The other day, I found out that I have been selected to receive two copies of a new book for military wives. It is called "Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives" The publisher will send me two copies, one for me, and one to give away to a reader out there. I will then read my copy and give a review, both on here as well as

I'm looking forward to that.

This week, with highs in the 30's, and the chance of the first snow of the year, it is time to go through the clothes, pack away the summer clothes, and assess the clothing for winter. Forget Autumn. It is my favorite season, but only lasts about a week up here.

We all need boots. So we will begin the search for good boots for everyone. We also need good gloves. We already have coats and hats.

Something else I'm going to need to get, is a snow shovel. Didn't really need one of those in North Carolina!

And of course one of the most important things to get to prepare for winter, we absolutely can't go with out. To do so would be detrimental.

We get all our stuff from Big Rays, they have better prices than the Prospector! We spent ALOT of money last year on winter gear and survival kits for the cars, but this year all I had to buy was a pair of boots for my stepson. If you need any help or recommendations on what to buy, just ask:)

Conni-Just getting a chance (after co-op) to stop by and say hi....and...brrrr! I can't imagine thinking about sleds yet! My cousins lived in Anchorage for several years and totally loved it.

Thanks for joining the SITS group and I look forward to perusing many yummy recipes.

Now following.

Oh my gosh- I'm in Alaska too! AND I also came from NC!! Small world. Where you guys stationed at Fort Bragg? We were at Pope for 6 years, but have been living here in AK for a little over 3 years. So far we're enjoying it!

Wow. Highs in the 30's. We have highs in the 90's still here in south Texas. I kind of would like some cooler weather!

The devotional book sounds very interesting. I look forward to hearing your review.

It's hard to believe your temperatures are in the 30's in SEPTEMBER!! I hope you can get all your gear (including some truly wonderful sleds). It sounds expensive to have to outfit a whole family for an Alaskan winter. I hope you can find good prices.
