RV Traveling Pet Walkers



OK! So most of my friends know about my Kricket Bee. She was a beautiful puppy I had to give away because of the amount of hours we work. So there was no time to train her and be with her like she deserved. Because of that I had walked on her almost killing my cat. OH my!! The decision had to be made.

A week later I have a day off from work and I'm walking to the area beach here at the Lake Siskiyou Campground and I see dog owners getting their pets out just to find out they are not allowed in the area. So the wheels in my head start turning. What if I offered a walking service to walk their pets while they hang out on the beach. And then I got to thinking, now I can get a puppy and be with him/her and train like I would loved to have to begin with. This could be a great thing. I even thought about adding a store to the fore front to cover myself when I am not out there pet walking. I am crafty and so is my husband and even more so he is.

So I have my web page up and everything in order and ready to go. Of course I do need to fine tune the page but hey that's ok. I need to get more material that is pet friendly to start my work on the cool products to offer. And I am searching drop shipping companies that cater to pet friendly products to sell. I am so excited and hope to be making a paycheck soon doing this and that we are able to offer personal service to pet owners.

California Fishing

Good-Morning Folks or After-Noon for some. Today is the start of the week. My only question is… Will it be a good week? I sure hope. We could use it. Because just a couple of days ago (Saturday) we worked a ½ day so not to go over in hours and we planned on going fishing. So off to town we went and got our fishing license at $13.00 each and off we went. We went across the Lake Siskiyou just to get a break from our area and it was a major no-go. So we decided to head up to Gumbo Lake (not sure if I spelled that right) and went up 8 miles when the car decided to stall and break down. ERRRRRR I was mad. And then the bad weather starting coming in. So we walked back to our area and decided to cut through the woods not sure if we would end up any closer. We did and that was the only part of the day that was nice. We decided when we got back, to fish anyways even in the rain – for $26.00 would of gone to waste. Well it was wasted anyways. With the rain and the wind and the dropping of temp (uggg in the very low 50’s) we couldn’t bare it. So what we do is head to the restaurant here at the resort and ate there. Wow of course the food is wonderful. Renee the cook (and we laugh because every time we head there she is always the one cooking – and we never plan it that way which makes it funny) served us fish for Jorge (lol) and I had tri tips – yummy and a bowl of clam chowder.

Sunday we busted butts like no other. There was Jessica, Park, Jorge and myself working a full day and like dogs too. There were 23 checkouts and 4 turnovers. Ugggg and we still didn’t finish. Enough units were done where I don’t have to work today. We try to save the hours for the end of the week and not for the beginning of the week seeing I’m only part time. So Today I re-did the cleaning checklist for the old SUCKED bad and was out dated. The new one should make things easier but we’ll see.

And then I need to put in my time for volunteer work with MS. I’m still emailing patients to see if we can do anything for them in the form of crafting that is. I made a blanket for the very first member who joined our group. What’s really cool about this patient is that they signed up to help and I was choked up bad – because the day of sign up was 3 weeks to the day that my brother passed on and left us. It renewed my anger, which is always welcomed and gives me motivation to continue in his name.

Yippee, payday is this Friday for us and I really need to get a camera and may have to get a new printer for the new one we just bought on the last payday is no longer working and has only been used twice. I’m a bit peeved about that.

Well, I guess that will have to hold our viewers until the next time I am able to blog. Hoping everyone who reads this is happy and healthy. Please remember to do something nice for someone you know and a stranger. That’s 2 somethings….

HelpingStepByStep this KID is changing the world starting with his back yard!!

This is copied from his site and I support David Ashby who is just 14 years old, 100%. His Mum is amazing to having taught value that goes beyond the Church!!

HelpingStepByStep was founded to raise awareness of the growing problem of homelessness, here in the United States. Its main focus is centered around helping the estimated 1.35 million children who live on our streets every day, with its numbers growing at a staggering rate. Despite the wealth that our country has we are faced with an economic downturn that is affecting those most vulnerable and unable to help themselves, children.

HelpingStepByStep founder David Ashby, will be embarking on a 1100 mile trek on foot from Orlando, Florida to Washington DC.. Taking approximately two months to complete. Scheduled to start in June of 2009, David will be making stops along the way at the local homeless shelters, to meet with the children residing there. His goal is to talk with these children and give them a voice, by sharing their experiences, thoughts and fears with the world. His memoir of these events written as they unfold will be shared via the website and also in print.

To truly get a hands on experience of what it is to be homeless, he will be living as though he were. By staying in shelters, sleeping on the streets, and begging for his next meal. You cannot fully appreciate their plight until you have walked a mile in their shoes.

HelpingStepByStep hopes to make a change in the lives of these children. Giving them a voice and most of all, hope, that they have not been forgotten.

Please join us in this effort. One person can truly make a difference, but a group of people can change the world. YES WE CAN!

If you are parent or have grandchildren please set forth this example and support these wonderful kids when they come up with solutions to help our world....

Home today

Oh my - I need to clean like a mad women today. Stephanie and John may be coming to stay at Lake Siskiyou and I need to get things ready for a visit. I sure hope they stay. They may however head up to Ashland to our other GREAT friends campground. Regardless I'll get to see both of them either way - YIPEE...

I was just looking at the calendar and can't believe it's the 15th already. It's still cold and it's still raining. Please Mother Nature bring on some happy weather (lol my kind of happy weather that is).

I am home today and I have already put in 2 hours of work into my new group doing my research and getting all my emails out and inplanting more resource numbers in our groups database. I couldn't sleep any longer due to the nightmares I was having. 3 cups of coffee later and those dreams are in the past. After cleaning this morning - and IF the weather warms up, I plan to sit outside and do some more of my blankets.

I do plan on blogging later so I shall see you later. Wish you all a happy and healthy day!!

June 12, 2009 Will it Rain???

Good-Morning All.... It's Saturday and I'm trying to pass the time before I have to leave to head to Weed, CA... I am going to set up a table that I only paid $10 for and hope to sell my items. These are items that I had on eBay and I need to get rid of them before making new items.
I'm heading off by myself and I'm hoping to see a face I may know (hint hint Linda and Ray)... We'll see. I'm not prepared at all so my table is going to look boring for the most part. So I'll have a week till the next sale to get my act together.

Last night I watched a new TV program called Mental. At first I thought ummmm not liking it because it's been done before. But I managed to get through it and found it sort of interesting. Friday nights is just not good TV nights. Normally we'd head for a walk or something but with all the rain we've been having that was a major no go. But we did get a new gazebo and Jorge did manage to get that up so now I can hang out side and serve my dinners out there. We even manage to grill our dinner last night. A good rib eye steaks and yummy - lol...

Not a whole lot to tell seeing it's still the start of the day. I hope to blog again tonight. I so wish I could add pictures but my camera has died and I'm hoping to get a new one on the next pay day trip. I hope all of you are well and that you know I am thinking of you and wishing you well.

My fight is still STRONG...


So today I am home for 2 reasons. One I need to get ready to sell my items in Weed, CA tomorrow. I will be set up at their mall from 10am to 5pm. And more important I am home working on my networks to help MS Patients. My group is growing slowly but that's fine - I want people to use this group as a help forum and a volunteer forum and we'll always be there for them.

Today is cold here in Mount Shasta and of course it's cloudy and rain is not far behind it. Ugggg it's like the 3rd or 4th day of this.

Looking forward heading to Ashland, OR next week for personal reasons which I can't say anything about until we get back. But pray for us...

I was watching the morning news this morning on my most favorite news program "The Today Show" and I was deeply sadden by the article about the teen girls who beat the day lights out of what use to be their friend over a boy and even cut her hair. I'm shocked yet again and it seems that this world is full of this behavior. I know TV has a lot to do with it but it's the lack of presence in the Church that is also the cause of this. People get back to the house of the Lord. Love thy neighbor and treat people as you would want to be treated. Time on this earth is so short and life with our heavenly father is eternal why would you ruin that one and only chance.

The picture is a sample of the blankets I will be volunteering to make for MS patients. Of course the patient will have the choice of colors but each one will be made in honor of my brother.

On that note I will close for I am having a moment and need to cry... Oh how I miss you Pea....

June 10, 2009

Today is gloomy and of course it would be on our day off - in fact it will be this way again tomorrow as well. I have a new fishing pole and all the gear (except the fishing vest which I will own one by the end of the season) and can't even use any of it because every time our day off comes it flipping rains. So now we'll be working on the store getting more inventory put in.

As many of you know I've been putting a lot of my effort into my new group (that I've neglected cleaning my home) and it's slowly getting more organized. I was contacted by my first donation by email so in the next couple of days I will have my first set of yarns by donation and can start working on my 3rd blanket. I have my first 2 ready and they just need to be whipped stitched and then we'll be able to mail off to our very 1st MS patient.

Work is going so so and that's all I can say on that....

Jorge and I are very excited about getting to see some of our dear friends within the next week. Stephanie and her husband John will be floating up here to Mount Shasta and I am so excited she'll be teaching me how to spin and then I hope to have time to pick her brain on how to knitt (I only know one stitch) and maybe learn a thing or two more about crocheting. And then next week while we are in Ashland on a VERY, VERY important meeting we'll be visiting Gwen and Dale before they hit the Blue Younder.

It's been 10 days now that my brother has joined our heavenly father and the pain is still raw. But I remain vigil on my quest to help others who has MS. It has opened my eyes even wider. Again we all know what the pink ribbon is for and I thought I'd test the grounds and ask what color is MS ribbon to the people of this area and not one person answered it correctly so there you have it. I was the same way. I think when we are at our most healthiest we don't think until it comes knocking on our door or take the ones we love. But as I am learning it's never to late to help. Doesn't matter where your help goes but we must help it's our human duties.

We continue to check out Craigslist and eBay for our next rv only this time it will be a travel trailer. Because of the red flag we are under with our working situtation we have decided to hold off unless we see something that is just to good to pass up. We'll see....

I want to wish everyone a happy day - remember to do you one good deed for someone. And to smile at someone who's not expecting it and remember you have a life time friend right here wish you all the best. Make a call to someone you have spoken to in a long while.... Reconnect!

I am now in Fighting Progress to help man kind. I beg of you to do some fighting too!!

I've been in tears on and off ever since I got the news about my dear PEA. I am hurting and I am angry. I'm not mad at God for it was God who took my brother from earthly pain and I am most grateful for that.

I have gone to the store today with a mission.... And I bought over 50 skeins of yarn and much more in materials to start work on my volunteer work. I was on the web doing reseach for volunteer crafting for MS and didn't find a thing. I did however find this site:

And these women are the most caring and loving folks next to my friends of the campground_crafters in fact they are so much alike it's a blessing - A TRUE BLESSING.

I have to take a moment and thank Sue and Candy and Gwen who have been sending me emails to see how I am doing. The emails are so special to me that I cried and wish them many thanks and know that with friends like that I can make it.

I'm asking those that know me to please check this site out and join and be apart of the growing love there is on this site to help. My idea of man kind has changed so much in the last 24 hours. I'm begging for you to take just an hour of your time, a day, a week, a month or even a year to help people that need your help. Donate blood, donate your time, donate your talent, say a prayer, visit the sick, write a check, clip coupons, donate BOX TOPS or CAMPBELLS SOUPS points. ANYTHING you can do. Don't wait and don't question just do.

If you are a crafter and a RVer or even own an RV - this group is a group I could not live without. They are the campground_crafters be sure to check them out - not only will they guide you thru crafting but they will become your life time friends....
