Par for the Course

Okay, so I didn’t par the entire course, but I did par one hole; and that’s quite an accomplishment for me! Kevin and I went golfing on a beautiful Monday afternoon this week. I’m never going to be close to a pro, but I enjoy going out with Kevin.

I think for the first time my drive landed on the green on one of the par 3 holes on this course. I was still pretty far from the hole, but my second shot actually got very close. Then, a little tap on the ball and it was in the hole for a par. I’ll take that little victory on the golf course.

Yesterday I was back at Eric’s house doing some more painting. I really don’t mind helping him out, and the bonus is getting to spend some time with Eric after he gets home from work.

Things at the campground have been pretty quiet. We’ve been anywhere from half to near full the last few weekends. We did have an interesting family camp here for two nights last week. There were the two parents and then three kids around the ages of 10, 8 and 5. The interesting thing was that they arrived on bicycles. They had ridden their bikes from Wisconsin Dells which is about 60 miles away. The two older kids were on their own bikes, and the youngest rode on an attached bike to the dad.

I can’t imagine attempting that with kids. The dad told Kevin it was not going as they had planned due to some weather problems and all the hills they encountered. They had two small tents and it got pretty cool at night. After they left here, they were headed to Madison which is about 30 miles away and then back to the Dells. I sure hope they made it okay.

You may remember the picture I posted of a small quilt I donated to Korey’s camp’s quilt auction. It was about 40 inches by 20 inches and would be good for a table topper or wall hanging.

Yellow Poppies - donated to Carol Joy Holling Camp Quilt Auction

Korey informed me that it sold for $170. That just blew me away. I was hoping for maybe $50. The camp raised about $90,000 which was a bit less than the year before. The weather on auction day was extremely hot and humid, so lots of people didn’t stay around for all of the events. It was still a great fundraiser for a very worthy cause. I’m already planning my donation quilt for next year.

Not much else going on. We’re just living our day to day life and spending time with family and friends. It’s hard to believe August is just a few days away. In two months, we’ll be moving on again.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
