First day at work

Tomorrow will be my first day of work and fourty hours of training at Alaska Family Services. I'll be working as a DVSA relief advocate at the women's shelter in Palmer. I interviewed last Tuesday and I found out on Friday. After two weeks of relatively little to do, it will be nice to be gainfully employed.

Butte Loop

On this grand occasion of fall, of which I haven't had much occasion to enjoy before, I went for a bike ride. I rode out the Old Glenn Highway toward the Butte and then took the Bodenburg Loop that meanders past reindeer and u-pick farms. During the afternoon there was little to no traffic on the quiet two lane road. Upon my return to Palmer, I stopped by to see the Martin family. They are all pleasant and well and Josh was astounded by my ride, convinced I'd ridden at least thirty miles. I'd thought less and confirmed that the whole outing was only twenty miles.

we're online

These are my favorites of the 700 or so senior pictures that I took for Kendra on Sunday.

I'm flying to Boston tomorrow

I'm not actually going anywhere, but as a preflight email reminded me, I have a reservation leaving Sitka at 6:00 am. It is the second half of an airline miles round trip ticket that got me from Orlando to Sitka in May. I am going to Anchorage today to take Kendra's senior pictures.

Computer is still a no show in the mail, so more details will have to come when my time is less limited.

internet should be coming soon

I'd like to apologize for the lack of posts. I've spent most of my time lately telling parents that their children are too tall to go in the enchanted forest. But now that the fair is done I've been composting flowers and harvesting vegetables. I'll have work through the end of next week and my computer should come any day now... and my Internet connection should come on Sunday. That means pictures and more frequent posts. Pictures just aren't any fun when they stay on your camera.
