Road-tripping Further Into The Americas

Saturday March 3rd –

 

We woke up, packed up and said our adieus around 8:30, beginning the 7 ish hour drive to AZ.

We stopped in Las Vegas to try out a Greek restaurant the sister had recommend but before we could get to it to eat, we had an appetizer of free, sugar cinnamon pretzels because a pretzel place was celebrating its anniversary 😜👌🏻🥨

 

The Trump Tower was spotted and in no regards to the man or what he stands for and putting all and any political/lifestyle opinions aside… he knows how to make a tower 😎

Art For Afar

Just a little peek at a custom order that I recently completed ☺

I SO appreciate the support and can’t thank you’s enough for taking the time to purchase some of my work 💕

I loved this order for the fact that the verses were picked out personally but the freedom of design and color was pretty much left up to me and my imagination, after some slight consultation with the buyer 😉

Goodbye To Best Buy

Tuesday Dec 26th –

We had planned on having Mom and Dad over for brunch but with an extra four humans at their home, we didn’t have enough supplies 😬

 

 

So I made it for us, alone 😜

 

We then went over to the parents to get in some bonding time.
It did feel a little weird for me to not be around in the same house with my sister visiting but they probably liked it since it meant they got their own room 😜

Mike left for town, having more phone stuff to finish figuring out and not being able to call and ask because it was Boxing Day 🙄
He found out it couldn’t be done IN TOWN either, because though the local Sasktel stores were open, the main tech ish part was not, sooo nothing could be done! 😠 Continue reading “Goodbye To Best Buy”

Core Values Challenged

Wednesday Dec 21st –

 

I mixed up some meatballs and sauce for our supper that night and then Mother retrieved me and I went to her house for the day.

She had requested my help with a big house clean and in return she would help pay for my plane ticket to Winnipeg in January.

That’s right, start of the new year Mom, my aunts, a cousin and I will meet up in Winnipeg for some girl time!

So, if you have been or live there, please let me know some ‘must do’s’!
I believe we will be staying around the Osborne Village area.

 

So, our whole day was spent cleaning and all that entails, including one extra WEIRD thing Mom made me do.
If I hadn’t wanted to have my ticket paid off I would have refused to do the one task she requested, simply because it went against every grain in my being and maybe even my core values :p

She got me to take down clothes from her closest and re-hang them on hangers that matched her other ones…
Had this meant she started with a multi colored, plastic and velvet mixture I would understand.
But she went from plastic whites, to different shaped plastic whites…

Anyways, we had a good a time as two people can have while house cleaning and then she took me home.
I heated up a large batch of the mozzarella tomato sauce, knowing that Mike would soon be able to get more of the packaged mix when he goes to Europe 😉

 

We enjoyed our supper and spent the rest of our evening relaxing and kitten watching.
I urged Mike to take photos of them while they are still young and cute because that’ll be over soon :p Continue reading “Core Values Challenged”

Concocting In Chaos

Thursday Dec 14th –

 

 

Mom was over to complete her wifi work, so between coffees and chats I worked around the house.
Finding more things to unpack, sort and rearranging to mull over 😜

I hauled a dresser in from the garage and washed it up to take up into the craft room, so I could start organizing in there finally.
Deciding that since I love my living room so much, the craft room will probably be more of a storage/guest area for starts 😉

Hubster had cookie business to take care of post work, so he was home late.
My sister had been a dear and sent over a pre-prepared meal to make this ‘move in’ thing easier.
Pull apart buffalo cheese bread, pre chopped veggies, fries portioned for two and even cookies for dessert 😳👌🏻

So that worked out perfectly as I didn’t want the hassle of making a big meal that late in the evening and it was all super tasty and very appreciated  🙂

It’s odd but endearing in a way, Atlas, our little she cat, likes to carry things.
Her toy ball, odd play things, the spoon out of my coffee…? 🙈 Continue reading “Concocting In Chaos”

Freeloaders Afoot

Tuesday Dec 12th –

Mom came over that morning to enjoy my company 😊

No, she actually just wanted the wifi 😏😜

She had things to accomplish online and as stupid as it is, the two minutes that she lives away from us, means she can’t get much cell/internet service at their place 🙄

Not that I minded her coming over 😉

We hung out for the morning, each working on our own things until I served us tomato soup in storage containers, as I found out we have no soup bowls 😜
Post our refined lunch (😉), we went out for a walk as it was a lovely day outside 😏⛅️

Before heading off though, we detoured a few steps over to the post office, so I could put up a sign advertising the pies I’ve been baking ☺️ Continue reading “Freeloaders Afoot”
