Easy Packing

I'm in the middle of packing for a quick little vacation we're about to take. It's more of a really long weekend than anything else, but it's the best kind. We've got very few plans other than to hang out with friends and relatives by the water. It's the kind of trip for which I've packed my junkiest clothes (yoga pants with shot elastic and holes in the knees even though I don't do yoga) and my best books. It's so much better than going somewhere that you have to put on lipstick and impress people. The juicy plum I've been saving for this getaway is Stieg Larson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo My nine year old daughter has packed L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Avonlea and what she calls "cozy clothes." That apple didn't fall very far from this old tree.

Oh, I remember Ann of Avonlea.

Have a blast. And tell us all about the Dragon Girl when you get back.
