Getting Ready

I'm trying to get moving so things will be done when I leave. I had a horrible thought last week, when getting ready to go to daughter's, that I wouldn't have enough capris/trousers to take with me to England or shirts so today I went through my wardrobe and pulled things out and tried them on. I hate shopping for bottoms especially as they are either too short, the hips are too tight or the waist is too big. I had prepared myself to do some (horrible) last minute shopping, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have enough to take with me for the trip! I shall probably have to whittle down the pile as I probably won't need them all. I shall take more tops as I can be a little clumsy and don't want to be doing washing all the time. Mum has a washer but no dryer so things have to be put out on the washing line weather permitting.

I also got up in my craft room and did some sorting. There are a couple of small projects I'll be taking with me so that I have something to do in the evenings. I won't take too much as it is all extra weight and I'd probably end up not doing it. I also took care of some of the things I hadn't got around to putting away yet. I'm hoping to leave things at least a little organised while I'm gone.

I did take a walk in the morning. I saw a mother and two fawn down by the lake. They were all so cute. I did take a picture but - story of my life - I haven't sorted them yet. I also had a hair appointment.  Tomorrow there are a couple more projects on my list and son will be coming up to eat with us and say goodbye to me. We keep in touch via Facebook Messenger while I'm gone so it's not like I'll be totally out of communication.

Today's photo. This is one I took while we were on our camping trip up north. I really enjoyed waking up in the morning to see the sunrise with the slight mist over The Lake of the Clouds. It was such a beautiful sight.


  1. That's a gorgeous photo!
    Congratulations with the clothes. It's amazing what a good sort out will uncover, isn't it?

  2. That is a beautiful picture!

    I'm glad you found enough clothes in your closet to take with you! You must be all excited to be going on this visit to see your Mum. Hope you have a great holiday.

  3. Have a lovely holiday and take plenty of photos.

  4. I hate to go retail shopping too. Thrifting yes...teehee! I had to buy a dress for a recent wedding so I was forced to go into Kohl's - when you buy stuff they give you "Kohl's Cash" to redeem in your next, we went back the next week. That's the most shopping at a regular store I've done all year! One can NOT put into words how beautiful it is by Lake of the Clouds. I hope you post some pictures and such while on your visit! I would love to know about where you grew up. Have a wonderful time!

  5. What a beautiful photo, stunning. The sales seem to be on all over, so you could stock up on a few craft projects whilst you are over here.
