Camping?, and then some...

On Thursday night Sam decided that we should go camping. Seeing as it had poured rain in torrents all day I didn't relish the thought of tenting outside. I was able to convince him that bunking down on the familyroom floor would be just as exciting. We grabbed our sleeping bags and hunkered down in them and watched Wallace and Grommet. He only asked to pitch the tent once and then we moved on. Yesturday the kids had the day off school so we took off in summer weather in the morning to grab Daniel new soccer court shoes, get some groceries, grab a birthday gift, etc. We got home in early afternoon, had some lunch and then went for a wee hike with Tracey and her gang. I wasn't outside for two minutes and I was in again for my ski jacket and mittens for the kids. As we got farther down the trail, it seemed even colder, and then we watched as flurries floated down. Summer and winter all in one day...we enjoyed checking out a beaver dam from across the lake, we'll take binoculars next time, finding big sticks in the woods for even better hiking and waving as the police drove by us on their four wheelers. A friend popped out last night and we just hung out drinking the worst wine I have ever had...needless to say, when my glass was done I was finished. No more...the rest can go down the drain!

Today Daniel has soccer, then he is heading to the valley 'til Monday. Claire has a birthday party to go to at the theater, and the rest of us are just going to hang out. Nothing is open so it's a great day to get some stuff done in the garden and inside as well. I guess I'll start putting garlands up this afternoon.... Posted by Picasa
