Oh, my. I guess I do have a bog! One wouldn't know it by how I've been posting lately...
Well, I have a bunch more books to list, but the list has gone somewhere..Hmm..

So, I guess I'll just update a bit. Last week I came downstairs thinking about what to do with the chicken I defrosted and the daily cleaning schedule and when I sat down with my coffee R. said "How about we all go up to Cougar for a few days." OK, well! So we threw clothes together and some food, hitched up a jet ski and headed up. A client of Rand's has a cabin in the Mt. St. Helens area that she lets us use whenever she isn't.

That picture doesn't do it justice. It is so pretty there. The water just goes on and on. And the mountains, and the trees...



Anyway, it had been hot all week but as soon as we got up there it turned cloudy and cool. The kids were still up for playing in the water.





But what they really wanted to do was jet ski.



But then R. unloaded the thing and zoomed out a bit and it died and would not be brought back to life. What a bummer. He and E. had to paddle back to shore. Ah, well. That's how it is with those silly things. They only work about half the time. But when they are up and running they are the bee's knees around here.




















So this is all the riding the silly thing got.








So we just hung out at the cabin for the day. The kids played,

found critters.

All in all a pretty relaxing time. I wished we could have stayed longer but we had commitments in town. So, that's where I've been. What are y'all up to?

Well I'll be switched! I wondered why things were so quiet in your neck of the woods. That sounds like fun! Next time take me along!

Aaahh! Now I really am homesick! We missed our annual church campout at Cougar this year. Glad you had a good time. I was about to ask if you had taken an unannounced blogging break again...

Sounds like a wonderful, relaxing time anyhow. Too bad about the Jet Ski not working, though.

Mrs. Darling-You know that would be so fun. Then it would be a party!

Marbel, I'm sorry to make you homesick. Where did you guys camp out? The cabin is in Northwoods, just past Cougar and we usually use the Yale park for lake access.

We camped at the power company campground at Yale Lake. I think.

Lots of things make us homesick right now! But we are getting over it! There are lakes and campgrounds and church campouts here too. By next camping season this will feel like home!
