From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

Roughing It

I don't think you can say you went camping unless you roughed it! Know what I mean? Camping is not pulling up in a pull -along trailer that stretches out to twice it's size with a flick of a switch. That's like being at home!! Know what I mean? We saw plenty of these "homes-on-wheels" recently when we roughed it with our six person tent. I know.... there's plenty of people that would say our tent is not roughing it. We are only four and we have enough room to stand tall and move around and dress comfortably. We even have a "rain jacket" over ours. It's great and spacious. We are quite comfortable in it.
However this weekend of camping has made me re-consider if I want to rough it anymore. It was HOT!! We came home a day early because my man didn't like the oppressive heat. It was many degrees hotter in the tent. I'm sure an AC unit would have made all the difference. hee hee   I can just imagine what that would look like now in our tent window. It makes me laugh! 
But it's not just because of the heat. Actually I found it quite do-able under the shade of the oak trees that framed our tent. It's the sweaty-dirty-no-clean-shower-nearby-having-to-go-to-the-bathroom-in-the middle-of-the-night-kinda-thing. Anyone with me?
So I'm not sayin' I'm against the "homes on wheels" kinda camping, I'm just thinking you can't really call it camping when you have all those indoor plumbing luxuries!! I sure would have loved that this weekend! HA!

This little caterpillar above was so cool!! We found him crawling on my man's grill. Soon he will turn into a Swallowtail butterfly. He made the camping trip for us!!
Hope you're enjoying your summer.
