I started to do this post over an hour ago but got distracted by more than a dozen Facebook messages wishing us well. I am beyond touched by the love and support! Thank you lovely people!
So, here we are, T minus 10.5! (Surely 10 flat by the time I finish!) The mad rush of stuff is over. There are still about a dozen things to do in the morning but they are not time consuming (save the final load of laundry!).
It's a big goodbye. Gregg talked to his aunt. I talked to his mom. I called my bro and SIL and talked to Danny and Sara (nephew and niece). We'll call my folks tomorrow from Coronado, the last stop in the US.
Goodbye figs! (last year the little tree (3-ft tall) made ONE fig; this year, loaded! I am happy to have picked half a dozen before we leave --hope that John and Diane like figs!)Goodbye butternut squash that took me two years to grow! Wonder if there are more of you out on the vine???
