Andy has another week of vacation coming up. In fact, it starts tonight when he gets home! And we're going camping! I really do love to camp but this year we're giving it a new twist. We're camping from the cottage! We're going to put up rope lights around the screen porch, make s'mores on the stove and use our candlelit fireplace for a campfire! We might even bring in the camp chairs to put in front of that campfire!

And during the day, we'll go canoeing and fishing, maybe bicycling, walk around the neighborhood....oops, I mean campground. But at night, we get to sleep in our real beds! And we can keep our food in a real refrigerator instead of a cooler! And when its hot and sticky, we can turn on the air! Maybe read a book by electric light! Plus we have private showers! Charlie will be a lot cleaner too!

Oh, and did I mention that this campground has wifi? And nearby Starbucks and Caribou both?

But the very best part is getting to spend some relaxing time with "my boys." The rest is just icing on the cake. So I know I'm going to have a wonderful week! I hope all of you do too.

Sounds good, a very civilised way to camp.
