I went out to mom's today. It kept snowing and snowing and by the time the afternoon was over, a stunning landscape was left.

Was able to get out to mom's this last week. I must admit, Stevie Veal's idea to stand up the yellow tires was absolutely brilliant. I think of this every time I look at the driveway!

I went out on New Year's Day Eve to stand on the edge of the bluff over the river. The tide was coming in, ice was riding on the surface, time had not stopped.
Later that evening, I went outside to look at bright explosions in the sky. I managed to finally capture at least one set of lights on trees at an office near here. They are bright green, red, and blue. This is the only one which turned out.
When the major fireworks started, I ran outside again, in less clothes than I should have. (I had forgotten my insulated skirt, classic to usage in the northern climes!) I didn't walk to the bluff edge, but I thought about it! There were fireworks going off in every direction. Echoes of pops reverberated while I was talking to Steve. I was completely cold and in need of a warm shower when I got back inside.
And yet, the Kenai River stayed its course and never wavered.

Gifts around the tree (thank you to Loren and Lindsey for the tree!).
Lighted trees and silly presents hanging on the door (for Jacit) and next to mom's walker for mom!
