Care Camp for Kids with Cancer

Every year my mom runs a Fundraiser at the KOA campground where she works. This is the weekend for it. I usually help her on the two days but this year I wasn't able to. I did however go out for a little while tonight. My friend Steph's husband and his brother play live music and sing and there are hotdogs on the grill with slaw and baked beans. SO, nothing stressful about going out and sitting for a while. And I do have a bit of cabin fever so it was nice to get out and around people for a bit.

I usually make jewelry pieces for door prizes or the Silent auction, you may remember that from last year if you've read my blog that long. But this year I didn't get anything made.

There's a yard sale early in the morning and I've agreed to go out and sit at a table and take payment. All the proceeds for every event goes to help kids with cancer go to special camps that KOA sets up.

And so I've had a full day and I'm beat. Oh and a friend of my mom's sent me a fruit basket today. I love fruit and it has grapes and oranges and apples and grapefruit and bananas. I hope I can eat it all before any goes bad. It is a lot of fruit!

Speaking of jewelry, I'm thinking of bringing out my gemstones and beads and making some. I'm in the mood, and it relaxes me and I'll have the time, plus a certain someone special sent me some new beads a while back and finally I'm itching to use them.

It's nice to read that you are getting out so quickly and mingling among others!

If I was there, I would help you eat that fruit for sure. I am craving grapes right this very second and I just got the coolest grapefruit knife in the world! It scoops out all the sections right out of the skin!

Chellie, it was nice to do so. Lately all I've seen is hospitals and Dr.'s offices.

Amy, maybe I need me one of those grapefruit thingies. I wish you were here to share too. I need a family to help me eat all this fruit.
