Spring Snowstorm

06 Apr

Photo:  A spring snowstorm blew in this morning and made everything look like a milk bottle.  This is the road as you enter onto the lake. 

Photo:  My husband braved the weather today and was able to get most of the framing done for the classroom (thank you Ken).  It’s a 12′ x 12′ space which I’m so grateful to have.

Photo:  The ice road across the lake is almost unrecognizable now that it’s turned to slush.  6-8 inches of water (overflow) floats on top of the ice now.  We should have a few more days to get things done before it’s time to stay off the lake.

Today I made progress by gathering things we’ll need for summer.  We made our annual trek to the mill and feed store to get Crocs and flip flops for everyone (thank you Kelly).  We also procured a few lake essentials:  rain boots for puddle jumping, sunscreen for those scorching hot summer days (yeah, right), and water shoes to keep the leeches off our feet and protect our tender toes.  

Another big accomplishment was getting connected to the outside world today.  We now have our land line working and internet connection (thank you Tasha).  No tv service though…bummer.  Actually I love the idea, but my husband may have withdrawals.  We mostly use our cell phones there, but the service is not reliable.  It’s nice to have the permanent line for emergencies and of course those long-winded conversations with my sister.  Perhaps we will try the webcam and Skype this summer to keep in touch with family and friends.  Last but not least, we officially appointed a mascot (thank you LA) for our new adventure.  Buddy the Bear.  You will see a lot of Buddy this summer, so stay tuned…

    Thanks Ennis. Life is good. You know it’s a process and I’m just following the bread crumbs. I’m not sure where this path will lead, but I can honestly say that I’m enjoying the journey. Please check back often and stay in touch. It will be a lot of fun to hear from you and our LA mates. 🙂
