Moving Day

Running boxes to a moving truck can be very therapeutic, and can remind one that reading isn’t always the lightest of hobbies. Nonetheless, I can’t quite part with my books, even as I labor to carry them into storage. It’s good practice for toting a suitcase as well.

I’m headed off on a new adventure and looking forward to sharing new stories, photos, and tales with you. Here’s to the adventure ahead!

    That looks positively Burgundian, Paige – where is it ? But more importantly, where are you off to, this time ? πŸ™‚

    • Hi dear M-R, this is in Budapest, Hungary. I’ll spend some time there this Fall. πŸ™‚

    Be safe travelling can be so dangerous

    • I agree, Joanne, but sometimes staying at home can be as well. I’ll be on the look out for the good, the bad, and the lovely. πŸ™‚

    Books are like old friends, you just can’t leave them behind.

    • Yes, I agree. And I have some “acquaintances” given to me by other friends, which I can’t part with either. πŸ™‚

    I just put a ton of books in storage as well as we plan our next adventure. All the best. Can’t wait to read all about your travels and the people you meet.

    • Thank you, Darlene! I’m sure it will be worth sending my friends into a dark, quiet, climate-controlled place. πŸ™‚ All the best on your adventure and we’ll keep in touch along the way.

    Be well, and we’ll catch you on the internets πŸ˜‰ and perhaps in some chatroom somewhere πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Pamela. Your support really means a lot to me! I know we’ll always have the interwebtubes (until we don’t). πŸ™‚
      See you in chat soonish, I hope!
