Time to put the finishing touches on our projects; followed by cleaning, laundry and packing. It's off to California on Wednesday until the end of June. We have a house sit in Sacramento for distant relatives we met through Facebook! They are going to Greece while we take care of their Springer Spaniel, Toby. I'm sure a good time will be had by all, just in different ways.
This should be a fun house sit, as we used to live in Sacramento many years ago. Our daughter was born there, but we left before she turned two. A lot has changed in the intervening years. There's a renovated Crocker Art Gallery to visit. The foothills to the west of town now have wineries. And I'm sure the traffic has not improved a bit!
Packing will not be the same as for our overseas trips. We are driving our car, which means I can take extra shoes for gardening, heels for going out to dinner, an extra pair of sandals. When we fly, we only take one carry on size suitcase each, a bookbag backpack for meds and electronics and I carry the laptop case. No extra room for spare shoes!
