Living the cottage life, Alaskan style!

Could it be.... the Sun?

It doesn't take much to get us excited.  Take the sun.  A little bit of sunshine goes a long way when you live in Alaska!  It doesn't matter if it's summer, winter, fall, or spring. We see it, and we have to take a picture of it!

We're always happy to see the sun.... but not so much the dust that you see when the sun decides to shine....  or the little fingerprints...or the piles of dog hair that have found some special place to rest.

It's hard to describe how we feel when we see the sun peaking through the clouds.  It's.... it's like the frosting on the cake.... being on the receiving end of a great big smooch from my grandson.... seeing the sweet smile of my grandaughters....

As you can see, it doesn't take much to get us excited.... A ray of sun here, a ray of sun there.
You might think, "how sad for them...." but look at the joy a little sunshine brings us!  It's the silver lining in an otherwise dark and dreary day! 
It's raining today, but at least it isn't snowing. Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow.
