September - An Idea for Every Day - Week 4

 We finally got our summer camping trip in! Yes… it’s true…. we waited until after our first snowfall, but nevertheless, we got it in! And, technically, it’s still summer, so woohoo to accomplished goals. Our nieces and nephews spent the weekend hunting down Bigfoot and feeding chipmunks. My sister and I got scorched in the concentrated U.V. waves that come with higher elevations while on a four-mile walk around a nearby like; our husbands came through relatively unscathed. Trips were made to a local Starbucks because our coffee solution failed. And while we formed plans to go again in two weeks, those plans quickly changed. It appears that as the season comes to an end, the campsites are booked solid. So, we’re not the only crazies going out this late in the season! It truly was a weekend of memory making and I’m so glad we were able to do it before summer’s end! What's coming up this week? Well, I’m glad you asked.
