The blog has been quiet for the last couple days. I feel kind of guilty because I know people come and check here every day, but life interferes. I have been busy working on my Ugruk, cutting and drying the meat, rendering oil, and getting it all put away. Plus it has been so nice out that I just don't want to stay inside. AND....to top it all off is my foot.
On the 3rd of July I got a splinter in my foot. Nothing serious, just a little piece of wood. I dug it out myself, cleaned it up, put some ointment on it and slapped a bandaid on, end of story, right? Nope. Yesterday I had to have an abscess lanced on my foot. The local anesthetic for the procedure was one of the top ten most painful things I have experienced ever.
So, I apologize for my absence. I have a few posts in the works that will be coming up soon, including a couple more posts with pictures from the Kotzeue's 4th of July celebration.
