Memorial Day 2010

Whales, Eagles Sea Lions and Bears - Oh My!

Bob and I spent our Memorial Day at Sunshine Cove this year, watching whales play.  When the day started we weren't sure where we were going to end up when the day first started.  We drove out the road and there were so many cars and people (of course), but as we drove back, discussing where to go, we saw a whales tainl and that was it, decision made.  We parked the truck, sat along side the road for a bit, then Bob found a way down to the beach and that's where we stayed.

Whale - we didn't bring our camera with a lense, so no close ups, but we watched them all day, it was pretty cool.

Cooling off.

Bob went for a little walk and watched the whales play.

We think that there were also sea lions playing too.

These guys used this tiny little boat to check their crab pots.  We watched them bring in some crab and them woot and hollar as the crabs snapped at them.

A new design

I figured that I better get those raindrops off of our blog since it has been so warm and sunny here. 

There are nine days of school left and one big project is out of the way, now onto the eighth grade dance. Last week was GPS (Goals for Personal Success) for our eighth graders and I do some coordinating for that.  It did almost defeat me, I ended up sick, might have something also to do with the clouds of pollen blowing around, and have roughly 5 cold sores all over my lips.  It has sent me home early two days this week and I am seeing what it plans to do with my weekend.  The one in which I need to get things done for the dance!  Anyway, you know I am sick if I miss work.  I have slept roughly 35 hours in 2 days and could still use some more.  Not to mention that fact that it is beautiful out and I would rather stay tucked under the covers.  Bob was also sick this week and our Adam friend too.  We all need to get better so that we may enough the lovely days.

Happy Mothers' Day!

I have been truly blessed to know some many wonderful mothers.  To all of you, thank you for all you have taught me, you are the most incredible women and I am blessed to have you in my life.

To my own mommy - I can't wait until we are "together again".  I miss my mom and wish we weren't so far apart, but I blame that on you . . . you raised us to believe that we can do anything and so here I am thousands of miles away and grateful for the woman that you are.  No, I am not crying, my eyes are just a bit watery.  I love you mom.

Frist Day in the Shop . . .

Today was the first day since the cruise ships started to roll into town that I was in the gift shops interacting with tourist.  And wouldn't you know it on day one . . . "has Sarah been in lately?".  Okay, so I know what he means, but here is my poor employee, her first day, and I can see that she's thinking "do we have a Sarah who works here?".  Anyway . . .
Come on, first if she was still our Governor, it would be Governor Palin, NOT Sarah!!!  Second SHE QUIT - she is no longer our Governor, never liked Juneau and is probably gallivanting around the country overcharging at events that she speaks at!!!!!!!!!!  Seriously, it is day one for me, don't even get me started!
On a happier note, all of our employees seem to be good, it's a nice start to the season.
