A tiny camping microholiday

cute camping couple

It's been a while, hasn't it. A lot has happened since I last blogged over here. I've started a new writing project, Daily Playwright where I (you guessed it) write a play every single day. The plays are very short, don't worry. I've also handed in my notice at work - my last day is in five weeks. Everything is exciting and there's a lot of adventuring on the horizon for me. But for now, I'm just going to share a few pictures from a little tiny holiday that Dan and I went on a few weeks ago.

It was just an overnight camping trip but it was probably the most relaxing 24 hours I've had in a very long time. Work has been manic and I've been writing a play every single evening. Everything has been go go go all year, and frankly, I can't believe it's July already. I took a long break from blogging because I was disillusioned with the constant networking and commercialism. Those are huge aspects of the blogging world and I respect them wholeheartedly, but I don't know if I am able to participate on that level. As a result, I ran away and avoided blogging for a really long time. I haven't looked at my blog email in forever and I am so so sorry if you've emailed me and nor received a response. But I'm ready to dip a tentative toe back into the blogosphere and blog on my own terms again. And I'll get to your emails, I promise! ;)

Now that we have a tent, we're going to do a lot more camping. It's so lovely to listen to the birds in the morning and feel the grass between your toes. Plus, once you've got the kit, camping is pretty cheap. This next year is going to be an incredibly frugal one for us as I will be doing a masters and Dan will be finishing his PhD. So expect more little camping adventures on this 'ere bloggeroo.

  4. Welcome back! Writing a play everyday is an amazing project. That must've required so much work! Best of luck with the Masters :) Oh and this looks like such a lovely little camping.

  5. Sorry you've been disillusioned with blogging - I hope that you manage to find your feet again. I'm not clever enough to do all the stuff one is supposed to do for a blog, but I just wander along by myself and it's still fun :)

    Such a good tent! I love camping, haven't been this year and you've made me miss it!

  6. Eek, I've missed your writing and photos so much Candy! Take your time settling back into blogging - it's so easy to forget that it should be for fun. Congratulations on the decision to do a masters - I'm going to be reprising the examined, library-heavy existence too, it seems. You guys look like you had a brilliant time camping and I love Dan's t-shirt - a cheeky QC reference? xx

  9. FAITH ALONE? BY STEVE FINNELL
    Does God teach that men are saved by faith alone? Does being saved by faith mean that men do not have to obey God's requirements for salvation? No, it does not. There is no Scripture that states that under the new covenant men will be saved by "faith alone". God requires obedience to His requirements for salvation.

    REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION
    1. Faith: John 3:16, Galatians 3:26-27, John 8:24, Mark 16:16
    2. Repentance: Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19, Luke 24:47
    3. Confession: Romans 10:9, Acts 8:35-38
    4. Immersion in water: Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, Ephesians 5:25-27, 1 Peter 3:21, Colossians 2:12-13, Galatians 3:26-27, Romans 3:3-7

    Faith is in effect only after obedience.
    1. Naaman's leprosy was cured only after obedience. (2 Kings 5:1-13). Naaman's leprosy was not cured by "faith only".

    2. The passover happened only after obedience. (Exodus 12:1-13). The first born were not saved from death by "faith only".

    3. The people of Israel were not saved from death by serpents by "faith only". They needed to obey God's command. (Numbers 21:6-9).

    4. Noah and his family were not saved by "faith only". They were saved after Noah obeyed God and built the ark.(Genesis 6:7-22, 1 Peter 3:20)

    There is not one verse of Scripture where God say believers in Jesus will be saved by "faith only". There is not one verse that says water baptism is not essential in order to be saved.

    It takes a master of deceit to convince men that immersion in water [that being baptism] is not a requirement for salvation.

    God requires obedience to His terms for pardon.

  10. As a tyke you likely acquired a handle or two. On the off chance that you'll consider how you felt when called an epithet, for example, nectar, slugger or by the name of your most loved super legend you soon understand the hidden force of a handle. Read More...
