It always seems, prior to a trip, the world comes crashing in causing me to lose what little mind I have remaining. However, so far, things appear to be moving along swimmingly for this departure. Work is getting organized. Preparatory piles are growing with clothing, essentials, techno gear, etc. [Actually, completely packed and ready to go. Though the piles did build prior to yesterday.] I sit typing instead of yelling about what still has to be done. All-in-all, it's looking good.
Still wish I could have dropped "those few pounds" I keep complaining about prior to heading to foodie and wino heaven. But as I look back at pictures of previous trips (where I found the new picture for the blog), it seems I've not "dropped those few pounds" for a very long time now. Sigh. [Oh, good heavens - it's still the truth...sigh.]
The only "gotcha" so far looks to be the weather in [Barcelona is the starting point for this trip]. It has been lovely there and hovering in the mid to high 60's. Sadly, temps will fall when we arrive...50's and 60's and, perhaps, raining . We truly need to remember to travel with Betty's brother and sister-in-law who seem to have been blessed with the weather karma gene.
Well, time to get back to putting work in its place. As always...te souhaitant le meilleur de la vigne (wishing you the best of the vine).
