Scenery Sunday

Yesterday my mom and I went to an open house celebration for a 100 year old homestead just outside of Palmer. I know to East Coasters 100 year old homes are common, but for Alaska they are pretty rare. Anchorage was just beginning to be settled 100 years ago as a "tent city" and Palmer wasn't settled until 1935. The farm property is beautiful with amazing views, but can you imagine living here, homesteading this land 100 years ago?!  More photos than I usually share at once, but I couldn't leave any of them out!

Mobile Posting

In an effort to actually post a little more frequently, I'm using the Blogger app. Hopefully I will have time for actual posts too, but this way I can at least stay somewhat connected.

Photo is 5:45am sunshine coming over the mountains a couple of days ago.

A belated happy 4th of July!

Enjoy a couple of photos of my Delphinium!  Beautiful!

June bento

Here is a quick shot of my bento lunch from yesterday. My sandwich is a re-creation of a delicious vegan sandwich I had recently in Ellensburg, WA, but my version has a little turkey. Hummus on one side of the bread, fresh avocado on the other side with sprouts and tomato slices between. Looks like I got a little carried away with the fruits and veggies on the side, but can you really have too many?

A Quick February Bento

A quick shot of my bento from lunch today. So much going on lately, hardly time to think much less blog but I'm trying to get back to it.

Put together a quick bento today so we could get out in the sun for a few minutes. The days are starting to get noticeably longer and brighter. We don't have very much snow right now, maybe 2" and the roads are pretty dry. Looking forward to more spring-like weather and warmer temps. 25° here today!

Throwback Thursday

No time for a real post, but why not a Throwback Thursday photo, or two?!

A few years back in Texas, visiting for my Grandpa's birthday. What fun!
