As I'm taking pictures of the family before they leave on their trip, Jackson is showing keen interest in grabbing my camera...so I stepped back a bit from where Janis was holding him and he took a few steps to get the camera....yay!!!! Look out Edmonton/Calgary...he will be in constant motion once he gets going....









pictures taken as ALL MY FAMILY was packed and ready to leave for their holiday to Edmonton/Calgary. Not comforting to know your entire family is in one vehicle on that highway for a long weekend....they caught the 6pm on Friday and we at the cabin by Edmonton 6pm Saturday....wow...so glad to hear they made it safe and sound.








so close to walking!! THEN he walked....what a send-off for Grammer.

I'm so excited...I 'found' an outlet that sells my angel ring! I need a new one as mine is nearly worn down to the copper.






My balcony work is finally nearing an end..the floors have to be sanded and painted and then it's all done. This has been ongoing since 2005... patience is a virtue!

Christopher told me his new sweater 'itched'..so I found some fabric that I had rescued from an OLD sleeping bag...did this YEARS ago!!...so it was wind/water proof and it worked like a charm... He will be so pleased.
The FibreFest Fashionshow/supper was very very good...thanks Marilyn for a job well done. Her daughters are such sweeties and helped make the show!
Today is "pay house taxes" day and pick up some plant roots from Scott before he moves out of his big house on July lst... am going to try growing rhubarb in a huge pot on my deck..can't see why it won't work.

Tonight I had a great visit/supper with Crissy Isabelle from Fort St. John, BC. She is in Victoria for a business meeting tomorrow and leaves again tomorrow. Busy woman. Nice person.
29 years old and the world is hers for the grabbing...oh youth..it's wasted on the young!!! (an elderly woman told me that a long time ago)

Janis has been taking Jackson monthly to Bench school since 1 month old.
The children have been monitoring his growth..mentally, physically and emotionally...
This programme is amazing and benefits everyone involved. I can't get the article to show any bigger than this..if anyone wants to see it in whole, email me! You might try clicking on the article and then enlarge it that way..not certain it will work..

Have been very busy...did store demos Friday and Saturday..this time it was Knorr Frozen Entrees. Amazing how many people do NOT eat packaged meals/foods...they were constantly reading the ingredients etc. etc... it was an eye opener for sure.
This morning..10am...my daughters and grandkids (with Grammer) went to the Imax. Must say it was not the best of their features...Charlotte whispered "How much longer do we have to watch sardines swim around?"....exactly!!
They continued on their way to a birthday party...I will take in the music at BeaconHill Bandstand...every Friday and Sunday until September long weekend! ..my favourite thing to do...take my knitting..find a quiet corner and relax...good for the mind/soul/body.....

Just about finished Christopher's BuffaloWool Sweater....his sweater for his 6th birthday...It's looking good...
Tomorrow(guess that's TODAY..it's 2am) I'll get the zipper and then sew on the collar... THEN I will have to soak it in vinegar and cold water to set the navy colour...this colour has turned my fingers navy blue each time I knit!!
Now it's time to get to bed..

HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY, Christopher Hunter!!!!
Grammer loves you soooooooooo much!!!
I am so proud of you when you said "I would be honoured to share my family birthday party with Jackson"!!! You are a very special young man.
Hope you have fun bowling with all your school buddies tomorrow at YOUR birthday party... Hugs and love forever, Grammer.

Found this in one of my 'save' files...good stuff!!
Hope you can read it... let me know!

Helen and I at the ball park...happy time.
what a great Sunday! spent the afternoon..and evening...at two baseball games. Both of Helen's grandsons had games...two different parks...so we were on the go! Both boys are excellent pitchers and such nice young men.
Believe me, I slept like a baby with all that fresh air! Wonderful!!
Back to knitting the buffalo wool sweater for Christopher's 6th birthday tomorrow...don't think I'll make it but I'm trying...
Wishing you all a great week.
