No nakedness, just nachos, in the kitchen
So yesterday I helped out Gwen and the first-ever Renewable Energy Fair at Chena Hot Springs. The weather was crap but there was a great turnout considering the rain and the fact that it was an hour out of town. I ran a little bagel kiosk. It was actually really fun. I've never been a waitress or server before so to do it for one day was good. Plus, everyone was in a really great mood and therefore so was I. Even when they shut off my power (at the energy fair, go figure) and I could no longer toast the bagels or make coffee or tea, people still came around to chat. I learned a valuable lesson yesterday: sometimes, not often but sometimes, it's fun to be nice to people.
My friend Kelly the Crowe from Whitehorse got married this weekend. She got hitched. She tied the knot. She's got (or has become) the ol' ball and chain. I'd put a picture of the wedding on the blog, but I fear a letter bomb from Whitehorse would follow. Can I say bomb on the blog? This person who lives here got her blog flagged for cursing too much and when her boyfriend tried to access it at a public library from down south, he couldn't. A message came up that said the site was too explicit, or something like that. I wonder if my blog is flagged? For what, I don't know.
The cabin is coming along. Unfortunately we have water coming in along the beams that join the upstairs balcony to the house. Believe me, I already had a little meltdown when I went to prepare the logs for treatment and saw the water. But, it's not much and it's an easy fix. Tom and I worked for 14 hours on Saturday cleaning the logs and getting the first coat on the upstairs. That's the first of three coats and now I'm doing it alone, so it's going to take FOREVER. I'm hiring someone to do the downstairs because painting the walls, ceilings and floors WITH A FOAM BRUSH (to avoid the bubbles a roller would create) will take a lifetime. So Painter Pete will come this week with his skookum spray gun and blast the inside of the cabin. I'll finish the upstairs however, so that should keep me busy for a few days.
I hope. That's the plan, anyway.
The dogs are good. Here are some pics of Sister. She likes to beat up my boys. She took down Sneaky Pete, Bull and Strider in one fell swoop. They had no idea what hit them, but they sure did run away quickly. I knew I'd like her.
Here's Sister licking her chops after taking a big bite outta Bully's arse.
This is Daphney (and Bull, he's such a camera hog). Daphney is one of the rescued dogs.
