giving thanks

this has been a fantastically long weekend.

first we ate like queens and kings and hung out alaska-style around a bonfire smoking stogies and drinking wine.
then, we desecrated our bathroom (very satisfying- begone white linoleum and cheap "subway" tiles)
then i snowshoed at independence mine (with karen, who deserves a medal for making the trek, in a snowstorm, from los anchorage)
and then skied out at the moose range with my boys.
and we've still got an entire day before our work week begins.

someone gimme a woooo hooooooo!

did i mention it's DUMPING?????
