sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

OOOh, almost camping time!

So, I flipped my calendar over this morning to make a note of something I need to remember, and guess what next weekend is? Yep, Memorial Day Weekend! And do you remember what happens on Memorial Day Weekend? We go backyard camping again! I’ll be spending a little time this coming week making final shopping lists and gathering supplies. We won’t have the financial wherewithall to get all the stuff on our wish list, of course, but we figure to get a couple of new items each month as we camp, and eventually we will have our whole kit. This month we’re getting our new tent (already on layaway) and maybe a dutch oven. The time has really slipped up on me, and I was practically sure we had at least two more weeks. In fact, I reminded dh just this morning that we needed to get the tent out “in a couple of weeks”.

I had hoped to enhance out collection of flashlights and lanterns, too but that may not be possible. Our tent actually has a power port in it (yeah, we really rough it–NOT), so we could even use golights. Those things ought to really light up a tent, don’t you think? We could even use one outside the tent to light up the yard, so we could play longer. Or read, LOL.

Because, have I mentioned that I am finally reading Harry Potter? Yes, I am. And I like it so far. I’ll be through with the first one before we camp, but I might be ready to read the second one by then.
