We are ready….

….and very excited for our flight in the morning.

We have been crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s and it looks like we are ready to fly off.  Gosh I even had my first manicure and pedicure in 15 years and it was a wonderful experience and I feel very pampered.  Maybe I will make it a just a before we go away thing.

Colin joined me today at my hairdressers.

So happy to be back with my regular lady.  My hair colour is what it should be, not to mention the cut.

We had a bit of drama last evening when this wee one hit the window. Colin picked it up and set it in a plant pot and it did eventually fly away.

The other bit of drama is that I couldn’t find the battery charger for my new camera.  I was looking everywhere and was getting upset when Colin finally just took the charger out of my hand, what I thought was the old one, and the battery and easily put them together  😯  In my rush, I had neglected to notice that I had flipped the battery which is why it did not fit 🙄

Here we are leaving and I have an early tomato growing in one of my pots.

Earlier this afternoon we moved the tomato plants and one cucumber plant over to a friends house and she will water them for us.  When we get back we will then replant them in our garden.  The turtle pot holds my portulaca blooms.  I plan to repaint those faded colors on my Mexican turtle pot when I get back.  You should see my to do list for when we return:)

Late last evening but before dusk as we were having dinner, we had company.  Two geese came over from the site to our right and started walking towards our grass area.  They stopped in their tracks once they spotted Charlie and ever so quickly bounded down the rocks to the lake.  Hopefully Charlie will continue to keep them off our patio.

So the suitcases are mostly packed.  We won’t close them until the morning.  I tried the rolling thing and also using cubes.  Problem was that I couldn’t close my suitcase.  So I only used the one large cube and stuffed small things into corners and tried to gently fold my cotton and rayon pieces on top.  It is going to be very hot as in 93F in some areas and I need to have cooler clothing.  I have the small carry on size piece of luggage and Colin has the next size up.  So I transferred a few things to his 3/4 full piece of luggage.  We will see how it goes.  My largest items are shoes.  I have six pair in addition to the pair I am wearing onto the plane. My feet do get sore with extensive walking and I need to wear two to three pair within a day, which means wearing one pair and carrying another with us as we sightsee.  We are checking both suitcases and each have a personal item plus the Guitalelei in a carryon bag.  Colin doesn’t want to be six weeks without a guitar.

Colin decided to store the Jeep in the storage lot, in front of the RV.  He left the Jeep car cover in Mexico and doesn’t not want bird poop sitting on the paint for six weeks.  There are fewer birds in the storage area.

Colin covered my car and put the golf cart on the driveway so that others will not use it for guest parking.

Time for my bath and our final non restaurant meal ( 😛 ) in six weeks.  See you at the airport in the morning 😆
