Will I Ever Learn?
I live so far away from anywhere that when I make a trip I tend to cobble on one more thing, then one more, and.....
(If you want to know exactly how far away from anywhere I live, check out Prince George BC Canada on Google Maps, etc.)
This is what my lr looks like in the midst of beginning to pack. Clockwise from the left - my attache case for the plane trip. Behind that my roll aboard, ditto. The grey bag beside those is my usual overnight case when I'm driving somewhere. Beside that my 'big' suitcase with the stuff for Texas starting to go in. At 12 o'clock (do young people still understand the orientation of 'clockwise'?) my handwork bin with a stack of tea towels for demo-ing at the fair and hand work for my 'off' days. On the chair, my flight ticket, directions for the first two stops of my drive, US currency, cd with Power Point presentation for Seattle and miscellaneous stuff. Beside the suitcase to the right is a plastic bin being returned to my hostess with jam jars (hoping for a refill of her home made raspberry jam - one of Doug's favourites!) Plus their hostess gifts and more Texas workshop stuff.
Notice the one glaring thing missing as of yet. My clothing and personal effects.
One of these days I will stop adding more events onto an existing trip, just because I'm passing by. Maybe.
