Meet Maxwell

Morning everyone.  As I sat here trying to organize things on my tablet I came across pics of Maxwell that I had taken a few months ago.  He is what occupies my time.  No crafting has gotten done.  With tennis elbow, and a craft area that I just don't feel creative in.  I can't even manage to start organizing my stash.  I think I need the actual space completed to get the feel for it.  That has been talk of working on it again.  Until then, I haves Maxwell.

This is Maxwell.  An Australian Shepherd. He is 11 months, and a very busy boy.  But he gets me out walking when I would normally put it off.  This morning we have already been for walk and played frizbee out in the yard to give him some run time.  I have completed Level 1 & 2 Obedience with him.  And we have two weeks left in Rally for beginners.  Agility was the goal for him, but I'm having fun with the rally.  I've even managed to print off the signs, laminated them, and cut the pots to make a course for the back yard.  

Here he is waiting to try our first course at home.  He did really well.  

Off to get ready for work.  Looking forward to my day off tomorrow.  Hoping sunny skies, no rain.  

keep smilin'

Saying Good Bye

Good afternoon everyone.  I managed to spend a bit of time this morning at my craft table. Needing to make a sympathy card for a former co-worker.  Rob was from my A&P/Metro days.  He and his wife both worked there.  Rob retired two and a half years ago when I left, and Sue stayed on, finally leaving the first of the year when they changed the store to a Food Basics.  Alot of good memories.  So miss all the staff.  Most of them had been with the company since it was Dominion, so long ago now.

Had to go pick up my daughter from school at lunch.  Another bug making it's way aroung the school. We're just sittin relaxing watching The Librarians before I have to go to work.  Another late night.

happy crafting

Hello Baby

Wow, I can't believe it was January when I last posted.  How the time just flies by.  February was spent getting my daughter ready for her trip to France on the March Break.  She had a wonderful 10 days.  And believe it or not this momma actually survived without her baby girl.  Messaging with her everyday helped.  It was alot of firsts for my little girl.  First trip away without us, first plane ride.  The family she stayed with were great.  We had already met Alice, as she was over here the end of October.  Her english was pretty good, so we didn't have a really hard time communicating with her.  I was worried about Sam going there and how she would make out.  But Alice's father was very fluent in english so he helped Sam alot.  But enough of the chit chat, lets get onto why I'm posting.

About two months ago a girl at work found out she was pregnant.  So of course I started crotching right away.  Well, I really had to work fast because the week after she found out her great news was her first ultra sound.  Only to find out that she had two weeks to delivery.  That was it, she was done work and rushing to prepare for baby.

I managed to finish (but not before baby was born) a sweater and blanket.

 I am very proud to be working at Walmart.  As always the staff is there to help out.  Within the two weeks a pot luck and a lunch had been arranged.  The donations were all collected for Vic.  And as always Walmart matches the donation.  How sweet is that.

Here is the card I made.  It felt so good to sit at my desk and finish a card.  I am finding it very hard to get back down to my craft area and get anything completed.

One last thing.  My thoughts today have been for all the people from Fort McMurray.  The devastating fires have forced the evacuation of the entire town. Learning last night that family members were packing up and heading out.  To find out this morning they were safe.  Such great news to wake up to. I just could not image having to go through that.  My thoughts and prayers are with the entire town. Be safe.
