**PLEASE, I need Scrapbooking Supplies!

As most of you are now aware, i quickly had to leave my house in SK in an incredible rush as I rec'd a call at 11 p.m. that my dad was being airlifted from one hospital to another....  I managed to grab a couple of outfits for me and my girls, have gotten a couple more here as well as some toys and coloring for them.

**I need Scrapbooking SUPPLIES ****

I have my laptop and am able to now work from the farm as i borrowed my sisters aircard... here, is my request.   I need scrapbooking supplies - cutter, scissors, healing mat, paper, product (especially Kiki Art, Urban Lily)!!    I am here for a long time, and need some scrapbooking to keep me busy & take my mind off running overtime.   I travel to Calgary (Lougheed Hospital) everyday with my girls and can try to meet up with you.   I can either return the product, or i will take it home with me (have no idea how long i will be here.. but we are hunkering down for the summer at least) and then donate it to Children's Hospital - I would love to pay you back with product (I have a ton at home...).

Update on my dad - he was removed from ICU tonight and now is on a different floor and is still in isolation unit as bad Pneumonia.   He is still weak, hard to get up and stand or sitting position.  His stats are looking good, but he is strugling lots with breathing and normal activities like getting in pulled up position.  We are taking it day by day and hope that his incredible strength prevails again.   Thank you to all those that have been there for me and my girls supporting us, offering positive thoughts & words of encouragement.  ...as for me - well I am moment by moment, it's incredibly hard watching someone I love (again) go through all this pain, I am glad I have my girls with me as i find I cry less when they are around.  (the last time dad was admitted was a long 6.5 weeks w/o seeing my girls..)

I have been stalking the animals for this shot!!!

It's been about 3 years since we had over 48 Moose on one Quarter Section (160 acres) - 17 bull moose -  on our Canola field during the winter months.   Satellite imaging showed that this was the highest amount of moose in one area in SK - was starting to be called the moose capital of Saskatchewan - accoring to DNR  (Dept. of Natural Resources - wildlife).

We used to have a Cow and her calf that lived just beside the house, i would get Christina walking to the bus, as the Cow and her calf went the opposite way.   The bus would come and do tours.  At night we were on the watch for poachers as it was an open target.   The moose came to the "Shewchuck corner" because that year we voluntary canola came up on the quarter, and apparently they loved the 'cabbage type' leaves.

Since then we have been having a Cow and her twins - yes twins, every year.  We see them all the time and I never get a picture.   While we were roasting weiners during quad trip July 6th - off in the distance was "my shot", now i only have my Sony Cyber Shot  (DSC-H3) 8.1 mp and was able to get this shot...

Aren't they cute, I always see the calf when it's a year old and "gangly" looking - so happy to see the calves!!
Now my next shot will be a close-up - stay tuned!

Would love to hear from you - share some love!
