Spring happenings...

Well, the wood pile is getting smaller isn't it?
This is our first fire of the season. Here in Alaska it is TOO cold to have an outdoor fire in the winter, but Spring and Summer are GREAT times for outdoor fires. Curtis built this fire pit our first summer here and it is wonderful to have. Helps keep the mosquitoes away also!
Snow shovels are heading back into storage.
IF we can get our mosquito magnet working, we hope it will help with the mega-mosquitoes this year.
Of course, I had to get my fishing gear ready today! We bought our fishing licenses today so I had 'fishing fever' We got the new line on the reels and are ready to go!! May 10th I plan on catching my first King Salmon of the season! I know, wishful thinking, but that is okay.

Dody ~ I just wanted to pop in to say that I really like your blog. It's one of my favorites. I was wondering if I might link it from my blog? ~Yvonne (from SHS)

FUN FUN! My boys would LOVE to go fishing up in AK sometime!

Hi Yvonne. Yep, you sure can. I think Kristine did that too. I need to do that to my blog and link to others, just haven't sat down to do it! Thanks so much. Blogging is so much fun!

Oh, you're going to make De'Etta and her boys (mainly her boys) jealous with that kind of fishing talk. :)

I grew up fishing at the lake where I grew up in northern Indiana. . . I really wish my kids had the same experiences that I did but living down here away from the lake they don't get the chance until we got back home to my sister's homes.

Dody - this cracked me up. It reminded me of our recent fishing trip. Nolan so badly wanted to catch a trout...because..."all I've ever caught are King Salmons". LOL
