I have planned since Wednesday on a completely different post than this - I want to share some goodies I received recently in the mail and also a new little piece I completed..........HOWEVER that post will have to wait for a week or so.

Tomorrow I fly from Ontario to Vancouver (I am SUCH a nervous
flyer and coming and going is definitely the part of a trip like this that I dread. Ativan, here I come!)

Nicole, our eldest daughter will be accompanying me. She lived in Vancouver for six years and will be spending some of the time getting caught up with old friends. Keara and her boyfriend just returned from Vancouver after attending her cousin's wedding, seeing her grandpa and showing off all the marvels of this beautiful province to her boyfriend (who absolutely loved it).

By 4:00 pm Eastern time tomorrow, I will be in the land of enchanted forests,

tranquil waters and majestic mountains! Love Vancover!

My main reason for visiting however is to see my Dad. He is now 87 and within the last year he has become rather frail. It is really sad that a five hour flight separates us. He is pictured above on July 22, at my niece's wedding.

I'm borrowing Keara's laptop, however am not sure just what the wireless situation will be like once I am over in Gibson's (Sunshine Coast) where my Dad lives. If I can post I will.

When I return I hope to get back to posting regularly and also leaving comments on all my friends' blogs! (I have been reading them!)

Oh Gosh

I've been avoiding the computer for the last few days in an effort to promote healing of my wrist and shoulder. It IS working and both are starting to feel better and I do have more mobility. I desperately want to get back to my sculpting, and doing all the other things (washing hair, getting dressed, pulling self out of pool, driving without gritting my teeth, etc) I have have totally taken for granted before having these problems.

Sooooo, I've been taking it easy and laying low.

Unfortunately, I am way behind in catching up with all the blogs I follow.

I don't want to overdo it, but do hope to get back to abit of blog following today. It's extremely hot and humid here (feels like 108F with the humidity) and because I can't go in the pool, sitting in the a/c and blog following sounds like a great idea.

Finally, and Oh Gosh, am I ever starting to feel old. Silly limb injuries and aches......and my youngest daughter turned 24 yesterday. It seems like only yesterday that I was, like now, cursing the hot summer weather, and wishing for this baby to put in an appearance.

Happy Birthday Keara!

Some early surprises delivered to her office yesterday.
