TGIF! July 8, 2011

Good evening!


It is an absolutely stunning day out there today … what a week we had for holidays, sure know how to pick ’em! Today brings to a close our vacation; well, not until Sunday, I suppose, but today is the last work day. Speaking of working, we are working to get a dog for Sydney. Before we walked into the SPCA today, I asked her if she was ready for this. She said, ‘yeah, I’ve been ready for like two years!!!’. She is ready, that is for sure. Unfortunately, that avenue didn’t pan out, at least today, so we are still looking.


On a sad note, my Auntie Marge passed away yesterday after a long and courageous battle with nasty cancer. While we may not have been ready to let her go, she was ready. I was thinking about her today and imagining her in heaven with her husband, Eddie, who passed away quite a few years ago now, also from cancer (jeez, I hate that disease). And she is with my mom and dad too … and they are all having quite the party! And they are watching over those of us still here on earth living our lives. Thank you, all!


A few weeks ago, I think I mentioned that I was going to try ‘Friday Fast Track’, which is an online challenge hosted by The Moments blog. They post a sketch at a certain time and you have two hours to complete it and submit your version. I tried previously to do this but was not successful. But this time, it worked!!! See below for the sketch and then my interpretation. I kinda like the way it turned out.









That’s all for tonight. I hope to still do some more scrappin’ before I officially go back to work on Monday, but we will see. We have completely let the house go while we have been playing :-). Penny and Craig will be coming here on Sunday, and I am TOTALLY excited to see them, since it’s been awhile. Penny continues her gracious and determined battle with the nasty disease too, and she’s got another medical appointment here. She knows the roads between Shaunavon and Saskatoon so well that she could practically drive with her eyes closed (but that might not be such a good idea!!).


Have a lovely evening, and I hope you will visit again soon.

    Great takre on the FFT sketch! Hugs and prayers for your loss. Good luck with dog. We had gotten our Roxie from the pound and had her for 16 years. She was an awesome dog.
