A few days ago it was -20 degrees. Currently it is pouring down rain. Strange to live in a place like this, coming from the far north of Fairbanks, Alaska where it is frozen for six months with no chance of anything warmer than about 0 degrees. Unfortunate for Martin and about 20,000 other commuters that live here and travel the 40 miles into Anchorage for work. I have a feeling that Martin will be working from the home office tomorrow.

My computer is finally working again. The fan went out a few weeks ago and I had a heck of a time getting the part here. I could only get on the computer for 10 minutes at a time to make sure it didn't overheat so now I'm catching up on all my favorite blogs.

The last two weeks have been pretty uneventful. It's been pretty quiet around here and we've gotten to be pretty lazy. We had a three week cold snap that kind of zapped the energy right out of me. We don't often get sub-zero weather but we had -10 to -20 for three weeks. All I wanted to do was sleep and I did a lot of it! I'm anxious to get out and walk the dogs again. They have a bit of stored up energy in need of an outlet right now and so do I.

Tristan and I are starting a little project- a playground for our parrot. I will post pictures upon completion; could be interesting:) Bandit gets a little bored so we are trying to remedy that with a playground that keeps him entertained. We couldn't really find what we wanted so we decided to make it ourselves. Tristan loves to build things so this is right up his alley.

Well, I don't have anything inspiring today...............sorry. I'm just not feeling too inspired. I'm sure as the light returns and the weather stays warmer I will come out of hibernation and find inspiration again.
