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 !

A night to remember

Thanks Kathleen
I lie awake waiting for you.>
As I lie on my bed, thinking about you, I feel this strong urge to grab you and squeeze you, because I can't forget last night. You came to me unexpectedly during the balmy and calm night, and what happened in my bed still leaves a tingling sensation in me. You appeared from nowhere and shamelessly, without any reservations, you lay on my naked body...
You sensed my indifference, so you applied your hungry mouth to me without any guilt or humiliation, and you nearly drove me crazy while you drained me.
Finally I went to sleep.
Today when I woke up, you were gone. I searched for you but to no avail, only the sheets bore witness to last night's events. My body still bears faint marks of your enthusiastic ravishing, making it harder to forget you. Tonight I will remain awake waiting for you......

… you frigging mosquito.

No mosquitos were hurt during this post ! DAMN !!!!

If you are reading this .......

then please leave a comment :-) LOL ! Cousin C on the Island ......... this means YOU !!!! Drop me a note and let me know how you and your family are !

My blog is my blog , a way to pass on news and share my crafting ..... it is not intended as a downer to anybody .... just my person thoughts . I am not great at keeping my BLOG up to date nor am I computer sauvy enough to make it pretty or change it in any shape or form ! It is what it is !!!! Seriously , I love the fancy BLOGS and would love one with the scrap paper , flowers and ribbons but have no idea how to go about changing this thing so will just have to go back to playing with real paper ! Heck , I can't even figure out how to digi-scrap which is pathetic considering I have digi kits , books and the photo editing program for it ! Sheesh .............

Well that is my whine of the week ..................................................


Camping and a countdown .....

Dh was on holidays for a week after our Victoria Day long weekend . Being as he hasn't been well with the Chrone's Disease we decided just to go to our favorite close camping spot at Canyon Creek Campground . Our oldest came down and dropped the truck off so we could leave our motorhome parked for the summer . While there , our granddaughter Courteney got the most comfortable seat in the house and ended up with 2 dogs on her for the duration . Ryder is a Momma's boy and sat on me as he is very shy ! Not Mandy nor Tucker , they just made themselves at home where it was warm ...........................
The week brought a mixed bag of weather , rain , cool nights and just a mile up the road and in PG .... SNOW !!! Hard to believe it is MAY !!! By the end of the week the sky had cleared and we had some warm weather and sun ..... still cool at night though ! We had planned on another campsite but being as we planned on setting up the satellite dish ended up in the same spot as last year ...... and after much frustration , managed to catch the satellite so DH will have his TV all summmer .
Now I know you are asking why one would own a motorhome and end up parking it for the summer and WHY would we worry about TV when we are camping ..... well , first off , this is NOT how we had planned to spend our summer vacation parked just south of home ! BUT DH has a date for his surgery ... June 11th .......... so once he is home and feeling well enough , we are packing up the dogs and heading to motorhome so he can recouperate .... hence the TV ! He will relax away from home far better then being at home where he will want to work in the yard , wash his truck and go to work ! He will have anywhere from 6-12 weeks off work and in that time , he will NOT be able to lift anything ! Guess that leaves me to setting up camp ( though most is done with the MH already parked ) , haul in the laundry and the groceries ! Aught to be a delight :-) LOL ! Am looking forward to June and July just being over ............. not that I really want it over ... just the stress and the unknown ! Please send positive thoughts that this surgery is the answer and that by this time we can make those trips we had planned with the MH this year !!! I think life is going to change around here again ..................................... hopefully for the better !!!
Dh came home from holidays sick again and spent 2 days in bed . i think his staff is beginning to think he just likes extra time off ........ they don't know him very well if they think that ! This is the guy that leaves for work at 3:30 am every morning and works until 5 or 6 pm every night ..... and takes calls at home when he isn't in the office ! Could be why he is sick !!!!! I sure hope this changes after he has his surgery as otherwise he could end up sick again ! I keep telling him that it is the time in his life to start slowing down and getting ready for retirement .Maybe we can call this a trial retirement period !
We are heading down to the camp after work tomorrow for the weekend and I may stay for a day or two after . I don`t mind staying by myself and think I had better get some ME time while I can ......... LOL ! Maybe I will actually find time to read a book or two as I haven`t read one in over a month !!! That has to be a record as I love to read !

time to go relax as Tucker is !
Have a great week !!!! And don`t forget to send positive thoughts :-)

A few bumps to get over

This past couple weeks have been another challenge around here but the sun has come out , the snow has melted and the trees are almost in leaf ! I even have managed to do some cards while trying to relax ! Not an easy task so I have found out . I went to the Dr over my wrist and knee from that nasty fall I took in March and have been suffering from a sprained ( actually resprained as it was the same wrist I hurt when I fell on the ice in January ! ) wrist and I have pulled some ligaments and tendons under my knee and now have inflammation under my kneecap . Physio therapy seems to be helping but dang , I didn't realize how bad a shape I am in as simple exercises are hard to do ......... not from the pain but because I have no strength or muscle tone from being inactive for a long while !!!! It is a Catch 22 as too much walking on the leg after the fall helped it stay mobile but could have done damage because I was on it too much ! Oh well , I will get better . Don't have a choice as camping season is starting this weekend !
We got the motor home back from having the pre-season service done . We spent a lot of the weekend loading and organizing as we plan on spending a lot of DH's recouperation in it at our favorite campground . I put some toilet chemical in the toilet and went to flush the toilet ........ NO water !!!! All the switches were in the right position and there was water in the holding tank ! Dh tried everything to get it working but NOTHING !!! Finally we called a mobile RV guy in to come see what he could figure out as we have had nothing but problems with the business that did the preseason work ( and some warranty work ) . Doug came and fiddled around and was not getting anywhere getting water running inside the coach ! Finally we discussed exactly what the other business had done for dewinterizing when I remembered that the water filter had been removed and then replaced . Doug takes the filter out of the holder , turns it upside down and puts it back in the holder and back on the filtration system. I went in the coach , turned on the tap and VOILA !!!! WATER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The flipping filter was installed wrong which in turn shut down the whole water system ! Lesson learned and something we will definitely remember next time !!!! So Doug said to me that was a KISS project .................. KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL ! It is always the last place you look !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well now that DH has calmed down and the other business is getting a NICE bill .... they already have a piece of DH's mind and tongue ! ....... for this little repair , we are really looking forward to camping this weekend ! LOL !
Still nothing concrete about a surgery date for DH . Waiting sucks and he has had a bad week ! Worrying about the MH and when he will get called doesn't help !
Well that's all folks and until next time .............................. keep smiling , happy crafting and wish for some nice Spring weather !
