About 36 hours to go before we leave for Galveston. This is about the time I start getting a little anxious and have to tell myself that all necessary things will be done by the time we need to leave. I don't really have to weed every garden before I leave, I'm only going to be gone 6 or 7 days. I don't really have to vacuum before I go because I'll have to vacuum when I get home anyway. I don't really have to wash the car, we cleaned out the inside which is what matters.
Daisy is already packed - she's such a go-getter! We are only bringing a few snacks - healthy ones. We'll stop and eat cheese & crackers and maybe an apple for lunch - so much easier than going to one of the fast food places and feeling lousy for hours after. The food is ready - just needs to be put into the cooler.
As for clothing - what does one pack for Texas? I have been there a few times for work but then we were inside air conditioned building pretty much the whole time. I bought a new swim suit - it's been at least 10 years since I've had on. Whether or not I'm daring enough to put it on and get my feet wet in the ocean remains to be seen.
And then there is the knitting. I'm working on a baby blanket but that might be too tedious so I'll have to pack a second project to switch off. I have an eReader filled with books so I'm good there. And of course, the computer. We don't have smart phones so I need to connect at least once a day - it's a good thing to do at the end of the day.
I hope to take lots of photos and I hope we don't run into any bad weather or earthquakes going through Kansas and Oklahoma - the news hasn't been good lately. Tomorrow is set aside for gathering everything together, tonight I think I'll just enjoy my evening.
