A day with Paul...

Last night, Paul hinted towards having me work with him today----and the ironic thing is I had ALREADY thought of it at one point in the day! No lie :0)

So at the crack of 7:00 { :0) HEY! It was PAUL who said it didn't pay to get up earlier because the morning dew needed to dry off before staining could happen) Paul and I woke up, had some breakfast, took a shower {{Well...ummm......*I* did...not "we"......ummmm...okay......TMI??}} :0)

Isn't the "cabin" gorgeous? So many cabins that Paul and Scot (Paul's head contractor) have built are amazing. All log -- check 'em out if you have the dough to drop for a BEAUTIFUL cabin! --Golden Eagle Log Homes. Scot is a builder for Golden Eagle, and Paul found Scot ....oh.....maybe .... 7 years ago. At this time, it's just the two of 'em, but Scot has been in Canada vacationing, so........the "wife-slave-labor-trade" was resurrected :0)

Today's (and this next week's) plan is to stain the entire place.

Ah...I really didn't mind. The day was gorgeous, and we followed enough shade around the house as we migrated from the front to the back. This is the first day of staining, so Paul and I managed to cover almost all of the deck railing (NOT Scot's favorite thing). Paul and I actually are a perfect system---he's tall enough to do most of everything without a ladder for the outer railing (except for the 2nd level deck on the back), while I am lil' and can sit, bend, kneel to get the inner railings.

I think the rest of this house will be up to Paul and Scot as a team, though.

Beautiful cabin. So nice of you to volunteer to help out. Not as much fun as quilting the day away.....or showering the day away.....
