Five Quick Things.

...on a travel Tuesday. As soon as I post this (and pack the car 😉), Holly and I are headed to Florida to visit my mom for a week.

1. I figured out where all the heat has gone. Here's the forecast where Mother lives. yikes, right?!! I made a quick trip to Loft yesterday and bought three sleeveless dresses - coolest things I could think to wear.

2. Glad we'll have blue skies for our drive.

3. I pulled out a long-time hibernating project yesterday to take as my "coffee time" knitting and was most pleasantly surprised to find I was further along on it than I remembered. (more on that soon.)

4. Gotta love Overdrive audio. I downloaded four books for the trip yesterday afternoon. fourteen hours in the car (seven each way) plus twice-daily walks with Holly equals lots of listening time.

5. Normally, I like to leave dark early for this drive, but since I-85 is still under repair I have to take a slightly different route - one that I'm not totally comfortable with and certainly not one I'd want to drive in the dark. So I had time this morning for all my usual things - a walk to the lake with Marc, pilates, journaling, and a quick walk with Holly. Feels nice to be grounded before we set out.
6:30 am
Next post from Florida! Happy Tuesday!!

  7. Those are my kind of temperatures, and I had wondered where our lovely spring warmth had disappeared to. : ) Enjoy your visit!

  8. Yikes! That's warm. I was just looking at some forecasts for Spain and they're a good 20-30 degrees warmer than what we've been averaging!! Have a great trip!
