Lazy or just busy?

Has it really been since April?  I know I got busy but got grief.  At the end of April We flew to Anchorage and I got  a new "used" truck"  it has never been owned but in the state of Alaska if some one that does not work for the dealer takes a vehicle off the lot over night the vehicle becomes a "used" vehicle good for me  got a great deal on a really nice F150 with all the bells and whistles on it.  Had to drive to Homer which takes around 5 hours to get on the ferry.  But we took our time and stopped along the way ended up staying the night in Soldotna and then drove into Homer we spent the night there since the ferry left early the in the morning.  Nice view, nice meal, lots of shopping the truck was packed only room we had was our seats. 

Once we got home I went right into prep mood for the cruise ships and haven't stopped until now.  I lost a hard drive with nearly all of my work.  All of my photo edits are gone all paperwork gone.  My DH tried to recover it but can't get all of it so I am going to have to send it the geek squad and pay them to try and recover it.  I nearly had a melt down.  Months of work gone in a split second!  I have two new hard drives on the way I am taking all new precautions for backing up this time.  Hard lesson to learn!!!!  Oh well.  The house is getting a good cleaning. LOL

I saw a new baby duckling in our pond yesterday, was so happy to see it all of the other babies disappeared.  Well this morning I hear a duck making a racket, so I  go out on the deck from my bedroom and look out and see an eagle having got it baby duckling, mom watching.  So sad...

Well maybe I well have something happier to talk about in a few days...

Moved in

Well it is official, we are in the house with all of our stuff.  It is still in boxes and scattered to the 3 winds but it is here!  I would do the happy dance, but I am to darn tired!!!  Found out yesterday the football league helps people move as a fund raiser.  Hello, I couldn't have heard this before I finished moving??  I would have been glad to donate to their organization for some help.  Maybe I will suggest they advertise this little nugget of info. 

My camera is sitting all alone and I am jonesing to get out and snap some pics.  DH and I saw orcas as we were driving to the flats.  You have to love living in a place where you can see killer whales breaching and swimming as you are driving.  Sea lions are a little skittish right now, they do make a tasty meal for orcas. 

Well time to get back to put things were they belong.

I hate moving!  You would think I would be use to it by now.  I moved so many times in my life, but it doesn't get any easier or faster.  I am looking forward to getting into our new place.  The house is a small cabin but has great views of woods and a wonderful deck.  It also has big windows and sky lights, so it has lots of natural light (when the sun is shining) and feels very spacious.  But I have come to the conclusion that men are dirty pigs.  The single guy living there seemed to think the place was clean and my husband seemed to think it was clean, but I don't!  Now my DH is in the lower 48 and I am here with the help of a friend scrubbing this place.  I can't even start talking about how much dirt Karen got out of the carpets when she steam cleaned them.  You should have seen the stuff we got off the build in bookshelves that are spruce wood.  I haven't touch the stove yet.  Oh well, guess that is just part of our DNA and makes us different.

Week 10

Eagle in snow storm, I took this from my bedroom window.  I know lazy, huh!

Polar bear rug at a wonderful B&B we like to stay at.  She has the most amazing
collection in her house. It like wandering through a museum.


The beautiful suncatcher I got from Natasha  at GreenhouseGlassworks on Etsy.  When a really good ray of sun hits it, it is just like having the sun inside with you.  It was snowing when I took this with my phone and it was rather gray.
