Alyeska Update

Well, we've just been notified of two things. Number one, our housing ( no food program except 20% discount at restaurants on location) went up by 59 bucks a month. So, for a room in a four-plex its now going to be $579 per month. as of January. Then, they've cut back our hours, hoping for snow or else its going to be real lean. Even our pastry shop is going to be closed at least one day a week.

I'm kinda looking around for other options.

Anyone thinking of applying for work…

a description of my experience in Torrey Utah in the summer of 2012

Red Rock mountains surrounding me,

Bright green Quaking Aspens shaking when the wind blows.

Red, Yellow and white Tulips standing tall atop their green stems,

Sitting outside enjoying the view of the little town of Torrey At Cafe 

Diablo, a yellow house like restaurant, that is bustling with excitement, 

from the cooks to the waitresses and the customers enjoying their food

with gusto. Passionate people coming together as a team to make…

This Amazing Sun Written By: Alice Z

As the sun rises from the East,

The sun also sets in the west,

The golden yellow and orange fiery sun,

Beams with delight from morning till night,

As we rise with the sun, it awakens us each day with God's glory.

As the sun sets in the horizon,

We also settle in and get cozy and cuddle next to our loved ones.

The Sun, 

It is an amazing object of mystery,

Brings us light into our life,

Making us feel warm and…

Friday evening long walk home written By: Alice Z

Friday evening

Walking home from work at dusk,

Full moon shining above,

Planet Jupiter shining bright in the night sky,

Cool breeze blowing through the fields of yellow grass,

Windy whispers of soft howling in the long walk home.

I experience a great sense of peace and serenity, and calm

while the darkness of the evening sky sets in.

This is what it feels like in the wonderful town of Torrey.

Bryce Canyon Night Hike Images of Bryce Canyon at Night

As the night moves in, the moon lights up the dark blue sky,

The stars glitter in the far distance of the vast space above us,

The trees are a dark silhouette from the moon shining above 

The deep dark canyon,

The night is quiet and still with a slight breeze that makes the tree 

Leaves flutter with a soft serene sound that makes me feel 

peace in my heart and soul.

Nature poem written by Alice Z

I perfume the air around me, 

And I bloom in the spring and summer,

I am colorful like a rainbow, and I get sucked on for my

Sweet smelling nectar,

I grow tall when the rain falls on my pretty bright petals, and 

I fall apart when it is too hot,

My seeds blow in the wind and grow again next summer,

For all to enjoy my pretty bright colors and smell my sweet fragrant essence.

What Am I? 

I Am A Flower.

Poem written by Alice Z.

I flitter and flutter from flower to flower,

I spread my wings wide to show off my stained glass colors,

I suck the sweet juicy nectar from the pretty petaled flowers,

I sit pretty and flutter my wings to fly high and seek all blossoms,

To suck on to give me the strength beneath my wings,

To soar as high and far as I can go.

What Am I?

I Am a Butterfly.

Yellowstone Poem

Spring is in the air

Flowers are everywhere,

Rainbows in the sky, makes me want to fly high in the sky,

Birds a chirping, 

Bears a growling,

Bison snorting and charging,

Big Horn sheep grazing in the fields,

Deer and Elk chewing  grass,

wolves a howling at the moon,

Moose are wandering in the lakes,

Chipmunks creeping and crawling in the forest scavenging for tidbits of food,

Eagles soaring high into the bright and…
