The historian and I are celebrating our tenth anniversary, taking a little trip to the coast. Looking forward to it so much! I really can never get quite enough of the ocean and how the air feels when you're there.

Here's what I've done to get ready for this trip, yesterday and today:
  • had breakfast with my makeup artist daughter and grandson yesterday
  • visited singing son's wife and tiny son today
  • chatted with college daughter
  • exchanged excellent e-mails with running son in Malaysia
  • chatted with Scotland daughter
  • sent packets of poems to six journals and my manuscript to five competitions
  • picked up a Dublin detective novel from the library's robot
  • cleaned up the kitchen
  • ate up some leftovers for dinner
  • watched the Jazz finish off the T-wolves
  • watched Damages
  • listened to the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • engaged in a little organizing and rabble-rousing
  • developed a wardrobe concept
And now, I am off to turn that wardrobe concept into a little thing we call "packing." I love the historian! The people, I will talk to you when I get back.


  1. I want to go with you. Please add me to your list of things to pack.

  2. Oh, have a fabulous time. Love and luck to you both.

  3. Ten years? Really? It feels like just yesterday. Enjoy the ocean and each other. Of course you will!

  4. do you often listen to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to get ready for traveling? I like that this made the list. Have fun have fun have fun!

  5. Enjoy, dears. It is beautiful and moody out here now.

  6. Congratulations. I hope it's all the good stuff on the trip: sea, silence, food...

  7. Where on the coast? There is coast and then there is coast. . . . .

  8. Oh yes. And congratulations!

  9. Congratulations indeed. Hope you had a lovely time.
