Art Show

So exciting... I entered my first art show since college. "Ocean themed" works for Kodiak's WhaleFest celebration.

A digital photographic print
Sunrise over Jewel Beach

Graphite drawings
Whale Diptych
(a gray whale and a humpback whale)

The show runs April 21-30

And they're up for sale.
Fingers crossed.

Bloomin' Surprise

Everything is brown and dreary and still cold and patches of snow are still clinging on in spots.

But it is spring!
I have proof!

Take THAT harsh Alaskan winter!

This doesn't bode well for us

On noticing the temperature read-out downtown Saturday afternoon:
"50 degrees, huh? Is it really that warm?"

Heading out on Monday, Joe says "It feels like summer today." It was 56*

Being far away from family is rough.
But reading through this website makes my mom feel a little bit closer.

Ooooh it's true

Daddy Likey

You have to read this blog.
If you aren't already.

I found it this past week, and just came across the Five Men's Fashion First Impressions feature...and it's love at first sight. Brilliant.

This is the only real reason women go to hair salons

So the other week I ask Joe to trim my hair. He gets a completely unabashed look of horror on his face. I anticipated this and quickly reassured him I just wanted a simple trim, nothing fancy, and I believed in him.

Joe: Ok, if you're sure.
Me: Totally. You can do it!

Joe cuts away. Doing a good job. Then I ask if he could angle the front part.

Me: You know, where it's lower in the front than the back.

His eyes light up after a second.

Joe: Yeah! Awesome! Just like Ghost in the Shell!
Me: Umm. No. Not that extreme. Not at all.
