Welcome to Camp Barakel! Enjoy your weekend!

So, in the interest of full discloser...I stink at this writing thing!

I have tried to come up with something clever, witty and all together unique for this post...something that would give you a taste of what a weekend here in the winter is like. A post full of wonderful photos, showing the fun you would have tubing or ice skating. It would tell you all about the broom ball tournaments, the trading post, the "coco stations in remote locations". It would talk about how great chapels are, and you would almost be able to smell the wood fireplaces as you read. It would be a post that would make you say, "Wow, let me call Connie Harris right now and see if there are spots available for next weekend!"

But, alas, nothing came out but cheesy, dorky sounding words. Was it because I was trying to write and make lunch? I was trying to buy airline tickets at the same time. I guess it could have been the screaming, teething, 10 month old demanding my attention every time he realized I wasn't playing Legos with him? I don't know. I just know it didn't work. And I know you can't smell any lovely, warm, cheery,fireplace right now.

Oh well...maybe next time I will craft something worth reading...



  1. Yeah, maybe I don't feel the cozy fireplace... but random cocoa stations?!!!! Are you kidding me? I'm gonna go find everyone when I come (provided there's still mass amounts of snow).... I guess I'm convinced I AM Lucy. Hope all is well.

  2. i think this was a better post than if you had tried! haha! and i can relate to the screaming child demanding your attention. remember the 6 week old cries? that's what i'm going through this week.


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
