Oh, look at the cool picture! 🙂 Not distracted? It snowed in Denver last night, like enough inches to hang off the fall-leafed trees. I had to add “get sprinkler system winterized” on my dobeforeileaveonfriday list because it’s been such a long Indian Summer, it hadn’t quite caught my attention Winter IS Coming. Weird how it always surprises me at the end of every October.
Have I told y’all where I’m going? I can’t remember – well, I do remember where I’m going, just not if I told you. Sniffa is going to Barcelona, but a couple of us that do the overseas trip when we can thought, well, we are close to Morocco, let’s go to Marrakech and ride camels and shop in the souks! That’s where four of us are headed on Friday. A week in Morocco, then fly back to Barcelona, meet up with the Sniffa people for a fabulous week there (just saw the itinerary, it’s great!), then three of us go to Paris for four days of shopping/eating/Frenchifying.
We are so hoping that the new Hermessence will be out by then, some more of the Numeros from L’Artisan are being released then, I think. Will get to meet up with the Lovely Ms Grain de Musc and catch up on Neela’s perfumes.
Um, so I have a little over 24 hours before I get on the plane. I have a ton of work to do, I haven’t packed anything, just got my suitcases out, looked at them, started putting clothes in a pile to pack, checked the forecast for all three cities, collapsed on the floor in puzzlement, and I’m still not sure how I’m going to get the packing quite right. But I best be figuring it out. I’m thinking one pair of sandals, a pair of flat mary janes, plenty of black pants, one black skirt, a couple of tunics, some plain shirts, then cardigans and my one super-warm but lightweight jacket that scrunches up super-small. Oh, black socks and underwear and pajamas and a robe.
Do we think this will work? I need room for everything to buy, but I have to ship or keep it down to just one checked bag to Paris. On the leg home, then United will let me bring plenty of suitcases weighing lots without robbing me blind like they do on intra-European flights.
Tips, things I haven’t thought of? Help me, I’m panicking!!!!
