Today, I'll be folding the clothes we washed yesterday, cleaning the camper and taking care of the dogs.(of course) I hope to let them play for a long while this morning once the sun comes up (I'll have my coffee ready to drink, by then)
Memorial Day is always the UN-Official beginning of Summer, and outside it is going to feel like Summer with our highs this week in the upper 80's and even a couple of 90's. There's only a small chance of rain tomorrow evening in the forecast so far, but of course, that could change.
We have two families of wild Geese, in the area. One family had 5 goslings but now has 4 and the other family has two. There is a noticeable difference in their sizes. There were up here, close to the camper yesterday morning as we were leaving, searching for scraps, I think.
It was a busy weekend for the campground. The pool is open but we have yet to go up to it. It's still a bit too cool to be in the water for me. Now next weekend may be a different story. One of our weekend end neighbors had a pet pig with them. That was different, to say the least. I didn't go over and say "Hi" though. We had a family in tents up in the woods at one of the sites up in our section, as well. (No idea what they did for "bathroom" since there's no facilities up here. They did have water and power.
We lit a fire in our fire ring and I roasted the last of the marshmallows. I shared the marshmallows with the dogs (their's didn't get roasted). they got to stay outside (On their leads, tied to the camper) for almost two hours and I think they enjoyed every minute of that time. I was able to let them play outside for about 40 minutes last night just as it was getting dark. now that we are mostly in reruns on the T. V. I expect the dogs will be enjoying more evening time outside, At least until the bugs find us.
I fed the cats early this morning when I first say the tree trimmers getting close to our section. Strips was the only one of the cats to come find me while they were doing the work
I'm considering making a very large Chef Salad for dinner tonight and what's left will be used for our daily salads for the rest of this week. I'll cut up the vegetables once I get the dishes out of the way, and will cut up some meat to add to the salad this afternoon. I picked up Radishes and Celery to add to the salad. The radishes I'll add when I make the salad but the celery will be put in a separate container so Jerry can add how ever much he wants if he wants any at a all (he's not much for celery) I'll have mushrooms on the side and the tomatoes will also be in a separate container so that the salad isn't have some fresh baby spinach that I'll add to my salad but I doubt Jerry will want any for his.
I am wearing... right now, a Moo-Moo but I'll be wearing shorts today
I am reading... "Dragon's Time" by Todd McCaffery. Or, I should say I'm trying to read it. My Kindle keeps messing up every time I try to read more than a page or two.
I am creating...
A few plans for the rest of the week...

Apply a small dot of hot glue to the earring post. Working quickly, center the pom onto the post. Set aside to cool.
Once cool, attach backing and present earrings in a small gift box.

The Cats have enjoyed coming in one window and going out another all day long today. I have closed all but one of the windows and it will be closed here in a bit as it's starting to get a bit cool in here. .
Dinner was Grilled Pork Chops, Salad, Pork and Be and I made a Rainbow Cake. I took a white cake mix and made it up,I added a teaspoon of Cinnamon to it, then I used food color to color up about 2/3 of a cup of batter, pour that into my cake pan, then colored up another 2/3 cup of batter and did Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple. It took a bit longer to bake but it turned out nice. I frosted it with sugar free frosting and sprinkled just a bit of Green sugar to mask that some of the crumbs pulled to the top of the cake when I frosted it.
I am hearing... Right now, Jeopardy show. I hope to catch "Dancing with the Stars" this evening. It's almost over with. We saw the final show of Survivor. I wanted Cochran to win and he did.
I am wearing... /black Sweat Pants and a black top.
I am reading... Numbers 19 in the Bible this morning, as well as "100 easy cooking Tips", by Jamila Khan and lots of emails.
One of my favorite things... is getting pictures from my daughter of them and the Grand Kids.
A few plans for today... Clean up the kitchen from Dinner,

Of course after Red is Orange
And after orange is Yellow
After Yellow is Green
After Green is Blue
And of course after Blue is Purple
Both, all done and ready for me to put the laces back in and let them sit a couple of days. I want them to be very dry before I wear them the first time. I'll spray them with some water proofing made to spray on tents before I wear them.

paper towel under shirt
One under, one over...On the one under,I put one of the prints under the shirt then I poured a bit of Rubbing Alcohol
over the top of it.. for the one over, I put some Alcohol on the shirt, then placed a print on top of that, then allowed to dry.
second test... go over a design with a Sharpie then lay on Alcohol wet material smeary and not what I wanted. I used a lighting bolt for this and not the fist and lighting.
