Why Do Baby's Always Smell So Good?

Last day to hug bebe. Back on the road homeward bound tomorrow. Bitter sweet really. I haven't lived here in 25 years, but it still feels like coming home.

AND I only saw one coyote and a handfull of mountain goats.

Mid-point In Holidays

I'm at the point in my stay where I want to be split down the middle. Half of me stays visitng and half of me begins the trek home to reality, husband, and comfy bed. I have until Wednesday morning to decide which half wins. Otherwise the relaxed side wins and stays until Friday morning.

The problem with chillaxin' is that one can get far to used to it.

Jasper House (Circa 1850`s)

We just got back from a hike that took us to a historical spot tourists don't visit. It was a wonderful day, and if I can figure out how to get my pictures out of my phone and into my camera ..... you'll see just how wonderful it was.

On a flip side - I'm missing my soft comfy bed. Short of sleeping on the bathroom floor, my ancient futon guest bed leaves me a lot to be desired.

There is nothing like being with people who get your humour.

Time Warping A Generation

Time slips through your fingers when you're not looking.

I did a solo road trip across the province yesterday. I hoped a ferry at 8am, and pulled into the Rockies by 6pm. Listened to an audio book, but it was only 3 hours, so it didn't really fill in the time. Put in a second audio book and voila! I'm here.

I'm in Jasper, Alberta. High in the Canadian Rockies and home away from home for me. Last night I met my 6 week old "great" niece Lucy, and as I assumed she would be - she's beautiful!! I'm looking forward to getting to know her better over the next couple of days.

I left the husband, cats, and house behind - I only hope they can manager without me.

Home Work

I'm on holidays, but it feels more like sick days. However, I did manage to mop the floors, get things ready for good-will. Sweating it all out whether I want to or not.

Thursday is Jasper or bust!

14 Days of Snot and ....

Day 14 of a stupid spring cold / cough / laryngitis. Although the laryngitis only kicked in (or out as it were) a week ago. And you wonder why I've been so silent.

One Is All It Takes

Note to Self:
It is better to write one sentence once a day, than nothing for almost a month.
