Today’s the day! At last! We’ve packed our stuff. And checked our lists. And eaten all the food in the refrigerator. Now just pack the car and we are gone. As you can see from the picture, I am a very organized person. I have a folder full of lists, lists for going to Utah, lists for going back to California, lists for vacations, probably I need a list for lists. Some important things on the list this time include my tea, a waterboiler for my tea, sheets and pillowcases in case I can’t stand the sheets in the hotels, mugs (because who likes drinking out of styrofoam) and on and on. Yeah, I’m a little anal but it keeps me calmer and I don’t forget stuff.
Goodbye fish! We have several fish in the pond behind our house in Utah. The solid pinkish white one is Edgar and the large multi-colored one is Chauncy. When we are in St. George we feed them each afternoon. They are little piggies hanging about our portion of the pond from about noon on hoping that we’ll come out and feed them. We’ve been through quite a lot of fish in the past 4 years, heron and kingfishers take their toll. So it’s always sad to leave them because who knows how many will be left when we get back. Edgar and Chauncy have been a constant. I think they are too big to eat.
So goodbye fish! Take care. Watch the sky.
