it wont stop raining....

(the one picture i took during the rainy days)
it rained everyday last week.
saturday it finally cleared up for a bit.
cory and i were excited to get out and walk to the river.
on our way back it started raining again...
like pouring!
it was kinda fun. kinda cold.
we walked a little over a mile in soaking wet clothes.
since saturday it has rained and rained and rained.
when will we get a break?
oh. and poor cory. he is on the river everyday (and night)
one word: overtime.
even if it rains he will still be out with the research team.
after all this rain i am starting to think i have *weather depression*ha. i don't even think it is a real thing.
but i get totally bummed when it rains this much.

that is the sound i make when i am totally bummed.
(or when cory and i are losing at settlers of catan, tyce and rachel understand)
cory makes me happy and we laugh a lot.
i try to be as happy as i can when he is around.
i doubt he would even know that i have been out of it.
he works so hard.what husband wants to come home to a grumpy wife.
i know i wouldn't.
i really just want to be outside taking pictures.
it is quickly becoming a lovely little past time for me.
when i get home i would love to take a class.
till then all i can do is try to take pictures worthy of posting.
wow. i sure am rambling on this post.
i'm starting to think of this blog as more a journal than anything.

cory got the job!

cory got the job he has been wanting for the past month.
he now works with a research team at fish and game.
he loves being able to be on the river everyday.
i am so proud of him.
i love that he gets to do something he really enjoys.
(i also love the paycheck).

a weekend in anchorage.

we decorated cupcakes at the anchorage saturday market.
we are here to SAVE money. so instead of a hotel
we slept in the back of our 4runner.
after a trip to walmart for sleeping bags and pillows
i was so comfy and fell asleep quick.
this little dirt path was our home for the night.3.
cory took me to the biggest water airport in america.
i doubt it is really called a water airport.
but you know what i am talking about.
for planes that take off on lakes.
it was gorgeous.

they like us. they really like us.

well i guess i spoke to soon with my last post.
you've heard of houses being heart attacked.
well cory and i got fish attacked.
as we walked through our mud room to the front door
we were gifted with the presence of a bagged KING SALMON!
it was a huge fish.
seriously. big enough to be a new member of our family.
maybe we'll keep it. give it a name.
what do you think of WAMMON the SALMON?
or maybe well just eat it.
i am grateful for the gesture.
i love that people like us here.
but PLEASE can the next gift be ice cream?

don't judge. you would scream too.

we moved to our new home (for the next two months).
look what treat i found in our fridge.
i screamed. cory laughed.
it was a gift. seriously.
they heard we didn't have any frozen fish.
so they gave us a pike to enjoy.
i am extremely glad no one here knows that i blog.
+ because that fish was in the trash FAST.
its one of those: thank you. but no thank you things.
