The topic for this week's Ten on Tuesday. . . Ten Things to Bring on a Camping Trip. Uh-oh. I don't DO camping. The last time I "camped" was in 1983. Too much work. Too much hassle.
But. I do have a cottage "up north." It's like camping. Only civilized. At my cottage, I have electricity, plumbing, beds with sheets, a real oven, a refrigerator, a shower, TV with DVD (but no cable and no internet), and a washer and dryer. It's not "roughing it." Shoot, I have crystal wine glasses in my cabinets and Mr. Rick's cousin (The Storm Trooper) in the closet under the stairs. So, no roughing it. Not even close. But it's as close to camping as I'll ever get!
So . . . what do I make sure to have on hand. . . up at my cottage?
- Knitting -- and plenty of it!
- Books and magazines
- My iPod
- A comfy sweatshirt
- Brownies (it's a family cottage tradition!)
- Beach towels
- Cozy afghans for long naps
