Little A planted a tomato plant, a bell pepper plant,a jalepeno plant, and a pretty flower. The veges are quite mature with flowers and even a couple little veges!
We went to the laundry mat and did about 15 loads of laundry. I have been busy hanginy it all on the line. I am exhausted and very sweaty but the nice fresh feel is SO worth it.
In the middle of this an older couple drove up. Turns out they were the ones that planted ALL of the trees and plants! What agift to me today! They were here over an hour and we exchanged numbers. I am still on a high from all the questions they answered

First off if you are planning on traveling the Alaskan Highway at anytime ever you NEED this! I have traveled the alcan about 6 times and only once did I not have it! It is a lifesaver in more ways then one and I would never travel without it again.
It tells you where everything and I do mean everything is. One other little peice of advice is that you need to always be prepared with a filled extra gas can, plenty of food/drink and a sleeping bag. Quite a few of the places along the highway have closed down (very odd) and the ones that are open close early at night.You can be almost guaranteed that you will need one or the other. We needed ALL of the above. Yes we even did run out of gas once because we counted on a gas station to be open that wasnt.

Its about 75 degrees out and very very humid. I LOVE it. Oldest is having a panic moment tho as they put Ward county on tornado watch. For some reason it is not panicing me. Maybe it should but right next door there are about 100 old people square dancing. I figure if they aren't panicing then I am not going to. Lol.
Tomorrow we meet with our realtor to go over perspective homes. I am so excited to do that altho I really like the one we looked at yesterday. You never know tho what else might be out there.
Wonderful hubby took off with the camera but as soon as he gets back I will post some pics!

I have been out of cell service since the last time I checked in .Jers truck blew a head gasket in Craik. So he parked us at a park and took off.brand new truck too. He thinks he punctered something on the Alcan. Thank heavens Glen caught up with us.
He rented a uhaul and just picked us back up. So we will get to Minot later this evening.For now we are still in Canada.
We signed papers on the house and it is sceduled to close on the 24th of august. So hopefully it will mean we can be in our house ( whichever one that may be) by the first week in Sept.
I will check in again after the border. Its killing me not to have my email!

We just left dawson creek. We got slowed down by a bad bad accident.medi vac copters and the whole works. Not sure where we will end up tonight yet.
