Princess Jasmine

This is truly one of the best pictures I've ever been able to take of Jasmine. Usually she is very aware of the camera and turns her head away.

She has been such a camp dog! There was a boxer at another camp some distance away that came snooping in her territory. Well - she started chasing him and he ran as fast as he could back to his camp! It was hilarious.

Today is my birthday

A milestone birthday I could do without, but as one very wise person said to me "It's better than the alternative!"

Road To Camp

Can you believe we pulled our trailer up this road? I thought I was going to have a breakdown, but we made it without any mishaps and we're settling in. The thing that has been hard is the trees. Can you see them - they are dying. I cried.

Can you see the squirrel in this picture?

We have a flying squirrel who comes at night and raids our bird feeder, but this is the first time we've seen this guy.

One of the best things about summer.

Fresh corn from the garden of a generous neighbor

One of my favorite things about summer - corn on the cob!

Victoria Cascades

We saw these falls while looking for a picnic spot. The road was a little treacherous, but worth it for this view.

Yellowstone National Park

Yay - we made it!

Check out the dragonfly hanging out on the antenna of our trailer. Do you think he wants to go to Yellowstone with us?

I've started a new project (surprise!)... take along on our upcoming camping trip. I'm making this for someone special. I wrote about the yarn here. So far it is knitting up so nicely. I hope the someone special will love it!

I want to share this remarkable recipe. If you try it, you will be surprised. These are yummy! I found the recipe online and decided to try it for our upcoming camping trip. Here goes:

1 box saltine crackers (4 sleeves)
1 2/3 cup canola oil
1 package dry ranch dressing
about 2 tbsp (or to taste) crushed red pepper flakes

I also added parmesan cheese (the kind in the shaker). Dump the crackers in a large bowl (I used a gallon ziplock baggie). Wisk other ingredients together and pour over crackers. With a spatula start turning the crackers (or if using a baggie just seal and turn). Continue until the mixure is absorbed into the crackers.

You might think the crackers would be soggy, but in fact, they are crunchy with a wonderful flavor. We used the whole 2 tbsp of crushed red pepper flakes because we like it hot. It's totally not overwhelming though. If you try it, leave a comment to let me know what you think.

Sunflowers on their way...

Check out the sunflower progress. This is the result of the babies I wrote about here. I wonder who will win the competition.

My First Harvest

I'm so excited - these are my first red tomatoes from the patio garden. I paired them with some basil for a good combination - plus it looks pretty.

These are so beautiful just beginning to bloom in my front flower garden.
