*cough, cough, cough.... cough*
Bother these allergies! At least I don't feel as bad as yesterday. I woke up yesterday feeling awful, and I only got feeling better after managing to take a short nap yesterday. I thought I wasn't going to feel up to going up to camp, but I was better by late afternoon and able to make it.
And boy, was it cold up there! It got fairly cold here at home, but I'd forgotten how cold it gets up at camp...brrr! Needless to say, that did not exactly help my cough and by the time I got home my throat was so worn out I was talking in a very, very low voice. And my parents were laughing at me... *sigh* After three cups of hot tea, my voice is now back (mostly), but when I got up this morning it was sort of missing on some levels! :p
Mandolinartist and I were talking last night about living out in the country, and she pointed out that I'd have even more trouble with my allergies, at least until I got used to it. Shoot...I hadn't ever thought of that! I thought it would be nice to live out in the country with tons of space and all...and tons of grass...*sneeze*. Maybe not! :p
Other than freezing, we had fun going up to camp...there weren't really any games we could join in, but we watched the games and talked in between...and we had grilled hamburgers for supper! Mmm...timed that right! lol! Tomorrow (tonight) will be homemade pizza, which is also good, but it's really best later when you eat it cold late at night.
I didn't get very many good pictures, I think mandolinartist got some good ones of all of us, so I'll post some of those when she emails them to me.
Caroline and Lauren:
It was cloudy so there wasn't a really good view off the mountain. When it's clear you can see downtown Winston (or maybe that's from up on the cliffs...):
The sign usually says "Welcome Homeschoolers":
