All Good Gifts

By , August 11, 2015

Here on the “homestead” we’re enjoying our annual week of celebrations: Michelle’s birthday, the anniversary of moving to the property (our 8th, today) and Michelle’s and my 33rd wedding anniversary (see Reserve Week). Michelle decreed that her birthday would be sunny and warm. Unfortunately, the weather gods disagreed, giving us instead a darkly cloudy day and a southerly gale. Fortunately, the day before featured Michelle’s weather. On that day, we rafted the Klehini and Chilkat Rivers with Michelle’s employer’s guiding outfit.

Reserve Week

By , August 11, 2014

This week in August is so important to our family that I’ve taken to referring to it as “Reserve Week,” marking it out on calendars to keep us from accepting lesser commitments during it.

It usually begins August 10th, Michelle’s birthday. Today, August 11th, we celebrate the day we moved to the “homestead” (see Seven Years Good Luck). Today marks our 8th anniversary here. On August 14th, we celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary.

This year we kicked the week off with a special event in Haines: a young couple on the bay got married in a ceremony and reception on their land.
