One Week To Go

It is finally down to one week now until our vacation and with no bad luck next Sunday at this time I will be half way to Gettyburg!
It feels like it has taken a long time to arrive. Remind me next year to NOT plan so far ahead when I want to go somewhere ok.
I feel like I have a million things to do, but If I push came to shove I could get it ready and in the car in about an hour and go. OK, make that two hours, but I do have most of it together. At lest it is together in my head.

I have a list made and have begun to mark things off on it as I get them ready. Actually it SEVERAL list. I divided things up to make sure I don't forget anything. One list for camping stuff like flash lights and batteries, the grill, charcoal, ice chest etc.
The next list is for cooking. Things I need like a hand held can opener, paper plates a sharp knife, a table cloth, and lots of other stuff.

Then I have listed all the food I want to cook and the clothes we need to bring. 99% of MY clothes are packed (the hubby has to do his yet, but he owns fewer clothes than I do so he can't pack until the last minute) and the food of course can't be put in the car until the last minute.

The last list is my "ghost hunting" things. Of course we can't afford "real" equipment like you see on TV but I do have
The camera, extra batteries, the charger a compass, the tape recorders, and even a small outdoor thermometer. (Did you know that drops in temperature have been reported when paranormal occurrences are about to happen?) And last but not lest the books by Mark Nesbitt on the Ghost of Gettysburg (gotta check out some of the places)

Anyway I probably won't be posting much this next week. After today I only have one more day off work before we leave and I want to have it all in the car (except for the food) before then. I will pop in to say goodbye and let everyone know we are on the way and I will try and read your blogs of course but if you don't see anything here for awhile don't worry.
Life is good, just busy.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I have a Canon S3IS but I'm just lucky if I get any good shots. I never could understand the instruction book. I read on another forum to put it on P and for a while I got some good shots then I had to switch to another setting. Now it's on C. I think something is wrong with the camera settings.
Hope you have a great vacation!

Sound like you have your act together.
So if I don't get chance to wish you a wonderful time.
I'll do it now.

Coffee is on.

I'm so excited for you!! It's going to be great, I'm sure, and you'll return with tons of stories to tell us. I also have the habit of listing everything not to forget any item when traveling, as my mind is always elsewhere... Will you have time to do rituals or spells? Just curious, because you didn't mention any "magick list".
Loved the dried leaves backgroud!

Kisses and takecare!
