Art Intensive and Salmon
This week and last my friend, Stephanie, has been working with Zoey on an art intensive. Both have been reaping rewards. Zoey is so engaged! And it is adding really cool dimensions to all her work. She has been learned about grey-scale, backgrounds, dimension, context, the color wheel and all in a few one-on-one sessions. I cannot wait to see where this goes.
Vivi has had a good time, too. She has been learning to tie flies with Diane and getting to know all the teachers at Mears Middle School. Vivi is so excited the she is one of Diane's students. She loves to feel that she has a teacher, too.
And in other news, the Copper River Red season opened on Monday. To honor that, I cooked wild Copper River coho. It was way on sale! YIPPY! This turned out great. I lightly salted and peppered it, cut some fresh dill, sliced lemons and then put some pats of butter on the fillet. Once it was wrapped in foil, I popped it in the oven to bake. About an half hour later we had delicious, moist silver salmon. Ohhh baby! Raise those omega 3s!
And the news these last weeks. YIKES! Bill Allen pleading guilty (read it here), Ben Stevens on the brink, it might even touch Uncle Ted. Alaska hasn't had a shake-up like this in quite a while.
