Our fourth of July was quite interesting. We were going to go camping at Lake Murray with our winery friends, but when they went to get us some spots the monday before the 4th all of them were taken. :( We called around and found out that all the spots were taken at Arbuckle, Clear Creek and Duncan lake as well. Then someone came up with the idea that we should just take our campers to the winery.... so that is what we did. We had a fish fry on Friday at the winery followed by fireworks. Saturday some of us went to Winemaker's house for a pool party and steaks, we had alot of fun but we are all worn out. Oh yeah.... the camper is MUCH better than a tent!!

I'm sure most of you have heard about our last camping trip. Turns out I will be doing more camping. Since our trip , the Mr. decided that we need a camper. One that dosen't leak and has an AC. I on the other hand have a hard time spending money on something that will get used so rarely, however , we finally found on we could agree on. So... we are the proud owners of an 84 model camper trailer! I don't know how long it is but it's tiny. It is in really good shape, has had one older couple. She ain't pretty, but she has no leaks and a good AC. They also kept it in a barn so it has held up well. Plus it was in our price range!! I might become a camper after all.....MAYBE! Now if I could just get rid of that piece of junk in my yard that used to be a camper I would be doing good. ;)

Lake trip.

In reply to Pipers comment.... the lake trip was NOT fabulous!! We did have fun though, except for the RAIN, it goes a little something like this.
Memorial weekend we went to lake Murray with our wineaux buddies, we took Chara along for entertainment. We arrive at Camp Legends on Saturday morning around 10 ish... everyone is just starting to stir from a long night of campfire chat. Winemaker starts breakfast..... more like lunch, and we all eat a great meal of camp hash, something we eat all the time at our house, it consists of all the essential ingredients: eggs, sausage, potatos, onion...served with Texas toast. Then we take the boat out for awhile. Chara, Lindsey and Bonnie ride the tube. Chara was bummed because Bob wouldn't dump her off. That evening we had fried squash, brisket, baked beans and roasted onions. YUM!! Chara and Bob played guitar and sang as we all relaxed with our wine slushies that Debbie made.
Time for bed! We are all worn out and hot and sooo tired, but wait.... there are storms comming. We get the camp all settled we think everything will be ok. We go to bed, our tent shouldn't leak...we have the rain cap on. Oh yeah everyone else has camper trailers. About midnight I hear the wind change directions.... here comes Chara. "I'm gonna get in the car" she says. Jason says we will stay in the tent " we'll be fine!" The rain starts..... about 20 min pass and then starts the dripping. I am wet, sunburned and exausted. Oh yeah, I don't like camping either even on a good day, so I'm pretty grumpy. jason finally says let's get in the car. We get in the car which is completely full of most of our gear because we are cooking for the whole camp the next day. So here we are.. the 3 of us ... in the car. It's Hot! We can't open the windows because the rain comes in. I swear I'm never camping again. Everyones campers are full, so we can't get in anywhere. Finally the rain stops, Chara says "I'm gonna go sleep on the boat". After tossing and turning and rearranging about a million times I finally doze off about 5 a.m. Daybreak.... I give up, I'm gonna take a shower. It was like heaven. I feel better. We get around, then everyone else starts stirring about 9 a.m. " How did ya'll sleep?? Did it rain much??" I think I will kick everyone in the chins!! LOL!! Just kidding. We make breakfast, French toast, sausage and eggs. Everyone is happy. Chara started a water fight... more like a war. The guys played horseshoes, then we go for more boating. We had fajitas for supper which everyone said we should sell. We decided we should charge admission for food and entertainment, we could make some money!
By this time we are REALLY tired so Jason , Chara and I head home. All in all we had fun, but I'm still not much of a camper ;)

I tried to post some pic's but it won't cooperate with me..... Maybe I'll try later.

Hello to all my blog buddies! It has been awhile, which leads me to this post. I have been noticing that several of us are in a blogging slump. It would seem to me that most of us have somewhat lost interest in staring at our pc's and have found better things to do or maybe we are just un-inspired.....I dunno. I think my reason is that there is too much sunshine to be cooped up in the corner pecking away on the keyboard. Anyhoo... you probably won't hear much from me unless it is fabulous.

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I just haven't done anything blog worthy.
This weekend is the festival out at the winery. Chara is going to be singing , so you should all come out. It's only going to cost $5 to get in and there will be music, food, wine, beer, pop and water. I think Chara goes on at about 5 p.m. so come out early and get a good spot. Oh yeah, bring a comfy lawn chair..... hope to see ya there.

Vineyard Update.

There really isn't much to tell just yet. Nothing is happening, we still just have sticks in dirt. We have decided not to name it yet. I guess we are like expectant parents not wanting to name the baby just in case. We don't want to jinx it LOL!
Mr. Brewer has started his first batch of wine, it is apricot. We started it Sunday, I will keep you posted on that as well. It should take a few months before it is ready. It has been a fun process already, and man it takes alot of sugar.... no wonder it makes your butt big.
Mr. the Diva and I all have "wine school" tonight so there will be more on that later. I think I am going to stay in the house today and hide from the wind.... my allergies are killin me. LATER :)
