Still finding the time to thrift,
take photos on our walks
as well as make a few more bracelets.
Not putting in time, but enjoying the time we have before we leave.
Lots of last minute things to do.
As well, there is lots of time to just relax
now that all the main packing has been done.
Time to visit friends,
go for long fall walks, craft, knit and read.
As I write this, it's raining out side.
Our valley is covered in a low gray fog that doesn't lift
Time for some Thai sunshine.
First leg of our flight after leaving here will be
Vancouver to Hong Kong,
then on to Bangkok, then a bus to Hua Hin.
Then the beach.
Yes the count down continues.
Finishing most of the packing,
My list is getting shorter and shorter each day.
Some of my time is being taken
up by cleaning out the garden pots, some still blooming so beautifully.
Taking time to get some of my
knitting and crochet supplies to take along.
Knitting a row or two when I have a few spare moments.
It's all very good and exciting.
7 more sleeps before we fly out.
My love for colour is well known.
I don't own one article of clothing that is black.
My colour palette is mostly pinks, turquoise mixed in with
some white and beige.
I am the happiest using and wearing lots of colours.
Back from Vancouver Island..it was great seeing our
friends and seeing family.
The seasons changing, our first frost here today.
Cooler morning, rainy days, shorter days and cooler nights.
The countdown to our holiday is only
a couple of weeks away.
Here are a few photos,
love the mist on the lakes on our drive down.
Jim enjoying our walk and celebrating his birthday
on Oct 6.
It sure is a very good life and I am very very grateful.
We have enjoyed having our friends visiting from Vancouver Island.
We travel to the Island tomorrow morning to stay with them and see
Jim's cousin Wayne and Jo-Ann.
Enjoying my visit last week with
Claire, Jeremy and Julie.
Celebrating Jeremy's 43rd birthday!
(How is it possible that those years have passed so quickly?)
Remembering my wonderful Mother.
It seems to me that 16 years seems like such a long
time to be without the wisdom and love
of this kind and loving women.
