Addiction : Enthusiastically devoted to a particular thing or activity.
It's so extremely fun going out on the snowmobile. I went out last weekend for a little day trip and took some photos. I plan on going again Tomorrow and Sunday, as long as the weather is nice and predictable ( and I don't get anymore dreams about falling through the sea ice).
Tallinn escaped today. It was heart wrenching. Currently he is sitting on the floor next to me, smiling with that characteristic Malamute smile, it's almost like a grin. "Yeah I ran away, but I am freakin cute and there nothing you can do about it"!
It all started when I walked Nathan to work today. We came outside and the dog was just missing. Normally we have him tied up on a lead that runs on another lead, so he has a large area to run. The main lead over time (and Tallinn pulling) finally gave it's last breathe and snapped. Tallinn then escaped still attached to the other 30 foot lead that was originally chained to the main lead (does any of this make sense?) Anyways he was gone...
I started looking for him on foot but found myself in a total haze thinking about my poor baby ( I know I am total idiot for my dog). Nathan finally took me out in the truck and searched for a bit before out of the corner of my eye, I saw my poor stupid just sitting looking at us. It was hidden at first but soon became more apparent why he was just sitting. He was stuck. The 30 ft lead he was still attached to had tangled itself around a child's bike and while dragging that the bicycle became lodged into a snow bank. His journey was at an end. As happy as I was to see him safe, my thoughts turned to Sunday morning cartoons. I saw a character that would be trying to escape some obstacle, however hindering the escape such character would end up with a bucket on foot, continued by a garden hose and then attached to a bicycle. Thus preventing any kind of escape.
He had a good run and probably enjoyed himself, but for his theft of one child's bicycle, puppy jail time is pending...
Nathan and I just returned from a month of Fun in the Sun. Well not exactly. When we were in North Bay it was a balmy -30, but at least I had some trees.
We had a great time with our families and I managed to explode a hole in Nathans Wallet the size of Texas! We actually had to purchase 2 new suite cases and a large rubbermaid container to control the amount of crap I bought (yes I have a problem). Whilst on the subject of Rubbermaid, did you know that's how Northerners travel in Style? I saw my first Rubbermaid take flight back in June when I departed for my Northern adventure. " Rubbermaid", I thought to myself, "Could this be done?". I knew right then and there that I would have to try this experience for myself and when buying another $60 suite case just wouldn't "jive" we opted for the only other way to travel: RUBBERMAID. It was an exhilarating experience I have to admit, however when the security woman threatened to cut off the web of silver duct tape holding the lid to the body, I panicked. (Everything worked after Tallinn (doggie) worked his charm all over her and she had no time for rummaging through our crap and passed it through.)
I guess I should probably talk about what we did in the South, but I figure this is a Nothern only blog and most of you who are reading it already know what we did. So here is a sum up; On our trip out to the south my true love and I;
12 Liters of beer, 11 Starbucks Lattes, 10 Macdonald's Breakfasts, Another 9 Starbucks Lattes, 7 Hours of just going down water slides, (Great Wolf Lodge, try it) 6 Stuff Crust Pizzas, 5 Times to the Dog Park (where Tallinn was humped multiple times) 4 Times shopping in the States 3 Times asked where Nunavut was (or in the case of the boarder guard "what" Nunavut was) 2 Lemon Drop Martinis with Lush Face Masks
I moved to Nunavut 3 years ago with my husband and Alaskan Malamute. Here we started raising our first daughter Ezri and shortly before we left, became pregnant with our second.
As every journey has an end, we found ourselves back south again, dreaming of returning north one day. Please read about my adventures and continue to feel free to send me e-mails.
