Mallard duck trying to scratch an itch.

Strange and WONDERFUL Sunday

Today started out great, and got better. I enjoyed breakfast with my DH, spent some time with the "puppies" and figured it was time to call the family in the lower 48. Little did I know that I would get a great big shock. Turns out I became a Grandmother. My son was a little surprised by this news a couple of months ago and didn't want to tell me until after he finished doing the test and then going to court to get visitation rights. One hand I really would like to throttle him, we had "the talk" a long time ago. On the other hand my new grandbabies, are beautiful. Yep, babies, twins, a girl and a boy. Now I can't wait to start spoiling the rotten out of them. Well the credit card company will love me. LOL. Oh well, my life has never been simple, always a little crazy and I hope it doesn't change.

These little snowbunnies are my "boys" on the left is Buddy my happy go-lucky bichon frise, and on the right Taz the "old man" a toy poodle.

Why I started a blog.

Seems like everyone has a blog now. This will be my place to rant and rave, let off steam, praise my family, friends, pets, post pictures and post things I just happen to like. I have turned a hobby into a small business, but this blog is not all about that. I have found other artist along the way who do amazing work and I will be featuring their work also.

I am lucky enough to live on a beautiful island in Alaska. The beauty of the island is more than the view, it is the people of the island. They are an incredible bunch of people. I have always dreamed of coming to Alaska. Alaska was on my dream sheet in the Army. The reason it is a dream sheet, cause you can just keep on dreaming. Never got here while I was in the Army. But after my husband got out of the service, he got a job here and gave me a whole new adventure, just when I thought all of my adventures where over.
