So, where have I been lately??? I returned back to work and I've been so busy. Between Ellie getting sick and all the new arrivals to Barrow it's been tough to get some inking time in. It's a balance isn't it? I thank God for giving me a family and friends that are such a help and full of understanding. Not only that but His strength to get me through it all.
Instead of stamping lately I have been trying to spend more time with my family. We actually had time to get in a few walks while the weather has been cooperating. Here's a couple of snap shots of our last outing. We started out on the road and then decided to trump over the tundra to the beach. We never made it to the beach because it took too long to get through the marshy areas. What an adventure!!! We spotted a couple of lemmings here and there and I actually captured one with my digital camera. As soon as the little guy spied us he tried to play like he was a big fat blade of glass. It was cute.
I better get going as my day is ready to start without me.
One of the questions that I received after I posted our tundra adventure was on the weather. Right now our weather is running in the 30's and 40's. We've had rain, snow, and fog lately. The snow that has fallen hasn't stuck. From late May to mid October we have our better weather where the snow melts. The ice in the ocean tends to stick around most the summer. It just recently went out and now we are expecting our yearly barge visit. The night we went on our walk it was in the 30's. It wasn't too cold but we did cut our walk short because little Ellie's face was getting cold and she didn't like having her head completely covered. I don't blame her... there was lots to see!
