A couple weeks ago, my husband & grown kids and I camped at Ft Stevens in Oregon for 4 days. It is the first time we've been camping all together in a couple of years.
The wreck of the Peter Iredale rests on the beach there. If you Google it, you can find pictures of when it was newly washed ashore in 1906.
Now we're back to our usual chilly and damp sort of late Spring days, waiting for the sunshine to reappear!
We didn't do anything extraordinary, but we walked a bit and the kids rode the bike trails. I'm pretty much a homebody and the third night was just a bit too long of a stay away from the farm for me, so I was glad to get on the road and head back.
We had a hot dog roast in that campfire ring during one of those nice weather days recently.
So far this month, we've been vendors at a two-day craft fair and just a few days later camped in the next state for 4 days. We had another vendor space for our annual Spring Festival at our local grange (for which I baked 18 loaves of bread and my daughter baked 18 pies) and then we spent 5 hours sitting at yet ANOTHER
vendor space (Farmer's Market). That one was outside under a canopy and the weather cooperated NOT! It was rainy, cold and windy! Took me hours to finally thaw out!
The Spring rush on the farm is slowing down a bit. We just weaned Pinky the calf today and now we're down to once-a-day milking! A great relief for the hands. We're still bottle-feeding the last two kids for another couple of weeks.
I've been totally frustrated with my computers. Both of them are older, reconditioned creatures. Both of them downloaded Windows 10 WITHOUT MY CONSENT and now my craft room computer is STUCK on the download and awaiting....well, someone to come and figure it out. My laptop now seems like a stranger with its new operating system and I can't get it to cooperate very well with my camera. I feel like an old dog trying to learn a new trick!
One should always console oneself with dessert, so I picked Rhubarb and made this lovely cobbler.
I got the recipe from the Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond) and you can find it here:
With a dollop of whipped cream on top and a steaming cup of coffee alongside, well, you could practically conquer the world. Or maybe even Windows 10.
