As if using the elliptical trainer wasn't bad enough, this is my view. I am watching Roswell on DVD to pass the time...

Volcano preparedness. Bottled water, extra canned goods. Not much beer though. Must fix that.

Thor and Tess have gotten into this war game/model thing called Warhammer 44k. They spent much of their spring break painting tiny little models.

Tiny little models.

Teeny little grumpy heads.

Thor or Tess took this photo. You can see how tiny the guys are. Apparently you then build some kind of battlefield and roll dice. That's all I know about the game.

One raven thought there was something interesting in the street. Pretty soon there were eight or ten checking out whatever it was. We have to be careful not to have overflowing garbage cans, because they can get into them and make a big mess.

Pecking at the ice. I don't know why.

Abe has a thing about birds. He would really really like to be chasing the ravens flying away.

Tess was in the city-wide 6th grade honor band. She had a three note solo on the tympani...it was great.

It was really icy one evening. The next morning, we saw four or five cars like this.

The Knik Arm of the Cook Inlet. Icy and cold.

    Yay Tess and I can't imagine having to have things ready for a volcano of all things. Image overload!!!!

  4. My dogs go after squirrels, not so much the birds. The moose still stuns me. Biggest thing we see in our yard is the occasional opossum.

  5. I can't use an elliptical. Don't know why, but I can't. I call it the satan machine.

  8. Wow! That car accident... those scare me. I HATE seeing accidents in winter. They depress me. But it's an amazing emotive shot. And the last one is really wonderful, too! I love the focus!

  9. I see the perfect spot for the beer there! LOL

    That first shot of the birds is disturbing. They look like they're plotting something together.

    And that shot of The Knick Arm of the Cook Inlet? That is beautiful.

You like me! You really really like me!

Or maybe you just find me horribly annoying and are about to let me know. Go ahead, I can deal.

So, whatever, you know, leave a message. Thanks!!!
