Yesterday was Mother’s Day. We celebrated it the whole weekend but more-so on Saturday. We decided to NOT have the usual great weekend we normally have but make it equally great, just different, by going to Peterborough. For shopping and looking.
I recently told my husband of my wishes to sell our tent trailer and buy something we can take to a seasonal campground and leave there. It would be more of a cottage for us. A place that our daughter and I can go when Daddy is working or a place that we can just pick up and go to when we want to just get away. Even in the winter.
So, on the way to and from Peterborough we looked for trailers for sale, we looked for campgrounds with seasonal sites and we talked about what would be the best of both to find. Once there we shopped at Costco and talked about how nice it would be to be closer, maybe a campground between our home and Costco, for easier access. We also had dinner at the Red Lobster, which would definitely be another perk of living closer to Peterborough.

And hushed me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
My Mother.” ~Ann Taylor
Well, we didn’t find a trailer or a campground but good times were had by all on Saturday. Sunday, we thought we would have a leisurely day of going to the gym and cleaning up our tent trailer to prepare to sell, but it ended up not to leisurely. I was inspired to put the ad on Kijiji early, just to get the views started on the site. Wow, what a response! Almost 100 views in about 8 hours. After about 4 hours we got an email, the family came to look, agreed to buy it and are coming today to pay. I think I’m still in shock that it went so quickly. Not to mention sad. This trailer was our first and we camped in it with my little dog, Candy, before she died and then again with our Lab when he was just a puppy. We camped in it just after I had a miscarriage and when I was pregnant with our daughter. It was our first time at Algonquin. It will definitely be missed!
Mother’s Day 2010 will certainly be memorable. It was the beginning of memories to come, of more camping and outdoor fun. It was memories of the end of a time, of the past of good times and sunshine.

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day. Full of love and memories. As always, feel free to share.
