BC, Canada
I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !

We made it through another weekend !

Well after the week we had here , the sun came out and it turned HOT ! Of course this is the weekend we didn't go camping with DH not feeling well , one sick cocker ( but she seems to be getting better and holding her own ! ) and 2 puppies that not only got tattoed ( for ID ) , teeth pulled ( and I think we just paid for a world cruise for the vet on that one ! ) but they got neutered ! How is that for adding insult to injury ! Seems Ryder had low blood sugar in the morning so they pumped him with gloucose before doing the surgury ( at $64 for the bag of gloucose ! ) .... all was well when we picked them up and by today , they were pretty much back to normal . Ryder seems to be walking a little gingerly but I think he is more embarrassed about the shave job they gave him on one leg , one ear and underneath ! Of course , he is the one that has the long thick hair so it really shows !!! I can see a short haircut coming up before to long for him - providing he isn't tramatized by all this !

Seems the bad news just keeps getting worse instead of better . BIL was waiting the results from the chemo he has had for the past while and he got the news on Friday ... not good ! The tumors stopped shrinking and has now started to move agressively . He will find out this week what the next step is to be ... and they say this round of chemo or radiation will NOT be easy and he will be sick with it .... We are thinking of you BIL !

Dh is pretty upset with the news about his Br but as usual , he is trying to be tough and not have it show ... that could be why DH is having a major flare-up ! He can't get into to his specialist though until June 19th- CRAZY !!! Lets hope that will be good news as he remembers nothing of the procedure or what the specialist told him last week .........

Well there are clouds in the sky now and the weatherman is predicting more rain this week , more flooding for the south and DH said we may go camping next weekend .... GO figure ... IT is going to cool down to the mid teens and it is going to rain right through the next weekend .............I hope the weatherman is going to be wrong about the rain .....................
