Roughing it. Sort of...

I have returned from camping.  I somehow managed to forget the polls for my tent and my air mattress.  Good one Ginny.  Luckily someone had an extra tent and an air mattress.  Yeah yeah I rough it with an air mattress.  I don't know where my brain was when I was packing.  I'm usually really good at double checking everything before I go away.

Recently the holder for my GPS stopped working.  The suction cup won't stay so I had to MacGyver it onto my ashtray.  After that I was on my way to Plymouth.  Yes I camp in the land of the pilgrims.

I had some double sided tape so I worked it out.

I love camping.  Campfires, swimming, marsh mellows and eating.  Lots and lots of eating.  I do have some requirements while camping - a bathroom and a shower.  I'm not using nature's bathroom for a whole weekend.

Every morning I'd wake up to this view of trees from my tent.

This is a yearly event and I'm always sad when we pack up to leave because to me it signals the end of summer and I love summer.  I have no problem with fall it's just what comes after it that I hate.

I can't believe it's September!  What happened summer?  I do love Halloween though.  I already have my costume planned out.  It will involve fake blood.  YES.


  1. Summer flew by!! Also, I like your new header!

  2. It really did. I love the new header too. Kelly did an awesome job.

  3. I've seen a lot of people mentioning Halloween--too soon, too soon! It weirds me out, haha. The year is just flying by.

    I wouldn't camp without an air mattress either, haha.

  4. I didn't even get to go camping this summer. :-( Hopefully i'll still be able to do it before i go into hibernation.

  5. @Faith - I'm not buying my costume until October I swear ha ha.

    @Kayleigh - I think you have a little time left for some good camping weather.
