What’s top of my mind: Packing for my trip away.
I’m leaving very early in the morning tomorrow and the only preparation I’m doing is to buy some groceries for breakfasts while I’m gone.
I have to say though; it’s a big difference from packing for 5 weeks’ carry-on luggage as opposed to having a whole car that I can fill up with stuff if I want to!
Where I’m going: Kangaroo Island.
Have I researched? Do I know what I’m going to do when I get there?
It’s weird how I’ll plan my overseas holidays so that I know where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing every single day, yet I’ll blithely jump in the car and head off without a single thought when it’s a domestic trip.
Where I’ve been: Southland with Mum and Kate.
I put my car in for a service yesterday, seeing as I was driving to another state, and spent a few hours hanging out with my family. Kate sees Mum and Dad every Tuesday, so I tagged along. It was nice.
What I’m reading: Nothing special.
I only read one book last week and it was a ho-hum “thriller” that I guessed the ending to when I was less than half-way in. This is the second time this has happened with this author so I won’t be wasting my time with her again.
What I’m watching: White Lotus.
I finished this last night and I really enjoyed it. Practically everyone in it is unlikeable but seeing as it was a limited series (unlike Succession!) I kept with it to see what ended up happening.
What I’m listening to: Dogs snoring and the dishwasher going.
What I’m eating: Breakfast.
Well, I haven’t had any yet, but I will be as soon as I finish this post.
What I’m planning: …
I think I’ve made it plain that I SHOULD be planning a lot more than I’m doing! Though I have done one thing today – I rang the place I’m going to because it occurred to me that it isn’t actually one of the rooms that belongs to my timeshare – it’s like a partnership deal.
I’m used to taking a box of groceries with me whenever I stay at a timeshare place because they always have kitchens. This time? No.
Thank goodness I found that out before I lugged a whole heap of food across from Adelaide!
Who deserves a thumbs-up: Me.
I’ve agreed to look after Kate’s new dog for 5 nights in March when they go to Sri Lanka. He’s a very big dog…
What has made me smile: picking the first tomatoes of the season.
Also the first strawberries, warm from the sun.
Dad joke of the day:
