Keeping Busy While Dad is Away
Amazing, Dad is gone most of the day, most days, and yet when he is out of town Bear and I find it difficult to fill the same span of time....hmmm, the Daddy aura is missing.
With Yukon still in SLC at his VA training and visiting Wolf, Bear and I have accomplished no small amount of tasks, however. This morning we switched out the summer and winter gear from our "Outdoor Closet" downstairs. Now we are truly prepared for the snow that we know is forthcoming. The temperature is a chilly 34 right now at 11 a.m. and the clouds up on the Chugach range are glowering at us.
With such weather we felt it necessary to have our customary "Crummy Day" breakfast of pancakes, shaped like gingerbread men. Always a hit, especially when Dad's away.
