Just to Catch Things Back Up

After a fabulous January start to our new Girl Camping year, things took an unexpected slip. Literally.

Mr. Ed broke his ankle when he lost his footing on a patch of ice and fell down in front of the Girl Camp Cabin.

The repair took 7 screws and a metal plate. The recovery, and the caretaking, are still underway. Mr. Ed is still on crutches, and I am his mobility assistant.

Naturally, this put camping and most any other kind of traveling on a shelf for a while. Especially when winter made a decisive reappearance.

Fortunately, my Mr. Ed is not the equine Mr. Ed, so a broken leg doesn't mean curtains. Thank goodness! As he's been mending, I've used some of the mostly indoor time at home to work on some trailer-embroidery projects.

Finished and pressed:

This past weekend, early March things finally worked out for me to spend a couple of nights doing some Girl Camping at our winter trailer encampment on the Salmon River.

Where it was just so great to be outside in warmer air and to see things turning green. That was the best Girl Camping decor of all.

So that's what's been up with yours truly--how about you?


  1. I love your start a girls camping group would it be a link to your group or separate?

  2. Hi, Debby,
    Thanks for getting in touch. There is no formal club for Girl Camping, so I can't offer you one to link to. If you'd like to start a camping club in your area, it would be stand-alone at this time. Or, you could join a club like Sisters on the Fly,
