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 !

Baby steps forward ......

What a week but it is getting better :-) DH came down with an infection in his incision but the increase in his antibiotics have made a world of difference . Tuesday he saw our family Dr whom gave the okay for us to go to the motor home and relax . ........ although DH had to be in town for an early morning appointment with him this morning . Youngest DS has been playing taxi for us so brought us down and stayed until last night when he and DH went back home for the night ( a quick 45 minute trip ) . DS then took DH to the Dr and for a few groceries and as DH got the okay to stay out here and not have to go on IV antibiotics , we will be here for awhile with just quick trips in to town for groceries and Dr appointments . DS brought him back down then went home again so after 3 weeks , DH and I actually have a few minutes alone with no family or " roommates " hovering or listening to what is being said ! Or we can just sit in silence and enjoy just knowing that we are there for each other ............... " in sickness and in health " . I have been playing nurse maid but am finding I don't mind the roll at all . I just do what has to be done .... with a little ( okay , a LOT ) of nagging :-) . DS will come back next week and taxi DH to the Dr and hopefully DH will feel strong enough to drive and get the okay to do so just so we have our truck here .

It is nice to see our kids have kicked in and been there when we have needed them the most . Oldest DS visited DH in the hospital at least twice a day and made a point of the evening visit to last a couple hours after everybody had left .... helped DH's evening move along . He has actually been by the house more then once since DH got home and makes a point of calling too . He is stopping by tomorrow morning just to bring DH something he forgot at home . DD was my shoulder and rock the first few days DH was in the hospital and she and her family brightened DH's Father's Days by being at the hospital before heading home after the girls swim meet . She calls every day to make sure things are okay . Youngest DS has been a big help by just being where we need him and when we do ............ guess that can be reversed too as he does live with us and is having his own health issues to contend with . Still, it is nice to have somebody that can drive us around ! ( yes , I still do not drive ! ) . Thanks to my Mother and Brother for phoning and keeping up on the happenings in our household .

The sun has shone and the temperature is rising here so hopefully we will see some summer over the next month or so . Not sure when DH is supposed to go back to work but he has to be strong enough before he even thinks about it ! Tomorrow night the owner of the campground is putting on fireworks for Canada Day ( July 1st ) and July 4th .......................... more because July 1st fell on a Wednesday and more people are here for the weekend ! As a matter of fact , the campground is full so it will be a busy weekend here . There are kids and dogs everywhere that my yappy Yorkies seem to think they need to bark at !!! Grrrr ! Little buggers ! LOL ! Mind you , the neighbor has 2 big dogs that bark just as much and then mine start ....... or the campground owners 2 Shelties get everybodies dogs barking !!! I can hardly wait for Monday and quiet ! LOL !

Hope everybody see some sunshine this weekend and enjoys life to the fullest !
