can you believe we are almost at the end of October?

wow, where did that month go? for me, it went by with me wishing for our hot tub to come. we used to sit out on the deck and dream about when it would come and how nice it would be. I can't believe how fast it all went.

I was at Jess' school yesterday as her very first client. She started her clinic time yesterday. I can't believe where all this time has gone too. it seems like just yesterday that we were headed into her school for the admissions interview and exam. She is almost done and ready to start her career as a dental hygienist.

take just a little time today to slow down and enjoy life. it is a wonderful thing and it's just whizzing by.

it's here

I just can't believe it. it seemed like we researched hot tubs for so long -it never felt real. Then once we ordered one, we were told minimum delivery was 4 wks. again, it seemed like forever. well, I called the store yesterday and was told it was in. the only problem was someone needed to get there to pay the balance and to take the chemical course. Gary was about an hour and a half away at work and I was about 45 minutes, but I had to work til 7:30 pm. Gary was able to cut out of work early and get there and get all the necessary bits done. it just so happens that I took vacation tonight so I am home. I am not home on Mondays or Wednesdays for about the next 3 wks when they are able to do deliveries and installs. I guess it was meant to be for today. they got it in the backyard (no easy feat.... it weighs 1100+ lbs dry) and situated where it needed to go and wouldn't you know the heavens opened and the rain started just as they were ready to hook up the electrical. we started filling it with water and the water was brown.... I don't mean off colour... I mean milk chocolate brown. of all days that they water mains get worked on why today? anyways, we drained out the first 8" that was filled and started again. good to see it all for when we need to drain it and do it again ourselves. I will update when the install is all done

it's Monday again.....

how did that happen?? Monday again and time to go back to work. I have a busy week -working Monday and Tuesday and I have to get ready for a meeting I have on Thursday. I am part of a group of nurses that is putting on workshops for other nurses (new hires and preceptors) on intrapartum labour support. I was asked by my manager if I wanted to be our hospital's labour support expert and I jumped at the opportunity. It is a bit unnerving at the moment. Thursday's meeting is the "dress rehersal" for the actually workshop that gets rolled out starting the beginning of November. It will be a crazy fun busy time for me as these workshops happen.

I scrapped a little yesterday.... it keeps me sane and grounded. The new DT will be announced very soon at S:CY..... wish me luck

my fairy name

so this is my fairy name

Your fairy is called Tangle Elfglitter
She is a cheerful sprite.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate green wings like a cicada.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I have so much to be thankful for. I have a wonderful family that I am truly blessed to have. My niece Cassidy competed in her very first horse show. She's 20 mths old. All of my siblings and my Dad came to support her. My other niece and nephew also competed. It was a great day and it was so nice that we were all together. It felt like it did 25 years ago when my sister and I were competing.

I hope you all have made many memories that you are thankful to have this weekend.

my GDT work

I received my kit for Scrapbooking Fanatics. I am thrilled to get to work with Magenta products. It is a Canadian company and the papers are to die for. They are heavy weight and work up so nicely. This is what I have come up with so far.......

Sunday morning

so it's Sunday morning..... I love Sunday mornings. they are so laid back. I tend to get up early and get the doggies looked after then I surf around and usually get inspired to scrap. It is my favourite time of the day to scrap. (no distractions)This is what I was up to this morning

I have just finished a couple of shifts at work and I am going in for a couple of more nights starting tonight, so I like to just laze around today. see you on the other side of those shifts

here is my great news. Jayme asked me to be guest designer at Scrapbooking Fanatics. how awesome is that?? Jayme keeps getting the latest and greatest product in and it goes pretty darn quick too. The gallery is full of wonderful talent and the forum is full of the nicest, most supportive people you could ever want to be around. and the icing to this big piece of yummy cake is that my dream layout has been chosen for layout of the day to boot. I am truly a lucky lady!!!
