Back from Camping but gone huckleberring.....
We had a wonderful time camping. I swear camping in the rain is far better than in the hot hot. It actually only rained one morning, and miraculously cleared up in the evenings for lovely evenings and great fishing. I think you can call it great fishing if they mostly caught only fun, and two fish that were actually incidental. We did get cut down two trees and get 3/4 of a load of fire wood. Poppie can't seem to actually see trees standing by the road awaiting cutting with an empty truck and go on without putting them in the truck. The girls were just excited it was a small load and it took no time. They rode their bikes to the trees, loaded the truck up and with Lady Jay in tow road back to the camp site and commenced to swimming in the cold creek. We got back in the late afternoon and just had time to go up to the top of a different mountain to check on our huckleberry patch. It was ready and begging to be picked so after church this morning we were off to pick huckleberries. Lady and Sweetie came up and picked as well. We ended up with 6 quart bags stuffed so probably a couple gallons all toll. We are headed back up in the morning to pick more huckleberries, they wait for no one when they are ripe they need to be picked..... tomorrow is the day. I am happy to be home sort of we had a great time and much needed away time from the grands. Oh, I forgot the grands stayed with G-Ma and they had a lovely time. They were so new to the experience they were angels for her, hmmm I am not sure how she got them to do that they let their little devils come out when I have them everyday..... May the Lord bless your life, may you ask and the Lord bless you with all your needs, may you know that the Lord loves you and gave his son for you, yes you, the free gift of salvation is Jesus's gift to you... tomorrow.
