A totally fun and relaxing day

We took the Wildwood (travel trailer) out to Joe Pool lake for a couple of nights along with our regular camping buddies. The last few weeks have been so stressful and packed with activity that I really just wanted to do nothing. So, that's pretty much what I did -- nothing. The entertainment for the night was the guys (not the teenage guys, but the grown-up guys) "experimenting" with the fire. We had a hollow log that they sat straight up and stuffed different things inside. Oh, I could go on about that...

In our culture we are all about doing. We gotta do this, we gotta take care of that... This time of year we shop and shop, wrap and wrap, go and go... it's a frenzy. Sometimes we just need to stop. Last night was cold, but not too cold. It had been cloudy earlier in the day but around 10:00 pm the sky cleared up. The moon was not quite full, but it was really bright. It lit up the ground around the campsite. The fire crackeled and it was really hot -- it had been burning just about all day. We sat and enjoyed the stillness, the quiet...except for the sound of two boys in the trailer trying to get the dog to howl. Perfect...

It was fun time. All that was missing was my daughter who decided to go to her cousin's house instead of with us. And, Johnny and I rocked at bochie ball so that was icing on the cake!!

Rested and refreshed,

Jeanette
