Beach Ice

That's the last of it. Spring is here and we're getting some much needed Vitamin D. Today we have 16 hours and 57 minutes of visible light and tomorrow will be 5 minutes and 29 seconds longer. 4 more weeks of school and then it's time to fish, walk dogs, camp, hike and cook. It's a rough life.

Dear Diary

April 6th- Pretty disgruntled when I saw the view out the front window... In all the ugliness of Breakup, I was just starting to believe in Spring again. (The link is to a blog post by Jeff King, owner of Jeff's King's Budget Charters, and Jetty Dog) April 7- Disappointing news from Montana, fingers crossed that it's temporary. April 10- Proved how old and boring I am when I went home from a friend's bday party in Anchorage at 10:00 because of back pain. There was a live band and plenty of beer and great company. And one big party pooper with one big back ache. Went shopping in the big city. Discovered I've gained two pant sizes. WTF? April 11- Talked about the benefits of fasting and pinkie swore to get more active. Ok, no pinkie swearing but what else do you talk about in a diary? April 13- Been on two long walks this week and one long "diet." I'm so lucky this crackhead neighborhood is by the beach! What a difference 6 days makes... Sunshine, (brown) grass and dirty, melting ice! Spring at last!

I Can See Clearly Now

It'll come as no surprise that I lost my glasses, again. This time I'm pretty sure they're gone for good. So, I decided to actually use some of those benefits I pay for every month ( which reminds me of my current tax debacle but that's a whole other story) and get some new ones.
After much consideration and texting of pictures to the big, bossy sister, I decided on these beautys:

But in the end she talked me out of them. Here are the real winners:

Giants colors!!! Got tickets to a game for my trip in May for my college roommate's wedding. The second couple I know to have met at a game who are now getting married. Now I'll be able to see the field.

Preschool Visitor

I moose learn to be a good friend too!

More Juneau

It's tough to make myself post without having a real computer but I'll suffer through for my three devoted fans. The following are a sampling from the native art collection at the Alaskan State Museum in Juneau. It was an impressive exhibit so enjoy.
