Moose (sadly not in the freezer)
It has been the week for moose. We were driving back home and when we turned the corner, this young bull bedded down right next to the road. Luckily he seemed uninterested in chasing the car and took off into the little meadow behind the trees. You laugh, but we've been chased down the road before by a big bull. The car we had at the time was smaller than the moose and the bull was apparently in a really bad mood. (But people laugh about dinner chasing me when I tell them this story.) Moose can be pretty aggressive up here and most Alaskans/Canadians will them a wide berth, we get a couple people every year who get trampled seriously so even though they are delicious and look cute, trying to pet them is a really bad idea. (They are delicious though! I'm missing having a moose in the freezer this year, caribou is better tasting but they're so small compared to the moose, you just don't get as much meat from them. Were just about out of the caribou and fish from last summer, hopefully we'll get a moose this year to fill up the freezer.)
I took a tumble on the ice the other day and messed my knee up, the swelling is finally starting to go down but I'm pretty gimpy. Flats shoes only for me this next week. The sad part was that I was wearing practical shoes with a good tread on them when I fell. Doesn't that just figure!
I really like this skirt but I wish so much that it was just to inches longer. I usually have to wear shorts under it which is a little more effort than I like to put into being appropriate I remember back when the Kardashians first came out with their line and they were talking about this skirt in particular, about it being a great skirt for work! Yeah, who doesn't like wearing a super short skirt to work, that's appropriate pretty much everywhere, right? Sheesh....at least it was really Kheap on Klearance.
