Cool frost pictures

Just some cool pictures I took this week of the deep frost up at Bill's house. The frost pieces were so big, and in long strings. It was really beautiful.


The center of the picture is our friend and business partner Bill, his son Josh is on the right. This was at the cabin that they and Justin rented last week up in the woods above Cooper's Landing. I guess it was a really neat little old cabin, rented out by the forest service. They rode in, or tried to anyway, on snowmachines. They had a little trouble. Then they got up the next day to go ice fishing, but the wind was blowing about 40 mph across the lake, so they just came home. They were disappointed they didn't have more fun, and they had so much trouble with the snowmachines. The one machine quit working about 1/2 mile from the cabin, and so they had to tow it in, and all the way out. bummer! The rest of the pictures are taken from the night before, as Justin was packing.
The ever vigilant, ever present Mya.
The top of Two's head.
Look how sad Mya is that Justin is leaving. She was so worried.
Still sad and worried.
up close and personal with Two.
Still sad. funny dog.

Here's a better picture of Two. She's got a true lab square head. I so wish she hadn't been malnourished as a pup, she would have been much larger!

you can kind of see how big her paws are. Maybe she'll grow into her body yet. :)

What to say

I guess I should update our blog, seeing as its been a while. I don't really have much for uplifting fun stuff to say. Except our goats are getting big and pregnant. That's fun. Other than that, we're just living. Been doing a lot of driving and phone work getting all mom's medical stuff arranged, and talking to doctors and stuff. Then trying at the same time to run Extreme Tubing, and start our own business and fill out the 1 inch bid packet, and locate machines, find someone who actually knows what they're doing, and figure out how to get it all done in the next week or so.

One nice thing today was taking 2 huge bags full of wrong sized clothing to the local helping hand store. That felt really good, and it was only about half of what I need to get rid of. It was so nice to get it out of the way, so I could get the clothes that fit into the closet. That's always nice.

Well, I just wanted to let you all know that we're still here, and so far hanging in.
