What a beautiful evening. It was 45 degrees F. That's sure nice for Alaska in early April. The sun felt warm and snow is melting. I see that the squirrels have chewed my clothesline. I don't mind much. It isn't hard to fix and the winter is long. Can't get to it yet anyway. More snow has to go first. I can tell that Spring is on her way. The birds are happily chirping. The large flies are hatching out up against the sunny side of the house and there are giant mud floodles (huge puddles) forming during the day.
James cuddled with Ratty today on the couch. They're buddies. Rats actually make very good pets. They aren't as smelly as many rodents. They're smart and aim to please. We don't have them up here naturally so I'm not used to them being vermin. We've seen three wild hares in the last few days. The peninsula here is very much overpopulated by the Snowshoe Hare. I really like to see them jump because with their extra long feet they can jump both high and far. Here's James and Ratty.
In the winter sometimes the sunrises surpass the sunsets. Here is a January sunrise from the backdoor.
Hope everyone has a Happy and Blessed Easter. He is risen!
