I’m back! Back to blogging that is…I missed you guys so much!
I decided to take a little break from blogging these past couple of weeks so I could work on decluttering my house as I mentioned previously HERE and to try to re-group mentally. My husband was also out of town so I was a single Mom for a good chunk of that time. It was interesting being on my own to say the least! Kudos to all of the single Mom’s out there for managing to keep on top of everything on your own!
So what else have I been up to for the past couple of weeks? Well, last weekend my kids and I decided to take a trip down south to Calgary to go to the Stampede. You can read about what the Stampede is all about here. The main reason we went there was to visit my husband who was working there. Also, this would be our first time attending this event and we were curious to see how the Stampede Midway compared to our local Midway in Edmonton.
The Midway at the Stampede is basically a gigantic carnival with rides, games, exhibits and loads of fattening foods. We were excited to attend because it’s not like we get to do this sort of thing every day as it only happens during the summer. That’s a good thing because you can spend over $200 in an hour with the cost of the entrance fee, the ride tickets, the games etc. Nevertheless, my kids and I found a few Stampede favorites which were the cinnamon mini donuts, the handglider ride, the horse exhibit and the water shooter game. So much fun!
I had planned to take my camera so I could take some photos to show you all but I forgot my camera back at the hotel which was a 45 minute drive away. Doh! Then I thought I could just use my cell phone to take some photos but its battery was almost dead! In the end I was only able to snap a couple of photos of these Tee-pee’s to share with you from the Native Indian exhibit.
Oh how I wished I was prepared and remembered to charge my electronics before we left the hotel! I can be so scatter-brained sometimes. Haha!
Anyway, I am now back into the swing of things blogging-wise (a word I just made up) and I have a couple of completed projects to show you and many more projects in various stages of completion.
Here is a sneak peek of a little project I worked on yesterday; this super easy DIY lace flower vase. Stay tuned for the tutorial coming up early this evening.
It feels great to be back! What have you all been up to? I would love to hear from you.
Until next time…
