Leaps and Bounds!

Location: Catskill, NY (High 80, Low 66)

Leaps and bounds! That’s the way I feel this summer has been going by. I just can’t believe how fast the weeks are racing along.

IMG_2575The last time I wrote we had been up in the Adirondacks for a long weekend, and a half marathon in Lake Placid. After getting back to Catskill on that Monday, we stopped to have a little routine maintenance completed on the rig before pulling back into our spot here at Brookside Campground.

IMG_2591 I am really feeling settled in to our spot this year. We bought a stand to hang a hummingbird feeder from, and a hanging plant from the other side. For some reason just that little addition has made it feel so homey to me.


Last Tuesday and Wednesday we had various odds and ends to do around here, plus we went over to my sister’s office for part of one of the days. Harry worked at painting one section of the hallway, which looks really awesome.



On Thursday, we headed to Massachusetts for the beginning of our next planned event – a week with our little guy.



We had a great time! First of all, our weather was absolutely spectacular! Last year we had to spend the whole week inside because it was so hot and humid. Not this year.





































Time playing outside, a trip to the local water park, playing at the playground, trips for soft ice cream and going to the movies…it was a great week! And now, after having brought Schaun home to MA this afternoon, it’s time to enjoy the fact that we are retired childless individuals!! (And I know two cats who are also very happily enjoying their quiet spaces once again!)

Tomorrow we get back to normal life…. Ahh!


  1. You guys have certainly been busy!!!! I like your plant and hummingbird feeder...looks nice!!!!

  2. I sure know how fast the summer is going. We are half way through our time here. Definitely looking forward to hearing from Amazon!

  3. Looks like you are enjoying the summer! TM and I think it is whizzing by quickly ourselves.

  4. Never thought of going to a water park without kids, but now we might. It looks like fun!

  5. I know what you mean, 13 or so weeks and we're headed out, where did the last 2 months go. Found my shepherds hook when we got back here, plan on taking it with us.
