About Me

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 !

Life such as it is .....

With more bumps then smooth sailing lately it will be nice to just relax and be able to complain that life is boring ! Not sure when that will happen though . DH is still home with his UC and has been trying to get back to work all week which in turn makes him anxious and then he feels worse ! It seems to be a viciuos cycle . His trip to see his brother last week settled his mind as to how Br was doing but with brain cancer being diagnosed and radiation treatments just finished , it is again a waiting game . No family drama happened either while visiting as MIL and SIL behaved themselves .... for the most part ! LOL ! At least DH had one day to visit before M arrived ! The trip alone was hard on DH as sitting for long periods of time just aren't a good thing ...the flight was over 5 hrs with a layover in Vancouver .

DD & family were here for a swim meet on the weekend and it was good to have them here . It was good for DH to have them here when he got home ! The girls swim like fish and they are beautiful swimmers already . I hope they stay with the swimming . Granddaughter #3 lost another tooth while she was here and that one cost Grandma $15 ... I had made a deal with her that if she lost the tooth while they were here that I would give her $5 ....well being the older 2 granddaughters " helped " her loose the tooth I had to give them $5 each as well ! Guess Grandma needs to stop making these deals !!! LOL ! Our little man is growing and such a cutie ! He was weighed yesterday and is weighing in at 13.5 lbs and 23" long at 3 months old . Just a small little guy ! But so happy and he likes to sleep !!! I did manage to throw together a dinner ( thanks to Costco ) for our whole tribe on Sunday night . It is nice to do that in good weather so we can throw open the patio doors and us the patio as well as the kitchen . It is cramped otherwise ! LOL !

The weather has turned HOT here ( 30 C ) and is to stay like that for a few days and then just cool down slightly ! Who was complaining of it being too cold ? We are heading out camping ( if all is well with DH ) on Friday for the weekend .......... so we can use the AC in the MH !!!
