Que pasa…..

…I always seem to have something to post about but just not enough time.

The weather has been totally unseasonal but Colin and Mission Hill Winery got lucky last Sunday evening.  Chris Botti, an American contemporary jazz trumpeter had been sold out for weeks.  If you ever come to Kelowna you really have to visit this winery, it is sensational.  Remember the Bugatti car and Nathalie Decoster sculptures last September?  You can check that event out here.

The skies cleared at the last minute for a huge outdoor event and then the rain continued till today. The cement guy is back along with the sun so lets hope it goes done finally.

I don't have her name but this singer use to sing with the Rolling Stones!

A lovely evening was had by all. The next event features Lyle Lovett.

Can you imagine sitting here on my window seat looking out at the lake? The house is coming along quickly.

Don from Deep Clean Carpet Care worked really hard to get out fungus out of the carpet....now we just keep a fan on it to dry it all up. Great guy, he only charged us $20.00!

Just checked out the cement guy….no go.  They created a problem with our slate patio and now have to figure out how to get the white off.  They have taken a 24 X 24 slab back to the shop to do some tests…..hmmmm…..good thing I held back that $5,000.00!  More house meetings this afternoon and then I am going to enjoy the sun for a bit.  Three more days of showers in the forecast.

    Hopefully you will have the “time” or make the “time” to sit on that nice window seat..glad you found the cure to gardening in the RV 🙂

    You guys need to go back to Mexico to rest. This has been quite a summer for you and it’s not even 1/3 over. Can’t imagine mushrooms in the RV. Hope they are a thing of the past.

    I wish you would send some of that rain to us! We have some terrible fires burning in the American west, Colorado being the worst, but the fires are bursting around us!

  4. Sound like a fun winery visit.
    Enjoy your sunshine while its there. You are not getting too much of it for sure.

    Rain has finally quit here in Florida. Now the temps are beginning to rise but it is summer.

    The weather all over North America is messed up. Geez!
    I’ll need to think twice before I snivel and whine about any little petty thing that comes my way.
    Sure hope you get some sunshine soon. No need for any more of that “fungus among us”, going on.

  7. Looks like they put on quite a show at the winery. Glad you had a wonderful time.

      Kevin…..I didn’t go, Colin was hired to do photography of the event.

      Bob….do you think it is global warming? If so why so much rain?

      Longdog….so glad you survived all that rain. Kids don’t mind it so much.

      George…well at least you are getting good weather.

      Marty…..I feel so bad for those folks in Colorado. We know a couple who lost their home.

      Sandie….Mexico….thinking about it is what is keeping me going….honestly. At one point yesterday I said let’s just sell the house.
