seward in springtime
spring is springing all over the place here in alaska.
this evidenced by the first batch of slow-moving, high potency mosquitoes. hot-tub sitting is not quite so enjoyable as it was at minus 15.
we have just returned from a long weekend away where we had a great, extended time in seward.
jaden celebrated being 6 years young with his very dear buddy lydia. ("she's 5, and i'm 6 now.")
a lovely, relaxing, no home-improvement time was had by all.
we are home now, faced with an almost done kitchen, a very happy and nicely settled in dog, (whom is still being called rocky, sometimes rocket and whom we love very much) and an overly affectionate cat who thought we were never coming home.
trees are trying to bud. undergrowth is pushing its way to the top of dead, brown debris in the woods, and the driveway is muddy.
its the start of the work week for me- so cheers.
here's to blooming trees and flying insects.. ..
