the things we do for our hubby's

Spent an awful night worrying that the alarm clock won't go off...as we had to get up at 5 AM, Larry had an appt for a colonoscopy at 7:15 this morning... nothing serious, but he had one last year and she wanted to check up on him, so as he showered i went out and let the dogs out... we over feed the sheep last night so we didn't have to worry about them that early... i am sure glad he drove to Kamloops, it was way too early for me... I got to drive home as he was "legally impaired"..things were fine. The weather was great, warm and sunshine... and wind..
We had a guild meeting on Wednesday, we went back to our old room, still wasn't too clean, but we are much more relax there... you won't believe what we talked about... everything from our current projects to body lice, to parasites..lots of giggles... We have even thought about our next guild project..a wimple, or neck scarf or mobius, or something similar...sure found some interesting patterns.. thought i would make one out of silk for my buddy who rides " a Harley".. her new granddaughter got a little t shirt that says "My grandmother rides a Harley".. i have tons of silk, "the socklady" gave me pounds of it at the Desert Mesa retreat in October, so i think i might spin up and dye some wild colours as she is WILD...I have been spinning up some Cashmere and silk that my wonderful friend Isabel gave me..it is for ME... Isabel and Toni gave me a lovely book on circular shawls... so i think i will make me one out of CASHMERE and SILK...i can hardly wait... I am working on a shawl that is so easy, it is for a beginner, but when it comes to the very little bit of lace, i am stumped...you start from the top down and the lace starts near the bottom... but there is over 300 stitches on the needles, so if you make one mistake you don't know until you get to the end... i don't know how many times i 'frogged" it yesterday..i will have to spend a very quiet afternoon and concentrate on it...
We are going out for supper on Saturday nite with one of my agility buds and her hubby, who has been a friend for years..all Jack and Larry talk about are boats.. Right after Larry broke his leg, someone stole our wood splitter..which was really upsetting as we really needed it at that time... anyway Larry built himself one this past summer, and lent it to Jack a couple of weeks before Christmas, Jack brought it back couple of days before Christmas, and loved it so much that he bought himself one that had been in an accident... he was describing it to Larry, and as it turns out it was the one that was stolen from us... poor Jack felt so bad that he wanted to give it back to us... we didn't need it and were perfectly happy to let Jack have it... anyway Jack feels so guilty that they are taking us out for supper.... we are going to Hans Wok... a new Chinese restaurant in town... with really great Chinese food..hot, not greasy and very tasty... they are starting a buffet in Feb, so that should be great for lunches...
I am heading off to Lake Cowichan for Valentines, Jeanette is having a retreat... i try to go every other year... Toni's barn fell down over the winter, i want to get some old barn board so Larry can make me some picture frames.. for a bunch of wild life pictures that i have and to frame some of his scroll saw work...I usually walk on, but can ya imagine me getting off the ferry with a load of lumber under my arm....going down on Wed the 11th, spending the night with my Mom and heading over to the island on Thursday, and then Toni and Isabel and i are off to the retreat on Friday, will spend Sunday with Toni and then back to Moms and then home on Tuesday...hope the weather is good.... better go and fix supper... have a great day....S

Am now showing up arriving from Kamloops instead of a far distant place in Alberta. Nothing close to where I live shows up so 'Campbell soups' it is.
