Just a quickie!

Just a quck note this morning to say hi to all in blogland! I discovered a new blog which caught my eye due to a cactus post he made, but discovered he loves books and reading, and he has also posted about some reading challenges (you have to visit his links to find out specifics on them)...but they sound so interesting! Do I have time to read much??? I don't know. He also has a link to a knitting (or other handicraft) challenge on his blog. I just thought I would tell you about him...he is in UK...Rambles From My Chair.

Work is so busy I am about to lose my mind. It is usually temporary, and should calm back down in a week or two. I pray. LOL.

Not much new to tell or show around here. Am looking at possibly getting out of town for the weekend for an adventure. A nice nature trek sounds good. Either that, or I am seriously thinking of setting up my tent in the backyard and camping out with my firepit, dog, books and laptop, of course. I think it would be a nice way to relax, and it is supposed to be a bit cooler too, so that would make it very enjoyable! I have about 5 Coleman lanterns, lots of firewood, and I could take pictures of it all and post on Sunday night! I like having my own bathrooms at hand for showers and toilets!!! (OK...I know, I am a camping diva).

Just a bit of silly fun...but the thoughts of those campfire hotdogs and baked beans is calling my name! I may invite a friend down who also has a tent.

Crazy???...yes....Fun?...YES!
See ya'll later...

Mz Julie, it sounds like you need to slow down and do a nature get away. Sometimes life gets tedious. Good to hear from you.

Camping in backyard reminds me of John & Kate Plus 8 and she (Kate) highly recommended it because it is fun yet you hve the conveniences of home. Can you just imagine what would be going through Doozey's mind as you settle in to sleep outside? She's probably be scratching at the door to get back in the house! LOL.

You gotta check out my post today starring my Dad;s hands. It's very cool. Vickie

I wish I had a tent because I may well have joined you.....at least you know the camping facilities will be up to par. What FUN! It sounds like just the thing you need to de-stress from all the craziness at work.

Have a great weekend!

I haven't camped in the backyard since I was a kid...

of course, I was only out there because mom wouldn't let me in the house...
