20 Lines a Day Weekly Challenge: Camping

Posted on

I do not camp.

 It is not because I am a princess or because I think I am better than that.

It is because I have had some hair-raising experiences camping that I do not wish to repeat.

 For one, Camping =wet.

The last time I camped, my suitcase was floating in the tent.

Literally, it was floating.

 It seems that nature does not wish to be kind to me when I sleep outdoors in it.

 I have had a tree fall in front of my car, a giant spider taking up residence in my sleeping bag, and an attempted murderer prowling the campground.

 Camping is just not my cup of tea.

Do not get me wrong, I enjoy bonfires, smores, and playing cards by lantern light.

 I love to cook over the open fire and eat mouth-watering bacon for breakfast.

 So there are some great things about camping, however, no matter where I set up my sleeping bag, there is always a stray rock that ends up in my back.

  I also think bug bites and hot tents are unappealing.

Finally, I like air conditioning, running water, and showers that do not have spider webs in them.

 I like room service and movie channels.

  I guess I am kind of a princess.

 I just do not like to camp.

Playing in the Rain

Posted on

The JOY of playing in the rain.

“It’s a Miracle! “Exclaimed my grandson as he spied the rain falling from the back door window.   I opened the door and we both walked out to feel the wondrous drops of long-awaited moisture plop upon our heads.  It has been weeks since there has been any precipitation in our area.  The grass is dormant, except in the backyard where I have been watering it.  The trees are losing their leaves and nature is yearning for a clean drink of water.

It rained a steady rain for about 45 minutes.  This was enough to cause puddles to stomp in and for the air to smell fresh.  It is amazing how parched both nature and humans become when there is not any rain.  I hope this is a new trend in the weather.  I pray that we continue to produce enough rain to revitalize the crops, perk up the grass, and hydrate the trees.   Until then, I am grateful I was able to view the nectar from the clouds, and my grandson doing his dance of joy.
