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 !

Yikes !!!!!

Where is the time going ? DH had his surgery almost 5 weeks ago ( one month and 3 days ) and every day is a better day as he is getting stronger . Still fighting the infection in one of his staple sites but it is slowly clearing ........... not fast enough for his liking though ! He did get the okay to drive again though so we now have our vehicle at the campsite for our use ...... not that we are going far but it is the feeling of independence that brought a smile to DH ! We did take a quick trip down the road to get some groceries on Saturday and to visit the kids in Quesnel for a couple of hours . DH was completely exhausted by the time we got home though . It is times like this that make me wish I had been pushed at an earlier age to get my driver's license though . ( I am the world's worst passenger though and very uncomfortable at the thought of being another idiot driver on the road so I can't see it ever happening either ! ) .

We are enjoying our time at the campsite and are not looking forward to the reality of being home any time soon . Not sure how many more weeks we can sit here before DH gets the okay to go back to work but he sees the specialist on Monday next for a checkup and we may have a better idea when " normal " life returns . We have had a tremendous amount of company here though ! It is amazing the amount of people that just stop by on their way home from holidays or just pop down for a coffee ! We appreciate all the visits :-) Shannon brought some yummy goodies on Sunday when they stopped by and Rick & Afroulla brought us a container of Maine Maple Syrup today on their way home from their cross country trip to P.E.I . ................ tomorrow it will be sampled on our pancakes ! Thanks again everybody !

Our weather has been a real mixture of hot summer days to rain , coast like weather . We have had some fascinating thunder and lightening storms ( along with the hail that came with it ! ) go through as well . Thanks heavens we have only had one night where it didn't really cool off much ! We have lots of nice evenings to sit out around a campfire but DH is played out early so most nights we just sit and sip a cup of tea then head in . WILD TV has become DH's friend but I am not wild about the channel as it is all hunting shows ( not porn .... LOL ! ) and seriously hunting turkeys and geese is rather annoying ! LOL ! Thank heavens I have my laptop and a lot of books with me ! Today I even baked a cake ............................ DH was laughing as I don't even make them at home ! I noticed he ate more then his fair share of it though :-)

Have a great week everybody and I hope the sun shines where you live and you get out and make some memories !
