The Joys of Camping


We're back. What a lovely five days spent fishing and knitting and reading and watching the stars. Oh the stars! One forgets how bright they shine. We also introduced the kids to one of my alma maters (Go Cougs!) and puttered around on horseback. And we drove and drove and drove admiring the farms of Eastern Oregon.

What I wouldn't give for a little homestead, with a red barn, a lovely red barn, tucked up against the Eagle Cap Wilderness. We'd have chickens, of course, and some goats. Perhaps a horse or two. Oh how glorious that'd be.

But for now we are home. We've two weeks until school starts though water polo has already begun. There's shopping to do. Clothes and supplies to buy. Appointments to keep and general business ahead. Thank goodness for these brief respites from our busy lives!

I've processed some photos of our trip with more to come. But first sleep. Sweet sleep in my very own bed.

Good night and sleep tight!
