last nite we fell asleep to the sound of distant thunder & light rain.
this morning bacon, eggs, gravy, biscuits, hot cakes. mmmmm
lying in zero gravity now dog asleep on my lap nothin better
im lyin in a warm cozy queen size memory foam gel top bed. disappointed? wanted me to say in a sleeping bag on the ground?
did that for many times.
now my bones love the kindness of this soft camping! aahh! naptime!
does camping sound like good memories my husband & me are here at campground in rv listening to a family with all around the campfire. the little ones squealin while diggin worms. wonderful sounds. im gonna try not to be sad that it's not our family. we don't have one.
a campfire. not tonight.
let's play donkey kong!
can you really say you're camping if you're in a rv?
drizzlin rain this morning and the woods are turning green. i feed the birds and it's like an airport here with them comin in. very quiet here in these woods except for all the chirpin & singing of their excited voices.
we will break camp on wednesday and roll outta here. been a 6 month stay here. will miss the freedom of walkin out the door with my 3 little dogs no leashes.
mmm. smell that bacon on a crisp woodsy morn, campfire smoke wafting thru the trees? come on over. coffee's hot.
my husband is a campfire lover. we have been camped here in south carolina woods for 6 months.
he goes into the forest draggin huge pieces of downed trees. he spies for red cedar.
this morning we enjoyed one of his nice warm fires @ 4 am, with our 3 little dogs, all of us wrapped in blankets, stars shining like diamonds in a black velvet sky.
have to start with a nice fresh salad now. when the lettuces get full ill pick them
i didn't get burned pickin up that huge hot pot this time. no one wanted onions. they said no onions. ok. i did add diced, peeled tomatoes. so the soup was served. tentatively. carefully ladeling each serving. i think they liked it. smiled. didn't comment on ingredients. didn't say thanx. but served nonetheless just a meal. i knew they didn't really care for soup. but it was all i had.
this huge pot of hearty soup is pipin hot and i will take it off the burner. i'm goin to serve my soup over the weekend with hopes all enjoy.
what spices to add?
onions? they bring tears. tho i choose with love & care, not everyone appreciates my recipe.
this soup pot is heavy i had to be mindful of the pot i chose for this soup 2 large handles, deep. only certain potholders keep the handles from searing my palms. i will use doubled up holders as this pot of hot soup has to move to a different burner
added a few more ingredients to the soup. a sprig of bay leaf, oh the okra, have i already put that? well a little more won't hurt.
and i will need to simmer slowly.
sometimes i go stay a while in a gigantic pot of soup. all the ingredients are not of my choosing. some are. the meat and potatoes, considered to be main ingredients, are cooked too fast, too long, kinda tough. so i add carrotts for color and sweetness, celery for bulk and the corn is just thrown in, hard to digest. chunks of tomato are good for softness and warmth to tummy. this pot cooks slowly and i will give you other ingredients later as it mildly simmers. once the items enter the pot, i can't change them, only stir.
my blog is only periodic &describes my emotional choices last blog i had chose to enter the purple swirling vortex with sparks flyin bouncin up against all those sparks was beatin me up burnin my gentle sides
if i stayed much longer black charred callouses would form
losin strength to keep up this battle i began just lying in there swirling started humming a little tune to relax & suddenly just dropped to the ground
THAT SIGN MEANS WARNING TO MOST BUT I ENTERED DARKNESS ALL AROUND THERE WAS A HUGE SPINNING PURPLE VORTEX SPARKS OF CHARTREUSE SHOOTING FROM IT'S CIRCUMFERENCE I CREPT CLOSER AS A DEEP VOICE SAID WELCOME YOU HAVE ARRIVED GIVE ME YOUR WORLDLY BELONGINGS IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE A PART OF OUR WORLD I DID ENGULFED IN A VIOLENT SPINNING MASS NO ESCAPE BLINDED BY HOT CHARTREUSE SPARKS WILL I MAKE THIS MY WORLD OR ATTEMPT ESCAPE
This blog is a black hole that I believe consumes all that enter. it slowly chews and swallows.
