Howdeeee! It's a steamy hot day here in the Carolinas, but we have work to do! Mom has been working off and on all day getting things packed and ready to roll tomorrow. She tries her best to pack Splish efficiently and with each trip we take together, I notice that we get closer and closer to perfection!
This morning she got all of Miss Murphy's meds refilled and made a trip to the grocery store. Once back home, she packed our vintage picnic tin with staples, double-checked our list of foods to go in the Yeti in the morning, boxed up 20 bars of soap, and made sure all the techno stuff is in the bag.
Next, our CDO bucket needed attention. Mom knew there was stuff in it that wasn't necessary and needed to be taken out. Weber starter cubes needed to be re-filled, a new lid-lifter had to be fitted in, and then the big bucket could take its proper place in Splish's truck bed.
After a short break to cool off, it was time to pull out The Clam, camping mats, Mr. Weber, her favorite chair and foot stool, REI kitchen, Luggable Loo, and ice maker. Man oh man camping with me, Murphy, and Aunt Becky for a week requires a lot of stuff!!
What's left to do today? Murphy gets a bath, clothes get packed, food for everyone gets packed, and then we make an ice run for the Yeti. But in the middle of all that, we gotta watch the Panther's pre-season game at three o'clock.
Thanks for coming 'round today for a Packing Tale. I will be turning the blogging duties back to Momma Sharon tomorrow and she will be sending you Postcards all week from Maryland. Y'all have a good week, don't look directly at that sun on Monday, and until I'm back with another Story, always remember . . .
"Peace, Love, & Packing"
