There seems so much left to do and accomplish and when you put it in perspective of our remaining Northern time; we really don’t have all that much. I only realized yesterday while I was reading Newbies-in-Nunavut's Blog (Everyone give a big ‘hello’ to one of Nunavut’s newest bloggers, Lori – who will be taking over my little niche here in Kugaaruk). She has her countdown listed at ~38 days, which means considering that she wrote her blog yesterday and we are only staying a day or two after they arrive – it only gives us ~40 days to get everything packed, bought and organized….Why am I not freaking out! I was laying in bed last night, going over our t0-do list and it is extensive. The last time I had a list this large was my Northern-shopping list. Somehow I’ve developed some kind of weird mechanical-calming affect over this huge task ahead of us. I like to be prepared and organized, and while we are to a point – I should be pulling out my hair, ranting and raving about purchasing a house, truck, furniture, appliances and….well everything else; but I’m not.
Oh well, maybe I should stop ranting and raving over something I’m not ranting and raving about.
May 2-4 weekend has come and gone; and while the rest of Canada seemingly spent the last three days basking in sun and the water from nearby pools and beaches – I was bundled up against the chill that has been prominent in our air lately. This weather almost reminds me of early winter in the East – damp and cold. ( I guess I better not complain to loud then)
I have officially finished packing for our HHT – it is easy to pack for warmth and sunshine when you have neither here in Kug. Should be a whirlwind couple of days – lucky for us, pending on our decision – one of the hotels (lol pretty much the only hotel) in the area we are staying at has a Tim Horton’s directly across the street…. I somewhat doubt they have the Coldstone Creamery attached yet; but for now Coffee that I don’t make myself is all I need.
