I have all these pics to show you...

I went out in the garden today and took all these fancy-schmancy photos with my high-tech, state-of-the-art digital camera. I was excited to post pics of the gorgeous flowers coming into bloom. Since it's my last season in St. Louis, I'm trying to document everything. You would have loved the close-ups of the deep purple clematis flowers, spiraling up the trellis, bordered in the background by light, airy pink blooms on the rose shrub. You might have also enjoyed some photos of pink Old English roses, blooming boldly for the first year on the vine I transplanted last fall to a sunnier spot. It had rings upon rings of petals; I've never seen a rose stuffed with so many petals. It also had a light, fresh, sweet fragrance--perfect for my sensitive nose. But, alas, when I went back inside to retrieve the card reader, I couldn't find it. Neither could I find the adaptor that connects my nifty camera to the computer. Did I lose it? No. I packed it. I have packed almost everything. Damn! Oh, well. I still have the camera. I will document everything for now, and I guess you'll have to wait until December. Argh. Well, at least you can imagine the photos of my pretty garden in St. Louis.


Imagine pictures here...

you silly girl!! i can say this b/c i do the exact same thing. how often do i pack for a trip the night before only to have to unpack half the stuff to find something i desperately need the next morning?? too often..

God bless us OCDers...we make life interesting for ourselves. ;)

i have a solution for that (not that you can do this when you are moving a whole house) but when i am going out of town, i have gotten to where i never pack until right before i leave. theoretically, that prevents me from forgetting to pack something i might need, and it allows me to have access to everything up until the moment that i am heading out the door.

I'd rather suck it up and do without the stuff I don't really need rather than packing at the last minute.
