Well, we have been remiss about keeping up to date.  We have been really busy  trying to get our building to lock up before winter.  We have worked till almost dark,everyday.  We come in and make dinner and have a shower and go to bed.

We wake up still with aches and pains to do it again.  We got the roof on, on Saturday and yesterday we caulked and sealed the building with tyvek.  We never didn’t that when we built our house.  Something new everyday.

Dave has been working on the carrier for our scooter.  He has taken a break from that today.  We have put the plywood on the wall Dave built a few days ago.  I have been doing just as much as Dave.  I put together my sawhorses because they were rattly.

We went over to the island, we bought our scooter and visited my son and his fiance.  We went Princess auto then we went to Beacon hill park.  We bought ice cream and then we went for a walk.  We took the kids for supper.  We went to Milestone on the Inner harbor. The supper was awful.  We had to order food in our motel room because we were hungry.

Well, we bought a scooter for our motor home.  My kids laughed their asses off.  I don’t care we need some way to get around while we are parked and to go get beer and groceries.  We go for whitewater rafting anf we are taking our motor home to see how things go.

I am really excited about our adventure this winter. I am feeling awesome.

My daughter phoned last night and she and her boyfriend are going to come visit before we leave for the winter.

Well we have bought a motor home.  We plan on travelling the southern states this winter.

We have gone through it and took out all the rattles.  I glued sticks in the doors to stop the glass from rattling.  Dave put the stove from the boat into the motor home.  It looks great.

I spent three hours cleaning the carpet.  I will finish tomorrow.

We are buying a scooter for the trip.  It is really cute.

Sorry I have been a little lacks about my blog.

The two grandchildren were here to visit.  They are so full of energy I was sleeping without a sleeping pill for two weeks now.  We went to Vancouver and met up with them.  We went to the Capilano Suspension Bridges, Stanley park and then we went for supper and then the fireworks.  The next day, we drove home and stopped at Hells gate.  We only lost them once, we forgot to tell them to turn at Hope.  They drove for a half an hour till they could turn around and come back to Hope.  FYI, there is no service for cell phone just outside of Hope.

Hi, we have been so busy.  We have been getting ready for family visits.  We had my daughter come visit. We went to Quesnel, she drove and went for lunch at Mr. Mike’s.  There hasn’t been a Mr. Mike’s since 2000.

We just got back from Saskatchewan.  We spent last weekend with 5 grandsons and two daughters and two son- in- laws.  We had a great time, we went out on the lake in Dale’s boat. We took four of them fishing and one of them went in swimming.DSC00694

We went to Saskatoon and flew to Washington DC for my doctors appointment there.  We flew through Minneapolis, on the way back we had a 10 hour stop over.  So we put our bags in a locker, then took the metro to the Mall of America.  We had lunch at Tony Roma and shopped.  Going back to the airport around 5.  We cleared customs again, then looked around at the shops and then went to Chili’s for supper.

Had coffee my husband made when he got up.  He had swiss chard out of the garden with eggs.  I had toast.

I spent the day working on shirt and jackets for the grandchildren for our visit.

I am going to town on Friday for breakfast with my friend.  Later have to get the mail.

Today I went to town first thing to buy cement.   I got home at 8:30 and we started mixing cement.

Monday June 29th I took my friend to town and we bought groceries.  Then we went for lunch at the sushi restaurant, that night I went kayaking with my other friend.

Tuesday I woke up with a headache and it lasted all day.  I went to bed at 2:30 because I was cold, it was 32 outside and I was shivering. I woke up at 7 pm and had a bowl of soup, had a shower and went back to bed.

Yesterday, I mowed the grass and finished the seat covers for the truck.

DSC00657My brother and sister in law left this morning.  We were up at 6:20.  I am not a morning person.  We had coffee and Dave made omelettes and bacon and I made toast.  They got on the road by 7:30, hoping they would make the 3 pm ferry to Victoria.

While they were here I took them kayaking down the lake and back.  We spent a lot of time in the house talking and eating because it was too hot.  Yesterday was a little cloudy but we were tired from trying to see the Northern lights the night before.  They went to town a walked around Scout Island.

Well it 7 pm and I am exhausted.  We worked on the forms.   We went to town this morning.  We went to our friend’s garage sale, Dave bought some welding wire.

I mowed the grass this afternoon, then I helped Dave put the tools away, then we tamped the  ground around the rebar.  I planted the grass seed on the dirt by the house.  So I don’t think it will be long before we are in bed.
