My Mama

It has already been almost 1 year since my mama died of cancer. I have been at peace with her leaving and happy she is not struggling but as this first year creeps up on me, I realize how much I miss her. I wish we could have one more day just to visit, to laugh, to talk about anything. I know that will not happen but I wish.
I know that in time the feelings will not be so strong but I did not realize they would feel this intense at this time!
I love my Mama!

Skim Boarding 101

Jake bought his skim board and was great at it from the first try. He was teaching Amanda and it is a lot harder than it looks!

Wool Heaven

MacAusland's Woolen Mill
Prince Edward Island

I can not believe we found this cool place. I knew yarn came from sheep and how they carded and made it into wool to knit with but I dis not know places like this family run place existed. It was AMAZING, I loved it. And it smelled like wool!
The greatest thing was a ball of yearn was only $2.50 and all natural. I can not believe I did not buy the whole place out. It was so neat. And you could walk through as you wished. It was so awesome.
Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas???

Red Dirt Shirts

The sand and dirt in PEI is so red, it is the coolest thing ever, except that is turns every white thing red. There is a huge market of 'dirt' things. We were going to buy some but then Shona and the kids made dirt shirts. It was so cool!
