Summer Camp – October 2008
What I crave is a summer camp for slightly over-the-hill,
down-to-earth mothers who need some adult conversationand a dollop of peace and quiet.
A little sleep wouldn’t hurt either. A couple of good books and some uninterrupted writing would be nirvana.
I dream of lake or ocean views
or perhaps a babbling mountain stream; a little screened porch to enjoy the crisp night air, and a gathering room for girl talk and unabashed laughter, with long conversations
that do not revolve around child rearing, crafts, or cooking.
Speaking of food, nothing fancy,
just home cooked by someone other than me,
served with a smile, and cleaned up afterward.
Particular expertise in agriculture, health, childhood learning issues and special needs,
food safety, environmental science, and healthy home construction.
Personal experience with
construction of two healthy homes.
Created and taught the online course,
Creating Healthier Homes,
Thompson Learning/Education to Go
Published in 2005: Retail Florist Manual,
a practical guide
to operating a retail florist business.
