I only bought a few things, clearance rack things, but then some good coffee beans from The Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters, as well as a nice cup to drink on the way home. Char and Cam opted for bubble tea, they're crazy about that stuff.
We decided to order pizza for lunch/dinner, because it was so hot out, I didn't feel like going home and cooking! Instead, we went home and went in the pool! Pizza on the pool deck, how's that for opulence?
Tomorrow is cookie day...I'm making three triple batches of dough...and baking it all. At least, that's the plan....it's going to be hot tomorrow, hot and sunny, so hopefully I won't melt in the kitchen. I'm baking them at church, where there's an oven with six racks, that's not so bad.
Anyway...goodnight! (Sometimes I leave parts out. Camille is playing the violin, at ten o'clock at night, one of the girls stepped on a stick and had to have an antibiotic because a red line was starting to snake up...stuff happens....Margaret hurt her knee...she's staying here with her kids this week, so we baby proofed today...). But, it was a good day.

Well, if you thought yesterday was busy, well it was. I cleaned and vacuumed the camper, but sadly, and I do mean SADLY, it's not in good condition. Water leaked in, and has wreaked havoc, we can't really stay in the camper anymore. We can use it as a day space, use the yard, and the refrigerator, ect., but it's going to have to be towed away soon. I cried, absolutely sobbed, when I saw how the ceilings looked...
I cried because we aren't in a place where we can easily replace the camper. It's on the list, at least it's on MY list, to get a smaller camper, that we could once again tow to the parks, enjoy the Adirondacks, rather than tenting. But, we'll see. We can dream, but.
I cried because I was ashamed of how attached I am to the camper. It's such an earthly thing. But what it signifies is warmth and family, good times, celebrations. We had such fun with it. Morning coffee, the excitement of kids, even the years it's been parked at church, packing our bags and staying out there, so much fun!
I cried because I love my camper, and no amount of vacuuming and polishing is going to fix those ceilings. The water damage is all the way through the walls, some of the upper cabinets are absolutely buckling. It's not good. It's on it's deathbed.
Oh so dramatic.
When the broken camper was all clean, the girls were finished painting, we went to the pools for a bit, yes our church has two beautiful in-ground pools. Then home, then to the store for some things for today, then home, dinner: chicken fajitas!
I love the peppers, I stir fried the bottom bowl with some onions, mmm.
After dinner, no putting our feet up, back to the church to unpack and put away a bunch of things ordered from Amazon and Walmart for this week's youth camp, 200 kids need meals!
Then, Paul took us out for ice cream. I actually didn't get one, some times I do, but this time I didn't.
This fine morning, out the door by 9:30 with boxes, bags, and bins of dollhouse stuff, and the snow cone machine, for a children's day.
