My Grandma came up this weekend from Soldotna and it was really wonderful to see her again! It was a rough drive up with the storm but she made it okay - she's a pretty tough lady and everyone was really happy to spend some time with her. She's been really getting into the adult coloring books because her hands hurt too much to knit anymore and she likes to do creative things.  She passed out pages to everyone that she's already filled in and the pictures are so beautiful, they look like works of art and I'm going to frame up ours and hang them.  There's a few Fairbanks artists who put together coloring books so I know what I'll get Grandma for Christmas now!
Most of my siblings  gathered at my parents house most of Saturday to visit with her and have a bbq. (We really don't stop bbq-ing until it hits about zero and even in the middle of winter, if it warms up to -20 below zero, we lit it back up again. Alaskans' perceptions of bbq weather is as long as there's not a blizzard or a rain storm, we bbq.) She's heading back today and we'll miss her so much until we see her again.

  1. Aw, glad you saw your grandma! I wish I'd gotten to know mine better when I was younger...unfortunately that opportunity is lost. Treasure them while you can!
