Good For The Soul

I firmly believe that being in nature is good for the soul. So is spending time with family. And not having cell phone service. And camp fires. And laughter. Put all of these together and you have how I spent last weekend in a nutshell.

Jimmy, my brother-in-law, sister, and I went camping at the Kinzua East KOA from Thursday to Saturday and it truly was good for my soul. I had spent over a month without a day off of pet sitting and I was beginning to feel burned out and way too busy.

We booked a cute little cabin and spent our time talking around a campfire, cooking, visiting the Kinzua Dam, hiking, boating, and fishing. We also walked on the Kinzua Sky Walk, which is a bridge that partially collapsed in 2003 due to a tornado. You can read more about it here, because whatever I say won’t do it any justice. It was so neat!

Okay, now for some pictures!

Current drink I’m pretty sure the answer to this will always be coffee!

Current need Time with my family. I think we need to have a summer cookout soon.

Current procrastination Posting about mine and Jimmy’s closet room renovation. We pretty much finished it up months ago, but I’ve just been too lazy to post about it, I guess?! I’m motivated to do it soon, though!

Staining hardwood floor

Current confession Jimmy sent me a meme the other day that said “I don’t always lose things, but when I do it’s because my wife moved it” and I have to say that is pretty accurate for us.

Current food Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies Cereal. I am off my Puffins kick and onto cocoa bunnies now! I even got Jimmy hooked on these, haha.
