We’re going camping this weekend! The truck isn’t set up for the camper yet, which is just fine cause we have a big, beautiful tent that we can stand up in with room for our double-height air mattress and the playpen (I think).
We also have a screened gazebo for bug-free cooking and eating, and a folding table and folding kitchen (sans sink). We coerced some friends to look after the animals and the garden for us so we could take off.
I just finished making a delicious potato salad. I got the recipe from Quality Greens after I tasted a sample. It ha garlic scapes in it. I don’t know what they are, but they smell like garlic.
We’re going camping on some private land with a few of the young adults from our church. There’s a meadow and a beaver pond, so I’m told. But no outhouse, so I will take it upon myself to rig one up.
We took Sadie camping once last year when she was just 2 or 3 months old. She slept outside in her portable bassinet all day, only waking up to eat. Kinda nice (except we were camped in a subdivision and the neighbours ran their generator all day, so doubt to keep the air conditioning on in their RV). This trip will most likely be quite a bit different. Maybe she’ll get tired of crawling around in the dirt and start walking.
I’m definitely a make-your-own-camp-in-the-bush person. I also like the camp-by-the-lake-with-the-outhouses-as-long-as-there’s-no-one-else-there. I’m not a camp-in-the-provincial-campground-with-paved-roads-and-showers-and-flushing-toilets-and-rv’s-with-satellite-dishes. I’d rather park the camper on the side of a dirt road somewhere. But the tent is roomier.
I will tell you all about it when we get back.
Have a great weekend!
PS. I got that chair for $2 at the thrift store! I’m looking for sparkley red vinyl to recover it. There’s none in this town!
