My patience has been rewarded!!

Just because I have nothing better to do while sitting in the airport, I thought I'd give it one more try, and ta-DAAAAA!!! Uploads!

Here's the back of the house. Yeah, I know you've seen the back of the house before, but here it is again.

James felt the need to be the first to stake a claim to my loft. Nice try, boy-o.

I've let both of the guys come into My Loft. How sweet of me!

James is staking a claim on pretty much every room of the house - he wants the loft, he wants the master bedroom (because it's attached to the master bathroom, which has a very cool triangular bathtub), he wants the downstairs bedroom because it would make a nice office... Finally he did make a choice about which room he will actually get - his bedroom. Here he is, proclaiming it his own in a very Captain Morgan kind of way:

Our first meal in the new house was a pan-seared tuna steak and steamed veggies, followed by watermelon.

Moving in!!

This dock actually belongs to our neighbors, but the guys borrowed it just briefly.

Me and James on the back deck.

One of Friday's nine moose. The little girls up the street said one walked down our street on Saturday, but we didn't see it ourselves. There sure is a lot of moose poop in the back yard, though, so I'm sure eventually we'll look out a window and see one right up close.


  1. My first explicit attempt at imitating the tuna tataki from Ko. Needed the fresh pepper :). Actually, I've settled on the bedroom, and my new cave.

    Side note, how funny is it that we're communicating digitally, though we're right next to each other.

    Would you PLEASE stop hogging the bench???

    Deanna, how'd he end up with a room AND a roomlette again?

    Well, at least this means we get to charge him more rent.

  4. WHOA! Where is the picture of Jim carrying Deanna across the threshold? Huh?? Huh? And a romantic one of the two on the back deck? Hmm... and I've always wondered, can you kiss a moose?

    We didn't commemorate that moment in photograph, sadly.

    Don't think I'd try kissing a live moose. Good way to get stomped to death.

    That was a great (if very brief) trip. Not enough time to do anything one usually goes to Alaska to do (fish, float, fly, hike, camp, etc) but we got in some time in the new digs so it won't be a great unknown during the drive up.
