I'm here.....

but I've been really busy finishing up my July SPS projects and cleaning up after my family. I just KNEW there was going to be a downside to my going on vacation alone!!!

But, I digress. =D

Next time I post I'll share some of my Peggy's Cove pictures.

Have a great day!

One More Day.....

here in Halifax. My sister and I are planning a day of sightseeing if the weather is good and shopping at one of the LSSs.

Yesterday it poured, but we were at Pier 21 which is all indoor. What an amazing place!! They have photocopies of all the passenger lists from all the boats that brought immigrants to Pier 21 over from Europe over a 40 year period. My Dad stopped in at the research centre and found our family's names on one of the lists, so he signed his name next to it. I've really been into learning more about my family and our history, so yesterday was one of the highlights of the trip for me.

I'm starting to look forward to going home. I miss my hubby and kids and am sad that they're not here to share all of this with me. On the other hand, it's been fun to be by myself and not have to worry about the kids. It's been an experience that I'll never forget! Stay tuned for many, many pages about these last 5 days. =D

Have a great day!

In Halifax.....

Well, I'm here and it's beautiful!!

I've already taken 130 pictures and eaten a lobster. My sister and I both think it tastes like buttered corn on the cob. Weird, I know, but it's sweet and salty and yummy!

Today is the wedding day so I'm sure by the end of the day I'll have 130 more pictures.

Sunday we're heading to Pier 21; that's where my Dad landed when he immigrated to Canada. Can't wait for that!

I'll leave you with a picture.
Have a great day!

I'm Not Ready Yet.....

for this trip to Halifax. I leave on Thursday morning - yep that's right, Thursday. That's less than 2 days away. The suitcase is open on my bedroom floor, but nothing's in it yet. I guess I should decide what I'm taking eh? In spite of what you may be thinking, I really am looking forward to the trip, this is just how I roll. Leave it to the last minute as much as I can!! =D

I got my July kit in the mail on Tuesday, and it's fab!!! I have one single page LO and one double page LO almost done. But. I have run out of the one essential thing for scrapbooking - adhesive!!!! Duh. I really don't know how I managed that one! Anyways, it'll have to wait until I get back now.

I'll "see" you all on Wednesday!

Just a quick check in.....

to share my newest LO :

This is my best friends SO and their new little one - such an awesome pic of the two of them, eh? It totally inspired this whole LO which is also for Colour Combo #124. I'm planning on giving them this one too. The photo jotter is from Jenn's Etsy shop and will be for them to fill out later.

It's going to be a busy week this week, with extra bus driving almost every day. My mother nicely took my YDD home with her yesterday after church because today was my sons class trip. She'll come home tomorrow sometime. It's been different not having her here. Not bad, just different. On Thursday I'm driving my ODD and her class to here. I'm really looking forward to having the day to spend together, just her and I.

Only 10 days to go until my Halifax trip - I'm really getting excited now!

Have a great night!

So This.....

is sitting in the backyard.

It's a 13 person, 222sq foot, 4 room tent. It's HUGE!! It took us less than 1/2 an hour to set up.

It stands OVER 6 feet tall in the centre. Perfect for my tall hubby. And I love it! They were on sale at Canadian Tire this week for $150. It's the deal of the decade I swear!

Now I can't wait for camping this summer! There's so many beautiful places to camp in Ontario. Every year we pick a spot that's about halfway between were we live and were my sister lives (she's 8 hours north of me) and we get together and camp for about 4 days. Here's were we're going this year.

Otherwise nothing much is happening this weekend. About 2 more weeks of school and then I'm off for the summer - Woo Hoo!!

I'm off to work on my LO for Color Combos Galore. Have a great night all!

blogger, bad blogger!!!!!! I've been so lazy not posting lately, my apologies to you all.

OK, so first, I gotta ask, have you SEEN the New Moon Trailer???? Oh. My. Goodness. November cannot get here fast enough. From the little sneak peek they show, I think this movie will be even better than Twilight. Sigh. If you haven't seen it yet, you can see it here.

And, here's my last few projects with the June kit :
This is my best friends little guy & I plan on framing it for her :

And, more cards! Who knew that cardmaking could be so much fun? I'm loving having different types on hand ready to go.

Otherwise, it's the same busy-ness as usual around here. The kids church groups are finished for the summer, but now we have soccer and baseball(both hubbys games and Ethans games) instead. And they are on the same night. At opposite ends of the city. At the same time. Yeah. Fun times. So, because I still cannot split myself into 4 different people (a talent that God has chosen not to give to me) I changed the days that I work again, so that we can get the kids where they need to go. The last two Tuesdays I have frozen my butt of at the side of a soccer field. But, in a few weeks, I'll be sweating buckets, so that'll be fun. Who decided that summer sports was a good thing again? ;)

Just 3 weeks left and then summer vacation starts.......

Also, in about 2 weeks, my brother is getting married, so I'm really looking forward to that trip. I've never been out to the Maritimes, so I'm so excited to go! Monica and I have cancelled the trip to PEI though, too far and too expensive to go for half of a day. So, we'll do that province together another time!

Take a minute and have a peek at the June gallery over at SPS! Have a great day all!
