Been So Busy

Rocky Mountain town of Field, in BC

I have been away and I have been busy! What a busy week it has been! Thank you for your patience & faithfulness & comments. I appreciate both.

First of all, I had a quick & fun road trip on my own this week. I took off on Tuesday morning to Calgary for a couple days to visit my sister-in-law. It was the perfect time of year to go (before the unpredictable Alberta winters start) and the roads were beautiful. My hubby wasn't able to come so I made the trip alone & thoroughly enjoyed the drive. Stopped often to take photos of course and I will post more of those in the future I'm sure.

My sis & I had a great visit and my heart left Calgary very happy for her! I stayed in a beautiful Bed & Breakfast along Calgary's Fish Creek Park and spent some nice time hiking & exploring in the park. It was truly Fall already there, lots of beautiful leaves & a great crisp Fall smell in the air!

The weekend too was very busy. Barely had time to get home before we were off on another adventure. Some visiting photographers were in town this past week and busy doing photo outings. We joined them on Saturday morning to do the historical Mascot Mine tour in Hedley, BC. I have several photos of this fantastic mine that was built into the side of a cliff about a mile above sea level. It was a great tour and we loved the history of it...but oh the stairs. 589 of them, down and back up again! The ol' calves are a little tense now! But we did it and it was a very enjoyable & full day!

Sunday too, mom & dad came up and the 4 of us drove out to the Rock Creek Fall Fair. It was great as far as country fairs go. We watched lots of barrel racing, ate great greasy fair food, saw all the exhibits & Lawrence even won me a little stuffed pony throwing darts at balloons! A fun time was had by all!

So, now its back to Monday. I have dozens of photos to process and an article to write & appointments to make. Lots filling my mind already this Monday morning but I wanted to come in & say hello and share a few quick photos so you know I haven't forgotten you or your blogs.

Have a great week!!


  1. Thanks for the comments. Sounds like you had a busy and fun week, what great pics too. We have a fair here next weekend so I am hoping to go to it with the girls. I in my 4 years of living there never did get to the rock creek fair as much as I wanted to go it just never happened. Anyway have a great week.

  2. Sounds like you had a great week! Good to see you back!

  3. So good to hear from you my friend. What an awesome time and beautiful pictures. Truly, my family needs to visit your beautiful country up there :) The mountains are so majestic!

    Off topic - I have a question about posting multiple photos. If you don't mind, I'll email you later this week if that's okay. I think I still have your email somewhere :)

  4. you sure pack a lot of living into a week Becks! Glad you're back.

  5. Well seems like you had a great time. Love the pic of the town nestled down in the mountains. And I love to stay a bed and breakfasts. It is one of my favorite things to do. I have not been blogging much. I am having family issues. My mother is in the hospital.

  6. Sounds and looks like a great time...come on over to my site...I have a surprize for you

  7. Good to hear you had a good time. Please pray for a church committe of our on Fri. Sept 21st when wwe will meet with leaders of the Full Worship AG church to discuss business details of leasing our hall to them. Pray for peace and goodwill and the Holy Spirit to prevail.

  8. Yes...I kept stopping over and was greeted by the picture of your cute goofy faces. I figured you were off somewhere...

    The mine picture is really interesting. What a precarious spot to build a mine! That's a long way down!

    I loved the fall picture, too. The air has finally cooled here--in the mornings. But one never knows about September. The heat may return for one last blast before we're into fall.

  9. Some stunning photos there. Nice blog with some food for thought.

  10. I think you are a member of paradise!
    Wonderful place.
