So – now we are up to Sunday morning. Again, it was very relaxing. We all read for a little while and then started packing.
It was as this point I ran into a little problem. You see, I over packed and didn’t have quite enough room for everything in my suitcase. I did get it closed – it was mostly books and I had rolled up my clothes into tiny little balls and put them in the carry-on bag. I thought it would be easier that way since I could pull the luggage. Then on that final look around the room I noticed that I hadn’t packed my running shoes. There was just no way those puppies were going to fit into either the suitcase or the carry-on. Well – with the encouragement of Nath and
Now it’s not quite as bad as it sounds. I had tried wearing them just before our walking/shopping marathon and the hard plastic back of one of them rubbed through the rubber and they were rubbing against my heel. I would have got terrible blisters if I tried wearing them – so I needed a new pair anyway. But I think it struck us all as funny that I would throw them away just like that.
Of course I did manage to find just a wee tiny bit more room for the book Amy was reading and then lent to me – Lora Leigh’s Forbidden Pleasures. Something tell me that one is going to be WAY outside my box ;-)
After breakfast sadly and reluctantly, it was time to say goodbye to Nath and Amy as I was taking the noon train. I left them trying to figure out how to connect with Chantal and it looks like they found a way. And they bought even more books!
The rest of the journey was pretty uneventful until I pulled into the driveway of the house and did a Great Big Huge OOPS. It seems in my rush to leave I had neglected to close the side door – no, not the gender neutral screen door. But the big door, the door that get’s locked at night. Which means that I left the house not only unlocked, but open since Friday morning!!???
And Zina the Not a Warrior Princess has let her displeasure about me leaving be know. The great thing about most cats is you can leave them for a couple of days as long as there is enough food and water for them. But they do have a way of getting back at you though. Non-stop meowing for over an hour, let’s their owners/servants know they are not happy animals. Even though it get’s on the nerves after about ten minutes, I do admire persistence in my wee Zina.
So that’s it! My weekend adventures. Of course still to come is the book list. We’re going to share pics and since I have NO idea how to zip before sending them, Nath sent me instructions.
Last thoughts: It was wonderful meeting Nath and
