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 !

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 !
