Is It Lunch Time Yet?

I love this time of year, all these wonderful veggies are just for the asking.  I have two tomato plants this year and they are doing terrific….for a change.  So I just had to make up this big salad with avocado, apple, cucumbers, shrimp and mixed herb greens, a little Trader Joe’s Champagne Orange Muscat Dressing.  Yum.

That was a sneaky way to show off my new vintage thrift find…..how cute it this little tray, with short legs.  Why it’s just right for on the couch, in bed OR….’drum roll please’…in my vintage trailer!

Lacking a space to take a picture, I had to set this on the floor and guess who arrived right away?  Dash, he just loves food!

And on that note, here is the other food produced on my land…..yep, the girls are laying a total of three eggs a day now.  I am thrilled.  They are still varying in size a lot….as you can see.

This one was huge….I almost feel weak in the knees for this hen!

Super Simple Sundays

I recently had some time with my grandsons.  Maxwell is growing so fast.  His hair has finally gotten curly and he loves to spout the entire alphabet!

Grayson is now five and heads off to school for the first time very shortly.  He is very ready, he counts way up into the 100’s with out any help!  And that’s no lie….even though I am his grandma K.

I Just Had to Get …

It’s been a long time coming….I have been on the road with my trailer most of the summer.  Sometimes I miss this place but most of the time…not.

Right now, I miss my sweet vintage trailer, Driving Ms. Daisy…she is getting some much needed rehab.  I hope she will be back by the first week of September, as I am to head over to Wenatchee for a Sisters on the Fly meetup.  Not having her around has really made me realize, how much I love camping and all my sisters!  I just can’t imagine not doing this!

Idaho Camping

I snuck in another camping weekend, even with an injured ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’.  Headed over near Coeur d’Alene for some fun in the sun.

I love this area and feel lucky to visit it more than once a year.  Thanks, Mig!

It is always so peaceful and I love having all that grass around our trailers.

Here is my twin, well, almost.  This Shasta 1400 is one year newer than mine, it’s a 1970.  Luckily, ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ got to go home with ‘Orange Cutie” for some restoration.  I am pleased as Mr. Orange Cutie, has agreed to work on my trailer, and he knows all about this model.  Yay!

All weekend we got to listen to Mig’s beautiful girls.  And they were very busy laying.
