I've Done it Again :(

I've known for a couple months today was D-Day - departure day.  We are heading to California to visit with my #1 bad boy (he will probably be more happy to see his 3 pumpkin rolls than to see me . . . lol) and his girlfriend.  After a few days with them, we will drive north stopping at the Hearst Castle and then proceeding to Napa Valley where DSO's son and fiancée live. 
Did I plan ahead?  I think you know the answer to that.  Yesterday after work I was doing laundry, ironing and packing.  For weeks I've had "plan wool applique to work on while flying" on my to-do list.  Did I?  No again.  Last night at 11:00 pm I was cutting wool pennies.  I did plan one small (very small) Maggie Bonanomi project.  Since I was running out of time pennies were a no brainer.  I will also be binding a rug on the trip out.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute :) 

Thankfully we have a late afternoon flight so this morning I can finish packing, do a little cleaning, etc.  I guess I will just never learn . . . sigh.
Not sure if you will hear from me until I return home.  I am challenged when it comes to doing a blog post on the iPad. 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Oh you will LOVE Hearst Castle. I would love to see it again as it was around 1980 when we visited it. Not that anything has changed but think I'd enjoy it more today. I know you'll have fun.

    BTW, I even purchased the app blog press from apple and even that looks weird and don't know how to use it. Shows nothing to me but the hieroglyphics and programming codes to me.

  2. Eh, don't worry about the blog for heaven sake. Just plan to have lots of fun and enjoy as much as you possibly can. Lucky you. Bring your camera...
    Take care and have a safe fun trip.
    Looking forward to your safe return.

  3. Have a safe trip! Eat, drink, and relax. Take a book and camera instead of needle and thread. Enjoy.

  4. Have a wonderful and safe trip and enjoy yourself!
