Well I have been doing all kind of things around the house to keep busy. We have been having some nice weather, so David and I took advantage of it. David takes very good care of the lawn. We have found one big difference is that it needs to be mowed once a week. In Alaska it was every two weeks to a month depending on the rain. I have been working in the flower bed and trying to put a garden in. It is a lot of fun planting all the different flowers and there are so many more things I can grow in the garden here.Continue reading “Keeping Busy”
Staying home, social distancing and wearing mask is our new norm but you can work in the yard without worrying about any of the above.
Every nice day David and I are out in the yard doing something. I got the front flower beds taken care of. We even got some flowers because there is this tent in the parking lot near us that is selling plants. I was told they come down every spring from Lancaster.
I got the edging delivered from Aldi’s. I know it isn’t straight but it works.Continue reading “Yard Work and Covid-19”
We have been walking, when weather permits, around our neighborhood. I have noticed a lot of people all day doing the same thing. I wonder if there will be as much walking when this is all over. We decided to make our walk a photo shoot.Continue reading “Walking the Neighborhood”
Four years ago while visiting John Lee and Nancy we found a nice brewery called Lantern Brewing. Every time we come back we always go to have a beer or two. It is about 6 blocks from their house.
When John and Nancy left for work we decided we would walk to Lantern Brewing and eat from whatever food truck the have there.
Yes, I had to take some flower photos on our walk.Continue reading “Brewery and Mexican Food”

The students studying Japanese at UAA, University of Alaska Anchorage, had an afternoon of Japanese food, green tea, Pikachu, Tai Chai and other activities to try or watch.
Being that my husband, David’s, Dad spent the first 11 years of his life in Japan because his parents were missionaries there., so David has always been interested in Japanese things. They even started a food co-op which the last we heard was still going.Continue reading “Japanese Infusion”
As soon as we got service when we were leaving McCarthy our friends called and asked if we wanting to go camping in Homer. We figured we could kill two birds with one stone. We had promised our little friend, Silas, when we were in Ajo, AZ visiting them that we would walk along the beach in Homer with him while he was visiting his father. So we got home on Sunday and left again on Friday for Homer.Continue reading “Camping on the Spit”
We left our hotel in Brookings, Oregon at 8:20 and headed to Harris Beach.
Harris Beach was named after the Scottish pioneer George Harris who settled here in the late 1880s to raise sheep and cattle. The park boasts the largest island off the Oregon coast. Bird Island (also called Goat Island) is a National Wildlife Sanctuary and breeding site for such rare birds as the tufted puffin.
