About Me

My photo
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 !

Where is the sun ?

It seems the past 4 weeks have forgot it is supposed to be summer and we have had nothing but rain , gloom and cool weather . Occasionally Mr Sun does come out but it seems that the dreary days out number them . We have been camping but it is so hard to admit that the season is coming to an end within the next 6 weeks . I sure hope we get a good Indian Summer here though as we really deserve it ! Last night we had an amazing light show of lightening here ... it lasted for over 4 hrs and it was all kinds from the jagged to the sheet ... and the the rain that came with it was really something . No pictures though as Mr Rebel is in the camera hospital ..........We are loaded and ready to go camping regardless .
It has been a busy summer regardless . Dd & family have been up a number of times and it is great to see our Little Man growing so quickly and now getting active ! Wouldn't be long before the dogs will all be running from him as he will be crawling ! The girls are becoming such little ladies now and one evening we had the 3 granddaughters have a sleepover her ( well DD was here too ! ) . That was a good time but next time Grandpa needs to go away so we can really party ! LOL ! We really have been blessed with great kids and and a full load of grandchildren . We even received more photos of the " lost " granddaughter . She has turned 5 and will be starting kindergarten in September ... hard to believe as she was only 8 months old the last time we got to hold her ....maybe some day she will come looking for us . We do know where she is though and by all indications she is a happy , well adjusted child ............ We still miss the physical contact and it is sad that she will never " know " her cousins as they grow up or her Father ...though he may never grow up ! LOL !!!!! Just kidding but it is a hard situation all around .
Dh is slowly starting to feel better and isn't so tired . He is working long days though and that isn't good but it is his decision and he will have to live with the result of such ! I can't do it for him !!! He plans on sleeping all weeknd in his lawnchair and I am more then happy to let him as I have a book I am reading !!! I have managed to injure my rotator cuff of my right shoulder so have not been doing much except for the necessities ...no scrapping , no stamping and little computer time as it just hurts too much . Physio seems to be helping but it also seems to irritate it ! Gosh , I hate this getting older as everything feels like it is creaking or hurting ...... LOL !

Time to get in that motorhome and bump our way down the road .... hopefully to some sunshine ..............

Have a great weekend and I hope the sun shines where you all are !!!


  1. yah that storm sounded CRAZY LOL. i am so happy you all had a great visit but i am so sorry that you haven't seen your lost granddaughter in soooo long. that is just so sad and i hate that your ds and you and keith haven't got to see her in sooo freakin long. i just don't understand how ppl can be like that? makes NO sense to me. grudges and all of that type of shit is just plain STUPID. When it comes down to it, to what really counts in life, why be so stupid with petty shit (meaning the mom of gd)

    i mean jeez, remember when i said the bad son of imogene? well you know they have had their struggles and differences and neither imogene or the son (edward) handled things very good. now she is dying. i saw edward and willy the other night while visiting imogene and edward was crying so hard saying over and over "I LOVE YOU MAMA, YOU KNOW THAT RIGHT?" over and over. it broke my heart so bad because i know she loves him and he loves her, yet they both wasted so many years being pissed off at each other over stupid shit. i hope and pray that one day, ONE DAY the mom of your gd will come around and not be so stupid and spiteful.

    i love you donna, and you are a great friend and i know that it hurts so bad to know that you have a gd out there that you can't hold or see. i hope that she comes looking for her dad and for you guys and all of her wonderful cousins

  2. ps: sorry for the book LMAO
