It's Fall people, and that leads to Winter (shudder)!
I haven't been playing in the craft room for ev-ah!
Just piling up the 'had to have' items off the internet & elsewhere!
It's supposed to be tropical again today, so the tomato & pepper harvest are on the agenda!
Also finishing the Strawberry bed; hopefully Ray sticks around long enough to haul dirt!
I'm also trying to decide if I need to mow once more, or the mower can be put away.....
I'm leaning towards putting it away!
This week I've sorted & sold some bottles!
Our bottle depot will be closing November 1st, and I at least want all the bottles from the campground gone & not sitting around!
I've dug half the potatoes!
I went to "We're the Millers" with some gf's!
Lots of cussing, which I always find unnecessary; and considering I didn't like "Bridesmaids" or "The Hangover", I enjoyed this.
One of the gf's son & DIL bought the "big drug store" in town.
I offered to help with inventory. WTH!
I arrived yesterday morning by 8:30 am, and at 9:00 pm told them I'd had enough fun, I had to go home!
I've got some more pictures from the "HOLIDAY"!
Here's the craft Kalen & I did.
Mom gave me my dads wallet to give to Kalen.
Said if he didn't want it, to destroy the stuff in it.
I didn't want to just give him the wallet so it could be tossed into a drawer.
We went to Michaels, bought a shadow box, mod podge & created!
Kalen wanted the wallet in there too!
I also had included a medal my dad had won in school for being the top athlete;
in like 1940 something!
I need to send Kalen a crafty safety pin (the right color), and he'll attach it to the wallet.
My mom also found my dads passport, so is sending that, and a black & white picture.
So really, everything is destroyed, and on display!
Vanessa finally spotting the lighthouse at Fort Rodd.
Awesome huge Christmas ornaments (and why isn't someone painting them) at Fort Rodd!
Actually they're buoy's, but pretty cool!
I am standing in front of Hatley Castle,
where they filmed scenes from X-Men 2 and 3!
I'm facing the school (university?) they filmed scenens there too!
This was an awesome light in one of the stores on Granville Island!
It's from Ikea, and made out of paper!
It was about 3 feet across!
Here's Kalen being a 'tree hugger' so you can get some perspective on these humungous cedars at Cathedral Grove!
This was also where he said, "Mom, we're not waiting for you to take a picture of EVERY tree."
I brought up the rear and photographed as many trees as I wanted! hahahaha
This is where Terry Fox would have finished his run.
I think Kalen told me it's where the Trans Canada Highway starts/ends in Victoria.
I put the kids on the HIPPO BUS!
I took the 10 minute walk to Starbucks for their Pumpkin Spiced Latte!
It's a BUS not a BOAT people!
On my drive home on September 1st, I stopped to photograph the wildlife!
This guy was pretty big, eating clover, (shortage of berries I'm told),
and every once in a while he'd look up like, "Where'd all those people come from!?"
This guy was smaller, up the road a ways, and eating the clover!
That's all I got!
Hopefully I can get creative this week....
I've been hoping that for 2 weeks now!
Better eat, and see if the dew has dried up!
Hope you're all well!
Talk to ya later!
Ta ta for now!
