Wash out!

Our camping weekend was a bust. We were suppose to leave on Thursday morning. But with the rain reports. Which they really didn't confirm then that it was going to be bad. We decided not to go. Good thing. The rain and storms we had. Couldn't imagine myself out there in the rain, especially in a tent. They say it's going to clear up this afternoon. So we unpacked everything and put it away, don't know if we'll be able to go again this year. With all the items I bought for the trip. We are just going to have a cookout tonight. Went to the store and bought some crab legs and shrimp. The camping place where we were going, had seafood feast weekend. We'll just have it home.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Now here is something different. I always stick with the same old salad dressing. Oil and vinegar, Ranch, Thousand Island. Very rarely go out of the box. Plus, I don't like to spend and end up not liking it and it goes to waste. I had a coupon for $2.00 and it was on sale for $1.67. Figured, I'd give it a try. Boy, was I happy and surprised. The Asian Toasted Sesame is a keeper. The taste is out of this world and not very overpowering. Very different. I couldn't get enough salad. Tonight I will be using it as a marinade for some chicken. This is something that I will keep in my pantry, love it!

Have a great day!

Finally came to update things here. Really need to find the time to get on the computer. With the kids home for summer, there is just not enough time in the day. Plus, by the time night rolls around, I'm wiped. I just want to hit that pillow and sleep.

We've been doing alot of day trips. Last week, we finally tried camping. Dh has been after me for years to try it. And after seeing how much a room would be for a week, I figured why not. We invested in a rather large tent. Have to say, it wasn't that bad. Had nice weather and we had a great time. Such a good time, we came home and booked another trip at the end of the month. With my luck, it'll rain the whole time. That I'm sure will be an experience.

Would love to post some pictures, but haven't found my battery charger. Been taking some on disposable cameras. Now I need to get them turned into disks. I know when I do that, I will find my charger, let's hope!

To start getting back into things. I joined a couple of swaps. A Fall swap with Morning Glories and Moonflowers. And a Kiddie Halloween Swap with Polka Dot Moon. My 10 yr old is going to love to be involved in his own swap. He loves to get my packages, wait till he gets his own.

I'm off to get my day started. Have some major cleaning and laundry to catch up on. Plus, need to start getting my work station cleaned. It's just a mess with piles of papers and things to go through. Do you have an place in your home that things just pile up? Or am I the only one. ;)

Have a wonderful day!
