Thursday was a relief from the clouds and rain we have had enfolding us here on the Kenai. I was able to get mom to bring Obie to Arness Dock for a short visit. She enjoyed it more than her dog! We got to watch tugs dock and head back out in the Inlet, picked up rocks, and relished being in the sunshine.

After being at Arness Dock earlier, I knew it would be perfect to go back for the sunset. I arrived after 7, so I knew it would be a bit of a wait. It was worth it.

I was really hoping this wasn't the best moose photo I'd get this year-She was posed nicely and an ATV full of dogs drove past (really, the back of the rig had a St. Bernard and two goldens in it!!). Their barking scared her off.
Posts about the driveway are almost at an end. There are still things which need done, but the largest bit has been smoothed over by angels. Three of mom's neighbor's. Boys from across the lake who spent at least 5 hours in two days using rakes, shovels, and clippers to make things beautiful again. I was pretty worn out, then I realised something. I am more than the age of all 3 of these kids combined!!!
I'll let the pictures tell their story.
The excavation of mom's wood pile has been interesting. When we get the downed trees cut up and an area set up to chop and store the logs before putting it in her small shanty for wood, then we can scatter the fireweed and wildflower seeds. It will be even more lovely next summer!On my walk afterwards, I found two heart rocks. I should have found three. One for each of the amazing angels who worked in our yard. I am truly thankful and blessed by people around us who reach out with hands to help when we don't expect it.

The breeze was fairly strong, yet the sun was at such an angle, I reckon you'll have to imagine the Big Dipper on the state flag! It was flying over the second fire dept out north.
I'm glad it was such a peaceful evening. The next day, when I woke, I felt quite a bit like a creaky old car full of grass and weeds. Even the mice have vacated the residence! Old age is a ridiculous thing!
