Friday Fragments August 3

It's been a lazy week at house of Viridian so there is not much to tell.  See who else is fragmenting at Half-Past Kissin' Time.

Mommy's Idea

So lazy that I didn't even participate last week as there wasn't much to say.  Now let's catch up with 2 week's worth of fragments.

I am running a contest on my postcard and stamp blog.  I'm giving away three chances to make a set of postcards of your own design or photograph, courtesy of MOO.  Check it out HERE.

The Girl and Second Son are off at sleep-away church camp, far away in the wilds of our state.  Raccoons have been supposedly sighted near the cabins, and The Girl claims to have heard coyotes wailing in the far distance.  Somehow, the activities, pool time, and new friends make up for it.

They went for 5 days, came home for 2 days, then went back again for 5 days more.  I miss them more this week.

#1 Son cannot go to camp because of his developmental delays.  He needs constant watching, and must be reminded to go to the bathroom.  Plus we don't think he could handle being away so many nights.  One or two yes, but not more.  It's so hard to see him left behind.

Agricultural report: the tomato plant are both flowering, but no little tomatoes.  My mother in law has plenty of cherry tomatoes.  The yard is being watered frequently, though the drought in this part of the state is not so bad as other areas, and other states.

TV report:  too hot to sit outside in the evening, so we are inside watching Undercover Boss and the Mentalist.  Love Patrick Jane's smile!

I am a camp lover!!

I grew up going to camp and raised my kids by taking them to camp.

In fact one of my own frags this week is about my kids and camp.

seeing raccoons at camp - fun
seeing raccoons in my yard - not much fun
Does your son enjoy walks in the woods? You can see alot without camping.

I must say losing weight is hard! But so worth it! Just the health part inspired me. I do not want to be like my own mama who just stopped moving and started sitting. Now she cannot walk at all.

I loved summer church camp! So sorry your son couldn't participate, I know it's hard to be left behind and it's really hard on mama!

Sorry you're having drought makes me stop complaining about our daily rains.

Have a great weekend!

I'm jealous about the flowering tomato plants! Critters ate our plants before the drought even had a chance to get them!

I discovered camping as a teen. Loved it! It's not so warm here in Central America, at least in the hills where I live. Spent time sitting outside last night with a friend. I hope it cools off a bit for you.
