What's Up?

Wow!  I can't believe how long I haven't posted!  I've been SO busy!  Doing what, you say?  Ummm, (kicks toe in sand) well-stuuuuff.....
Actually, I haven't been doing much of anything except cooking up a storm and avoiding the out-of-doors because 10 below isn't my cup of tea!  I know most people up here aren't affected by that temperature, it's much colder in various parts of Alaska.  It's even been colder than that here at our casa, but I've had little patience with that this winter for some reason.  I guess I'm just getting older.

We've had a moose hanging out in our side-yard.  Tracks here and there and the tell-tale pile-o-poo at the edge of the driveway.  This one is avoiding my camera though, so I will just share this example:

I have to say that I find these creatures fascinating!  They're gangly yet graceful, magestic and surprisingly quiet.  They can be serene but fierce.  I'm happy one has been comfortable enough to frequent our place. 

Look for some food posts in the near future.

Well, that's what we've been doing around here.  What's up with you?

Yeah, I have to say this winter has brought back not-so-fond memories of my growing up years in Delta Jct. Bitter cold, howling wind and not much relief from either for months on end... it's got to be that 15 year weather cycle.

It's good to see you back! Keep cookin' and stay warm. :)

Thanks, Ti!

I'm glad to know it's not just my perception. Wow, Delta Junction. We have a friend who grew up there as well, and I've heard stories of the cold!

I really have no room to complain.
