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 !

Angels - explained by children

Angels Explained By Children
I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.-Gregory, 5
Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it -Olive, 9
It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.-Matthew, 9
Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.-Mitchell, 7
My guardian angel helps me with math, but he 's not much good for science.-Henry, 8
Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!-Jack, 6
Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead.-Daniel, 9
When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado.-Reagan, 10
Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.-Sara, 6
Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.-Jared, 8
All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.-Antonio, 9
My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.- Lynn , 9
Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.-Vicki, 8
What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.-Sarah, 9

thanks Louise for the giggle !

And so the saga continues ..................

Farewell to Tigger the cat ! All 22 lbs of him . Unfortunately he went ballistic and tried to eat the son's leg and we were afraid he would turn on the dogs next . The son is on meds for the bites and scratches and the cat has gone over the rainbow bridge . We will miss him but not the cat hair ! All this while DH and I were taking a few days away ...... it is getting so we can't go away that something doesn't happen ! Uggg ! Dh & I went to Salmon Arm for a visit with my good friend Lisa and her husband . Unfortunately her husband had to head off to work out of town so we only visited briefly with him . We did have a nice visit with Lisa and Brayden and went to Boston Pizza for supper with them . Next time we head in that direction we hope to spend a bit more then 18 hours in the area ! Then on to visit MIL for a couple days . I think I was hoodwinked into going ............ with BIG promises of a holiday further south ( which we never made it that far ! ) ! DH wasn't feeling great so we actually headed up to Kamloops for a day to just do whatever . Their shopping sucks as bad as it does here though ................... never even bought anything :-( Was nice to get out of Winterland for a bit though ! We came back and a LOT of snow had melted though it will still be a few weeks before it is completely gone here . DH has spent the past few days in bed as the trip wasn't the best idea for him !
This morning DH had a meeting with the specialist and is being booked for surgery ( probably towards the end of May , early June ) . The surgery wouldn't be as evasive as we first thought but the recovery could still be up to 2 months or more .... depending on what they find when they get in there too ! Chrone's Disease sucks regardless to any way you look at it ! The good news is the drs feel the surgery will " cure " a lot of the pain and problems and may never reoccur ! I sure hope so as the past 2 years have been a nightmare . Maybe next year we will get on that BIG motorhome trip to the Yukon as all holiday plans have been cancelled as of today for this summer . I think we will just park the MH south of town for the summer .... far enough away from home to be relaxing ( though they are doing bridge and road work right there so it may NOT be quiet ! ) but close enough if we need to get home quickly .
I am trying to get refocused and do some of my hobbies . I have done a few cards but seem to be more sitting reading then anything ! I can hardly wait until it is warm enough to sit on the deck and read .... then I can use that as an excuse NOT to do anything inside ( because who wants to be inside when it is nice outside ? LOL )
Have a grat week and may the sun shine on you all week and make you smile !
