From the time that they hopped into their camper way out there in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia and pressed the pedal to the metal, they were roaring East at an incredible clip. I got dizzy just thinking about where Judy and her husband Elmer would turn up next. You'll be able to read all about it at Judy's and see some of the sights that they have seen. And, just as soon as they have their harvest in the can, they'll be back traveling again. They love to travel so My Front Porch is a blog to keep your eye on for sure.
You may also know that Judy is one of the Mennonite Girls [Who] Can Cook. What a wonderful team of women whom God has brought together in a special way. I wish to thank each and every one of them for signing my copy of Celebrations. More about that in a moment.
So it was with great anticipation and some nerves that I prepared for their coming to our humble corner of the country and our humble town and our humble breakfast haunt and our humble home. John even went overboard and showed off his humble garage, which is a proper fright. I have a feeling that we'll laugh about that one forever!
< insert *thud* > That picture of Elmer is the only one I took of him. I am really slipping.
Judy brought me this gorgeous print of Mt. Cheam, which is "her" mountain, the one she sees from her home every day. It was painted by a local artist and a good friend. What Judy may not know (because I don't remember ever telling her) is that I was first attracted to her blog (back in 2007) by the beautiful scenes of British Columbia. My aunt attended nursing school in Vancouver; she was also an artist and her paintings of BC hung on the walls of my grandparents' home. In the past few years, I packed up the last of her paintings and returned them to their rightful owners...her granddaughters. So this print is like a God whisper to me and I am looking for a proper frame!
Don't grandmothers think of everything? Even gifts for another's grands? As it so happens, my own grandchildren are returning from a vacation in New Brunswick today so I'll be able to give them their candy. Those chocolate covered blueberries were amazing. Right. Past tense. I loved my Winks bag, which was a mistake, but a happy one for me since Judy often talks about her shopping trips to Winks.
Thanks for reading my part in the story. Have a beautiful week...
