I would have blogged last eve, but our net connection in the eve is nill or super super slow. Anywayyyyyyyyyyy don't need it other than to do my fitbit really. Got that and then tried to do some spark but is not worth it click and waiiiiiiiiiiiit, then lose the page.
SO!! pictures will be up when we get home and have wii fii. Have had a super week here at the trailer well not quite a week yet. NO rain, but cool enough nights to sleep with window open. SO quiet here in am, and hubby does so much better with that, he hears stuff like traffic and garbage trucks. Even the kids next door aren't up till after 8 - haven't seen them yet today. Allie is doing well at sleeping till 7, fine by me, we go out for our walk and there may be a few awake at their picnic tables or some days no one. Mostly during the week noone around that early.
My knee has been bothering me a fair bit, super super tight so have to get more diligent about doing my exercises while I am here. Getting in the walking and such but haven't stretched as much, doign some on the bed but not as good as the hard floor.
Yesterday was FANTASTIC!!! Chris, ds, came out for a visit with Thomas and Eva, mama was at a baby shower for the day. They arrrived just before lunch, and stayed till after 5. There was only 1 meltdown and it wasn't too long. Thomas wanted to go swimming and mama forgot to put in their little swimmer pants which are mandatory in the pool. Sign said they sold them, but they no longer do.... he wasn't understanding why but didnt cry too long or lay down and roar. lol BUT man is tha child busy. GO GO GO touch touch, ask ask! LOL so funny.
Eva is so quiet, and happy but almost like a serene quality but she can stamp her little tiny feet and say NO very well and copy when she wants. They were both scared of Allie, and she of course so excited and wanted to jump. So hubby held her back for long while and all 3 settled. But Thomas still didnt want her around him so he learned to say STOP DOG ALLIE, PEPE says SIT. lol he would stick his hand out in stop motion and Eva sitting on Papas lap woudl do it too. lol
So we went for walk up to the playground, did the usual and also took countless rocks out of Thomas' sandals. Then we walked down a long lane to the petting zoo well it has bunnies, goats, baby goats , lamb, sheep and a donkey. Eva was enamoured with the bunnies and fed them grass. Thomas was liking it all. From there we went to get ice cream baby cones. which he said to the girl I like icecream please, oh wow thanks much. He doesnt get that stuff often.
they ate a good lunch and then we went in for bit to rest. HA. read library books that I had brought up in case they came. Later we went on the tractor wagon ride which he loved and eva was fine to sit on papas lap. Thomas waved and yelled hi to everyone. So funny such a personable little guy. HI Hi there hey didnt you hear me HI. lolPepe guess they didnt hear me. Hubby said guess not.
Since the pool was a wash, we put our outside shower on and washed them off and let them run in in a bit. Then back in and got ready to go home. Ds texted that they got home safe and sound and both had naps in the car. lol He said we will be back again had a great time with lots to do.
I was so happy to have a day with them and not just be in the living room and able to do. I am going to keep the books here and bring up some other stuff for them too. Petrhaps get 2 of the little kids chairs to sit in also. Even if they only come a few times it is nice to know they have stuff here.
Today we were goign to go visit hubby's sister ( one with hubby issues ) but one of their good friends is seriously ill in hospital. He isnt well so she is working and ferrying his wife around to see him. So no problem we will see her again next time.
Maybe go for a little drive not sure or just hang around, visit next door, go for walks. just a nice day.
Well for now, have to get some breakfast and get on with the day. HUGS all have a great day too!

Well had some pain but not too bad,mostly my knees. Super hot was 100 n our deck this afternoon. that is really hot for us, considering it was 60 2 days ago, 70 yeesterday. Whew.
Had to take some papers over to Dil, so had a good visit with Thomas and Eva. She is starting to potty train herself, enough so that it is easier to leave the diaper off her and shew ill go sit on the potty. Thomas at 3.5 still very little interest although he can as he is dry all night will wake and go in am, but during the day won' bother. She is hoping that Eva will be showing Thomas. Today he was so excited. he calls me a nanna I thought he was saying anna his mums name but I said what mama, and he says OH sigh NO you a nanna. lol " I went to the dentist. ( oh really that is neat was it good) yea yea I got a new toothbrush it is orange my favorite colour and I went in papas car.
What a boy and he doesnt sit still. Eva was sitting on her bed, surrounded by books,hi, baby,kitty meow... dog woof, she is so funny too but a quiet funny. he is all boy busy.
Then dd came down to do dads socks, and we went to the fabric store. I found a pattern for a log cabin table runner that I want to make for sil for xmas. Hmmm as we have s sil that quilts so should be interesting but I don't care if it is as great as hers just that I made it for the other sil. lol Took the two ladies a long time ( we were there 2 hrs but that was also picking colours), to figure what materia.l. as the pattern didnt say 1 yard of... a, 2 yard sof b, it said 1 yard of light red with dots, it named the fabrics and some were hard to figure and then we had to transfer it to what I had bought! OMG then OMG OMG she forgot to put the paper she wrote it alld own on for me in the bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sure she will see it and say oh that lady will be back in the am! LOL anyway sure hope so.
one said is the dark and is leaves on 2 of the prints and a plain and the other side is the lighter and is flowers and a plain but cos the strips are small won't look like leaves adn flowers. but the colours work well together.
thes are laid out in the order they will be. hope it is a good picture.
So came home ready to draw the square and write it out and no paper. OMG so can go down at 9:30 in the am! LOL
Now it is still 84 in here with no fan and no air as we rarely need it. kitchen and bedroom have ceiling fans... but other fan is in living room. So now I am going to go to bed, read and drink cold water!!! HUGS and have a great day
ack to say the pics dont show the brightness or true colours but you can get the gist of it.

can you say a prayer for my friend Gail... she has chronic lukemia, which I had never heard of till I met her. I met her at one of my nursing home jobs, She is a bit older than I, and was sick then, She is a nurse, has a port in her upper chest to inject her own meds. She is always in pain but at that time was working, then would have to take 2 -3 wks off cos of exhaustion.
Has been off work for ages now and FINALLY got accepted as disabled and money from long term. You know what made her get it, the dr wrote and said all I am doing for her now is comfort measures, which is comprable almost to palliative care.
Well saw her name and number on the fridge yesterday adn thought of her. Today while we were at the grocery store who did we see but Gail. She is looking good. Just back from her dr from nerve blocks which she has to have often. But she is waiting for some shot in her spine as the issues have led to otthers which now are bothering her bowels etc. She said the nerve block shots are wicked but her pain is worse, but these ones in her spine are so bad even she hates to go.
Said she is okay, holding her own, loving her dog, and still making cards. I am not a religious person, spiritual yes, but Someone is taking care of her, whoevr you want to call it, her , him... Her hubby left her long ago, her kids are married and she really relies on 2 friends.
A few years ago she Gail, put a benefit together for her friend who had breast cancer. Here she is with lukemia, and very ill yet she does all the work to get a benefit going for someone else. I hope that people step up to the plate for her. I made her 2 scarves last year and think that the one I am doing now will be for her too. Perhaps I will buy a pc of guaze type to make her a spring one. She wears them to hide her port.
So after seeing her and just loving her, the most gracious and giving person I have met along with my friend Tanna,( the one with breast cancer then lung cancer) I feel blessed to be as healthy as i am, able to do what I do.
I am going to finish up here, and go make a card for Gail and get the last tiny bit of scarf done and take over to her. She is such an amazing woman............. SO SO thankful to have met and learned from her.

Happy Canada day to all my Canadian Spark friends from coast to coast and those that live else where.
We have had such strange weather today, rain, downpours, sun, rain, sun, downpours So now the sun is going in but not raining. The street is actually drying up. Who knows.....
Hubby suggested a drive today, so we went to an area we have never travelled and decided not to look at houses in that area any longer. I really think it may be on our land as we have wanted for so long. But not sure yet.
I started getting a headache behind my eyes, an hr or so ago. Hubby had one earlier. Probably the diff weather although doesnt feel as if it is sinus at all. oh well it will leave.
Going to go ask dad if he wants to come up for bbq.. he isn't eating much. last night had strawberries for supper but didnt want what we were having. he did have a big brunch though.
Well my house is a mess, and I am in the mood to make a list for tomorrow.lol Right now just being here is nearly too much with my eyes. Guess will go up and do a bit on my journal or maybe just go lay and read for bit.
Talk to you all later and again happy Canada Day for a proud Canadian to many others

Mum would have been 87 today but instead we just wished her a happy birthday on our own. I miss her so much but know that she didn't need more days the way she was.
So instead dad wanted to go out for breakfast, then he actually went to costco with us, he walked the perimeter while hubby stayed with him and I went down the aisles to get what I needed. Not a long visit which was fine as it was so busy.
We found a tick on Allie just below her collar on her back, We got it out and hope we don't find any more. YUK! She wasn't impressed with hubby flipping her trying to keep her still, and he ended up sitting on her sort of. but we got it and then just loved her lots.
Later we went over to Thomas and Evas and had a good visit. They were so funny, he is so all boy and she is so tiny, quiet and playing in the little kitchen on the deck pouring water from one thing to the other. Got some good pics but they are on ds phone so he will put them up later. I will share after I get them.
Did a page of my art journal this eve, butw as so humid upstairs......... whew.
Now should go have a shower and go to bed. Very sticky - calling for more rain. geesh. but thankfully no flooding here.
HUGS all and hope you all sleep well or have a great day!
Early HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! I can hear the fireworks but not see them, jst a bit too far away.
