Saturday Pre Pack
Saturday, February 15, 2020
Today was strip the bed, vacuum everything, and finish up clearing up my desk. I am almost through now and midday taking a break to Spark. We have dinner plans with friends tonight, then a final pack tomorrow. My Dopp bag is ready, and I have my clothes hanging in one bunch ready to be folded. Most of my gear is athletic wear, including long sleeved shirts to ward off more sun damage. We will avoid the noonday sun, but sunscreen and zinc are mandatory all the time. I Have several kinds- portable sticks, lotions, sweat proof gels and guy friendly lotions.
Today I watched a video of what Gwyneth Paltrow eats in a day. I have always wondered what the Goop queen might do and to my surprise, she is not so weird. Her day is pretty ordinary, not so different from what many of my friends actually do. The coconut oil thing is not my thing— I just do not like the stuff, but where’s the harm. I gained a little more respect for this entrepreneurial celeb. No keto endorsements, or intermittent fasting, just a pretty responsible account of what works for her.
Part two of my prep begins now as I get my carryon set up. Lots of careful planning for enough supplies — my portable Waterpik , dental gizmos, and Montreal Steak Spice. We may not get to use this, but the real stuff is always welcome as a gift for our homeowner.
We have just heard that some minor construction at our rental is ongoing - moving the laundry pair from the garage to an enclosure on the patio. We may be in the casita for a week or more, but are prepared . In fact , the smaller unit was the original plan , but who knows. It’s always an adventure. The only thing the casita lacks is a dishwasher in an otherwise brand new kitchen.
Better get some rubber gloves !!!
Off to tackle my desk... ugh !
