Good morning... it's a rainy icky stormy yucky morning here in Wisconsin. Nothing much to write about but I had a pic in my "blog ideas" folder so I thought I would write about that! Here is the pic:
Steveio was at a rummage sale last week and found these collapsible bowls from Tupperware. The lady said she hosted a party and these were extra gifts they gave her. They were all brand new in the sealed bags yet!
They are kinda cool, and come with lids. You can pop them open just as far as you need to any depth to contain the foods you want to put in them. They seemed to wash up okay and I used one so far for noodles. I will see if I like them for long term use. They will sure reduce once section of my cabinets where I keep a set of big stacking bowls if they are *keepers* for the long haul.
Steve also found some tall Tupperware drinking cups with snap on lids with a tiny hole for a straw. He said they will work great for his Johnnie Walker Red Label and water, and now he won't spill any. I laughed and called them his Big Boy Sippee Cups! Also, I said if he is spilling his drink, it's time to cut him off anyhow. LOL
Oh.. I just remembered I still had more pics in my camera from the past weekend! Remember, because we had been camping with electricity, I strung up our party lights along the awning edge.... We don't use them very often.
They are little metal leaves with holes in them to let the light through. Not too tacky for party lights. I am considering getting a string of LED lights and putting the little leaf light covers over them, and use them all the time when we are boondocking too.
Oh, here is a photo of our fancy campfire ring on that site at Twin Bridge campground, with some totally bushed out dogger enjoying the evening campfire with us. It was a great campfire and we sat around it till late that night.
And here are a few pics from Father's Day. We had already celebrated with Erin/Mark/Chelsea and also Heather/Jesse/Jameson the weekend before. So on Father's Day while they were off celebrating with their other half's fathers, we were invited to our son Dan and his wife Heather's house...
and we got to spend time with little Allegra, our middle granddaughter.
We had a nice cookout in their backyard ... and Allegra's other grandparents, Phil and Peg, and auntie Kim were there too. So the little gal got passed around quite a bit.
Sassy Grandpuppy Tiger had to be in the middle of things... I tossed all the ice-cubes from my cooler for a game of fetch, and finally Tiger just helped himself to the ice face first into the cooler!
Since it's a rainy icky Wednesday here, I am home cranking socks, and watching Chelsea. This evening we will hit the grocery store. Steveio has to stock up for the food for their annual Father/Son fishing trip, they are leaving tomorrow morning in his dad's motorhome. Steve is in charge of all the food, cooking and menus. Then Pete does the dishes and cleans up.
That leaves OUR motorhome for me to take up to North Bayshore park. I am taking each grandchild one day a piece. I think I will call it Camp Grandma! It should be a fun adventure!~!
