Fun? Berry much so!

Meg and I went berry picking yesterday to our secret (and VERY plentiful) spot. I must admit, I mostly goofed off with the dog, took pictures, and enjoyed a few sweet hours of not worrying about getting the house finished. It was bliss. And I did get some blueberries, raspberries and cranberries. We didn't see any bear or bear sign, which was good because we had no gun. (all we could find at Margaret's was a pellet gun and I haven't got the gonads to shoot my real gun yet. Not that a .22 would do jack-squat to a bear.) Bully kept the bears at bay. He also rolled around on some really nice blueberry patches and then peed on some others. Maybe he was just trying to help by showing us where they were or maybe he really wanted to go home so he was trying to sabotage the berry-picking fun. Only Bully knows and he's not talking.

The weather has remained cool and rainy. I fear that summer is indeed over. It’s really cool, almost gets down to freezing, at night and we haven’t had sun in some time. Sam says we’ll have one last warm stretch before the snow flies.
This morning Sam and I are going to finish up the electricity and then on Friday, Saturday and Sunday we'll finish the interior treatment and the slate floor. Then the cabin will be ready for a wood stove and cabinets, which should be ready early next week.
Sarah Pallin won the primary for the conservatives last night and Tony Knowles won for the democrats.

Anyway, must get to work.
Peace.

Ya, you forgot to post that picture of you and Bully napping in the berry patches as my fingers bled berry juice trying to put food up for the winter. Oh, the life. Woe is me. Woe, woe, woe. (Is this one of those times my sarcasm comes across as just plain nasty? I gotta work on that.)

Bully will need his woolies soon.

Bully and I were supervising! And scouting for bears. And planes. And...ok ok, we were napping. Did I still get berries? Yes. I did. As for bully's woolies. I put some fleece socks (I don't mean dog booties, I mean my socks) on him last week and he didn't seem to care.
