So for those of you who don’t know…..we’ve been camping for over a month now. Well, technically we’ve been spending our nights in a camper but that’s a far cry from how we used to camp.
Ben and I camped a lot when we were in college. We’d camp on school nights (scandy!) and cook on a tiny grill. We’d read, write, draw, listen to our favorite music and play some of our own. We’d sleep in our little tent or sometimes under a blanket of stars. Ben would always get me to class on time……8:00 am classes are no joking matter, at least for me because I’m a stickler for being on time. After class we’d return to our little campsite and do it all over again. No bathrooms or running water……fun times! Don’s Fish Camp in San Marcos, we’ll never forget you!
We have named our new abode “The Wagon” and it’s as close to heaven as two campers can get. It’s super efficient and we have all the things that we need. Sure, the heat went kaput a few times and the water pressure can be more like a stream but hey…it’s home! Ben doesn’t complain but every now and then I miss a long hot shower. My folks think we’re nuts since there is a super nice bathroom about 100 feet from us…Mom begs us to use it. But then it wouldn’t be what this is all about, would it?
This morning, Ben said that this has been his most favorite camping trip ever. It’s been cozy and we’re happy…..what else is there?
Our workspace is coming along, Ben has built an amazing paint booth and we are stocking up on our supplies. Every day is like Christmas with the UPS man bringing packages large and small. Production should start in a week. We can’t wait!
New Year’s Eve was spent burning a huge Bonfire, thanks to Ben and Joel. The Wagon didn’t melt so all was good! Linny is here from Austin with her 3 fur babies….that makes 9 dogs total. 7 of which are all Vizslas from the same family. Ruby, Jubil, Sissy, George, Bobbie Sue, Ripley and Birdie. Vixen and Lola are the daughters from another mother…LOL. We wouldn’t be anywhere else.
So much to look forward to in 2013! Our first show is coming up…it’ll be here before we know it!
