This year’s garlic harvest.
That new paint job on the dinghy is looking pretty good! (Photo by Marina).
'Miracles' - a haiku…
After water breaks
There is no need for wine. This
Child is proof enough.
And then there were five.
Still life art from the girls.
An adolescent eagle on the edge of our driveway, practicing his imposing look. When the wind comes up there are a pair of them, both immature, that play on the updrafts, rolling in the air to hook talons, falling and separating, spiralling upwards until they are specks against the sky. (photo RML)
Not really summer, but not quite fall. Something delicately on the balance in between.
One of my favorite things about Alaska, although we haven’t had much time for picking, yet…(photo RML)
Like father like daughter. This baby is doing a very good job being a baby: lots of eating, sleeping, looking around, messing diapers, burping and a little bit of fussing. It’s like she has been doing this her whole life. It is a little tiring, though - for everyone. Our neighbors and friends have been wonderful, going out of their way to welcome the baby and congratulate the proud big sisters, bringing us gifts, delicious edibles and even whole meals. How lucky we are to have all these wonderful people in our lives…
How you know that your child is Alaskan… Her cousin gave her a drawing of a beautifully rendered female figure with an elaborately detailed dress and coiffure. My daughter was touched and pleased and wanted to reciprocate. Her drawing is a polar bear eating a seal in the snow. Obviously. I think it is the bloody muzzle that really brings this tableau to life.
