How can it be the end of August already ? We never even had summer for all of August and it has done nothing but rain and be gloomy ! But life goes on regardless and we are going to go camping this weekend regardless to the weather . It is a LONG weekend after all !!! LOL !
So first off , Happy Anniversary to my parents for tomorrow ... 56 yrs ! Wow , that is a LONG time ......... Congratulations and know I love you both so very much . Distance doesn't make a difference as I am there with you in my thoughts .... and will see you in October !
A HUGE Happy Birthday to my older sister for the 1st !!! Thank you for all you do ...and I don't have to tell you what that is ....just wait for the doorbell to ring for a surprize ... and no it isn't me ( tried that once and just about gave everybody a heart attack and don't do that with the age everybody is getting to now ! LOL ) ..... all I will say , is the surprize will smell pretty !
August has brought some very good news too ...and we could use it with all that has happened this year ! BIL has had his brain cancer go into remission ! That is a miracle but after radical radiation it is everything we all hoped for . Now if they could just get the cancer in his stomach to go away ........... BUT miracles do happen ! Who knows , he may outlive us all ...we can only hope ! MIL had a brain tumor many years ago , went to Sweden and had the gamma knife ( ray ) done and her's has never completely gone away but it hasn't grown either .... and she is 86 yrs old ( think ) ....her sister is 99+ this year though longevity runs in the female side !
Dh is struggling daily with health issues but is back to work full time . We are hoping to take another week off soon to go camping for one relaxing holiday before it is time to pack the MH away for the season . I am having rotator cuff problems so have been going to physio trying to get some strength back into it ....which limits what I can do or for how long . I did manage a couple scrapbook pages and a couple cards this week though ............ it has been a challenge just to sit for any length of time at my desk . So many supplies and no mojo .............. does not make me or DH a happy camper ! More supplies coming in then I will use in a life time ! LOL !!! Oh well , those 100 pocketbooks sitting here are getting read at least !!! I am working on #4 already this week ! Crappy weather certainly helps too !
Happy Labour Day everybody and I hope the sun shines for you ! I figure we had September weather in August so we should get August weather in September ....RIGHT ? Play safe and enjoy your families and the end of summer !

- 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 !
