04/01/2008: "Weekend Photo Blog"

Saturday was sunny and beautiful here in Juneau Alaska! We got up early to got to garage sales looking for a bike for Aaron. We found one perfect for him at the second place we stopped!

That afternoon I went for a walk through Treadwell with my friend Maren and that evening, went for a walk downtown on the boardwalk with my honey.

We also stopped at the The Canvas Gallery so I could check out the new space. I thought it would be smaller but there seems to be even more wall space than before. Seeing the beautifully remodeled gallery made me feel that tingling sort of inspiration that only comes with the extreme anxiety of impending doom. The necessary mix that I seem to need to get going.

Walking over to the Hangar on the Wharf for dinner, we watched a beautiful sunset and Aaron took some great photos for me.

So I took some of him. That green house waaaaaay up on the hillside right behind him is the house he grew up in!

It was an absolutely perfect day.

Then the following day it started snowing again so we started working on our wedding rings. It's not as easy as I thought it would be. The one I made for him ended up being too small and cracked in several places when we fired it last night. The one he made for me hasn't been fired yet. The process is really fun though, and we're learning a lot.

stay tuned...

Hi Elaine!
Thank you...

I am soooo happy too!

Life is strange.

And dad, that isn't my tracker behind me, it's a huge black pickup truck, though the gatormobile wheel cover has been gone for some years now.
