***HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY*** and ***IT'S THE ANNIVERSARY OF OUR FIRST DATE*** A blind date...and look what happened! Four awesome kids and five equally awesome grandkids! God has blessed us with so much and continues to shower down His abundant grace every minute.
We did get to see our friends...but only for several hours one day last week. Better that than not! We will see them several times during the summer...and hopefully, before then, too.
Tonight we will have a few friends over...for spaghetti (yup...what we had on our blind date) and Alaska talk. Two will be going this summer...the other two probably next year. We'll be giving them the whole scoop...where to stop for fuel/night/eat/see...and feeling sad we can't go with them.
The weather can't decide...snow...sun...wind (not a lot here)...rain...kinda like SPRING weather. Do you suppose??? SPRING is almost here???!!! Been keeping track of Talkeetna weather and they were colder than us for about a month...now, again, about the same...just what we were told two years ago when we started our 'owning a piece of Alaska' adventure.
I've made 16 wall hangings so far...and, so far, haven't sold any, but given most to family (whether they wanted them or not). Maybe soon they will take off with selling...also thinking I'll send some to Talkeetna this spring. There HAS TO BE ONE OR TWO cruise passengers that want one hanging in their homes to remember their trip!
