These last few months have been a little stressful around here, and I fell off the face of the blogosphere. Now that I have been given a clean bill of health (big exhale and “YAHOOO” right here!), I can devote a little more headspace to the blog again. Plus, lately I have simply been pining to be outside with our weather. I have started planning trips for this summer, and plan to spend a lot of time camping. I can’t wait! I will have lots to share, and the ‘info gathering’ is going to be the best part! I am hoping to check out lots of new campgrounds, both in Oregon, and at a couple of our National Parks. I am also hoping to get to a couple of gatherings too (that is what we call it when a bunch of teardrops camp together, kind of like a gaggle of geese!).
Until then, I thought I would share another favorite with you. I use this both at home and while camping. My Bucky Eye Shades is one of my ‘can’t leave home without it’ items. I am a person who is up with the sun, and if I can’t delay daylight a little bit, my days tend to be really long. The eye shades are really comfortable for my face and block out all light. They also come with a little pocket that holds ear plugs, which can be really handy (and they don’t get lost!).
They come in several colors and Bucky has some other styles now too, which I haven’t tried (they look great too). When I left my Bucky Eye Shade on one of my flights last summer, I couldn’t wait to get a new pair (didn’t realize how much I loved them until I lost them!). I highly recommend Bucky’s Eye Shades, especially if you want to sleep a little later in the morning! Now, if I could figure out how to install a snooze button on the 5-year-old!
Oh, and one last thing – back in November we did a long weekend in Astoria, Oregon. We were not camping, but had been sent over with Trekaroo and we did a lot of exploring. I had my eyes peeled for places I wanted to camp, and I found some places we will be checking out, for sure! My blog post went live this January, and you can read it here.
More soon! I promise!
