We drove out the valley and along the way I noticed more SNOW than we deal with and tons of rain creating huge puddle the size of small lakes. There are huge mountain east of Chilliwack so it makes sense that they would have more rain...but I wasn't expecting flooding like that when there was not any water/flood warnings on TV etc.
After touring and ruling out several one and two storey rancher subdivisions, we set off to see what was new at Garrison Crossing. This is the old army base in Chilliwack and they have redeveloped it into a pretty little community.
It was fun to see the original barracks and houses that were remodeled from top to bottom with totally new floor plans, porches, rooflines etc. There were homes for every price range. We would be downsizing a bit, but many seemed just too small. We quite liked one house (well most of it), but were struck with the reality of just how far we would be from friends and family.
We set off home, happy to realize that those friends and family meant more to us than the $200,000. we would add to our retirement fund if we moved out there! All in all, it was a nice outing.
I have another card to share. Not sure yet who it will be for...if not one of my friends maybe one of my daughters friends. It is amazing how often my cards get flipped through and culled by those girls! teehee
I think I used the wrong ink as there is a sort of haze around the cupcakes...or maybe it is from the glue pen that I used before I glittered the heck out of those little morsels! With my diet, this is as close to cupcakes as I am going to get. I have grown to like the haze...that's my story and I am sticking to it!
I love to read any comments so would love to hear what you think!
I don't know what that little dark spot is on the bottom of the phrase...I swear it is not there IRL. Here's a close up of the phrase..oh, I figured it out! It's a shadow...Thank Goodness!
