Fridays Feast 6/22/07

I spent the day, yesterday, getting ready for the first camping trip of the season. WOO HOO! I love camping. No, let me rephrase that. I love WIMPY camping! That's what my daughter calls it, because we have a beautiful little 25ft trailer with cushy beds, a couch, table, stove, oven, sink, tiny little bathroom, fridge and freezer, furnace, air conditioner, cd player, and we mustn't forget the microwave (which I've yet to use). Way better than a tent, let me tell you.

We bought the trailer 3 years ago, after the last camping trip I would ever do with a tent. That last tent trip involved wind, RAIN, cold, the tent collapsing on me during the night, and waking up to a cold wet lizard on my face. It was the lizard that put me over the top. I proclaimed to sweet hubby that was IT! NO MORE TENT!

I love my trailer. My tiny little portable vacation home. Drag it into the beautiful outdoors and live like a queen.

I will be taking my Monkey Sock with me, and some beading. I always take creative projects with me. There's nothing like sitting on a beach with something cold and frosty in the cup holder, and a project in my hands, watching nature.

So, there'll be no blogging until Tuesday. In the meantime, here's my Fridays Feast.

Name a funny habit you have.

I silently count stairs when walking up or down them. Don't know why, done it all my life, find it incredibly annoying about myself.

If you could instantly know how to play a musical instrument, which one would you pick?

My friends and relations won't believe my answer, but it's true. The violin. I know, I know. I already play the violin. But I'm not very good. Every note is a struggle for me to make. I would love to be able to pick it up and easily make it sing like Itzak Perlman does.

How long is your hair?

'Bout 18 inches I guess.

Main Course
When was the last time you forgave someone, and who was it?

Ummm, lets see. I guess it would be Tommy (my Iggy) for peeing on the carpet yesterday. I don't understand it. Why can't they stop doing that???? I've never had a dog so hard to potty train as these two. If I lock them up in the bathroom for a couple hours to run to the grocery store, they hold it. In fact, they'll hold it for 8 or 9 hours. But if I lock them in the living room for 30 minutes to go run an errand, they pee on the floor. Arrrgghh..............That's why hardwood flooring is in my future. If animals are gonna pee on my floor, I want it easy to clean up.

What is your favorite kitchen appliance?

My dishwasher. The guy who invented it should have a place in heaven. If I could take it camping with me, I would.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Great point about the dishwasher... I put down "kitchen knife" but anything that makes life easier is my favorite appliance :)

  2. *envies you and your dishwasher*
    That'd be my favorite appliance too if I had one. But for now I"m the only dishwasher I've got.

    Have a good weekend.

  3. your main course was hilarious. At first I thought you had a son who peed on the rug and I was going to agree with you (don't ask--potty training woes) but the I saw it was you dog. Great answers!!

  4. I have a great dishwasher when I go camping! Two actually - they are called Nephew #1 and Nephew #2. Nice feast!

  5. Great feast. I don't have dogs to potty train. My problem is trying to potty train my kids. LOL This is why I don't get a dog. I am cleaning up after my children. :-)
