Tomorrow is the day! Tomorrow is the day that my fiance Adam arrives in Alaska! Adam has just finished his internship in Marquettet, Michigan. It is interesting that he is just finishing and I am just beginning. At any rate his arrival is much anticipated. Long distance relationships are, well, long distance. Along with the many miles between us there is also the four hour time difference. There have been several occasions where I have called him as I am off to bed (11:00pm AKDT) and wake him up in Marquette at 3:00am (EST). The four hour time difference has defiantly been an hurdle but we have managed to overcome it.
Adam will be here all week. In addition to Adam visiting my Concordia supervisor will also be here at the end of the week. This is also ironic since when I visited Adam on his internship in Marquette, HIS Concordia supervisor was also there.
It is good that they are coming because virtually everyone else is gone. It is fishing season and EVERYONE (and their dog-literally) have headed out fishing to the Kenai River and beyond. The fishing report has been one of the best in a long time. The number have been up exponentially! With that said not many people are around and it showed in worship this morning. I had several additional key people come up to me and apologize that they will not get to meet my supervisor or Adam as they are heading fishing tomorrow. Ah, well, this is Alaska time and I love it!
In other news there was a beautiful sunset last night. By sunset I mean 12:30am sunset. Check it out. I could see Mt. McKinley and Mt. Foraker.
