I didn't realize how much I'd been looking forward to this campout until Greg couldn't find spots for us. The campground we originally wanted to stay at is closed for the season - beetle killed trees that they're cleaning up, or something like that. So he headed north instead, looking for our weekend homestead. Two campgrounds later, and he called me to let me know that nothing's open... Maybe we can camp in the back yard? No way. If we're not camping, I'm not going to drag out all our gear just to set it up in the backyard. So he headed south, and eventually found us spots at Bertha Creek Campground.

Sunday was such a nice day that we couldn't resist going for a drive. I didn't intend to actually purchase any flowers - it's too early for me. The nights are still cold enough that I have to bring the flowers in over night, and then I have to watch so my cats don't eat them. And when my cats DO eat them (since I don't keep watch all night long), I have to clean up the leafy cat barf. All-in-all, it's a pain in the ass, and I just prefer not to have to deal with it.

Every summer I try to do as many of the charity walks as I can. Mostly because it's an extra incentive to get in some exercise. I've already missed three, but made an extra effort to get to the Amblin' for Alzheimer's walk. Not because it's an issue that's near and dear to me - just because I like the venue (Kincaid Park is very pretty), and I enjoy the folks that I've walked with for the past few years. It helps that the weather was absolutely gorgeous!
