The Blur that is Life

We arrived home safely Tuesday the 29th after an uneventful trip home. Hubby and Izzy (dog) were so happy to see us. Friday Fred (hubby) had the day off work. So we left in the morning to go on our Labor Day camping trip with friends. Jeremiah decided to just stay home with Grandma which is good because the weather was pretty chilly which felt great after all the vacation heat we dealt with.

Several friends ended up having to cancel so it was a quiet camping weekend with the couple who hosted and it made it a very nice relaxing weekend. Saturday we did a fun kayak trip with 3 others for a total of 7. We got a late start so it ended up being an evening kayak trip and it was really fun until it became too dark but that was only the last little bit. We helped them with some yard work which was a great way to pay back being able to camp for free on their beautiful property by the river. It ended up being a very wonderful calm rejuvenating weekend just what I needed.

Now I have the typical HUGE pile of clothes since I had no time to do it after we got back from vacation and before our camping trip. We also went to Walmart today to load up on groceries because it was looking so sad in our cabinets and fridge. Life is just blurring by but at least it's full of great happy things and wonderful memories. So yeah I've only stitched two days in a month but these memories will last forever and ever. My stitching will wait for me. Hang in there stitching will be shared hopefully soon again.

Stitching on pause for a while is just fine! We all do it... Family life is much more important! Laundry...well, there had to be a down side... Ha!

Sounds like you had a great time!

Making memories is far more important than stitching! Unfortunately, laundry is part of making memories.

So nice to read that your camping event was a great one, relaxing and adventurous at the same time. You will have time enough to get back to a more restful life when winter comes, lol.
