camping and such
First thing in the morning, as soon as we're both awake, I say, "Four little pieces of flagstone", which cracks us both up. Mom says she had the same thought.
We love that scene.
(from Mr Blandings Builds His Dreamhouse (Cary Grant, Myrna Loy), based on a novel, and which inspired both Don't Eat the Daisies (Doris Day) and Money Pit (Shelley Long, Tom Hanks). For our family, this movie is a must-watch during any reconstruction, redecorating, or drawn-out project. Get yourself a copy and watch it. Seriously. Because I can't describe this scene without it loosing something. I tried.)
Anyway, back to camp.
We have breakfast - yogurt, kashi.
And we reminisce about our favorite serendipitous camping trip, where we found, spilled under the tables, a lot of seed beads. Not just the beads, either. Enough fishing line to string them on, too. Suddenly we had a project and a souvenir, all in one. That was just the coolest.
