Mabel Lake and Yellowstone National Park

In August Don and Luke and I went on a 2 week vacation. We drove through East and West Kootenays/ Idaho/ Washington/ Montana and Wyoming. We visited Yellowstone National Park. The scenery was fantastic. The picture above is one of my favorite memories of Montana. Don was even able to do a little fly fishing on the Clark Fork River. All in all, a great holiday.

The picture of the old barn was taken at one of our favorite camping spots. Mabel Lake, just outside of Vernon, BC. I love old barns. In September we spent a few nights camping at Mable Lake.

Gracie Annabelle Watson has arrived!!

This is Amy - taken with the new camera. Four days overdue.

On June 3rd, 2010 we welcomed the birth of dear Gracie Annabelle. She was born to our daughter Amy and her husband Ben, of Victoria, BC. Weighing in at 9lbs 1 oz, she shocked us all!! What a blessed experience to watch her enter this world.

Luke (the Lab) is 9 months now. He is finally starting to settle down a bit. He enjoys walks and swims and is very sociable. A far cry from Walter with his sociability. :)

I am still having issues with hip/groin/back. Off to a specialist this week.

So here he is. The new dog. AKA as Luke the Lunitic, or "lukatic". He is very mischievious!! He is 4 1/2 months here. Weighing in at about 45 pounds. We wonder what we have done at times.... he is very smart and is in desperate need of a job. He chews everything. He is always in trouble. Stay tuned... he will be growing!!

We have moved!!

It's so nice to be back where we belong!! The move was amazing, thanks to the help of my sweet daughter Amy, and her dear husband Ben and the strength of my strapping young son, Dustin. I have no pictures of the house to post yet, but will get on that soon. The studio has loads of space for all my "stuff". We are enjoying being close to Dustin and our friends again. I am feeling happy again.... The house is slowly getting decorated and the closets are getting organized.
I was invloved in a head on collission and am suffering the effects of that. I am having physio and massage therapy treatments. No relief yet. A young boy hit me, in my lane. Put his foot on the gas instead of the brake and came straight for me!! $11,000. damage to my nice little Honda Accord. I am a little choked. I will post a few pictures, as soon as I take some!!

We are moving!!

We have sold our house here in Okanagan Falls and we are moving to Lake Country. We will be about 15 mintues north of Kelowna, BC. We bought a brand new house!! I never thought I would have another new house in my life time!! The upstairs is an open concept with master and den on that level. The kitchen/dining and great room are combined. It has a gas stove, big walkin pantry, granite counter tops, maple cabinets and maple hardwood floors. The ensuite is gorgeous too!! The builder is finishing the basement for us. It will have a 750 square foot studio, Don will have a sound insulated music room, a guest bedroom, full bathroom and huge storage room. The house was a show home. It will be perfect for Don and I. The yard is normal size, and needs some trees. We are looking forward to this change in our lives. I have added a picture of my quilting machine. As you can see, it requires a lot of space!!

We are missing our dog Walter. Still having daily cries.
