By the time you read this I’ll be on a plane to my grandparents. Or I may already be there. Or…I may be back. Kinda just depends on when you’re tuning in. But. Getting on a plane. Heading to my Grandparents. Pretty excited!
My Grandparents own a Catfish Farm/Restaurant and this weekend is the restaurant’s 40th anniversary! < So, we’re having a big party. I’m sure next week Thinking Out Loud will be full of pictures from there, so I won’t talk about it too much now.
I sent my luggage ahead of time with my Mum (who drove out there last week), because I’m riding back with her at the end of the weekend. It’s really strange to pack for a trip a week in advance. < I mean, I’m always an “early” packer, but I usually have the bag there to unpack and repack 10 times before the trip. But sending all of your luggage and then not seeing it for a week…strange! I keep thinking “I’ll wear this” and then realizing < Nope, it’s packed! 🙂 I am proud of myself for packing fairly compact-ly in a suitcase + my camera bag. < I even fit snacks in there! And a pillow! (I’m really really particular about my pillows…so I have a travel version of my “at home” pillow) … Now I just have to hold myself to boarding the plane with just my purse, and not taking more luggage!
While I’m gone Little Indy Kitty has to have some dental work done. 🙁 It’s all routine, but he has to be put to sleep, and since he has The Diabetes, they have to keep him before and after for monitoring. I’ve been giving him extra love before I leave. < He greatly enjoys that. Not.
This weekend I set up my light box (above..that needs some repairs, apparently). .. and Indy decided it was where he wanted to hang out now. Which made photographing some new stock for my Etsy store a bit harder. ^ In love with these new earrings. << Shameless plug.
Dear banana ice cream:
Why have I not made you in so so long? < I love you, banana ice cream. And I promise to keep my freezer much more stocked with bananas so that you can happen much more often. (Or, at least when I’m being too lazy / and / or / cheap to buy the store bought stuff!)
Speaking of cooking… (uhm, if Banana Ice Cream can be considered cooking…) … Garlic roasting is the most amazing smell ever. Seriously. … Do you have a favorite kitchen-smell? Mine has to be (In this order): garlic roasting, onions caramelizing, and anything with fall spices in it.
^ Speaking of. I am not ready for the sunshine to go away. But my brain has all been about fall flavors. I just need some more nutmeg in my life!
