who you are and where you are. Ugly truth good luck
