Today I have lots of laundry to do—the kind of laundry that means I want to pack some items so that they are all ready to go on the other end of the move.  There are, of course, many boxes still to be packed, but, in addition, I need to stock the SUV today with items that I will need at the new place on Friday when my daughter is going to help me put up blinds, prepare the kitchen with shelf liner, and all those sorts of tasks.  I’m taking a folding table to serve as a work table and some chairs to sit in.  I know it’s a long time till Friday, but I can drop these essentials off tomorrow after closing so that I can haul something else on Friday.

Addition to yesterday’s post—Excellent audio book readers on Librivox:  Elizabeth Klett and Brenda Dayne (yes, the Cast-On lady). One of the great things to discover about audio books is that listening to a book that you may have read many times is a different experience when it processes audibly.  I don’t know why.  I first discovered this when listening to Klett’s reading of Jane Eyre and found myself noticing themes and motifs that I had not noticed just reading the book myself.  Of course, the same thing can be said for reversing the experience, but I think everyone expects that to happen.
