Things I may not’ve mentioned before…

Seems like I’m taking my ‘introvert voice’ seriously, given how quiet it’s been here lately! Sometimes, as the days go by, and I fail to get a post done I get a bit overwhelmed with trying to figure out just where to start with all the catching up that needs to be done. So, I decided to just do a list of 10 things I may not’ve mentioned before. (Apparently not’ve (as a contraction of Not and Have) is not a word since I continue to get a red squiggly line under it. Ah, the spoken English language. Red squiggly or not, I’m keeping it!)

    1.  Our project here at Still Wood Sports Camp is going well! It’s hard to believe that we’re in our final days – just three days left! I’ve been keeping busy with some light (thanks to the very thorough cleaning done by previous SOWERS!) cleaning after guests and a bit of kitchen prep work.

    2. Gary has been doing some electrical work –

      and also built some sweet little shelves for the four family cabins –

      He’s been busy taking care of lots of things that the host couple, Ken and Gail, just don’t have time to get to.  (It’s kinda what being a SOWER is all about!)

    3.  They let me drive this little golf cart!

      This property used to be a golf course, so there are lots of cart paths.

      Fore!!! (Or is it Four? Why do they say that?)
    4. With my quiet afternoons I’ve been able to make some good progress on a quilt I’m working on for one of my grandboys. It’s felt very lovely to play with fabric and listen to the sweet whirrrr of my sewing machine. It’s still a work in progress – but here are some of the fabrics and the basic pattern.

      It’s going to be cute, right?
    5. It’s been just a year since I had my mid-winter Girls’ Week in Vermont following my sister’s cancer diagnosis. I know some of you have been keeping her in your prayers so I just wanted to give you a quick update! She’s doing great!!! Oh, there have been some ups and downs along the way, but she’s feeling great and her CAT scan results look promising. So much praise is being offer to our Mighty God!

    6.  And speaking of Vermont….. One of the staff member at Oakridge Ministries (our October and November project in Oklahoma), Jaime Ball, is an accomplished artist. (Trust me, the Vermont connection is coming). Since we had just been at the Cabin and I maybe was showing all kinds of cabin pictures to anyone who would look, Jaime asked if she could do a painting of the cabin!! I was honored, to say the least. We still need to get it framed, but it arrived last week – and I’m thrilled!

      Thank you, Jaime – what a treasure! Both you and the painting!
    7. Meet Stuart (in the front) and Addie.

      These guys belong to our hosts, but maybe because Gary carries (and distributes) dog biscuits they’ve been hanging around a lot! They are sweet pups, and I’m hoping this will stave off Gary’s desire to add a puppy to our little entourage.
    8. I stayed up to watch the eclipse last night. Did you? It was crystal clear here, and quite a sight to see, but I’m afraid my photography skills are not up eclipse photography!

      But it was still exciting (in a slow moving kind of way)!

    9.  

      Last week Gail took me on a tour of the rest of the property – mostly undeveloped. We crossed the low water bridge

      and climbed to the top of the ridge across the river (stream?). What a beautiful view of the camp!

      In this shot, you can just make out the RVs up next to the large building near the horizon to the left of the cross.

    10. Oh – and I have to mention the sunsets!!! Of course they aren’t all stunning, but when they are…. Ooo La La!

Thanks for stopping by – and not giving up on this intermittent blogger!
