Cabins Rock!

Sssshhh, here's a secret -- I'm not really into "camping". I hate the idea of sleeping with the bugs, getting eaten by a bear, being cold ..... THANK YOU for placing us in CABINS!

I love how our cabin has a temperature spell on it so it's comfortable for everyone, with lots of charms to ward off bugs and any other predators!!

Activity: 3 Truths, 1 Lie

Our first assignment! Woo-hoo!! Listed below are three truths and one lie about the person (Shawnee) behind the HP character (Lavender O):

1. Helped purchase the first GPS for the US military.
2. Co-authored a cookbook for the freezer.
3. Cried on national television during filming of a documentary.
4. Taught my husband how to cook.

Leave your comments below as to which is the lie. =)

Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap 8 - SUMMER CAMP 09

I'm so excited to report that I'm headed to my very FIRST sleep-over camp, and will make lots of Hogwarts friends, too!! I've special requested a lower bunk near the WC and I really hope I'm not a noisy sleeper.

I'm also crossing fingers that there are some crocheters to share patterns with, but I can't wait to see what all the creative knitters come up with, too!!
