Weekend Recovery

We camped this weekend. The weather was less than stellar, it rained on Friday night all evening, but we sat around the campfire anyhow. It was cold half the day on Saturday, Bug Mr. Ink and Miss Bug swam in the river anyhow, and it rained overnight Saturday night into Sunday morning as well. Nevertheless, we had a great time! It was fun to be hanging out with friends, eating camp food, and leaving our cares in the city.

Miss Bug was the only child there. She was hanging out with adults all weekend, poor kid. But, she was exceedingly good, to the point where one might forget she’s still a kid. On Saturday evening we had additional visitors, people not camping but coming in to hang out with us. Miss Bug decided that it was her job to treat everyone to S’mores so she made them for anyone who asked. To be honest, she’d been eating marshmallows since 8 in the morning so I think she wanted to make them but was sick of eating them.


Here she is making s’mores for the group, one marshmallow at a time.

Before we left, I had put some flower shop inferno on the wheel in addition to the spindles. I really wanted to finish up the project.


I finished this bobbin full, and decided to take the small remainder on spindles with me on the camping trip. But, we were waiting for Mr. Ink to get himself around and packed, and I kept spinning. Then I realized that was silly. I could start plying instead, and save the spindle spinning for the trip. So that’s what I did.


It was great fun to come home from the trip and realize that not only had I finished the spinning portion of the project, but that I had a head start on the plying as well!

Upon our return to reality on Sunday, we had an extremely busy day. We put away gear, cleaned up, did dishes, did loads and loads of laundry, mowed the lawn, pulled weeds, and then I started scraping paint on the outside of the house. I was exhausted, but just kept moving. So on Monday, I got home from work at 4:30, and had two school meetings at 6. Fell in bed for a nap and didn’t wake up until Mr. Ink came home and woke me up at 5:50. Not much time before those meetings!!! I went to bed early again last evening, and feel much refreshed this morning.

Hopefully that means I’ll have more things to post about soon.
