It is Sunday evening, December 31, 2017, and as we welcome in the New Year, we say goodbye to the old. At this time, I/Daisy would like to thank all of our customers, friends, family, market family, etc. for their support over the past year and the past almost 7 years that we have been a part of the Woodstock Farm Market.
As you may have seen in our past posts, we had planned a trip across Canada this spring and summer - the Trip 'N Daisy - Spreadin' the Love Tour. http://www.tripndaisy777.com/ However, we have had to delay the big trip until 2019 for health reasons. We do intend, as we can, to travel more of the Maritimes in 2018 and enjoy some of the places we have not yet been to as well as revisit some that we loved.
As many of you may have heard, Len/Trip has been ill. We have known he was not well for several months and have been pending a final diagnosis. He has had several biopsies and has been diagnosed with cancer. The good news is, it is treatable, curable and only in one area so should not recur. We are very optimistic that over the next year of treatments he will get well. However, it will be at least a full year of work to heal him.... PLUS the doc's believe he will not lose his beautiful bushy curly hair, so not everything is bad!
I am going to take the next few months to take care of my handsome, be his caregiver and at his side. He has been there for me through so much, it is the least I can do and I can't imagine not being by his side. To anyone who has known us long, you know we are devoted to each other and I can't imagine being anywhere but at his side. (Yes, that man has my heart ❤️)
We are currently looking for a short term 5-6 week furnished rental with a full kitchen. I can't imagine staying somewhere that I can't cook! Can you? If any of my friends - customers, etc. know of someone in the Saint John area, not too far from the main hospital who may want a house sitter as they are off escaping the frigid winter, can offer reasonable rent, etc - or has a suggestion, please feel free to message me. (we are aware of the SJ hostel but will be looking for alternate accommodation so that we can be together.)
The pictures below are of our crazy and hectic day yesterday as we attempted to get to SJ, NB. Was the world conspiring against us? You tell me! First, we slept in since the power was out! Second, after filling up with fuel in Fredericton the truck "broke down" and we had to get towed and get rental to get us on our journey! Yes, that little 2018 Dodge Charger goes FAST just in case you are wondering (Good news is - the truck is fine, I am just a maniac!)
BIG Kudos to the cancer clinic for still seeing us when we were almost 2 hours late! AND to Len's daughter for calling for me - I texted her, she called doctors, crazy day! (Note to self: need a better cell phone plan!) AND YES we laughed through the stress, it seems to be the best way to get through life's hurdles.
So, thanks for taking a minute to read our story, but since the "news is out there" I feel it is best to tell everyone the same thing. Trip ‘n Daisy are still going to Keep Trippin’ just a little different and later than originally planned.
So, please continue to support to follow us on our journey...
Thank you all once again for your support over the year and we are NOT GONE but will be back, in some capacity and please do watch Trip 'N Daisy's adventures!
From our house to yours, PEACE and Happy New Year! Sarah and Len ❤️ aka Trip 'n Daisy ✌️🌼
Trip 'N Daisy
Follow our blog as we tramp around the country in our revamped old trailer. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Trip has been to every province, territory, etc in the country. Daisy has been to all but the northern territories and provinces. Together, they have driven across Canada in 2010 with two kids and lots of breakdowns and stories! Most recently they traveled to Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia. Watch for more stories to come! Canada - we love it!
