a "bug" and elk camp...

Seriously!?!!? When did it become the middle of October?!?
You know how you think since things have "slowed" down you will get caught up on all those projects threatening to over take your family.....?
Then you get some kind of "bug" where all you want to do is sit and stare or blog hop....hoping you will get that other "bug" to recreate so much of the inspiring DIY and fall decorating ideas...
Yeah, that is me...
Have so much to do.....
love this time of year.....
have some ideas....
but they involve sewing....
which can't bring myself to do.....
help....
.....sigh....
Anyway, I did end up making it to "Elk Camp" oh, goodie...
did I mention I used to LOVE camping??
Yes, that was about 10 years ago, childless and a little wilder days...
At least the kids enjoyed it...
here is a look at THE camp...
did I mention elk hunting is huge here....
not only do the changing leaves, crisper mornings, and wood smoke filled air mark the coming of fall.....
but come visit our little county and something is happening to the men...
I have never seen so many with beards....
I have yet to understand.....
It is an annual thing to grow a beard for the elk and deer hunts...??????
This is a view from the tent....
this is where all the cooking, camp fire building, and general BS happens
no we don't sleep in there....
what do you think we are crazy....
do you happen to know how many bears wonder the area....
remind me to tell you my encounter with a bear when I was little and trying to go to the bathroom.....one of the many reasons I seek therapy,,,,
Here Clancey and Ian are gathering fire wood....
Yes it was a little chilly, in all the excitement my "old soul" child forgot his coat....
him, not me....a mom can only do so much....

The following photo is a little teaser.....
not Clancey...
the coloring of the photo...
I have a new obsession and am redoing some areas in the house...
tomorrow will bring some photos and vintage goods that are inspiring me...
That is if I can get rid of the "bug".....
did I mention I need help.....
did I mention I seek therapy....
sigh....
;0)

You are a brave gal to do the camping thing. I used to camp when the kids were little but nowadays it's hotels for me. Looks like you had fun!

What a great post!! I've had that bug for a month now. I haven't wanted to do anything but peruse my favorite blogs and oooh and aaah over other peoples' creations. I haven't listed anything new in my Etsy shops since God knows when. I have lots of good intentions but no drive to bring them into fruition. I'm chalking it up to first trimester pregnancy. It is typical for me to not do anything that I just don't feel like doing. Does that make sense or am I the only woman that gets like that?

As for the beard thing, it's probably because lots of men hunt in your area and they like to keep their face warm for when they're outside. Honestly, that would make me happy because I love a man with a beard!! : ) Have a wonderful weekend.
