Double visit






Well Matt came back yesterday from playing in the Chugach with NOLS. I came home and he'd made spaghetti already. That was nice. Then this morning the Hamiltons, Janet (Cardenas) and Dave, drove Dan and Melissa's box cutter key start car out to Palmer. We all visited, walked to the coffee shop, did the thrift store, and went down to the river. Then the newlyweds drove Matt back to Anchorage so that he can catch his plane to Sitka.

Well it looks like after a brief interlude of Winter we are back to Spring. I'm still harding off my annuals before I plant them outside my kitchen window. The lilac bushes in the front of the house appear to be showing signs of life. There's quite the quantity of potatoes getting mashed up in my kitchenaid in hopes of becoming lefse. It may not be today or tomorrow... but with any luck I can locate the proper tools over the weekend. I also made the 6 layer nacho dip today. It makes for an easy lunch. The paper work for my grant is almost done and I hope to have it off my plate by the weekend.

Yesterday was quite a day. First I woke up far to early to drop JoJo off for his little snip snip appointment. The round trip from home to the vets to the farm to drop off my compost and back to home was 15 miles. So I was a little tired when my landlord called to say they would be over to do my floors that day. Well the floor did get done, but I didn't get to work on my grant. JoJo came back yesterday and is recovering nicely even though his little balls look quite pissed off.

and then there was light


Well, to be honest we are getting more light than darkness now. To aid in my receipt of the light I moved the books out of my window sill and into the bathroom. It actually works and it is now JoJo's favorite spot. From his vantage point he can see the clouds drifting overhead, my daffodils starting to bud, and an onion I decided to grow in my kitchen over winter.
I called Chelsea for her sour cream coffee cake recipe and I made it with mangos-a very good idea. My day off allowed me to go to the grocery store and clean my kitchen.
