So was I. Mum said if they were rude and wouldn't talk to me, to pack up and come home. Think of it as a donation and leave that *beep* behind. So I was happy that I didn't have to do that.

HI,
I always have tons to scrapbook too. I have a huge bag of photos. It's tough as everything is at my Mum's place and when I go up there, I ended up visiting instead of scrapbooking. I went to the all-day event for Children's Theatre and it turned out well. The ladies were wonderful, I was asked to sit with a group of ladies for lunch and supper, so that was very nice. I had a table with one of the ladies and even though I know her (she's a doctor's wife), we haven't officially met - so she introduced herself. She also acknowledged that she's seen me at other scrapbooking events, so said it was nice to be formally introduced. I finally finished my Disneyland scrapbook started a year ago.

Good morning.

You cannot see the smoke in the air, but it's still around. It's not thick though and right in your face. The fires are still burning well, it'll be like that until the snow puts them out. At least it's not thick, that's a good thing.

I have quite a few friends from elementary and high school, however, not in this region. Well I do, but we walk different life paths, so don't hang out anymore. Shelly is the only childhood friend that I spend time with here in town.

I find this town hard on someone like me - over 50, single, no children and not religious. I'm also not into sleeping around, using drugs or drinking. That means basically I don't fit in. haha!!

For me? I live in a town where everyone that I used to spend time with, left. They were the smart ones. haha! My friend Shelly is here, but she doesn't can or harvest produce any longer either - not since the kids all left. Besides, she doesn't live here in town, she's out in the country and while it's not far, we don't get together the way we used to.

Well it's really smokey here as the fire to the west has really taken off again. Looks like its around 5 or 6 PM out there, it's so overcast.

I think with the seniors place, that's the issue - they love to grow the vegetables and have fresh during the summer, but need help to process in the fall. They are also very limited on space in their tiny apts - the ones on the independent living side - and probably don't have room to put vegetables away after processing them. Back in the day the place used the vegetables and processed them up in the fall, to use in the winter. I'm not sure if no one was interested or if regulations make that you cannot do that now.

The community garden - I think that is laziness, as people buy their boxes and are expected to process their own veggies. I thought of getting a box, but I honestly don't have the space. I do better just buying one bag of frozen veggies in the winter and eating on that - as even that takes me time. I think the single mum who was talking to me was ticked because I know she would have processed all that spinach for winter....and the potatoes and the carrots and on and on. She had already done her garden up.

Thank heavens at least the beets were not wasted.Probably these same people will complain they can't afford things in winter.The real problem is that harvesting them involves work.

Exactly Cheri!!!!

Heck the food bank here would have sent out volunteers and harvested up the produce. They take fresh produce, and meat, along with canned goods. I just don't get it, still not harvested. I did see though at work, someone harvested the beets, so that's good.

Yeah I don't get it with the community garden boxes either. If the people who planted the boxes didn't want the produce, there are many who would have taken it off their hands - including going down and harvesting it all.

As for the dog, that is murder in my books - you know what happens with a dog and a hot car, there is absolutely no excuse!!!

How sad whyever did they not use the produce in the gardens? They have community gardens here in Edmonton but they tend to get well used. Single mothers groups run one .The Native Friendship Centre has a beautiful one. Sacred Heart Church has one that supplies the meals for the homeless .

Maddie would be there in a heartbeat, Cheri, if she was close and help you with the garden. She said in her very wise young voice, "Auntie, Al should be out there doing the garden because Cheri has hurt hips!" She was quite adamant that you should be inside relaxing and Al should be outside working. I think if she was there, she'd get Al moving. She even stomped her foot when she said it. LOL!!

You'd be sad at the gardens here, what a waste of produce. The boxes outside my window have been bit by the frost. No one is taking out the produce - there are beets, carrots, lettuce, I think potatoes and not sure what else. I think they even grew beans. At the community garden last night a few of us were commenting on how sad it is to see the spinach go to seed and other produce ruined from not being picked. There were zucchini so large that they'd be nothing but "wood" now. Speaking of, I should process the one in my fridge tonight and freeze it. I like to pull it out in the winter and make zucchini bread.

I hope you have a productive day.

Great Cheri, now I have that Pink Floyd song playing in my head beside George Canyon's "Slow Dance." They really don't merge well either! LOL!!

Thanks for the goodie, Scrapbook Cafe. :)

I couldn't sleep past 5:30AM, not sure why. I might lay down for a bit here, before I have to get up for work. I might not. I don't know. haha!!

Cheri, I've had issues with my online email, so let me know if you haven't heard from me for the past days. It literally ate your last email, thank goodness I just read it! I dumped some things that got added into my computer when I was updating a media driver, did a defrag and ran a scan, and it's all acting better today, so I hope that it was simply that.

I hope everyone has a good day!

I hope so too Gladys has worked her heart out to provide for Wes because even his disability pension and AISH would not have covered his care and I shudder to think what would have happened to him without Gladys and Sieg.She never minded doing anything for Wes but like you said this is bull crap.

That makes zero sense Cheri. I know that our provinces and territories have their own legislation on health care coverage but that is beyond contempt!! A suggestion is to call the Alberta Ombudsman to intervene in this case.

https://www.ombudsman.ab.ca/complain
ts
/before-filing-a-complaint/


I read it over and it does cover complaints concerning Alberta Healthcare. If I were there I'd do it on their behalf. It can be filed online. If the ombudsman cannot oversee the issue, the department should inform the family of the correct people to contact about this issue. It should not matter that they decided Wes was healthy enough for a nursing home as they know there is a waitlist and in the past, that was covered by Alberta Health. That really makes me angry that they did that. Gladys and her family do not need to worry about or deal with that type of thing - it should be covered. It is very obvious that they made an error in judgment and as such, should write down that he was receiving health care while waiting for a bed in a nursing home - which would then make it covered by health care. The bloody **BEEP**. That's just so wrong!!

I don't think they set anything up like that for Wes I will find out.It was such a small funeral and it was mainly family and we all sent flowers .Gladys is a bit choked at the university hospital.They said he was healthy enough to go to a nursing home so they put him on a waiting list for a nursing home and on the 10th day he died .They billed her 2000 dollars for him being in the hospital when they deemed him healthy enough for a nursing home, well they obviously did not make him better he frigging died !!!!!! I think it sould have been covered under ALberta health.

I would love to see the scrapbook pages of Wes. Do you know if they have set up where we can donate money to MS in memory of him? I know it's often done with cancer and heart, so was wondering if it was done for him.

Maddie loves mail, that's for sure. I told her you might be looking for French books and her eyes lit right up. She's sure keen on learning. I wish you were close so you could help out.

I just caught up on the posts and will share that it was very fun visiting with you Cheri. I was sorry about Wes, he sure will be missed. I hope it goes well at your Epicure party as I'm sure it will be fun!! Maddie asked if we can start doing scrapbooking. Oh no does that mean winter is coming? It's still too warm, too dry and too much smoke to be winter yet. hahaha! Are you ladies working on any projects?

She is slowing down quite a bit. These days she seems to have appointed herself the squirrel patrolman of the neighborhood. No more long walks unless I carry her. She can do about 2 miles & then asks to be carried. And Lacey?

Hi! I'm heading out tomorrow for my road trip. I think. Yeah I am, not sure where but I'm pretty sure I'll be up north in a couple days. Then over to see Cheri next week. Hope everyone is well.

Gosh it's been quiet here. Sorry I'm really behind in photos and put that weird scrapbook away until winter. I don't usually do scrapbooking in the summer unless I'm around when the folks go on vacation. This year it doesn't work out as we are both heading out in August.

How is everyone doing?

Right now when you try to open it up, it kinda falls apart, it doesn't really fold out nicely and it's - well - a mess. I have to sit down and really look it over. It reminds me of books my friend Sandra made, then later purchased from Michael's, where you have preset pages, ribbons used to hold it together and it folds out to lay down the photos for viewing. This is more like "stuck" so I have to see if it's a flaw or if I'm just doing things wrong.

It's up at my parent's place, so if I remember, I'll do that. It's like the ones you make, where you tie them up together, then when you open it up, it lays out flat across a table. I think that's what it is supposed to be like. Honestly, I'm not sure. haha!

My mum has the scrapbooking room and periodically she goes in to clean it up. I admit, Maddie and I are really bad for making messes. We work hard to keep it organized but some days, it doesn't happen.

I got a memory book from the gift basket given to me for 20 yrs service. It isn't that great, as you cannot fully open it up. I'm going to take it to my friend Sandra and see if there is a way we can modify it, to make it nicer for using.

Actually yes, I'd love that - simple, easy and cheap to make Easter crafts would be appreciated. We have a hour, but do opening and that always takes time, so I usually plan a craft that will take about 30 min. THanks!

Yup if we could get together with Maddie and Kayleigh, oh what fun we would have eh!

Maddie called last night, so I gave her the low-down. We'll do the eggs this w/e and next w/e we'll make her daddy's rabbit birthday cake. We found a rabbit pan in the city last w/e. She's really excited. :)

I will let you know. I think the key is not to mix the colours in the shaving cream, but rather swirl the colours with a toothpick. That way the egg picks up the colours and it stays as a swirl. It's too bad we can't go outside to do this, but hey, if it's nice, maybe Grandpa will set up the TV tray on the deck. That way we don't step on the muddy ground, but are still outside. 'Cause with me and her, you know it'll be messy! LOL!

Definitely only....well...I thought both sticker packs I got from Michaels were Hello Kitty stickers. It turned out one pack were tattoos. haha! She was thrilled and on top of it, they were good tattoos. They went on really nice and brilliant colours. I got them for $1.50, so the price was right too. I also picked up a pack of Minnie Mouse stickers that were on sale.

However, scrapbooking may end up going to the side on the wkend because my friends shared about shaving cream, food dye and dying eggs. It looks fun and my one friend said it works really well. I think we should try it.

I thought I had posted here, oops. It was a good visit with my uncle. Maddie was shy, so was very quiet around him. After 15 min or so we took off to my place, left her Dad to visit. We didn't do scrapbooking this weekend because I went to the city. I am piling up her photos though, for her to choose from and print. We also picked up more stickers when we were in the city, so she can use them for her book too.

haha! That's true especially after being away last weekend. My uncle is supposed to be coming up too. He's really cool, so I'm pretty sure Maddie will want to visit him too. She hasn't met him yet. Everything happened around the time she was born, and last year my parents went down to see him, so this is the first time up here in years. He's my Mum's younger brother.

It was an okay weekend, and very quiet as Miss Maddie was visiting her grandparents in Terrace. Saturday night I said to my folks that it was really odd to sit still and have so much quiet, no zoom zoom zoom, Come On Auntie, happening. LOL!!

I'm hoping this Saturday we work on her scrapbook, but it'll depend on what her plans are.

Cheri, I think the tribute to Don is a wonderful scrapbook project and down the road, Sharon will really appreciate the book. How beautiful for you to do that for her. I know for myself, everything hit about 6 months down the road because by then, folks are back doing their every day stuff, there isn't anything to be dealing with and you are alone with all the memories. She'd probably really need a good friend sharing a special book at that time, for sure.

Lacey would be a great subject for scrapbooking! I told Maddie when she returns from visiting her grandparents in Terrace, we'll finally pull off the photos for her, from the computer and start working on her book. I figure if you have a couple Lacey pics, that would be terrific and if not, I have the ones from last summer. :)
