Fishing Derby

Today was the Fishing Derby on our lake, many vehicles arrived with people all decked out in Carhartts or snow suits. At first it was chilly and windy, but as the day progressed the sun came out and the wind slowed down. It looked like a good time was had by all.

Fishing Hut

Today there are about six or seven fishing huts in our view of the lake. Fishing must be good!

Last Night

Nature put on quite a show last night. Gorgeous!

Overnight Fresh Snow

We got 4-6″ of snow overnight, just enough to shovel the walkways and have the driveway plowed. It is always stunning to walk among the spruce trees laden with new white snow. At 7:00AM it was still dark when I took Princess outside, and the trees on the lawn were gorgeous with their colored lights […]

Ring Neck Pheasant Visitor

Yesterday I caught a glimpse of an unusual bird walking in the woods alongside our front lawn. I grabbed my camera and got a couple of shots before the Pheasant disappeared into the brush. I wonder if he is domestic, pheasants are not normally seen in this part of Alaska.

Seriously Gorgeous Sunset

Wow, we’ve had some seriously gorgeous sunsets lately.

Everett’s Bar & Bistro on Cottonwood Lake

This is some seriously good food, burger patties from local beef. My new favorite place!

Winter Sunset Best!

Wow, the sunset kept getting better and better. Awesome!

Winter sunset 4:00PM

The sunsets at this time of year can be spectacular. This one is shaping up to be gorgeous. I’ll keep watching and taking photos, maybe post another for tomorrow.

Slick Roads

I came down our hill very slow but at the turn at the bottom I slid out-of-control and nearly ended up on the lawn. Half an hour later a Borough sand truck arrived and sanded the heck out of the turn. Nice job Transportation Department! The roads are bad, it warmed up to 40 above […]

Wind Polished Ice

The wind has been blowing for days, and has polished the ice into a slick surface. Not good for walking right now.

Tea Pot, Fondue Pot

My kids did good this Christmas, we have two new pots to play with. I haven’t had fondue for years! Now to buy some really good cheese.

40 ft. Christmas Tree

Our tree is visible all over the lake. So beautiful!

Christmas Day Stroll

The lake was busy Christmas day, people walking, skating, snow machines, ATV’s, dogs, ice fishing huts, and everything else. The day was sunny and not too cold. Christmas in Alaska, fun for all!

Birthday Cake

I had a lovely birthday, two cakes from family and friends (I froze one for later). I am blessed with love from family and friends.

Merry Christmas

The ice is thick enough to support a vehicle, an airplane took off and landed the lake is now a huge runway. People are riding snow machines and ATV’s and the winter fun has begun. Because caring for Bob is taking so much of my time, as well as working on a 32′ commission for […]

Tree Lights 2017

I see that the tree farthest away has a section of burned out lights. Gotta go shop for some new ones tomorrow.

Out Of Order

Time for a new washer. Bob’s caregiver is at the laundromat right now doing four loads of wash. Tomorrow Sears, here we come.

Deadly Black Ice

Time to wear ice cleats when walking on pavement.

Sun

The sun barely clears the horizon in Alaska at this time of year, it is getting ready to set at 2:30PM.
