Not Bad for a Sunday

While we woke up to what looked like a serious blizzard, the sky finally cleared off.  The 1" of snow melted quickly, leaving me very little to complain about!

I was quite productive for a Sunday, even though there were plenty of puppy distractions.  This photo shows 23 pairs of earrings.  I made one more pair after taking the photo because 23 simply did not feel right to me.  Silly, huh?


For the past few day, a pair of Bald Eagles has been hanging around our neighborhood.  I can't get enough of them and I finally remembered to bring my camera on our afternoon walk with Jet.  The eagle mating season is probably in full swing this far north and the pair, who mate for life, are probably building or rebuilding a nest.  I only saw one of them today.


It's amazing how easy they are to spot when there are still no leaves on the trees.  I hope they hang around a while.

Very cool eagles! I would have to keep an eye on my small dogs though...

In South ANC we did not get that snowfall but in the morning as I drove to the Alaska Club on Tudor I drove into the fierce blizzard. I could not believe my eyes. April 10!!!!

Wow you were busy and the earrings look great! I have been watching the bald eagles on a decorah nest cam. They just hatch. You can watch them live 24/7. So glad you get to see them in person. I would love that. Enjoy the rest of your week Vicki!

Um... that's not a bad amount of work done for any day! You amaze me, seriously.

And aww - I didn't know bald eagles mate for life! That's really kind of sweet...
