Bead Oasis Show

Just a short time ago, I went to Calgary with a friend to the Bead Oasis Show.

It was smaller than I had expected, but we managed to spend some money.

I bought a bead kit, for the most beautiful bracelet. I will post a photo as soon as I get the bracelet finished. I am going to display it in my sewing room in case some of my Brides are in the market for some more jewellry!!

I have never been much of a skiier. Growing up near Saskatchewan didn't leave us alot of slopes! But, my husband is a skiier, and so are our children. So I have been learning.

We spent a weekend in Panorama, British Columbia before ski season ended. We loved it.

I would love to own a place there, and spend every other weekend out there all year round!

I didnt go off the bunny hill, but I enjoyed myself. The kids loved the cable car down to the Village, and they spent all thier time on the hill, or in the hot tub! While coming down the hill one afternoon, my husband and youngest daughter had a close encounter with a Moose and her baby! They both thought it was pretty cool.

Bad Hair day!

It was Crazy hair day at school for my youngest daughter. She got right into the spirit of things, and this is what she looked like when she left for school. When she got home, I threw her in the shower, and used half a bottle of conditioner to get the tangles out! She loved it!

How True!!!???

You Are 16% Control Freak
There's no way you're a control freak. You're totally laid back - and able to take life as it comes.
While you definitely have a healthy mental attitude, don't get suckered into letting someone control you.

You Are a Messenger

You are a great communicator and quite persuasive too.

And to be honest, your also a bit of a gossip. You like to know what's going on with people.

You can deliver almost any message to anyone, and they'll take it better coming from you.

In modern times, you would make a good journalist or diplomat.

For those of you who know me... what do you think?

OK, how true is this?!!!

My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?'
I said, 'Dust.'
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------- My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.'
I bought her a scale.
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------- When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive... so, I took her to a gas station.
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------- After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.
The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'. So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me' and she processed my Social Security application.
When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.
She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too.'
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------- My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.
My wife asked, 'Do you know her?'
'Yes,' I sighed, 'She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.'
'My God!' says my wife, 'who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?'
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -------
I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.
"I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?""
Nah, she can order for herself."
And then the fight started...
------------ --------- --------- ---
A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, 'I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.
I really need you to pay me a compliment.'
The husband replies, 'Your eyesight's damn near perfect.'
And then the fight started.....
------------ --------- --------- ------
I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light for $14.95.
Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95.
I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream.
And then the fight started....
------------ --------- --------- --------- ----- My wife asked me if a certain dress made her butt look big. I told her not as much as the dress she wore yesterday
and then the fight started.....
------------ --------- --------- --------- ------ A man and a woman were asleep like two innocent babies.
Suddenly, at 3 o'clock in the morning, a loud noise came from outside.
The woman, bewildered, jumped up from the bed and yelled at the man 'Holy crap. That must be my husband!'
So the man jumped out of the bed; scared and naked jumped out the window. He smashed himself on the ground, ran through a thorn bush and to his car as fast as he could go.
A few minutes later he returned and went up to the bedroom and screamed at the woman, 'I AM your husband!'
The woman yelled back, 'Yeah, then why were you running?'
And then the fight started.....
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---- Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage.
I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour.
The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed.
I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, 'The weather out there is terrible.'
My loving wife of 10 years replied, 'Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?'
And then the fight started ...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---- I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our anniversary?
It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said.
So I suggested, "How about the kitchen?"
And that's when the fight started....
My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed. I turned to her and said, "Do you want to have sex?"
"No," she answered.
I then said, "Is that your final answer?"
She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying "Yes."
So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."
And that's when the fight started....

Hi there. I am soo sorry about my absence. Life has been busy!

I made this little box yesterday. I am donating it to the school for a silent auction for the Band students. I recyled a PaperTrey Ink box to hold the cards. I think it turned out pretty cute!
These are the cards that I put in the box, minus one, missed it!! All are blank, but pretty cute! It holds 10 cards and envelopes!

Thanks for looking!
