Surprise Guest

Poor Twinkle arrived in Washington while I was out for the day and had to wait on the front porch... I don't think he minded too much, he seemed to have kept himself entertained and ate all my red cherry tomatoes!

Checking out the reflection pool:

Finished eating all the ripe tomatoes:

Taking a nap in the chair:

Once I got home, I invited Twinkle inside and the first thing he did was meet Moose

Here's Moose checking Twinkle out:

Moose isn't too sure about this:

Aww... they made friends:

Twinkle wanted to visit my craft area since he heard it was soo clean, but instead found it like this:

Twinkle is turning in early tonight for his BIG day in Seattle tomorrow as he goes to work with me:

Bon Voyage

Twinkles, like Elvis, has left the building. He is on his way to Washington. He sent off a post card to Amy before he left. He packed light and didn't have time for tears. I hope he has a safe trip!

My scrappy day!

Today we had some errands to run and because Kelli has been under the weather for a couple days, we tried to get it all done at once. Kelli's mom came with us. We went to the scrapbook store and I hung out with my gnomies, they weren't every talkative but it was nice to see my own kind so far from home.
Later we helped Kelli's friend make her wedding favours. I helped curl edges of flowers, we made 60 sets of flowers, my fingers are a bit sore. We didn't get to the waterslide last weekend and are going tomorrow, regardless of weather. After that I'm headed out to my next destination. It's been great here, at first the smoke was annoying but the fire is out, just a few hot spots that need tending. I'm looking forward to my trip!

Friday's update

Thursday meant a trip to the scrapbook store in West Kelowna. Kelli bought a few Disney stamps sets, a Creating Keepsakes magazine and some Basic Grey June Bug paper. It's like being at home with Amy! We went to the Orchard Park mall, and checked out Chapters. I didn't see anything I wanted, they didn't have that new book, Hangin' With My Gnomies - My Life in a Gnome Gang. I guess I'll have to look for it in my other travels.
It finally rained in Kelowna, hopefully that puts out the forest fire that has been making the air so smokey. Tomorrow is supposed to be warm and sunny so we will plan some outings. We're supposed to go to the waterslides if it's sunny and warm on Sunday. Cross your fingers! I forgot to pack my Speedo!

Greetings from Canada!

Well, I wasn't sure I would make it safe and sound. The trip to Canada was crowded and a bit noisy. Birthday Mickey was sharing the same shipping box and he must have been nervous about the trip because he sang Happy Birthday over and over again for the first few hundred kilometers. Then he fell asleep and me and Cinderella got some peace and quiet.
When I got to Kelli's house, Linus made sure the shipping box did not contain any drugs and maybe Mickey had a few puffs of something to relax because Linus and Sally thought he was pretty suspicious, he almost lost a leg. I posed with Mickey and the rest of the goodies in the box. It was Kelli's birthday on the weekend and Amy went all out and sent her all kinds of great things. That foam finger made the trip more comfy.
And then I got to meet Linus up close and personal.

I'm not sure what the plans are today, but I'm sure it will involve me posing for more photos.
I heard we might have pesto for dinner, maybe a trip to the scrapbook store too.

Weekend Fun

This weekend was the XGames Rally. In honor of the event, Subaru held a WRX Games of their own. Here I stand in front of Travis Pastrana's Rally Car

Waiting in line for the free car wash with Max

I thought this was some sort of carnival ride, since it spun, but I was informed it was for cleaning the cars. However it did shine my shoes nicely!

Trevor offered to give me a ride in this vehicle, but I saw his driving skills earlier in the day and I opted to just inspect the vehicle rather than ride in it.
