A very busy visit

Now let me think.............. Friday ................. we went shopping,  met Marsha for lunch at the Legion. (They served the best clam chowder.)  Followed with more shopping.

 I bought myself a lovely cape thing in browns.   Surprise of surprises it looked good on me and after trying it on 3 times  I had to buy it.   Three times is sort of a magic number with me when it comes to buying things.  If I pick it up or try it on three times and don't buy it I am kicking myself afterwards ........ ( and that is a difficult thing to do).

My Wendy Sister french braided my hair for me which was very nice ........................ except for the actual braiding process which was a little uncomfortable because of the pulling.

Friday night we went to a party at Koren's which was fun but Janice, Wendy, Marsha and I were rather loud as we did a lot of laughing.  When we 4 left some one said there goes the fun people ...................
that's us......... the life of the party.

 I had forgotten how funny my Janice Sister is.   At the family reunion in the spring we had a dessert called "Sex in a Pan".  Janice's son, Dennis said " What is "Sex in a Pan"?  Janice replied " Very uncomfortable."   He blushed, shook his hea and said " OH
MOM" as he turned and left.

So where was I .................... Saturday  we were going to go sledding and there is frozen rain falling outside .................. I mean really ............RAIN.............. as if I don't get enough of that here at home.
Needless to say that put an end to the sledding  idea.  They even closed the Taylor Hill as it was pure ice.   So later in the day we went for a drive around Ft St John so I could see the new Hospital and some of the new housing developments.  The town is really booming,  the average age is 29 and the cost of housing is climbing.  There was one house we looked at that was $897,000,  rather unbelievable.
So now we are at Sunday.  Brother John came an picked me up to go to his house ( I posted photos of his place last year).  They made a lovely brunch .... pumpkin pancakes with special butter,  bacon, a special egg dish,  cream filled strawberries , coffee and mimosas.  Then we relaxed and digested all that wonderful meal. Later John and I, plus three miniature dachshunds went to feed the horses.   Then we went to Janice and Jim's for dinner.  Jim cooked a roast and everyone brought something for a delicious dinner. Wendy made rhubarb pie just for me ( and Mike)  mainly.   Had a lovely evening with all the family.
Monday was the day to go to Koren's to quilt.  Showed her how to use a design wall and other things to help with her quilting. Lunch was at Mr. Mikes for an early birthday celebration for me.  I ate dessert first.  The rest of them were going to have their's after the main meal but were all TOO FULL TO HAVE DESSERT.  I told them "Life is short...... eat dessert first."  Back to Koren's for more quilting and then to Wendy and Bob's for supper.  Nine am Tuesday Lorraine arrived and it was time to head home.  Went as far as Quesnel ........... rain and snow between Prince George and Quesnel.  Home by 5:00 on Wednesday.
I did take photos with my phone but can't seem to download them to my Mac.
