le voyage!

No, we're not going to Paris, but at least we are going somewhere!

Sweet hubby and I are finally going to take a vacation!
We've looked forward to it all summer but have had many delays.
But, hopefully, and with God's blessings we'll be leaving on Friday for a ten day camping trip in one of Alabama's wonderful state parks!

We woke our camper up and gave her a sprucing up.
She's had too long of a nap this year.

I'm getting my house all spruced up too.  I like to leave my home clean. 
The floors are all swept and mopped, the furniture is dusted, and the baths are scheduled for their cleaning today.
I love coming home to a clean home.
I'm being quite optimistic here, since our two sons are staying home. :)

I've got my homemade personal products all replenished.
My antiperspirant is made and tucked into its rose-bedecked porcelain home, although I'll switch it over to a little covered tin container to make it more travel-friendly.

My toothpaste (baking soda) bottle is refilled.

And, last-but-not-least, I ran some coarse salt through the blender for my saline nasal rinse.

That might sound nasty, but I make it cute by topping the jar with my cute kitty fabric!

Groceries are bought and the meat is in the freezer just awaiting sweet hubby's grilling talents.
I'll make dinner rolls today to tuck into the freezer.  They'll be all ready to pop into our toaster oven and add to the fresh, raw veggies and grilled meat for a simple fuss-free meal.

That's one reason I love camping, I get out of most kitchen duties.

After checking off everything on my To-Do list today, I hope to have a good night's sleep and awake refreshed for Thursday and the three L's:
  • Laundry
  • Library (gotta have fluffy reading material while on vacation)
  • Lunch out with my girlfriends
See you soon!

  10. Hi Sherry Sweetie...
    Oh how wonderful is your camper. I love it. Can I come along too? It looks big, I am sure it could hold all of us don't you think? Your poor husband, he would lose his mind for sure.

    Love this Paris kitty fabric. So pretty. Where on earth did you find it? I would love it if you shared your recipe for the saline nasal rinse. I have such a hard time out here in Phoenix in the desert with my sinuses. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Have a wonderful trip.
