Not Been Away, that's for sure!

Wow, I've just got nothing to tell everyone. It's not that we don't enjoy ourselves with the little things but this waiting and waiting is getting "long in the tooth" if you know what I mean!

Let's see where we are......

We did go for a day-camping trip up to Golden Ears Park near the end of February.This was for part of Jasper's 6th birthday celebration. Like many kids, he didn't have the "normal" birthday party. Instead, he wanted to be able to roast hot dogs at the campground. That's what we did. (In case anyone is wondering, we are the "bubble" family together so it is fine for us to be together - lucky for us that's for sure.)



Best buddies...

Happy 6th birthday Jasper!!


It was amazing to see how many people were up at Golden Ears that were actually camping. It wasn't very warm but it could have been worse, that's for sure. I'm not sure what we were expecting but it wasn't to see so many folks up there. It was nice for BC Parks coffers.

After that I kept myself busy packing up and moving my Mom. She moved to an awesome active seniors living community and is loving it. Phew!!

So now we wait. Doug is due to retire at the end of this month (yippee) and he can't wait. We will stay in our condo for now as, like everyone else, we aren't sure what Covid has in store. Meanwhile we will begin a bit of work on Filmore (our motorhome), just some redecorating things. We unfortunately believe that our dreams of going to Tuktoyuktuk this summer have been dashed but we will just have to plan ahead for next year. We are hoping to at least be able work our way around BC's parks. Again, here's hoping.

Unwrapped and ready to go....where?

Almost looks like we are going somewhere.

Inventory time at the back of 
Doug's office, 10 minutes away from storage....

Got my vaccine on Saturday. Pretty happy about that. Doug gets his on Friday this week.


So, that's it. Hope you are all keeping healthy and safe. 

Peace out friends.

Thought for the DayBuddha says...The trouble is, you "think" you have time.

  1. You're doing more than you think by hanging with Family.
    I know that Doug is looking forward to Retirement but as long as the Borders are closed it might be wise to do some extra banking.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. No chance he is staying at work. At 68 yrs old, I think he has earned his retirement!

  2. I know we still have to be caution, follow the rules, and stay at home as much as possible, but it is getting exciting with the thought of travel. Congrats to Doug on his retirement. Let's hope we see you this fall, maybe!

    1. Goodness, we certainly hope to meet you, sooner than later! It is our "plan" to head to MX this winter but we usually don't leave until after Christmas. Here's to fingers crossed!

  3. I am so very excited, I am finally able to make comments again. I think that it is so sweet that Jasper wanted a "camping style" birthday. Looks like he is an RVer in the making. Best get booking your summer camping spots, I am surprised at how booked everything already is. Colin is not retired but he is responsible for the twins so I suspect he won't be working much. I am still hopefull that the border will open.

    1. All our grandsons have been camping since before they could walk so they are definitely well seasoned! Yes, we thought Jasper's birthday request was awesome and since we are their bubble family we got to go. So much fun!!
