Goth face

Good Start

It’s only 10:30 am here and already I’m feeling rather accomplished. Last night I slept with my curtains open to let the light of the nearly full moon creep into my room. I even looked out my window before going to bed to see if I could catch a glimpse of the moon and I was not disappointed. Not only was it a beautiful bright moon but there was a large white ring that went all the way around. It was almost like a giant halo. This morning I woke up feeling rested and Toby let me sleep in until 8 o’clock before getting agitated to get fed and go outside. While he was outside I wrote down the dream I remembered from last night and had some breakfast. I then made the bed and tidied up in the living room a bit and it’s looking a whole lot better. Then I thought that it would be nice if I could get some fresh air going in the house and I thought that the bedroom window might have thawed enough to open. With a little bit of coaxing I got it open and let the fresh air into the bedroom. I was always able to get the little windows in our living room open but not the bedroom so I’m very pleased about the prospect of getting some fresh air in there, even if it is cold air. With the wind hitting my face through the window as I chipped the last few remnants of ice off, I thought that it would be a nice day to get the dog poop cleaned up from out in front of the house. I finished up my de-icing, closed the window until there was just enough to let a bit of air in without freezing the house and headed out to dog poop land! I have to admit the wind was kind of cold on my face but I got it all cleaned up and not only does it look a lot nicer out there but I also feel good for getting done.

Last night Bro called me from Iqualuit and told me that the neighbour’s dog had a seizure that day. He and Toby were fairly exposed to one another (especially when one of them escaped from their ropes) and it got me a bit worried for Toby. Of course at this point there’s no telling what could have been the cause and since there’s no vet here they have to fly him down to Winnipeg to have him checked out. I really hope he’s ok and that whatever caused the seizure isn’t contagious.

Toby spent a lot of time with me in the house yesterday. He’s getting much better at behaving inside which makes me happy. I think he’s getting more used to being out and around so it’s getting to be more routine and boring, giving him less reason to go crazy. It tends to tire him out a bit more too and he’s generally quieter through the night… although he does tend to get fidgety at some points. One thing that he kept doing while he was in the house was eat the dirt from one of my plants. Not only did that annoy me but it also made a mess as he’d leave little trails of dirt all along the living room carpet. So Mr. Plant has been relocated to the bedroom and although the living room looks a little barer than it did before, the bedroom looks really nice with the plant there and it’s on top of a table out of puppy reach… I hope.

I’ve been thinking about my journals and how I’ve been really consistent with them using the computer instead of writing. I’m thinking that’s because I can type so much faster than I write. Although I like the idea of writing things down I find that I get frustrated because I can’t keep up with my thoughts when writing whereas I can keep up much better when typing. So I’m thinking that I’m just going to get some duotangs and start printing off my entries (which I’m doing already) and instead of cutting and pasting them into an actual journal I’ll put them directly into the duotangs. I’m sure I can find another use for the extra journals that I have. Right now I’m just finding it really time consuming trying to cut and paste everything since I seem to write more than I paste!
