My patronus is an owl. I see wisdom as my guardian. Owls can be mysterious and aloof, but also quite determined when they want to be. That's a lot like me!

Camp Games Week #1

Part 1: "What's in your trunk?"

My truck was so full I had to extend it magically just to make everything fit! I mean, you never know what to expect at summer camp, so I brought several different kinds of sandals and swimsuits, a bunch of books, and of course my entire knitting stash. Here are just a few random things I brought:

Orlando Hoo the owl
orange zephyr tea
organic cotton yarn
oil for sunbathing
oven mitts
Oreo cookies
othello (the game)
octopus treats
origami paper

Part 2: Wingo! - Wizard Bingo

Part 3: Get to know your Spoiler & Spoilee

My spoiler, Arriana Stylos, has a bunch of wonderful projects, including a chic tilted duster. My spoilee, Rowena Bladvak, is clearly very skilled with socks, as she's made several pairs of monkeys! This pair is my favorite.

Summer Camp Begins

Summer Camp has officially begun...and I totally overslept the wake-up call. Good thing we have this kitchen in here. I just whipped up some pancakes with blueberries and then ran down to the lake. No one even noticed I was missing!

My campers are still getting settled in. It's so fun being a counselor! I'm looking forward to all the games and late-night chats and of course a few pranks. I'm already planning a couple...

The first of the summer games is beginning today. I hope our cabin gets a few points for glory!
