My oldest daughter, kids, and fiancé have made the trip down from Anchorage twice this month. It’s rare that she is able to do that more than once a year, but now that her fiancé is in the picture her life is more active. They had fun fishing and boating, camping and visiting. Next week he’ll leave to commercial fish in Bristol Bay for two or three months. While the girls were here, I had them choose different colors of glass rods and I made focal beads that I later put on chains for them. They enjoyed watching grandma using fire to make beads.
I had to dodge a caribou a couple days ago. It nearly got hit by an oncoming car, turned and darted back off the road only to turn around to try it again. Fortunately, the other cars all stopped so he was able to run across the highway and down the embankment. Dodging moose is fairly common, but caribou aren’t usually crossing the roads as they are summer visitors usually found in isolated areas.
The weather has been fairly pleasant with most days in the 50s or 60s. We’ve not had enough rain so the wildfire danger is still high. The trees are really beginning to green up and our tulips are in bud. My husband had to put wire cages over them because one bed has already been eaten by a moose.
Tomorrow morning I will get the second set of shots in my knees (one in each knee). My naturopath is using prolotherapy so within just a few weeks the cartilage should regenerate and I should be able to climb stairs, walk without my knees swelling and painful, and possibly ride a bike. My knees should do okay, it is just that I’ve not ridden a bike in over 40 years. I’ve never used handbrakes and I don’t want to fly over the handlebars.
We had a good dinner of roasted chicken, rice, and mixed vegetables. There was nothing left over. We’ve eaten a lot of chicken the past couple weeks. I’m trying to keep my A husband away from red meat. I guess that is working, but I really NEED some red meat and soon.
