I’m back from my camping trip. Now I’m supposed to tell you how wonderful my mini vacation was but it wasn’t. I mean, it wasn’t wonderful. It was okay, campsite conditions upset me (being unnecessarily crowded by other campers) and it didn’t seem that people there were respecting boundaries or being considerate. That sort of thing ruins it for me. We did go to the Millicent Rogers Museum. It was cool. We rode our bikes there from the campground. Eric said it was only 3.5 miles. He is such a liar. I think it was closer to 4.5 miles but it felt like 8. It was all uphill. I’ll tell you more about that tomorrow.
We got back late last night but today, I didn’t work beyond shipping. I needed a day to get over my vacation. It was nice being at home. Eric stayed home from work today too. We unpacked the car. Put things away. He went grocery shopping and I cleaned house. Laundry Fairy made a two-load appearance. I mopped the kitchen. The boy stayed here; he didn’t go with, so it was awful when we got home. The dishes hadn’t been done all weekend. The boy’s bathroom was a hazardous waste site. I told him to clean it or I’d blog about it. Bathroom was cleaned pronto. Add “blogs” to the list of parental discipline tools (particularly useful on adolescents).
We did eat well on the trip. I think we gained weight. We had tomato and spinach soup for dinner (tonight) with some sourdough we picked up at the co-op in Albuquerque. Now we’re drinking watermelon margaritas to finish the holiday off. Have you ever had one of those? We like to make “aguas”, fruit juices. Usually melon type juices are blended -lovely in the summer- the “lemonade” of the southwest. Sometime, experiment by blending up some seedless watermelon and use that as mixer for margaritas -or whatever. It’s killer.
Hopefully I’ll be able to focus on working tomorrow. See ya then!
