I'm Back

OK, I'm so sorry that I have been gone for so long. We are now back in Ohio for 3 weeks and boy have I missed all my stuff!!!   I love my stuff!!!   As a women or maybe it's just those of us who craft and create, we do have lots of stuff.  It makes me very happy and being away from it for two months has made me realize how much my stuff means to me.  I need to take some of it back with me.

Before we left Calgary we did have a great weekend in the mountains.  We went to Lake Louise to go hiking and biking.  We went hiking but it was still "winter" or "sprinter" which is spring/winter to the Canadians.

As you can see there is still snow EVERYWHERE!  It was uphill on a snowy/icy narrow path and if you slipped off the path you were in snow up to your knee.  We also had Oliver with us who was a trooper on the way up but decided he didn't want to walk down and would just stop.  He ended up in my backpack and fell asleep until I slipped then he was a little uneasy.

We stayed in a town called Canmore which is a really cool mountain town.  We ate breakfast outside and we had the most amazing view of the mountains.

There was this most unusual rock in town that I have to share with you.  I call it the rock head.

It was a great weekend and we are now back in Chagrin Falls/Auburn, Ohio and I can't believe how "green" it is here.  I"m just hoping when we go back to Calgary in a few weeks that there are finally leaves on the trees and the temperature during the day hits 70.  I can live with that.

P.S.  Oh yes, one more thing.  I knitted my first sweater while in Canada and I can actually wear it out in public and not be embarrassed .  I can't wait to make something else!!  Sorry its not straight but I don't know how to fix that.

Bye for now!
