This morning we had to wake up early to load up the car with my daughter’s stuff for camp. Included her 24 pkg of water bottles, her sleeping bag, pillow, suit case, etc. It seemed to come so fast, but that’s probably because of how late I registered her! She knew a few of the girls right away when she got there, so she’ll be fine. It’s about an hour drive from our house, not counting Starbucks- 😂 lol (priorities! It was 8:30 on a Sunday morning!!) The drive was safe and uneventful, we got her there on time. Carried her things with her into her cabin helped her get semi-settled. Then we walked her back to the lodge, said goodbye and left her. Bye bye little one, Momma loves you!! I didn’t say that in front of her friends, of course…that would have been way uncool!! Lol If my hubby had been there, he wouldn’t have hesitated to embarrass her! Anyway, after dropping her off we drove by “the cabin”. (We have friends who have a cabin right on a double lot, lakefront. They had a second double lotbacking onto their first lot. Got years they let us go out there and use it whenever we wanted. We took them up in it very often, it was beginning to feel like ours. However, the owners are getting up there in age and, although they weren’t yet sure, their adult children convinced them to sell! We all really miss it. We have many good memories out there!) My son wanted to see it. Do, I drove past it and no one was there. It looks just as I remember it…sigh. How sad. We were spoiled with the anytime use of a free cabin. Now we miss the place so much!! We should’ve looked into buying it from them. But, it’s too late now. ☹️ Looking at it even made my son sad. He remembers it from a couple of years ago.
On our wAy home, we drove through Leduc and we popped into the Leduc Walmart. I found some watercolour paintbrushes and a travel pack of watercolour paints that the supply list claims isn’t that bad a set. I also bought a sketch/notebook. I’m working on some of my supplies for my watercolour course, obviously. I’m, of course, going to hit up a real art store for a few things, but I probably already have the majority of what I’ll need. I know it’s three weeks away, but I’m getting super excited and nervous!! I hope that I’m able to do whatever she instructs us to do. I also hope that I can remember past things we have learned. Then I don’t feel quite so much like an untalented newbie!! Either way, I’m also super excited to be going there on a train!!! Wow! I have always wanted to take a train through the mountains! I mean always!! It’s what I wanted to do for as long back as I remember! I told my hubby that’s what I wanted to do for our honeymoon, but we ended up doing nothing. I’m feeling a bit guilty for being excited that I get a few nights to myself, kid free!! I haven’t had that in some time and I feel ready for a break!! The train has plug ins to charge things and free wifi! It has food and I’m so so ecstatic! I’m trying not to act overexcited, because my kids are upset that I’m leaving prior to them and that I won’t be in the car for the drive there. They will be fine and we all know u could really use a break from the kids – everyone but the kids know it and believe it, I think…
After the Leduc Walmart, we went airport and picked my oldest daughter. Then we drove to Chapters at Southpoint for a book she’d been looking for for a while now. We saw online that they had it there, so we went there. After the bookstore, we came home. I folded laundry while we watched our show. We’re getting close to the end of the whole series!! Then we’re going to need a new show to watch!! Suggestions anyone!!
Well, I’m off! I’m feeling pretty tired and it’s awfully late. My eyes are closing and wanting to stay that way…so I’m going to let them do as they wish!! Night All! 💤😴
