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.


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


Cold wind, just cuts right through you. Brrr……

Melting Lake Ice

42 degrees and wind, the lake ice is melting. Strange weather for this time of year.

Duck Migration

The ducks are migrating south, they stop here for a little rest on the lawn, then take off all together and continue their journey.

Redington School Commission

The beginning of a 4 panel (32′) commission for the new Redington school under the Alaska Per Cent for Art in new schools program. Panels 2 & 3.

Ice Fishing Hut

It is cold and windy outside, but the ice fishermen are toasty warm inside the fishing hut with a heater and a T.V. so they won’t miss the game.

1939 Lionel 1666

Yesterday a very nice man came over and repaired our antique Lionel train. It was purchased for my husband during his first year of life. It runs perfectly again. We had to remove the switch tracks, they were shorting the track out. So now the train motors beautifully on the oval track. Thank you John!

Turkey Day

We will be eating within the hour. Looks and smells good!

Well sanded roads

The Borough has done a good job of sanding the roads, they were black ice before, then it snowed. I’m glad for the heavy layer of sand.

Wind Polished

Nineteen degrees and howling wind, very uncomfortable outside.


Rather foggy out there today.

Duck Tracks

Looks like there is still one duck in Alaska, I see the tracks where it landed and walked over to the bird feeder, ate sunflower seeds before walked away and flew off.

Bald Eagle

A week ago this huge Bald Eagle landed on a tree next to the frozen lake. The next day our neighbors reported that their cat was missing. You think???

Princess is Four Years Old!

She had her birthday on October 29, I can’t believe we’ve had her for almost four years! She is a constant joy and a big love bug.

Ice Cracks

The wind has polished the ice and exposed a myriad of cracks in the ice.

Lake Snow

A little snow on frozen ice and you have a lake of snow. Temperatures were around 9 degrees this morning.

Frozen Surface

Yesterday morning the surface of the lake was frozen with a thin crust of ice. It will grow thicker each day as temperatures do not rise above freezing. The temptation for those who do not realize how thin the ice is, is to walk on it. Warning, stay off the ice until it is at […]

The Resident Muskrat

This little guy lives under the dock burrowed into the soft mud bank. I rarely get to see him. Once the lake is frozen we will see his bubble trails, occasionally he will appear beneath our feet under the clear ice.
