We're lucky with where our property is located we actually get a few hours of direct sunshine in the winter before it slips back below the horizon.  It makes a huge difference having south facing windows, the little bit of sun in the dead of winter can be really rejuvenating.  Cabin fever is a very real thing, the lack of sunlight can really affect people in the winter and with how north Fairbanks is, that can be very little light indeed.  If you live on the wrong side of a hill, you might not have any direct sunshine for a few months and that twilight can be really depressing after a while. 
It's really important to get outside in the winter, aside from the regular chores, we do snow-shoeing, skiing and hopefully this winter, some ice-skating on the pond.  We going to try to go ice fishing this winter as well, the kids are getting gold enough that it'll be fun for them and it'd be something a little out of the ordinary for us.  Sometimes you just have to make your own adventures!  (Although hopefully not to adventurous - I like very little excitement when it comes to ice.) 


  1. Wow, it must be really something to have such little sunlight! Although lately I kinda know the feeling, it's dark when I go into to work, and dark when I get out. Those sound like fun winter activities!

  2. Oh yes, cabin fever is a pain in the ass. Living in isolation, or with no sunshine can really make a difference for our crappy brain. I'm quite happy you guys live on such a great spot!
    I adore the scarf blanket, so cute! I can't wait to go ice skating O_O


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always like hearing feeback! (It really makes my day!)
