Leaving tomorrow for a mini break
It’s only a four day break but getting out of town is always a good idea and San Francisco is an even better idea.
So I’ve washed my brushes up from today and cleaned the house for my house sitter friend, talked to the cats and told them to behave, and I’m getting ready to pack.
C went to scour the thrift stores for the beginning of her Halloween costume. She wants to be Daenerys Targaryen. Last year she was the black swan and rocked it. She found this cute sari dress all embroidered so beautifully with golden thread and beads. She’ll have to take it in a little, but, with a long blond wig, I think she’ll look great.
Mom bought a spaghetti squash and brought it to me. I’m not sure what to do with it actually, and so will leave it in the potato basket until I get back. (Suggestions much appreciated 🙂 )
Now here’s a little dilemma: I’ve reread Graceling and now am rereading Fire. I’m halfway thru and enjoying it just as much as I did some years ago, but now I’m not sure if I should take it with me or take something disposable.
You know what I mean by disposable? I mean one of those silly kinds of weekend books which you can happily leave at the hotel for someone else.
The only thing is I’m really enjoying the Cashore book, but also like it being part of my permanent library at home.
Hmmm. The other option is to buy a Vanity Fair magazine. I like bringing that on planes, especially x the Atlantic, and don’t feel badly about leaving it on the plane.
Hmmm… It’s a short flight, only 2.5 hours or so. What do you all do?
I think I’ll take Fire.
One more look at the future Daenerys Targaryen. 🙂
