Dupont Trail

Monday and Tuesday are mine and Bob's weekend.  Today when we woke up it was sunny and warm out.  Normally we head out the road, but since I had to work for a few hours this afternoon, we headed out Thane Road.  Here's Bob at the first waterfall on the trail.

 The view.

Catch of the day . . .

Bob and I went out to Amalga Harbor today.  It wasn't sunny, but it was a warm day.  Bob fished and I made a little fire and read.  Some pics from the day . . .

Afterwards we raced back to the Valley to watch Despicable Me.  It was cute.  Now a bit of couch time to end the day.

Our 4th of July

The parade . . .

Watching the fireworks from our bed . . .

We didn't actually see the parade, we both had to work.  I was downtown and last year their was no one in the store, so I stood outside and watched.  This year, we were crazy busy and I let our employees enjoy the parade, so they took a few pictures for me.  The family on the bike have been biking all over the US and are from Kentucky.

As for the fireworks, we fell asleep and then were woken up at midnight by the sound of the fireworks.  This year, we could see them from our bed!  What a way to watch them.

Why I love Old Navy

Because I can order clothes that don't cost me a small fortune and when they come they actually fit!

Somethings I learned and was reminded of this week . . .

I learned that . . . .
I like to have some time to myself to rejuvenate.  I don't normally stop, so this is a revelation.  It may be time to start listening more to that inner voice of mine.
it's okay to not be constantly working.  That's huge for me, let's face it, I am a workaholic and it's hard to break that habit.
It's nice to have the time to cook and prepare my meals, paying attention to what I am eating.  Then having the time to clean up and keep everything put away.

I was reminded that . . .
I am married to a wonderful, caring man, whom I adore.
My mother is a Saint and I am not sure why she still takes my calls.
I have the best BFFs in the world.  I love them and miss them.
I have meet some truly incredible people in Alaska.  This place is a blessing.
I really enjoy scrapbooking and getting our pictures into albums, finished another this week.
I enjoy waking slowly, drinking coffee, reading the paper and making breakfast.
I enjoy having time to reconnect, write letters, and talk to those I love.  I have been horrible about sending cards and gifts, something I used to be so good at.  I am going to work on this.
I enjoy having the time to blog.  I always have all these ideas, but never seem to find the time to keep this blog up.  I am going to try and make the time to do this.

I am taking baby steps to stop being a workaholic and let go, it feels good, Bob is right.
