My Trip to the Farm

Today I helped supervise my daughter's SK class. We went to the Green Acres Farm.

I was the lucky parent who only had to supervise 2 children. Two of them were a no show. I have to say though, my girls were perfectly behaved, not like the raging pack of boys a few rows down the isle on the bus. We had a trailer ride around the farm and our tour guide explained about the different animals they had there.
We even got to see the shearing of sheep!

When going to see the Doctor...

these days, you almost need to have a medical degree!

Let me tell you about a little story that could have ended badly. My mother went to the hospital earlier this week to check her eyes. She went in thinking she had cataracts but when they had another look they told her it was glaucoma. They told her they had to laser her eyes right there! After the proceedure she waited for half hour before she could drive home. The next day she went to work feeling a little pain in the eyes. The pain got worse and she had to leave early. It got so bad by the next day and when she could hardly see, she called the hospital. They told her to come back.

When she got there another doctor looked at her eyes. He then asked if she was taking the drops they gave her. "What drops?" she asked. He asked again in disbelief, "they didn't give you any drops?" "No, nothing and I even asked if there was something I should do after the laser treatment" she said.

***Can you spell LAWSUIT****????? WTF, (I don't even swear but it has to be said) what were they thinking??? It turns out because they neglected to give her the drops she had gotten a major eye infection.

They gave my mother a prescription for drops with steroids in it and thankfully, it has been getting better!

So beware people, always read up a little on whatever they(doctors) say you have so that you have a little knowledge and can ask questions that may REMIND some doctor to treat you right!

***my mom won't sue, but I told her to document everything, I guess I just did that for her***

Ring the Alarm!

Another fire's burning ohh oh!

Okay so those aren't the exact words to the song, and I just butchered it. While most people have gone away camping this week-end (it's a holiday weekend for us Canucks), we found ourselves in our back yard in front of our ghetto fire pit. Watching the fire dance is very mesmerizing and magical. I sat there staring without even speaking. The crackling and hissing were music to my ears.

The fire kept the bugs at bay and the chill off my spine. We would have roasted marshmallows, only I forgot to buy some and the ones we had were rock hard.

I was tagged a few days ago by Zuleika of Hobbyzu http://hobbyzu.com/ . What is tagging you might ask. Well, it is a sort of 'get to know you' game that bloggers play. Now on to the

What are the Odds?

This morning my husband called to say his car broke down, so I had to pick him up and take him to borrow his sister's car. After I dropped him off, I went to drop off our daughter at the sitter's. When I approached my car I noticed that I had an ugly flat tire. Now, I'd love to say that I changed the tire all by myself but can't - I almost did though. You see when I jacked up the car and tried to remove the bolts, I realized those babies weren't budging. So I called daddy to the rescue! After much toil and much WD-40 he managed to get them off and put the doughnut on. Then I got the tire patched and went on my merry way to work with dirty pants. Oh well, it could have been worse!
In better news - I was featured by IC Style and Indie collective shopping guide.

What a turn around!

I've been feeling tired and run down all week so I decided I needed a sick day. To my surprise I received this wonderful Mother's day card from my brother. He is in the U.S. Army and is stationed over in the desert. He is such a thoughtful man, always thinking of others. Getting this card really picked up my spirits. Thank you Rae, I love you!

Being home today I was finally able to set up my other computer in my new studio via a wireless router connection - whoo hoo!! Anyone that knows me knows I am totally binary when it comes to computers. I may be a phone tech but computers really challenge me. So I'm sitting here in the comfort of my sewing room updating my blog - how cool is that!?!

I've never Thought of myself

as being a collector, but look what's happening!
I seem to be getting these cool looking white things. I was told they are called Milk Glass by a friend who actually collects them - who knew! I love how retro looking they are. I was attracted to the clean lines and the white just seems to pop against whatever colour your put them against. These will be in my new sewing room. I may put soil and plant some grass or Jade in them. Whatever I do they will look awesome against my turquoise blue walls - if they ever get painted by that husband of mine. I can't wait to see what else I find while thrifting.
