Friday's Frivolities!

The only problem with two day getaways is that they are two day getaways! Lol!
I have a system now because this is the 5th one we have taken...I keep everything I need in my suitcase...all creams and lotions and potions and tweezers and eyelash curlers and absolutely anything that I use all of the time and have now triplicated! This stuff is bagged in my suitcase and when we decide to go...I just need outfits. It's a perfect plan! And shoes...since we are driving...I pop a basket in the car with every pair I think I might need...if we have car access I just leave the basket in the car and change when I need to...but in Annapolis Den had to bring it in because once we valeted the car...we didn't even touch the car again until we left. In Annapolis there are great cabs, water taxis, shuttles and jitneys! So much fun...this is my quick trip suitcase...this one is at Amazon but I snatched mine from T.J.Maxx and I love has a hard shell and's perfect for our mini trips!

Can I just say that we loved Annapolis so much we are heading back in a few weeks?

We mostly just were on our own but this next time we are going to go to the Naval Academy and the Museum...and take a canal tour!

This is the perfect time of year for this kind of travel...there are no crowds!

The only part of the drive I hated was the drive on the bridge over the is so high and long and scary...I am not usually bothered by bridges but this one was so long! Look at this bridge! OMG!

 we are back to reality...Den is mowing, Lucy just came back from her cold laser treatment, I am sort of cleaning and tidying the house and planning week end football foods...

White chicken chili with big white beans from Bon Appetit!

Creamy enchiladas from Miss In The Kitchen!

Green Minestroni...yum...really sure about this one! This recipe comes from Eats Well With Others!

Just finished this YA fantasy...loved it!

Starting this later...described as a "haunting" tale!

Right now Roxie Blue has me held sleeping in my lap! They missed us...even though the sitter came in three times in a two day period!

Happy Friday!


  1. I'm trying to pack for a 9 or 10 day getaway. Good thing there's a washer and dryer at the condo.

  2. Send me that chili recipe :) It looks good.

  3. Petsitters should come in often. When I had my business I always treated them as my own. I worried when they were alone! They appreciated the attention.

  4. Ooh, that bridge freaks me out a little bit...the clever way you have your suitcase partially packed sounds like something I should try.
