YAY for Yard Clean-Up, BBQs and Family!!!!
April 29, 2009
It's almost midnight and Jonathan, my cousin Joe and I are sitting in the trailer relaxing our tired muscles. Joe says "I'm not tired". We spent the evening transforming the grounds here at All Tribes Christian Camp...the place looks great!!!! The transformation began when my parents, Bernie and Janine Nadjiwon came this afternoon. My mom and I spent hours and hours washing, sanitizing and drying all of the dishes in the Lodge kitchen. Pam, if you are reading this we made a "Pam Cupboard" today. All of the dishes that were smaller than the ones that would feed an army we put in the Pam Cupboard....some good little frying pans, etc!!! My dad spent time on his tractor, digging out stumps, moving the ol' dishwasher, getting the lawnmowers going, racing Jonathan on the lawn mowers and hauling mattresses. At 6:30 we had a big Bar-B-Q with my parents, Jonathan's parents and his sister Ruthie and my brother and his girlfriend Jessica. Jonathan made monsterous burgers and we ate a big feast before getting to work. At this exact moment we are discussing the greatness of cold brown beans out of a can. Perhaps anyone who comments on this could weigh in. Do you like cold brown beans with a great potatoe or macaroni salad? It seams that it is a Hawdon delicacy (or as Jonathan says "a Hawdon oditty"). Back to our day.....once we were done feasting we got right to work. The whole crew of 9 grabbed rakes and went to war with the leaves! Later my brother Phil, his wife Dee and their little girl....my precious niece Darcie joined us as did Joe. The whole camp was a buzz with little worker bees. Mom, Dad, Harold, Martha, Ruthie, Dee and I raked while Mike and Jess went around with the lawn mower and trailer and picked up branches. Phil, Joe and Jonthan burned around on the Wild Cat picking up the leaf piles. It was quite a night. When it got dark we came in for ice-cream. Another question....chocolate, cookies and cream or both? I'm trying to get more comments on my Blog than Jonathan has on his. Right now he is winnning. We are not competitive at all. Well, it's officially midnight. Time for bed. Pam, don't worry there is still plenty of yard work to be done and I'm really excited about setting up for the Yard Sale with you. Good night all!
