Just got home from a trip to the grandparents and found the most lovely postcard from my friends @britannia_peterle in the mail. Thank you guys so much. It lifted my mood after I realized that I have missed all tge camp fun at #camphooplahooray2017giveaway . 😇🐻
As many of you have to endure some high temperatures at home, I thought I might share our recipe for home lemonade.
It's a super easy method. We only call it the quick-n-dirty method. .
You might at first be a bit sceptical - just like we were - when you read, that you use the whole lemon. If you not only like the lemony freshness, but also the slight tartness of bitter lemon, then this lemonade is for you, as it utilises the essential oils in the skin.
- 1 lemon
- 2 liters (4 cups) water
- sugar or sweetener to taste
- Cut lemon into wedges (if yours has many seeds, discard them)
- Mix wedges with a bit of water in a blender to an even pulp (I let mine run for a minute)
- Put sieve over a bowl, pour pulp into sieve and let it strain by itself
- You can get any excess fluid from the pulp only by shaking (when I do a flipping motion at the end, the pulp has become a kind of coherent mass, that you can easily discard from the sieve)
- Mix the lemon juice with the remaining water, sweeten and chill
Maybe you can take home this recipe from #camphooplahooray2017 , as we all are heading home. Maybe the kitchen of the camp is still open, for #camphooplahooray2017giveaway in the food category #campHLHRfood2017 @gnme_rudy_jennie
Au revoir! Goodbye! Adios 👋🏼 We are tired but our heart is full. We miss our plushie-turned-real-doggy Rudy 😉🤣but we will soon miss you all too. #camphooplahooray2017giveaway was abuzz with fun thanks to you all. Thank you especially for all the yummy #camphlhrfood2017 posts. We love you all! 💚Jennie *************************************************P.S. We apologize if we have not quite seen and commented on all your photos, but rest assured we eventually will get to all of it. We also apologize to our friends who were not at camp this week. We have had very little time to catch up and have likely missed a lot of special events. We almost missed our friend @bupermanbaltazar 's name day yesterday 😱😱😱 How does Hope @honeygrovebears do it EVERY SINGLE WEEK? She says she spends 5 hours/day to catch up to everyone sometimes 😳😳😳 She is so awesome is she not? Thanks Hope. We're sure you'd have camp open longer if it was easier. Bye co-counsellors 😭😭😭😭😭 we'll miss you all too!
Our time at camp has ended,
It truly has been splendid.
We've met friends new & old,
Sports were played, stories told.
We've enjoyed crafts & nature,
And somehow avoided danger!
There's been talent & food too,
Something for us all to do.
Much fun we had the last few days
And now we go our separate ways
But with the magic of plushieland,
Everyplushie is always at hand.
If you're not feeling right,
We'll send healing light.
If you're in a jam,
Come help you we can
(We have magic cars, boats & bikes,
even a spaceship and trikes).
And if you're having a partay,
Just try and keep us away!
So thanks for the fun,
For the laughter and sun.
Our memories of camphooplahooray,
Forever with us will stay.
You are all what makes it so great,
To meet up again, we cannot wait!
Have safe magical journeys home,
And remember, you're never alone.

Goodnight, plushies. This year's camp was amazing, and I am honored I got to be a part of it. For our last night, I'm reading some sweet bedtime stories, so that every plushie goes home with a smile of their face.
Now that you've had a chance to relax with a cocktail (we also have cokes in the bottle if you prefer), Chefs Lois and Colin would like to invite you to join them for some Taco Salad. It is #tacotuesday after all! Dig in campers!
Chopped Romaine Lettuce
Chopped Kale, massaged until relaxed
Black Olives (we like them whole)
Shredded Cheese (we used vegan)
Vegan Fiesta Beef Crumbles
Toss it all together and enjoy with dressing of your choice! We have Thrive Sauce (It's a spicy creamy sauce) and salsas!
🐻 DAY 5 AT CAMP #camphooplahooray2017giveaway . We had an amazing and plushiefulous time glamping. I hope you have enjoyed camping with us at our camp site. Hopefully we will meet again next year. It will take us about 10 hours to sail along the magical Plushie River to our Apartment 😂😂😂 Love you all 💕💕💕💕💕💕 @honeygrovebears
Once upon a time, there was a plushie dog who did not know he was not a real doggy. He got so upset because no one could hear him bark it seems. And why can he not go for walks like the other doggies?
One day, he met a plushie hippo who told him he was a plushie, that's why. They became great friends and did everything together. Then one day, the plushie hippo who liked to do stunts with her human fell on the grass in the path of a lawnmower 😱😱😱😱 The plushie doggy, who has since learned that real dogs prayed to their ancestral wolf gods, wished and wished upon them that he can run like a real dog so he can rescue his friend.
The wolf gods heard his plea, and turned him into a moving plushie. He ran to rescue the hippo, but in doing so had himself hurt. His stuffing flew all over the place!!!!!! The little hippo and the human cried over him and put all his shredded parts in a little box.
The following morning, they found the box open, and the room in a little disarray. Then from the doorway, they heard a cute barking. And there was their plushie dog friend. The wolf gods turned him to a real dog because of his good heart.
Can you guess who this doggy is? Nope, not Rudy. Our boy came from the shelter 😂😂😂 #camphlhrstories2017#camphooplahooray2017giveaway#goodnight#lastnighttogether#plushies#plushiesofinstagram
