We have recently returned from a long weekend trip to on the North Shore of Lake Superior at our annual destination campground family reunion.  We experienced comfortably cool weather and had a great time connecting with extended family during our last "glamping" trip on our camping travel trailer.   Recently, we decided that we are putting our camper up for sale while it is still in excellent condition. (Help us spread the word if you know of someone who may be interested!!)  

It served us well for our trips to Michigan and, most recently to the Dakotas. But now we have our sights instead on our goal of constructing and finishing a sauna building at our homestead.   This has been something that we have visioned for a while and that we have recently started on.   Check back for updates on the progress of this functional and creative project!

I am navigating a rich and abundant early August garden.   Upon our return from our trip to the North Shore, our large garden was a bit overwhelming to say the least!   

Weeds!  Cucumbers!  Tipping tomatoes!  Overgrowing pumpkin plants! 

That and the arrival of 2 cases of peaches (a nordic ski team fundraiser) led me to spend many hours both tending the garden in canning and preserving in my kitchen.

I did my best to focus on the positive and dove in and tamed the garden, harvested herbs, tomatoes, kale, beets, cucumbers, then dried and preserved what we didn't eat fresh.
