Warm Spring Day in Alaska

This is the view that I see from my kitchen window. I snapped the picture from the roof of our bedroom, which will soon be our new deck. Warren is working hard on building his "Quilt Deck" He is going to make it a Log Cabin design using different colored boards.
Broccoli was instantly in the window, when I decided it is finally warm enough to open up the windows. I'm still ill. My head & chest are congested, but I'm coughing productively, which is better than the dry hacky cough I suffered from earlier in the week.
I spent part of the day working on my May Journal Quilt, & a little bit on the Barn Quilt, & still adding touches to the Sculpin Mask Quilt. I feel rotton & have no ambition, but did sit in a chair in the sun, & added some beads to the mask quilt. That felt nice. It's warm enough today, that by tomorrow I think we'll have leaves on the trees. I always love that spring green!

Hi Deb, sorry to hear you are sick. The deck looks way cool--what a beautiful view. When I told someone I'd love to come to Alaska in the spring they said "Bad time to come. Everybody sick." Here's hoping you feel better soon.

Makes me very nostalgic for the time I was in Alaska. I remember those gorgeous views. Your work is beautiful. Glad you are feeling better.
