I don’t ever recall posting so much about packing in previous years! I suppose I could go back and research but it’s not important. My FitBit surprised me today. Nearly 5 miles. And here I thought I was lazing on the couch or bed most of the day. I forgot about the walk to donation the bag of stuff.
You might recall I mentioned going out while it was sunny? Yeah, that didn’t work out too well. By the time I made it outside, the wind was coming up and trickles of rain were coming down. And by a block into the journey, it turned into a full downpour and hail storm.
Still. I am in Paris. Paris rain and hail is wonderful.
But, of course, I had my tiny little traveling umbrella. Almost lost it to the wind a couple times but I hung on.
Sitting in my apartment, I looked over at a shelf. Empty. It normally held things, important things, that I put there with great regularity so as to not lose them. The things, whatever they are, are packed. Somewhere. I guess I will rediscover them in Sacramento. It will feel like a party with unexpected presents!
I finished my Magical series. Now I am searching for things to read on the 12 hour flight to SF, 3 hour layover and 1 hour flight to Sac. I have the 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared on hold. It’s by the author of the Girl that saved the king of Sweden. And in between I am rereading Mr Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore. I read it years ago. Heard the author at a Cap Radio event. Loved it. Recommended it. And when I was asked what it was about, I had no clue. Just knew I loved it. Figured I should give it a reread.
Yes, I know that it is no longer the style to underline book titles. I don’t know what is the correct style, so I am just going to be old-fashioned.
Just polished my shoes before packing the shoe polish for the next stay. I have to avoid Parisian gardens until I leave or my black shoes will turn grey once again.
And now to binge a couple episodes of Grey’s Anatomy with maybe a Breaking Bad to spice things up. And rest up for tomorrow’s big residence changing event.
