Valdez Dollhouse

I think this is one of the cutest houses in Valdez. So cute it has a miniature doll house on the porch.

Also has a basement.

Starting a new series called "Valdez Houses".

Puddle Walkin'

Joel Hales, 11, trudges through a deep puddle bordering the Pioneer Park parking lot on his way home from school Monday afternoon, April 28, 2008, despite chilly temperatures in the 30’s. When asked what his parents say when he comes home wet and muddy, Hales replied, “They get used to it.” According to the National Weather Service, expect cloudy skies for the rest of the week with sporadic rain and snow and highs from 40 to 55 degrees.

Gorgeous day in Valdez by mid-morning. After high wind gusts caused a racket all night. High 40's tomorrow. YES.

Had to stop and take a picture of these two teenagers walking around town. They sure know how to brighten up the world!

Colorful Daisies

Time for some color on this blog. I started a couple flats of Livingstone Daisies today. No instant gratification with my favorite annual. They don't bloom here til around the 4th of July. Sometimes later, sometimes never. But when they do bloom, its well worth the wait.

Jalapeno Pack

This time of year, a couple months before the fresh fish returns, everybody craves Copper River Reds. Everywhere I go people are asking me if I could spare a few cans.
The freshpack Jalepeno is my favorite so I always end up with extra to share.
This can was made into dip.
