Anticipation

made for walking

You practice-packed and repacked last week. You printed out and saved to your phone or e-pad all your travel information. Your passports and health screening is up-to-date.

Sadie – we’d take her if we could

You made sure your neighbors knew you’d be gone. You made arrangements for pets, gave loved ones your itinerary.

The refrigerator has been culled, the bread box is empty. The patio plants will survive on their own, you hope.

The time is here. Lift-off. Sail-away. Engine warmed-up. Doors closed. All those elements of a vacation’s beginning announce new steps in your journey. It’s a delicious feast of anticipation. What will the next adventure hold? Perhaps Norway, Sweden and Finland, and maybe some more.

    1. Thanks, Anita! I am missing an immersion heater right now, but really am happy I brought a little bit of home with my loose-leaf Earl Grey. Did you know I ought a Baggalini bag based on your recommendation (and adore it!!)? So, it looks like I will have to get that immersion coil and find a place for it in my suitcase. 😉
