Again, 3 weeks between blog posts.... SOOOO SORRY!!!!
I think my last blog was just before Thanksgiving?? So, our friend Jamie came to Alakanuk from Mountain Village to spend the weekend with us. She arrived on time, had a worry free flight and seemed to enjoy her time here. We spent the weekend hoping and praying for my ski doo and smoked turkey to come and spending 90% of our time laughing....
I was highly disappointed Wednesday afternoon when I checked the PO and the turkey hadn't come... But it all turned out okay because I still was able to make pumpkin pie, ham, sour cream potatoes, apple pie and rolls. We also had a new invention on our dinner table.... Since we didn't have any turkey drippings to make gravy, nor did we have any powdered gravy mix we decided to give it a shot making ham gravy. Jamie created a masterpiece.
I had new adventure the day after Thanksgiving. I attempted cross country skiing. I did fall once going down a little hill, but for the most part I did really well. I think it helps that I've water skied so much, and tried downhill skiing a few times in my younger years. :) We skied to the dock and shot Jana's .22. It was really cool to see the dock because I hadn't been down there since before the big storm. The ice looks awesome.
Our student council also hosted the Turkey Tournament. Its a regional tournament for the mens city league teams around AUK. I spent lots of hours at the school volunteering to do scorebooks, gate, and help in the student store. I had originally thought that Thanksgiving weekend would be a good time to catch up on sleep. However, I think I got LESS sleep over those 5 days than I do on a regular week. Oh well, it was fun!
