I'm finally done with the big work stint (not done working mind you but done working extra shifts). As such I'm feeling creative again. My mind is running a million miles an hour and there are so many things I want to do ... make more shirred scarves (see above), sew an apron and pajama pants, put together some I spy bags, bake scones, embroider, knit and, of course, photograph.
There's only one problem (well really two). You see we're getting ready for a road trip and this house, this poor poor house, needs tending to. Before any trip we go on a whirlwind cleaning tour. First off I don't want the folks caring for our house to run away in fear. Second -- no one likes returning to disaster. So today has been spent scrubbing toilets, cleaning mirrors, doing dishes and laundry and, finally, tackling that forlorn kitchen floor.
This year's vacation is humble -- we're camping out. The five of us tucked away in the wilderness; no television, no telephone, no internet. We're bring books and crosswords and jacks, knitting and embroidery, hiking boots and cameras, fishing poles and swimsuits and, of course, mosquito spray. It should be lovely -- that is once we're packed and on the road. As such I'd best get back to my chores. I can't wait to show you my vacation pictures! See you in a few.
