I Love Thursday#7

Another week flew by. I just realized I haven’t posted on my blog since last week and didn’t even set my goals this week!

I like it when I am so busy that I lose track of time! 🥴. Then I need to figure out what I was so busy doing?

I had to make a trip to Oyama to help my friend that had a heart attack a couple of months ago. I am so happy that they have been social distancing since they live half an hour from Kelowna which has become a nasty hot spot for a Covid 19 flare up. If I didn’t love these friends as much as I do, I wouldn’t have taken the chance to go as close to the contagion zone as I did. Luckily I was able to get everything done on their To Do List in 3 days. I was able to travel there and back with only having contact with the 2 of them. I was able to get gas by paying at the pump and coffee at a drive through. You really have to like how easy it is to distance yourself from people when we are in the middle stage (I hope) of a pandemic. I was pleasantly surprised to see about half the people I drove by were wearing masks. I did not go in to Kelowna but had to drive through part of Vernon to get to and from Oyama.

Such beautiful skies! The view while in a drive through getting coffee!

I enjoy the fact that I managed to get some sewing time in with 3 finishes that I’m not able to share until next week. These beauties are done and ready to go into the trunk with the Christmas goodies.

Since I have been home I have been dealing with a leaking plumbing issue in my storage room again. Last time it was the grease trap in the clubhouse kitchen and a poorly installed drain. I’m not sure exactly where these leaks are from. One is from the dishwasher drain, but the other 2 are coming through the floor. DH looked around down here and then went up to the clubhouse to see where the floor is rotting. He thinks it is in the wall between the walk-in cooler wall and the exterior wall. It could be an expensive fix. The bad news is the plumber who volunteers at the golf course is on vacation. The worse news is the staff in the clubhouse are rude and told me to not waste their time and to tell my landlord. As far as I know the Clubhouse Manager is acting as landlord on behalf of the Golf Course and she isn’t here yesterday or today and doesn’t answer her phone. I’m getting confused by all of this. 😞

Isn’t it great when your biggest issues in life are avoiding Covid hot spots and rude people.

On a happier note I just received a text from my grandson in Mexico. They ate going to be coming home to Canada for a few months to see what happens with Covid 19. Then when my son is finished working out his catch up stints in Saudi Arabia (5 months with no break) they will decide where to go after they leave Mexico. They are hoping that Canadians will be able to travel to Europe if the pandemic seems to be under control. If not they will continue living in Mexico until things do settle down.

I am continuing to enjoy garden goodies from some wonderful friends here. It seems as if the day after I finish my fresh produce, another friend drops of a basket of fresh goodies. I get all of the pleasure of a garden with none of the work! 😉. It’s really a bonus since this year is the worst I remember ever seeing for mosquitos. They are vicious this year.

I really enjoy being so close to my Guild. This morning I needed to sandwich a quilt so I went for a walk to the Guild to take advantage of the large tables. It was a quick job to lay it out and sandwich it.

We have been having some summer weather finally here. Temperatures have been in the low to mid thirties. We are supposed to have rain tonight, which I’m always happy to see. More rain means less risk of wildfires. Apparently the weekend will be perfect golfing weather. That always brings a smile to my face. It’s been so wonderful this year seeing parents getting out with their kids and playing golf. It’s sad to admit it, but Covid has been a real booster for the golf courses in our country. It’s one recreational activity you can do while distancing yourself from anyone other than your pod! Our little golf course went from having thirty members to having almost 100 and a lot of those are family memberships. Our junior memberships (13 – 18) have quadrupled. Perhaps the course will survive and flourish for another generation. One can only hope!

So life will continue with us all hopefully, staying safely in our little bubbles. Eventually we will be able to plan vacations and trips to see family.

In the meantime we can continue to visit friends on line by checking out their blogs. I’m heading over to see LeeAnna at I Love Color for her I Like Thursday #203 post. How incredible is that? 203 posts sharing a few of the things she likes or loves! Do stop by to see what everyone is sharing.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love sharing my news and likes with all of you. 😉 Carol

And not just Canada please. This applies to the world. 😷

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. Hi Carol! So glad you posted today with all of your likes. Rude people! And their issue is causing you a big issue. I hope the Clubhouse Manager gets back to you soon and figures it out. {{Hugs}} You’re such a good friend. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Nice thought but the Clubhouse Manager is even ruder than her staff. She is DH’s sister in law so it’s a mess 😞. I’ve emailed another member of the Board so hopefully will have an answer tomorrow? 😉 in the meantime the sun is shining and I’m stitching while out of the patio until the mosquitoes chase me indoors.

  2. No fun heading into a hot spot. But yay for getting in and out quickly, and distancing as much as you could. I do like the fabric in your “mystery” quilts. 🙂

  3. How nice that you were able to go and help your friend while keeping yourself distanced as much as possible. I’m sorry, though, about the water issues and the rude staff. Hope you get it taken care of soon! I’m itching to see your blog project! I’m sewing on the binding on mine tonight.
