I’m in recovery mode. My weekend was so full of things to do I kind of lost it. As a result I was a mess on Monday, nearly got in a car accident (not my fault) leading to a broken carton of eggs in the back seat where all the groceries went flying. At home it continued with me having a case of the dropsies and breaking my most favorite glass bottle; smashed to bits on the concrete driveway as I unloaded the car. It was one of those days, you know, those days when you keep doing something stupid and “aw sh*%#” keeps slipping from your lips. That kind of day.
So this morning I just slept. It was the best thing I could possibly do. Now, I don’t have much time before I head in to work, but it was worth it.
Hopefully I can face the rest of my day with grace and calm.
Want to see photos from the weekend, the relaxing part of it? We went on an impromptu camping trip, just my hubby and I, to Boggs where he’s mountain bike racing next weekend. It was mostly relaxing, except for the part where when we got to the campsite the radiator fluid in the truck was boiling. We weren’t sure if we’d make it out the next morning, but we made the best of it.
We kept it simple – lot’s of food to get us through the night and morning! There’s something about camping trips that makes one fear starvation in the wild, and thus drives you to stock up on all manner of indulgences.
As you’re looking at the photos take note of the ones where we’re cooking. My husband made a cook stove from two beer cans. It uses denatured alcohol and works like a dream. The most lightweight camp stove ever. I’m not the only creative person around here!
PS. We made it home without destroying the radiator. All’s well.

Hope you are feeling more relaxed now. And how do you make this beer can stove? Fantastic! I want one of those. Can I order one for Christmas? Family discount? Tee hee
yeah, I was telling N he should make a few more or at least teach me how. He could sell them. He’s also looking at a design to make one out of tuna cans.
