"All serious daring starts from within." (Harriet Beecher Stowe)
I went camping again with my niece's Girl Scout troop again this past weekend. Last May I accompanied my sister, the troop leader, and about 12 girls. We stayed in tents, boiled water to was dishes, and peed in a latrine. This time there were only 7 girls, we stayed in a cabin, but still had to go in the latrine.
I showed up dressed in a vintage G.S. sash and hat (found at an estate sale and destined for ebay). That's me with my niece, Clare. I also was in charge of keeping the wood stove going to heat the cabin. It was actually pretty toasty, except first thing in the morning since the only person who stoked the fire during the night was my sister, who was up with a puking Girl Scout. Too many s'mores, I guess.
I finished my first pair of socks during the three skits the girls put on during the evening. Will post them soon! Ialso worked on a baby afghan, which now has that campfire smell.
