Encouraging Hearts and Home 08.06.2020

A Free Printable Menu Planner, Strawberry Lemon Water, and Visit Brooklyn Bridge Park are this week's featured posts. 

Hello and Welcome!

We are entering our last month for camp hosting. August is a warm month in most parts of the country and that is no less true in the mountains of Montana! There has been one saving grace, however. When the temperature rises too high, the thunder kicks in, and with it along comes a bit of rain to lower the temperature. When this happens I am most grateful, because as luck would have it we also discovered that the A/C is not working in our little trailer house!

In the evenings and between camp chores I have been knitting winter scarves. This is my "inventory" so far, but I know many more will come about in the quiet evening hours.
Winter scarves to share!

These will be given away to those needing or wanting a winter scarf. In the past when I volunteered to help cook and serve a weekly meal in our local church, there was an offering table. Gifts for those coming to eat could help themselves to what they needed. These will be given over to the table for the next meal. 

Since we are down to the last month at camp, I had better get busy with my own discoveries of the wonderful out of doors right there at my door. First on my list is getting into the kayak and paddling around. From there is a 3.5-mile trail walk in to see some spectacular waterfalls, and of course the 3.5-mile walk back! I think a sack lunch might be a good resting period before the return trip begins!

  1. I'm sure your pretty scarfs will be welcomed additions to your church's offering table! How can you knit with no A/C ~ I would be melting from the heat and all that yarn LOL.

    1. It does get hot in the mountains in late afternoon! Yesterday we had lightening strikes that started small fires, but they were quickly put out by the Forest Fire Crews! I do tend to work on smaller projects in the warmer months. Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  2. Thanks for the feature of my visit to Brooklyn Bridge Park and thanks for hosting the fun! Have a great day.

    1. You are welcome! Like I said, New York is on my bucket list!
