I'm joining up for a quick one with Amy over at Love Made My Home for Five on Friday.
I'm off to Minnesota to visit my daughter tomorrow. I'll be flying. I had some frequent flyer miles and cashed them in for a flight that only cost $11! I never thought I'd use them. I thought they had expired. What a nice surprise it was!
Anyway today I'm packing, trying to work out what to take and what not to take. Clothes are a given. Bath bits are not - will use daughter's. So what am I going to pack in my non-clothes bag? What's 'essential' to me? Daughter will be working so I'll be at her place during the day.
Camera - I can't forget it this time! When we drove daughter out to Minnesota to move I forgot my camera! I packed the spare lens but not the camera! Eek. First time I've done that. I think I was more worried that she remember everything and when we left, at 3am, I just forgot it. Sigh.
My Kindle. I'm debating taking physical books - have to admit I still prefer them! - but space is limited so thinking of reading some of the masses of books I have on my kindle. This will also serve as my connection to the internet and Skype so I can still Skype Mum.
Stamped images to colour. These will be used to create cards. Daughter has lovely colouring pencils so I will be borrowing hers.
Two small kitted up cross stitch projects. I've been sorting things out and found some already kitted projects so two of them will be coming with me. Hopefully I'll make some progress on them.
Knitting - I started a new project! Not sure if I'm taking it with me or not. Usually I stuff anything I'm not sure of into my checked in case but I will not be checking any in and I'm not entirely sure of the whole knitting needle thing - some say they are allowed, others say can be confiscated. I really don't want to lose it!
What else do I need to keep me busy and creative? I'm really tempted by books and my laptop but both are heavy and take up space. Sigh. I have a few hours to debate about it!
I did finish a cross stitch project this week
Thanks for reading my Five. I'll be visiting throughout the day in between packing! If you get a chance and like scenery pictures check out my posts from last weekend. Lovely walk by a foggy lighthouse and ice covered beach!
