Where do the days go? I can't believe another week
has passed. We have been busy here and when the
weather looks like this for days on end the time
seems to just blend together--kind of like the
movie Groundhog Day where Bill Murray
wakes up to the exact same day happening
over and over again...
We did have a touch of spring awhile ago and
I thought maybe, just maybe, winter was
over. Kodiak, AK got 20 inches of snow this past
week and had their highway shut down. Denver
is in the middle of blizzards, Mississippi just
had a tornado pass through and North Dakota
is in the middle of record flooding. What a
chaotic winter this has been!
This what is looks like outside the end of March. Aren't
there supposed to crocuses and daffodils???
last week. This is her display "How Planets are Created"
She made it all herself--the planets are styrofoam balls
surrounded by brown sugar glued down.
I love that shirt she is wearing. It looks like cammo,
but if you look closely it is bears in different colors.
My niece was also part of the science fair and her display
proved that she could get a hard boiled egg into a
bottle without having to touch it. Dad helped with the
part where you have to light the paper on fire. It
worked great and she said the egg "bibbled" as it
went down into the bottle.
I have windows in the new kitchen! This is where I will
spend a lot of my time--I am so glad I have something
beautiful to look at. I think this is where my sink will go.
I am still trying to figure out the best thing for the
middle of the kitchen to be my long worktable. Costco
carries the perfect sized stainless steel table for a great
price, but they won't ship them here. I can have them
shipped to my parent's in WA, but then how to get
them here @49 lbs each...
Tearing out the old wall and support beam into the master
bedroom. The kitchen entrance is to the right. There was
a slight mishap with a beam during this process and the
BRAND NEW WINDOW to the right of my husband got
broken. Sigh. Oh well, thank goodness it wasn't a person
that fell through the window!
The Sitka Sound Herring Sac Roe Fishery opened this
week. Did any of you catch the show about this last week
on National Geographic? My brother Keith had his name
listed in the credits on TV--pretty cool! This is part of the
fleet going by our house. I lost count at 60 boats.
The Humpback Whales are thick out there--everywhere
you look there are whales, sea lions, eagles and seagulls
gorging themselves on the herring. I was even fortunate
enough to be looking out the window just as a pair of
Killer Whales went by. That doesn't happen very often,
what a treat to see them.
