Oh my goodness ...

it's been way too long since I posted. 

It has been HOT here and very uncomfortable.  Hot here is in the 90's, anywhere from 90 to 99 and over is HOT, HOT, HOT!

I've done absolutely nothing on the hugel garden - even in the early mornings it's too warm to start shoveling dirt.  I just look at it and wonder when I'm going to get to finish it ...

We, our group, went camping last weekend and had a blast!!  Ron and I went up on Wed morning, set up and relaxed in the shade ... it was hot.  Dale brought up the 5th wheel later on and Candy and the youngest grandchild, Ben, stayed.  Dale had to work on Thursday so he had to wait a day.  It was his birthday weekend, so we handed out presents.  It was still hot.

Fishing was terrible the whole weekend, so we only had one meal with fish and really nothing to bring home to freeze and enjoy during the winter ... LOL ... if they last that long!

Dale's parents came up on Saturday and spent the afternoon and evening with us.  Mom brought Ice Cream and Cake - we were styling it ... The one grand kid and the great grand kid talked Dad into doing some fishing.  He's in his 70's, not in the best health, but hasn't fished in at least 20 years.  He sat on the dock in a good chair and caught a 13" Catfish!  The biggest all weekend!  We b-b-q'd steaks with pasta salad and cake & ice cream.  We eat better when we are camping ... LOL.  Mom & Dad stayed until just before they closed the gate at the campground - 9 pm.  It was a wonderful day, full of fun and laughter.  Dale cleaned the cat and dropped it at his parents on Monday - a meal for the two of them.

I still haven't dumped the camper - it's too hot!  Everything else is out of it ...

We are trying to figure out when the next camping trip will be ... we only have one more due to money before Deer Camp.  That starts, I think, on Sept 28 and runs for 12 days.  Ron and I will go up the Tuesday before so we can get the sites we want ... two together.  It is getting earlier every year because people are discovering that the campground is open for hunting season.  I go up for maybe a week, but the guys stay for most of it.  If they get a deer early then the rest of the time is "party time".

Any way, back to the next trip - I'm not sure we want to go over Labor Day, but the 24th of Aug is out - a family thing ... LOL.  The weekend before is too close, and the weekend after is Labor Day ... so I think we will go Labor Day no matter what ... time will tell.

I will try to not go so long before the next post - I was doing well for a while, twice a week, but then the weather got HOT and I did nothing ... I sure hope these temperatures drop down to the low 80's soon - that's normal for us!

Hope you all stay cool and safe

ps: I still haven't figured out the camera "error message" to get pictures up loaded ...
