Toooooooooo Much to do.....Not enough time to do it...

Ok so it is now only 2 1/2 days before christmas. I have to find something for my mother still. Man is she ever hard to buy for. I would like to get my husband a couple of different things. On top of that I need to get some stocking stuffers for all the family.

I feel that this year is going to be a good year. We will be having a lot of fun with family and friends.

Hello Internet....

SO it is Monday and I am at work thinking HMMMM there has to be a greater purpose for me to be here then to just copy and paste from one doc to the next......

I have been doing the Unravelling class you can find the link to sign up for the class at Ink on my fingers. http://www.inkonmyfingers.typepad.com/

It has been a great look into myself. I have figured out that I am not all that happy with my work life. Home life is alright Husband is great...Daughter is a teen what can you do???...Anyway in going though her class I am more aware of what is around me. In going through photo and writing assignments I have had to look inside myself to see what is acctually there. I has been quite a journey tt will continue for a long time as I have just scrached the surface of my unravelling.

Have a great monday everyone.

Hello Internet,

Things going on with me....

Work is going nuts...Lots to do so many changes coming.

Life has been crazy. My mother and I are catering for a camp this weekend so I have been crazy busy getting ready for that.

My daughter is being a teenager. She still thinks she knows everything. But I think that there is a small light at the end of the tunnel. She still talks to me so that is a good thing.

My granddaughter is a beautiful little bug that has a whole bunch of us wrapped around her little finger.

I have started an online class called Unravelling. I am doing it for a bit of self discovery.

Our first task has been a fun one as well as difficult. The online community that is part of the class looks like it is going to be a good group. I can feel some tears, laughter and discovery coming on.

Enough babbling for the day.

have a great evening everyone out there.

Mish Mosh

Well it has been a while since I was here there has been a lot of things going on.

Izabella is now 3 months. She is such a cute little muffin. Loves to smile.

We did a bottle drive for a fundraiser for our guide unit. It was messy and hard but well worth it. I think we will be doing another one in the next couple of months.

We had a bridal shower for my cousin Faye-Ann. What a good time we all had. It was all the girs in our family minus one. Below are a few pictures of the fun we had...

We had sooo much fun.

Have a great weekend and internet please wish me luck as I am shooting the wedding. This is the first time I have ever done this so if you have any pointers I would love to hear them.

This is my wish for you:

Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, and Love to complete your life.”-Author unknown

Happy Thursday everyone...

My weekend last weekend was great. I looked after my little Izabella on Friday night. I also had her for most of the day on Saturday while we were with my cousin doing wedding favors. It was a good day. For the evening my mom took her. While my husband and I went out for dinner and a movie. We did this insted of Capital Ex because it was way to hot ouside for us to enjoy it. So in going out for dinner and a movie we excaped to air conditioned buildings. so for dinner we went ot Origanal Joe's they have great Burgars. For the movie we went to Transformers 2. It was AWESOME. I have always loved a good action movie. THe only thing that would have made it a better day is if my daughter had joined us for at least part of it. On sunday one of my cousins had a family bbq potluck in the park so mom and I went to that for a bit. It was nice to see people that I haven't seen in a really long time.

This weekend we are going out to our cabin for the Annual Aug Long family bash. It will be fun some slipin and slidin, some goofing around on the beach, some singing around the fire and some awesome food. oh and can't forget the fireworks.

Have a great weekend everyone out there....

Happy Birthday to Me....

Well tomorrow is my 35th birthday. I have a lot planned for this weekend...

I am babysitting the cutest baby on earth tonight so her mom can go to the new Harry Potter...
Then I am also babysitting for a bit on Saturday while her mom goes to Capital Ex.
I am going to be going to Jo's house to make wedding favors with Jo, Faye and mom for Faye's wedding. This should be a good time. I am also hoping we can go to the site for the wedding so that I can see what I have to work with for photos. I forgot to tell you I will be the photographer for Faye and Dave's wedding and Ian will be the master of ceremonies (perfect job for him)
Once that is done Ian and I will be going to Capital Ex for the Thornley Concert and maybe to check some things out around the grounds. MINI DONUTS YUM.....
On Sunday I may go to a picnic for my cousins birthday. Not sure yet that depends on how tired I am after all the stuff that is going on on Saturday....
These are all just possible things that I will be doing this weekend except for the babysitting that is for sure.
I will let you know how it goes with some pics next week sometime.
Have a great weekend...

2nd Annual Road Trip

My daughter and I decided last year that we would like to take a road trip every year on the weekend of Canada day. Last year we went to Kalispell Montana this year we went to Seattle Washington. This year we had my mom and little baby Izabella with us. It was a great trip all around. We hit a deer, did some shopping, did some touring and lots and lots of walking. THe pics below are just a smattering of what we did. Enjoy.

Little mommy Having a rest before the trip really began.

Alexis and Izabella posing for me while I work out how to use my new Camara.

This was the only way I could think of to show the construction. We were lined up for ever on a few of the roads. A trip that should have taken 4 hours took 6.

The very first Starbucks. Located in Pike Place, Seattle

Veggie market also in Pike place

This is the coolest rose I have ever seen. There was about 12 of them they were 9.50 per rose so cool.

That is just a little view of our trip. It was all around a good trip a few blips in the radar. But it wouldn't be any fun without the blips.

Have a wonderful day

Oh Happy days

So division camp is done. It was a great time for the girls. We even got a girl that wanted to join our group because she had so much fun with my girls, myself and the other leader in our unit. That is a good thing I think. We had large 15 person tent with 12 girls in it (I am not sure how you could fit 15 in it but that is what it said. The weather was awesome. the food was delisious. A good time was had by all.
Alexis and I went to our cake decorating class yesterday it was fun. Poor Alexis she just had a train wreck. Her cake slid in the carrier and then when she tried to put the transfer on it stuck to the cake. I think it still turned out pretty good. All in all it was a fun night out with my daughter. I will put some pics up of camp and the cake some time later this week.
Have a great day.

Sunny Day

Last night was a great night. We had an art show with our guide troupe. The put their artwork all around outside. The girls were very excited to show their parents the work that they had done. After that was done I went home to hang out with some girls that were in my guide group but are now leaders. We watched Pretty in Pink. It is an awesome movie with molly ringwald. It is an 80's classic.
Tonight I will be babysitting the little runt and taking my nephew to Scout camp. Then selling cookies tomorrow. Hopefully that will be the last of the cookies. 140 cases is way to many to sell with only 5 girls that are willing to help. Once the cookies are sold it is time to start looking into our trip to PEI. The girls are going to love that. IF anyone has any funraising ideas please let me know we are always looking for different ways to do it as the girls would like to be able to raise about 3/4 of their trip.
Have a great day.

Baby is here....

Little Izabella Joanna arived on May 12, 2009 at 9:51 am. It brought on mixed emotions for me. I am happy that all went well for my daughter..the delivery was easy...she has bounced back pretty quickly....Little baby is doing well...already holding her head up...

But for all the joy I can't help but feel lost. My daughter doesn't really need me anymore. She is way to focused on her boyfriend. She has given up her childhood for him and I don't think she can see it that way. Enough about that....

My husband asked me this morning "why don't you post your pictures. You go around everywhere snaping cool pictures and you don't share...." I wonder why this is...So I have decided that I will share my pictures here on this blog...even if nobody reads it I am sharing them for all to see....

Have a great day everyone....

Had a good weekend...

Well this weekend I went to my first Training/Camping Workshop. I didn't really learn very much it was more for the trainers as they decided at the last minute to combine the 2 groups. It was a good time though. Lots of laughs to be had.

I learnt a new song called One Voice it was a nice song. I can imagine it being sang in a really large group and hearing it start out with one voice singing and then adding another batch of people and anthor a bit at a time until the whole group has joined in singing the song then it ends again with the one voice... GOOSE BUMB material.

Off to get some work done. Had a spreadsheet to do for work tomorrow...can't seem to get myself to get at it.....

Have a wonderful week everyone...

Going to try this once more....

Sitting here watching Mama Mia...Awesome movie...fun to sing along with.

I have signed myself up to color my hair for cancer. I am going Blue I think...I have always wanted to do it now I have a good cause to do it for...

I am going out to our cabin tomorrow with mom to have a look and see what we will need to bring out for when we officially open it up for the summer. I am hoping we can get into it as it has been quite a snowy year at the cabin.

Have a great day...
