I'm packing for myself and the girls and we're heading to the Cape today. 'A' starts a week of camp at the Audubon Sanctuary tomorrow and we're all looking forward to spending some time at the beach and seeing my mom and my stepfather. Jeff will join us later this week. I'm excited to go, but not happy about leaving my garden and kitchen at this time of year. I had wanted 'A' to go to camp at this time of year because it's good for us to escape the "Back to school" madness that we're (thankfully) not part of. But now that I'm in the full swing of eating and preserving local produce, I see that late August is a prime time to be close to the garden, preserving all the goodness nature has given us.
On the up side, I was notified yesterday by the library that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was available and waiting for me. I put my name on the loan list a few months ago and was distressed that I started out at place #314. I can't tell you how pleased I am that it was available for me the day before I was scheduled to leave for a beach vacation. Perfect timing.
I've got my camera battery charged and I'm looking forward to capturing a week on the Cape in pictures! Stay tuned and have a wonderful day.
