What can this blog do for me? That is what I’ve been thinking about this week.
I started this blog with a clear idea. I wanted to showcase my typewriters & cameras. I have a decent sized collection. I’m sure I’ll get there. This trip has derailed things in a mostly positive way.
It’s also reminded me of the life habits I want to work on. So Thursdays will be for sharing what felt important over the last week.
I’ve made a little headway with the packing list. Second pair of shoes arrive tomorrow. I’ve narrowed down the pants search. Also I found a possible wallet. Fossil has some RFID ones you can fit a few cards and a cell phone in. I need a wallet I can fit in my camera bag for sightseeing. The RFID just sounds like a bonus.
I though I had everything else till my husband reminded me I need sleepwear. I’ll be rooming with my parents. I might want something that’s not threadbare. Also I need socks. I noticed the pair I’m sporting are nearly worn through in the toes. So dress socks are on the list.
Oh, and the final item is a haircut. I have way too many PTO hours at work so I’ve taken next Friday off before I lose some. I’ll fit in a haircut and hopefully hit up the outlet mall. There’s a Fossil store and the new Filson store is open.
And I realized I need a book to read. There will be some extra time at the airport, time on the plane, and probably extra time on the first night. My current list is Copycat Killing & Cat Trick by Sofie Kelly and Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs. I’ll pass the cat books on to my Mother when I finish.
So I ordered shoes. I measured twice. Managed to get the wrong size. I’ve ordered the right size but they are non-returnable/exchangeable. So Now I have a pair of shoes to sell.
Every 4th Saturday we get together with our vintage computer friends.

Here are two of the machines we had forsale.
Monitor issues resolved themselves. Not sure if that’s good or means future troubles.
I haven’t had a reason to fly anywhere since the mid 90’s. Next month a trip 56 years in the making is putting me on a plane. I’m working on a packing list for four days.
The main events are an banquet and a formal dinner.
- 2 Tees
- 2 Layers (sweater/sweatshirt)
- Dress Pants
- Dressy Top
- Walking Shoes
Most of these things I own. Still need to locate the right heels and dress pants.
Early stages of knitting a sweater for our new nephew. He’s 6 months old. I’ve yet to knit sleeves that look great so wish me luck. They don’t seem hard but I still struggle.
