Oh Happy Weekend Glamping Style

I'm always so excited for the weekends, aren't you? I'm excited because the house is quieter without all the hammers pounding in my brain, the bench saws running, and the guys coming in and out all day long. The smell of the paint fumes lessens dramatically as it dries and we get to spend a weekend together as a family trying to put our home back together, moving things back to their normal place, unpacking boxes and clearing more dust from the renovation storm that lingers over head.

Now that I have all my samples back from the photographer - it's been so much fun taking my own pics. Good ones - not the grainy phone snapshots taken at one o'clock in the morning the day I had to ship them out, with poor lighting on my living room floor! Tonight Sherbert and Pistachio (from my book Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love) are getting ready for their glamping weekend of fun with their trusty Traveler Companions, Happy the Trailer and Kitty the Wagon.

Without a kitchen I truly feel like I'm camping in a more glamorous way in my own home. It's amazing how creative one can get with a crock pot, microwave and toaster. It's equally amazing how much I miss my stove and oven. I'm so grateful to get my kitchen back in the next week or two. It will be a dream for sure. What should I make or bake first? Cookies? Brownies? What would you miss most, and make first?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
