Ok, so my laptop has been in for repairs for a week now, so I'm unable to post and download all my wonderful pictures recently. What excitement has been going on in Stacie's world you ask?!?! Well, got the dogs out for the first run this season. Amazingly, they all remembered what to do. I actually don't know HOW they found the trail as we've never run in grass that was over their heads before... ah, but it's all about experience! Ripper and Loki were super in lead, well, except for the part when Loki doubled back around me and wrapped his tuglines around my legs. Nothing like being pinned by one freaky dog and two cowdogs hyper to get going!
I'm also proud to announce, that the other day, I started off Yukon "No Injury" Day, Tuesday Sept. 2 with a BANG by dropping a gigantic metal fence post on my hand at 6:30 am. So much for no injuries! Boy I sure don't waste time with some things... I even have the bruise and puffy hand to prove it.
Oh yeah, so here's a post from a ways back. I'm pretty sure I didn't post it or anything similar, but if I did, would anyone really notice? Or care?? God, my floor was clean then, hahahahahaha. Ahem. Ok, it looks nothing like that now.
Prepared to be dazzled people. I painted my floor last weekend. I know, I know, contain your excitement though, the pictures are here.
Yep, same colour as before. Ooh! And I got that new under-the-stove-board-thingy. Much better than the old tin with the sticky-uppy pieces that I always forgot about and stepped on anyways.
Um, mom - avert your eyes... NOW!
Ok, so here is what it's like to paint half of the cabin. Sucks to paint when you're living in it.
I painted this then attempted to go for a bike ride and realized I forgot my helmet inside on the couch. In that rubbermaid container on the couch, isn't that where all cyclists keep their helmets? So I had to step VERY lightly on the freshly painted floor. And then retouch that part. Then, I realized I had no iPod. Back over the freshly painted floor to the kitchen table (NEW kitchen table btw!). One more retouch. Okayyyy, I'm ready to go... no, crap! Where's my water bottle... argh! Back over the retouched paint, more retouching... all in all, the floor is dirty again as the dogs and I track dust all over it, so really, why did I paint at all?
Speaking of the dirtiest dog in the world - Lucy could have easily been born a pig!
She's clean on HER NEWWWW DOG BED though. They are a hit amongst the local canine population (although they much rather prefer sleeping upstairs with me)
More floor that was once clean.
Harris kinda needs a bigger bed, but he's not one to complain much. Oh that dog kills me. He's the sweetest thing ever. He only kind of growls at the puppies, but only so I can barely hear it. He's quite tolerant for the most part yet still has his squirrel hunting obsession.
