If I were hung with a new rope……………………

Well, I’m in Alaska again and it is raining, again. Funny how, when there is no rain, it is craved for and when there is it is despised. [at least on my part] I can’t go out in the down pour I will get cold and be miserable. Oh well,…….. if I were hung with a new rope………

The 150% humidity leaves me breathless and not wanting to run around much. It is sure green though and much easier on the eyes than the brittle hues of orange and gold we left in Montana. I haven’t been idle since I’ve been here, internet here is slow and iffy, making the downloads of much-needed programs and updates a challenge. I didn’t need to download anything when I left Montana – or so i thought. The program that I updated and installed on my new computer did not install completely – hence, the download. What have I to complain about? I am in a beautiful place and have a new computer ….. if I were hung with a new rope……..

The cat is glad to see us and is hanging around a lot. The horse a.k.a. dog is excited to see a new face too. His one focus is to fetch and will till the ball is lost or worn out. Children are more or less glad to see us, It’s only been a few weeks since they were in Montana so their lack  excitement is understood.  They do recognize.  us though and didn’t run and hide. That is always a plus.

I made supper last night of beef/cheese enchiladas, black beans and corn. That is always a hit, I don’t do seasoning out of a store-bought jar or foil pack, I use things that are more authentic. And, contrary to local  thoughts, HOT is not the goal, it is flavor.

Tonight I made potato soup. A very easy and inexpensive meal made of few ingredients.

The silvers have run, the peak was a week or so ago. We might be able to catch one, then I would have to cook it.

The watermelon berries and blue berries are on, Then I would have to make jelly. …….if I were hung with a new rope……..

The rain is enforcing a rest that is much-needed and yet …………… if I were hung with a new rope……..
