Nice way to start the first non-busy day of the week, eh? I was going to stop in here to talk about "what's in my summertime car gear bag/basket" (I think it's an official term). For starters, I keep a pair of utility scissors and a lidded glass jar filled half way with water for easy and spontaneous curbside flower arranging (hence the yummy lilacs in the photo above). There are other things too - sunblock, bug spray, freshened up first aid kit, change of clothes, towels, local trail map book, extra shoes (especially shoes for river walking), things like that. There are more things of course. I was hoping to work through my list out loud, so to speak, with all of you as I'd love to have my car equipped by the weekend.
Then there was a flood. In my basement.
We've never had a drop of water in our basement and I cannot figure out where it is coming from. Of course, did you notice that I've stopped mid-flood to blog about it? Yeah, probably not of apocalyptic concern or anything...
Care to keep me company while I'm mopping and repairing?
What do you keep as essential summertime car gear?
We all have different lists and I'd love to know what is on yours. It's a good time for all of us to start thinking about this. I know my list is lacking a few things but right about now I've got "basement is flooding" on my mind, and can't seem to focus on this silly list. Seeking and accepting all advice... and goulashes.
Oh! If you have a moment please stop by Enchanted Chameleon, Suzanne asked me a few questions about green smoothies (which you know I love to talk about) - it has been great seeing so much green smoothie love around my favorite blogs and flickr streams lately.
Okay, back to the flood.
