6 day weekend…


School was closed Wed-Fri this week due to the icy road conditions.  things just keep melting.  Parts of Anchorage have been registering temps around 50.  It is crazy. 

The kids have been enjoying this unexpected break, we have all stayed up too late, tonight we watched a movie together.  Ok, the kids watched, I fell asleep.  But, we were in the same room together.  Quality family time.

We have had another dog with us this week, and that has been fun.  Her name is Osa, and she is darling, as little and skinny as Entropy is big and thick.  Aside from one tussle over a biscuit, they have gotten a long really well, even taking a run around the neighborhood together to chase a moose.  Tracking them down was the best cardio workout I have had in a long long time.  It is amazing what running on ice will do for your core, all that twisting and turning and trying to stay upright.  Who needs Pilates?

Anyway, here is a picture of the little girl dog.  She is a cutie.  Right at the back of her head she has a cow-lick and her hair is always sticking up a bit.  I think that is my favorite part about her. 


Okay, here is another one, in this picture you can see the little tuft of hair sticking up right between her ears at the top of her head.  Darling.sleepy-osa


I’ll take another picture of the house and lack of snow tomorrow. 

Osa goes home tomorrow, we will all be a little sad.


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.

  1. With a weekend like that, it’ll be hard to get back into “real life.” Sheesh! Work 1 day, play 6, I could get into that! 😀

  2. Awwwww! That is one CUTE dog! Let me know if her owners forget to pick her up…you know how we’re always on the look-out for unclaimed animals.
