Whoever coined the term "summertime and the living is easy" is full of shite, no?
I've been busier than a one-armed paper-hanger.
No, I've been busier than a two-headed rooster in a hen house, and I'm not saying which head the old boy has two of!
So please, take my apologies for not being around lately and in advance for not being around in the coming week. We're headed out for another week of internet-free camping – this time in Grundy Lake Provincial Park, which is between Parry Sound and Sudbury. My mom says I was there when I was young but I don't remember it, so this will be a bit of an adventure with all sorts of new places to explore. We've packed the canoe, our bicycles and running shoes to make sure all parts of adventures will be properly investigated. (Note to thieves - the house is being house-sat by large dogs with big teeth and small people with big guns so buzz off ... or was that large people with big teeth? ... another senior's moment)
A bit of sadness yesterday - Sam said he was homesick (for his father's house) and didn't want to come camping with us. Angus already said he didn't want to go. So it's just me and Dave. Deep down inside there's a little part of me that's jumping up and down and hollering "no kids! no kids! no responsibilities" but honestly I'm heartsick. Well, I was heartsick yesterday. Today the sky is blue and we have a whole new adventure to look forward to and I plan on enjoying every minute! Enough worrying about stuff I don't have any control over! Enjoy the moment, live in the moment, appreciate all the good things or they'll pass us by.
Speaking of good things, I had a quick moment to see that JoJo is ENGAGED!!! SQUEEEE! I am so happy for you, JoJo, I really am! I hope you're as happy as me and Dave are and that's pretty darned happy! By the way, love your ring – gorgeous!
Well, it's time to finish packing and hit the road. I hope you have a fabulous week and I'll see you on the flip side – sunburnt, bug-bit and happy as that two-headed rooster.
Oh, and yes, I shall be avoiding the hammock.
