Sunday, February 15, 2009

Well woke up to a beautiful morning. A weird calm out, I think the weather is switching. When the wind direction switches we get a calm before it picks back up again. It was blowing from the South all night. We let the dogs out for their morning walk. It was about 35F out this morning.

At about 11:30AM I ran down to the office and got the paperwork ready for the store for today. The weather has gone to crap again, blowing from the East - out the bay. Slight hail that stung my face while riding down on the 4-wheeler. Didn't see anyone again except my in-laws - my mother-in-law works at the store on the weekends and I had to give her the cash and keys. Other than that didn't see anyone on my ride down and back home.

We ate PB&J sandwiches for lunch. Gangland marathon on History Channel, so at least I have something to watch today. Happy that I don't have to leave the house tomorrow unless I want to. No need to go down to the office if we're closed! I think we have everything we need until Tuesday.

Not sure what to have for dinner tonight. Thinking about getting "native" and eating some dry fish with seal blubber/oil, bread and tea. I dry my own fish every summer, but I don't know how to make the blubber/oil, so I trade the dry fish I make for it. (usually from my mom, lol). We didn't really have any red salmon (Sockeye) last year, so I had to dry up pinks (humpies). I had to learn to make dry fish on my own practically with trial and error... I'm really happy to be able to know how to do it right and get it stored away for winter, instead of bumming it from our parents!

My hubby is still feeling under the weather with a head/chest cold. I don't feel too bad, so hopefully my immune system is holding strong! (knocking on wood).

Almost looked like a plane was going to come in with how the weather looked this morning, but now it's gone back to crap. I doubt the planes in Dutch are landing either with this sideways blowing snow! Damn I think my mom and our storekeeper were scheduled to fly back today too... hmmmm....

I have to go back down to the store once it closes to get the paperwork done up and put away until Tuesday! Yay, at least I know for sure I can sleep in tomorrow and not have to worry about going anywhere!! :D We're going to just sit around the house, play the game, screw around online, watch tv and the pups and just relax at home! Hope eveyone is having a great weekend! TTFN


  1. Tell us more of the dried fish/blubber/seal oil. I buy my dried fish from the Oriental supermarket. Wouldn't know how to dry it myself. Can you share how you dry it without it going bad?

  2. I'm interested in trying the dry fish, but the mold factor is a bit scary. I'm told that's what makes it good, tho.

  3. I'd love to learn how to dry fish as well - we get a big humpy run right next to my place and it would be great to get some stored for the winter. I've smoked fish before - is it similar? You're doing a great job blogging!
