walktoclarke
oh it's all so familiar.
walking the gravel to get my breakfast
working hard and actually needing a nap
fresh baked sweets on every counter (cookies, coffee cake, granola, cinnamon raisin bread..)
hanging out with the kitchen girls
telling each other, 'do not let me eat another dessert today!'
living all together
eating cereal in the back booths
sitting on the couches in the lounge (our most favorite spot)
sharing the bathroom
staggering shower times
smelling the cinnamon granola smell
playing games with scrabble tiles
running 'the section'
wearing an apron
cleaning brygger bathrooms
playing the piano in the empty dining hall
no tv. mostly books, laptops, and conversation
hugging grant when he comes in for lunch and supper
well, we spent our first week getting the place cleaned, polished, mowed, and weed-whacked. we had our annual visit from the health inspector and did the wash every dish in the kitchen project and all lists have been crossed off. let the campers come! our first camp arrived yesterday, and today is our first full day.. cooking for 120 begins at 7:00 am! by the time you read this, i may already be in the throes. wish us luck!

The place looks AMAZING! If it wasn't so far away I would have signed up a camper or two myself. Good luck!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
