40-Watt Cabin

Russ-Stick Acres, by Sherry SutherbyIt’s truly a “different world” living on our 40 acres without Internet. We rely on our radio station (WLJN) for all our “input”(no TV). And it’s a common sight to walk in the cabin and see Hubby “Russ” sitting on a wood stump (yes, in our cabin) reading the Bible, hovered under our single light source, a 40-watt bulb (yes, only one light in our entire cabin).

We had the most amazing tour with our sled dogs last Saturday (yes, we are blessed with snow), and expect to do the same this Saturday (yes, still blessed with snow). Life is good.

One of our older Siberians (Dee Dee) went to be a “house” dog, joining a wonderful family of five and their family dog. What a blessing. We are looking for more wonderful families, if you are out there and interested. Beautiful dogs, with beautiful hearts and an amazing capacity for love. It is our desire for them to have some experience with what it would be like to have an “indoor” home in their final years of life.

Tax preps are done for me. And word has it, it should be near 40 tomorrow. I, for one, am loving this.  OH, and SAP is flowing like crazy!  Maple trees are adorned with buckets.

Until I check in next time…
