July Smalls SAL

Today is the check in for the Smalls SAL. As my readers have noticed I'm extremely busy. Just got back from a 5 night camping adventure. So here is my July Year of Whimsy...
Not finished. Since I've only got 2 days worth of work into it. But I have 3 more days to finish it before the month slides away so hopefully I'll reach my deadline.

We had a fantastic time at our camping getaway. Only one complaint. It was HOT!!! We had heat warnings each day. Even though I kept drinking water I think I got really dehydrated by the time we came home. So Sunday I was not feeling well at all. I'm finally feeling better but boy it took a lot out of me. I just LOVE camping but I love fall/spring camping a lot lot more. This year we did a lot more volunteering with the organizers to help out. I really enjoyed being more involved. We also have so many new friends that we enjoyed getting to know better. There were at least 1,500 people who attended the event. I got to meet one lady who flew in from Hawaii just for this event! She took 3 planes to get there. Crazy! But so much fun to be involved. It was a geocaching event called a Mega Event. We didn't do any geocaching since we make it more of a socializing time. I'm glad it's over but so thankful for all the memories.

Okay I'm off to finish July. I'll be back hopefully soon with a finish.

  1. Your small is looking great so far. And don't worry, the link list is always open for a week after check-in day. I am totally aware that life often gets in the way. ;)

    Take care of yourself and stay hydrated!

  2. Very cute patriotic start, Katie--I'm sure you'll finished by month's end... This heat is crazy, but we're getting some much needed rain right now in western PA so I hope that cools things down a bit :)

  5. Like everyone else, I think you did great for 2 days and I have no doubt you'll finish by the 31st. Summer camping is okay IF you get cool evenings so you can sleep. When it's HOT, hydrating is harder than you think because you don't fully realise how much you need. Glad you're feeling better. Is August going to be as busy as July?
