Walking etc. in a Winter Wonderland

“When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels." ~Anonymous

This weekend in Quinhagak the wind died down and activity picked up.

Actually you have three choices... the third being have a snowball fight! We selected option numero tres and have pictures to tell the story.

Correction there are four choices, also sledding on the hill (which we hope will grow in height as winter continues;)

Wow, pardon me, five choices, Steph and I walked the herd down to the ocean which had surprisingly swapped out it's summer/fall attire, featuring sprawling beach for a stylish ice pack edging, with that, the not so subtle threat of the coming disappearance entirely of our beloved beach altogether as more frozen water continues to move shoreward. This afternoon Sherry, Seekers, Ani and I seized the beach and went for a pre-skijoring run, that makes six choices when it snows;) Dogs and runners are now thoroughly anticipating the skijoring season.

Pics of the quickly disintegrating beach and the multiplying ice flows.

This is a snapshot of Quinhagak on our way back from the beach.

Shout Out To: My Gram and Auntie Shelly who so graciously called me this weekend to tell me they were eating at Dairy Queen and going shopping. Thank God for family to help me keep my perspective;)

  1. Hey, I saw this and thought of you up in the wild world of bears.

  2. Hi. We're back home after our trip to Boston. How do you make a long day of that trip home? Fly through Atlanta, choose the 3 hour layover, then have that changed to nearly 6 hours when the airport in the Twin Cities is under construction. Just made our shuttle van ride back to Eau Claire - our car battery was dead when we got there - got it jumped, and made it home about 12 hours later. At least we could watch the Steelers beat the Vikings while waiting at the airport. Had a wonderful visit with our son and his family. Held our new grandson alot. Tried Sushi, Maki rolls, and mussels for the first time. God bless.

  3. Tell us about your home - how large - I love the colors of the siding.

  4. How fun for you! I love love love Sushi and mussels are so yummy! Good for you Kris. Welcome back to the midwest. Isn't it amazing how in less than a few hours we can be halfway across the world! Crazy I tell ya. I will blog about my home soon. Thanks for inquiring.

    Bobbi I'll check out that link asap! Hope all is well.

  5. The pictures are beautiful. Thanks for sharing them with all of us. We to have had snow here in the frozen tundra of Hayward Wi. Just a note to say hi and let you know that we are thinking of you. Steve is jealous of all the fish you all have caught. take care God bless.
