my mom just didn't like housecleaning. it's a never ending task so i must agree with her in the less is best plan. i remember the sun had finally shown up in ketchikan and everyone was out enjoying it. everyone except this co-worker i guess. she said she hadn't gotten out there because she had too much housework to do...really?? in a place where you get over 12 feet of rain a year, when the sun comes out, forget the housework.
started my day in the bog. well started my getting out of the bed/house day. took rio and blossom for a loop there. blue skies and close to 20 degrees. there is talk of snow, we'll see, one can hope. after the bog i met my friend sandra out for play time at westchester lagoon. the lagoon is frozen over each winter and it's a great place for ice skating and family play. there are some big loops hot mopped. today it seems many others had the same idea we did. everyone looked to be having a great time. love seeing all the town out on the ice. great living some place where the cold doesn't hinder peoples activities. there are some barrels with a warming fire. no lights though, that would be cool.
as you can see, many different activities take place on the ice. above a woman pulls her baby in a sled. below..well that is sandra getting some lovin from blossom. that dog is pretty wiped out and sore i suspect after running on the slippery ice. i took her frisbee and tossed it on the snowy bits. i think that and all the people to say hello to was her favorite.
