Ready to Go...

Am packed except for my electric razor, which I'll need in the morning.I think this is the earliest I've ever been ready to go. Flight leaves at 6:55 a.m.

Longish day, but at least the sun was out. It was really quite lovely. Got everything I needed to do done at work, even though it took me until 6. Then, since it was the first sunny day after ten days of rain, I did what everyone else in my neighborhood was doing. I mowed the lawn. The ground was still so wet that it was like walking across a wet sponge. I'm hoping the exertion will help me get to sleep quicker that is usual on nights before an early flight.

My decision to pick up a couple of novels at Borders the other night turned out to be a good one, as the books I ordered from Amazon Marketplace are still in transit. Also in transit are not one, but two bike saddles, both won on eBay. They should arrive after I'm back.

Time to hit the sack.
