35 degrees

We have been having an odd winter in North Pole.  Last night it was 35 degrees above zero, and raining.  Yep, raining.  The weather man says it will be above zero for the next week.  This makes for poor road conditions but saves on the heating bill.

I like that I can hide inside and work on my art.  I have finished most of the snow on this piece and added a layer to a few of the tree trunks.  Next I will start on the sky, glad to start working with other colors!

MOOSE

I love that it is still daylight at 5 p.m. ! That means I can see things out my kitchen window while washing dishes. This evening I spotted 2 grouse hens in the big pine tree.  I got my camera and was waiting on this girl to show her head. As I was watching the grouse I caught movement out of the corner of my eye, oh yea, A nice young bull moose.  I took a few good/funny pics of him before he went around the side of the house.

As I was loading those pics onto the computer a large furry head passed the front window. Yep, there was mom moose!  Wow, she is a healthy girl.  She led the young guy around to the back of the house where I got this beautiful close-up. Thanks Ms. Moose.

This is why I love living here!
