I'm not lost, I just don't know where I'm going.
But I'm determined to enjoy the journey.

It's cold, and I spend more time in my grandparents' house than my own. The wood stove there sucks really badly and the fire just dies as soon as I stop looking at it, if not sooner.

It's moist. Seriously, when I wake up in the morning, the top of my blanket is moist. Lots of condensation on the windows. What do I do about this? Just wipe it off and hope it's not a perpetually replenishing thing?

I don't have a date for when I'll have my own internet connection yet.

My plan to return mom's cellphone which she left behind here in Brosvika has been FOILED AGAIN yesterday, as I found out Eivindvik no longer has a post office. (That's preposterous! Eivindvik is the nexus of Gulen municipality. How can it not have a post office?!)
And today, the mail had already been here when I got down this morning. But at least I've weighed the package and looked up the prices, so now I know how much it'll cost to send it. Tomorrow, I promise. Wow, the mail gets delivered early here. Back at Slemdal it'd arrive sometimes as late as 17:00

It has not rained for several days now, which is nice. Were it wet, the path down from my house would probably be covered in ice. I guess I'll find an alternate path in the deep of winter.

Get a dehumidifier, perhaps, on a timer, so it starts running in the middle of the night when the problem stops?

Ahhh, humidity, my friend. Same thing happened here two nights back when Florida got hit with a cold snap.

You're getting the same effect that causes morning dew on grass - the humidity is condensing due to the temperature drop in your cabin. Either raising the temperature overnight or dropping the humidity would help. Personally though, it sounds like you'd prefer the former anyway.

Ouch. And I thought I had it bad with the humidity here.
And looking at the tag, I hope there isn't actually mold growing in your home.
