Hello friends and Happy Thursday. I’m delighted to be joining in with Carole and crew today to celebrate Friday Eve 😉 Missing my Wednesday post gave me room for this one and I’m reminded how much fun it can be to switch things up!
Things are feeling a little bit crazy in my world right now. Good crazy. but still. I leave for Bristol on Monday. My to-do list is full of things for women’s ministry (which – thanks to no blog post yesterday and very little knitting are now DONE!), getting stuff ready for Sara (nearly done – still need to order the air mattress*) and traveling myself (British pounds, cell phone plan – and NO I HAVEN’T PACKED YET**)
So – I’m sitting here on Thursday evening, looking back at the couple of photos I took today … and I think it’s fun to capture Right Now – especially because I have three photos.
My neighbor’s first grandchild – a little girl – was born last week. I knew it was a girl and I’d ordered the pink yarn months ago. But I didn’t start the dress until the baby was imminent. It’s a quick knit and I sewed the button on this morning. Standing in line at the post office felt like the longest part of the whole thing.
The weather forecast for Bristol is posing challenges for my brain – and my packing. Those Highs are lows for where I live right now (on a “good” day) and those lows. and that rain … well… I think it’s a very good thing I haven’t packed yet because I’d be taking out summery things and putting in fall things.
and yep – thinking I might just need to finish the Bon Voyage wrap I’d planned for “fall”
so I can take it with me. Note that I also took that weather forecast into account when I chose OPI’s Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ for today’s pedicure.
I must admit – I don’t hate embracing fall right now. I just wish I’d had the whole month of August to get ready!
Are you an Early Packer? or a Last Minute one (like me)?
*my mom asked about the air mattress and suggested maybe we really should consider a “blow up bed”. I told her that’s what an air mattress is. and she said an air mattress was the thin little thing we blew up with our own lungs to go under our sleeping bag in the tent. (yeah, I hate camping.) ok, it’s really a blow up bed. queen size. with freshly laundered sheets and new pillows.
**seriously y’all – TWO people asked me on Monday if I’d packed. I couldn’t even relate to the question. Of course I hadn’t packed. I wasn’t leaving for another WEEK! for one thing, I don’t have enough underwear to pack that far in advance. and for another thing … geez…
