It's beginning to look a lot like the holidays

Life has been a whirlwind for me the last few months. Election season has come and gone, and now it is almost year-end. I have my trip to Maui and Kauai nearly planned, and cannot wait for the warm air and spending time with a couple of my favorite people in the world!! It sure is expensive to fly off the rock (as they say around here). I love how isolated our little island is, but the major drawback is that airfare is astronomical to travel. I had a conference last week in Juneau, and I was surprised a simple 40 minute flight was over $330.00. That's highway robbery, I say.

We are projected to get some snow tomorrow, which will turn slushy when the rain arrives. We are nearing the end of a cold, dry spell that I thoroughly enjoyed. The days are short now, with sunrise at 7:30 and sunset at 3:30. And we still have a month of the darkest days yet to come.

All is well in my little hamlet. I am looking forward to the holidays coming up. That of decorating my house, listening to carols and drinking egg nog next to my electric heating vent. Ah, the good life.
