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 !

Camping in the rain .... and what showed up !

 My last post was about camping in the rain of the week but I did manage to get out and snap a few photos .We love this spot at Canyon Creek Campground as it is the biggest spot .... and has it's own flowerbed that actually had flowers in it this year ( thanks Kim ! ) . Our spot is also a little quieter as we are tucked into a corner ...........  just so RELAXING even in the rain ! Usually I have my flowerbaskets out too but they had already gone back home when we took the RV home the last time ! This week we spent a lot of time watching the squirrels drop cones out of the trees ( and occasionally dropping them on somebody's vehicle like little bombs ! ) . They were sure busy being hoarders :-)

 Well DH went into town a couple days and this is what he came back with one day ............ we traded up from the Toyota Tacoma to this

A 2010 Nissan Titan ( a full size truck ) ...... As much as we loved the economy of the Toyota Tacoma it was just too small for comfort as both DH & I always came out of it feeling like hurtin' pretzels ! The Nissan Titan is soooooooooo comfortable to ride in ( so we found out when we went for quick ride to DD's one night ! LOL ) . And the color ................... so pretty !!!! Turns out a good salesman ( namely our youngest son ) told us that it possibly is only one of three in Canada in this color ! It is called OCEAN ( almost a blue / gray depending on the light ) . Our son also had to really " sell " the Nissan truck to the " hardnose salesman #1 " ( namely his Father ! LOL ) as he was one step away from buying a Toyota Tundra ( which I fell in love with ! ) ................................ Needless to say we are ALL happy as DS made a sale , DH got his full size truck that is comfortable and I got a truck I hopefully wouldn't fall out of this winter trying to get out of as these running boards are made to stand on not just for decoration !!! LOL

 Now if we could just win the lottery to pay for all these TOYS the man in my life keeps buying !!!! YIKES !!!!  Hmmmm , now I want to take the truck on holidays aand leave the Taj at home ..... but guess THAT isn't going to happen ! LOL ! Better make sure I hide the keys while we are away sso the boys don't borrow it !!!!!
