Property Update

Well  the lawyers are still dealing with the property sale so we are still here in British Columbia. We did manage the trip to Alberta in order for Shawn and Tish to get away to their concert.  We left here last Friday around 3:00.   DH was having stress once it got dark so I stopped driving in Cranbrook.  We got up early and made it to the farm in Drayton Valley at dinner time.  My son arrived home Saturday night from work around 8:00, just in time to tuck the girls in. We spent Sunday at the farm and planned on heading out Monday morning.  I woke with a migraine, the first in months but managed to drive to Lacombe to my daughters.  The youngest of my great grandkids was there so I managed to see Nova-Leland get some snuggles in between naps.  I also got to see my oldest grandson, Ryan.  Then Greatgrandson, Mason arrived from school and Nicole (my granddaughter) arrived from work.  It was noisy and hectic, to say the least!  We stayed for dinner but DH insisted on heading out.  I was heartbroken at only having such a short visit with my daughter, Stacy and all of her family, but wasn’t surprisedDH wanted to go.  He doesn’t have the same closeness with his children as I do and really doesn’t do well in crowds.  I managed to drive to Red Deer but just couldn’t go further with the migraine still bothering me.  We got up early and I drove straight through.

It was nice to sleep in our own bed and then get up early to be in town for his doctor,s appointment.  Funny thing was, his doctor had moved offices and his appointment had been cancelled.

Life does have a way of laughing at you!

The good news is DH had 2 more days of golf before we woke up to 5 inches of snow on the car.  The snow has almost all melted so he might get to play some more before winter sets in.

Ill keep you posted on the house sale, our possible next move and our plans for a vacation as they firm up.  In the meantime, fabric needs to be played with and quilts need to be made!

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. There are lots of sayings like the best laid plans, or God laughs when He hears about your plans. Things works out for the best, I’ve always found. Happy Monday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. I do hope you managed a little stash enhancement in the Lacombe quilt shop. If it is still there, it was a good ‘un, and my friend and I had a few excellent stops/shops/chats there over the years when I lived in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Drayton Valley has/had(?) two quilt shops; went on a bus tour with the guild I belonged to at the time. Thanks for visiting my post on my daughter Dayna’s quilt – she misses Alberta a lot. Sorry but you are a no-reply on my blog (blogger and WordPress don’t ‘speak’, so I can’t email you personally and I don’t get your replies to my comments here, most annoying, but if you write your email in your comment, I will answer you privately in future! Great grandkids shots. 🙂


    1. Hi Sandra. While in Lacombe I had a migraine and was totally focused on grandkids, great grandkids and my daughter. Hubby wasn’t up to carsitting so I could shop so I missed out on Lacombe shop. Drayton Valley does have 2 great shops but we didn’t get to stop there either. Next trip will work for stash enhancement! My email is
