We have slid a little WEST

We have moved to the Northwest Territories. Oh to have trees. I live right on the banks of the MacKenzie River, near the end of the Ice road. The river is still frozen but soon it will break. The days are getting longer. It is still light when I go to bed and wake up.

We have moved back home! What an experience of a lifetime...
If you ever get the chance to shake up your life do it! It makes your heart beat and wow what incredible experience you can have.
I met some wonderful people that I will enjoy for the rest of my life, Hubby got to be many things he would never have had a chance to be..
thanks Nunavut!!

Window Garden

A quick post while I am in Yellowknife and free internet...

I started a hydroponic windoe garden. It so far has 4 recycled bottles, inside is a natural wool with a soil pellet. I had to paint the bottoms and they are joined so the water can flow through each to the bottom reservor. I have to get my recyled I-V bag that I will inject with the fertiliser solution and it can feed my plants (that is if they grow) continuesly (SP).

Other thing you can see that the snow is melting!! The temp has been above 0 a few times. The moisture in the air is coming so it can feel like home somethings.

Well I can write more, I have a plane to catch...Just wanted the free internet to load some pics..

Melting....river running through..

Polar Bear and Gjoa haven

Today at work they said there was a Polar Bear sighting at 4 mile island, they said the hunters followed it and it was a young one they think lost. They said it had been about 20 years since a Polar bear had been this close to Kugluktuk.

A few weeks ago I was in Gjoa Haven working at the school on my way to the building this was my sights..

A Muskox and a White Fox, Muskox is used for sleeping on when they go out on the land. The fox is used for parkas around the head, hands and bottom of parks, as well as mukluks. They are a a must to keep warm and not lose a body part to frost bite.

I just love the look of this vehicle, but it doesn't run. sure looks cool though.

Giant big Ass bunnies. I wouldn't want to corner one of them, I think they could bite..
