Sorry for the severe lack of activity, I've been a busy boy.
School work has kept me very busy and I've been working a lot of hours (what else is new, right?) but the biggest thing that kept me from blogging was my move - yay!
I was down looking for a house, just got back after 2 weeks away. What a stressful process but all's well that hopefully ends well. We found a nice house, affordable, with enough room for us and the kids. It even has a partial basement (remainder is crawlspace on rock) - I've really missed having one. Enough room for storage, room for training, and a workshop area.
I love the city, we're right on the ocean - fresh seafood every day :)
The one downside of the house is that it has no backyard and very little yard in front. I was hoping to put up a large greenhouse and garden and maybe even attempt to raise some goats and/or chickens. A small (very small) vegetable garden/greenhouse will be possible but that's it.
I'll have to investigate starting a community greenhouse or something in my copious free time (lol), I don't think they have anything already.
I'm moving at the beginning of January, I'll try to catch up on my blogging but things are still looking a bit crazy, there may be minimal entries until my training is complete, sometime in February.
I'm so excited! I'll be 12 years and 5 months in the Arctic - long enough, it's time to start a new chapter in our lives.
