Goodbye Summer Hello Autumn – Welcome Back Everyone

20130919-204540.jpg
Wowowowow it’s been a long time! Hello Everyone, I hope you are doing well. It seems as tho I took the summer off and then some. I apologize for that but I’m sure you all have some really good bloggers out there to keep you company. 😊

It was a busy summer and yes, I am glad it’s over! Bring it on Fall!

So now since it’s been just over 2.5 months since my last entry I should probably fill you in quickly on my summer. Then you can leave me a comment letting me know about yours! That would be fun right?

So where to begin?

July
Hubs was in whistler for a Stag and I nearly didn’t survive the weekend alone but I did thanks to GalPal Amberina. WE enjoyed some good food, good drinks, some good entertainment, lots of sun, did I mention drinks oh and the laughs! Oh my god the laughs! So many good laughs. Love it! Thanks for getting me thru my separation anxiety.

We also spent a weekend camping at the lake, same spot we had 2 years ago, private and awesome with a great view. Not without some trouble tho, just about got jumped by 3 tweaked out crack heads, then visited by the PoPo who wanted to take a look at Hubs’ guns and I don’t mean his muscles. Hey Hubs, next time be sure to have the safety on when u hand them your loaded shotgun aight!

20130919-212054.jpgThis times 2! Massive space!
20130919-205346.jpgThe campsite of 2011 then a lgging camp blocked off access to it in 2012, believe me, we looked! Here we are in 2013! Our favorite campsite by far!
20130919-205404.jpgRoasting potatoes on the fire. Look at that view! Oh yeah baby! Does life get any better. Oh how wonderful it would be to pack up life and live this way. I love camping!
20130919-205433.jpgSteaks a la propane camp stove. LOL. They were delish!

Seattle!!!! We went down for a weekend to watch another UFC and sadly the prelims were better than the main cards, oh well some rum, lots of walking, Pike Place Market, the parade, the pier and good times in our room!

August
We were lucky enough to watch 2 friends get married on a beautiful day with a beautiful night to follow. That was a lot of fun.

Dinner with some friends for Hubby’s birthday.

Then a whirl wind trip to Alberta for my cousins wedding! It too was a gorgeous wedding and HOT! Oh so hot! It was great to hang with the family and visit with the family I rarely see. Will remember it forever! Wouldn’t have been complete without a fire alarm pull at 1am the night before the big day! Oh and Hubby’s dance removes with my Auntie *smacks forehead with hand*

House renos! So upstairs is completely dry walled and it’s been primed and sanded and primed and sanded. Can’t wait for what comes next

September
Again with the renos. Hubby and I selected paint colours and in no time and all 2 rooms are painted and paint has gone up in the foyer. The foyer has only been started as there was a small accident with a ladder and a freshly dry walled, primed ready to go wall. Just thankful everyone is ok and that it can be fixed. Hehehe. We will not speak of this incident agin. I promise dear. Oh and crown moulding and all our trims have been picked out. Eeeeeeek!

Jones Family Camping trip. Another whirl wind trip to the Okanagan (did I spell that right?). We met up with the rest of the clan for some fun in the sun on the lake. The only major incident was Hubster taking a fall the first night over and around an unused metal fire pit. It was dark ok! And we only drank a little wee bit of rum. It definitely needed and still does need stitches but he calls himself the wolverine and this he heals rapidly fast! LOL. did u just blow a gasket laughing at that comment? Because I do everytime he says it and only because he actually believes it!

MAY SHE LIVE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS

My cousin will live on in our hearts.

Sarah Kristen Petersen, our sweet little girl, passed away suddenly on June 3, 2012 in Calgary, Alberta, at 21 years of age. She was born on March 17, 1991 in Nelson, BC. Sarah grew up in Salmo, BC and graduated in 2009. She was living and working in Calgary, enjoying life and all it had to offer while making many new friends along the way. She was truly beautiful on the inside and out; happy, friendly, caring, positive and most of all kind. You could often find her laughing and lightening everyone’s day with a beautiful smile on her face. Friends will remember her as a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. She will be forever missed. Sarah is survived by her father Glen; her mother Tracy (Kirk); her sister Valene, who she genuinely admired; and her brother Collin, who she loved dearly. She also leaves behind her Grandpa Brown and several loving aunties, uncles, cousins and an abundance of friends. She will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew her and loved her. “If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you’ve made me smile the whole evening sky would be in the palm of my hand”.

I want to thank everyone who offered their support and love throughout this time.   It’s been just over 3 weeks and when I think of her, and I do often, I see her smile and hear her voice.  We love you Sarah.
