What an Empty Nester SLP Does in the Summer

The Frenzied SLPs are taking somewhat of a hiatus during the summer. Each of us is taking one day to share how we spend our summers. Today it's my turn:
My boys are grown, and my husband doesn't have the luxury of having the summer off, so I have a lot of time to myself. I spend a lot of mornings on the back porch (right picture); especially early mornings. I get a cup of coffee, grab the daily Mass readings, and head out for some time with the birds. It's the most peaceful time of day, and it's not sweltering...at least most mornings it isn't. I'm also out there some evenings reading (see lower left picture), if the humidity isn't too high. 
When my husband does get time off, we hook up the trailer (I call it my "glorified tent") and enjoy some "us" time. Last summer, we went to the Outer Banks...in July. NOT the time to go to camp, y'all! Thankfully we had a huge motorhome next to us that provided us with excellent shade.
Are you a camper? If you camp, what kind of camping do you do? Tent? RV? or, like our oldest son, under the stars with a hammock?

  1. We used to have a boat we used for waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing. We would go to lakes and sometimes camp out in tents, because we had to tow the boat behind our truck or Suburban (no motorhome). My kids are in their 20's now, and we sold the boat 2 years ago, but I miss it.
