Milestone week

It looks and feels like summer is back, blue skies and getting warm already. I hope I remember the fan system, we have had a nice long break from them. Even I am ready for some sunny weather as long as it doesn't get crazy hot again.

August is our milestone month, Hannah just turned 17 yesterday. She was home from camp for a few hours and we enjoyed having her with us. Amanda's 23rd birthday is on Monday, we will have a family party for both on the weekend when Gerry is here. I think the girls want cheese cake, so I will be on my way to Superstore since I do not bake in the summer. Gee how convenient is that with all of our birthdays in the summer? Well I did bake back in the day, such a sacrifice for those birthday parties I did when the girls were little. Anyway, I am not baking this time.

The scariest milestone? One month to Laura and Dave's wedding. YIKES!!! We have been avoiding that whole countdown thing, but now we can't any longer. Even without proper math skills, I know it is a month today. We are fairly organized, it is all those little things, programs, music and such that need attended to. And of course people wait until the very last minute to RSVP, so far it is a nice small wedding of about 40, great, maybe we will fancy up the food menu if this is the trend! Or we could just call in for Chinese, that sounds good to me.

How do you like my new topper on this page. You are probably thinking, boy that Terri sure learns quick....ah no. I have my blog consultant... Amanda helping me, and helping me and more of the same. Over the phone she is kind and patient, but I think I need some hands on learning. She took some pictures of some of my things and went home and put them on from her computer! Thanks Amanda it looks great. The cute salt and pepper shakers that Laura got me, kind of look like our dog, if she were really a miniature schnauzer, rather then looking like a smelly woolly sheep. The quilt is on my wall right now, it is the one where I went to Kelowna for a block per month, I even quilted this one myself.

So this week, more wedding stuff. I am to call the flower shop to see what the cost is, I am scared. Take a look at what the church has for decorations. And hopefully that last row of squares done for the wedding quilt, then on to the borders. I also hope to paint the garage doors and will see if I can post pictures of that next time. Maybe all by myself? Will see.

In the mean time, enjoy the rest of what summer has to offer. I am still hoping to go on the boat once this summer! Maybe even my first dip in the lake to boot! Until next time, my love to all of you~Ter


  1. I love blogs! -- it's such a great way to feel close to family! Thanks for sharing auntie terri! (I promise we will RSVP soon)

  2. Momma, you always made our birthdays so super special- every cake was well appreciated.

    Every once in a while an old friend would remember one of the themes, teddy bear picnic, Victorian tea party or some of the crafts we made. Honestly, not to be sappy or anything- summers and especially b-day parties are some of my grandest memories of my childhood.

    Someday we will throw wonderful parties for my babies! So thanks- you are the best ever!

  3. Oh, one more thing- you are REALLY good at this blogging thing!
