My Simple Woman’s Daybook Entry for September 7, 2010
Outside my window….beautiful sunshine, no humidity and perfect temperatures! I feel so energized – and excited! – when I step outside on mornings like these! Even the dog has a sassy strut during his “start of the day business” walk:)
I am thinking….about my big trip which starts this weekend – and all the little details I need to take care of before Saturday gets here. The little bits of post-it notes with all my reminders are beginning to add up and overlap one another. Soon, I will need notes to remember where the previous notes are?? Just a note to self here: Walgreens and Wachovia are not the same thing! Not that I would ever go to the bank to pick up a prescription….but those type of things can happen when your brain is on overload:)
I am thankful for….the opportunity to be able to go on this trip. It truly is a trip of a lifetime and Hubbie and I feel extremely blessed to even imagine ourselves doing this!
I am wearing….what??? on this trip – now that is the question! I have one suitcase…and my personal items (read that make-up), hair gear, SHOES:), a few books and my devotional things – and then I have to get to my clothes (enough clothes for 14 days)! I envision it being something like “how many different outfits can you create from six pieces of clothing???” I love a good challenge:)
I am remembering….to go get that prescription (for the patch!) that was not at the bank!!
I am going…on a cruise!! OK – there you have it! I could not drag out the suspense – or contain my excitment – any longer! Hubbie and I leave on Saturday for a 14 day cruise that begins in Copenhagen, Denmark and take us to seven different ports throughout Europe. We will be in Brussels… Amsterdam… Split, Croatia….Malta…two different ports in Spain…oh, and Paris!!
I am reading….weather.com trying to figure out what the weather will be like! Do I need to pack sweaters (or even jackets) too??
I am hoping…all goes well here at home while we are gone. Oh my.
On my mind….well, that is a bit obvious:)
From the kitchen…well, I received an email from Jordan the other day. I had asked him to let me know if he needed anything. He replied: please send a protein shake blender (um…ok), a pencil sharpener (check), and homemade cookies! So, what do you think is coming from my kitchen this week?? 🙂 Add bake, pack and ship cookies to Afghanistan to a new post-it note!
Around the house….lots of post-it notes:)
Plans for the week…..packing! I once heard this advice: pack for your trip…and then take out half of everything! No kidding. I will probably need to take out two-thirds!
One of my favorite things….Paris for your anniversary!!
