I’m a list maker extroidinaire.
A planner of events and gatherings.
An organizer, cleaner and straightener.
Make no mistake!!! I don’t live my life with military precision and my house is not showroom ready at a moments notice. If the Queen arrives unexpectedly I might fret for a moment, but I’d get over it and welcome her in.
Yesterday, I talked about keeping the “junk” in the trunk. As you can imagine with a new season upon us, and before I could put the donation box neatly into the corner of my trunk, I had to tidy up a little. I was happy to put my snow brush a bit closer to the trunk exit, move the reusable grocery bags over and review what was in my winter car kit that I gladly didn’t need once.
I pulled everything out and repacked it. It carries my workboots, a warm pair of socks, a t-shirt, some fleece leggings and a Banff sweatshirt that I bought in, well…Banff. I unpacked the mittens and the scarf and tucked it back in the corner. Hope I don’t regret that.
It did get me thinking about a summer kit though. It’s pink…very pink.
When I packed it, I’ll admit, I packed it like a girl. As in, if my car breaks down, please let it be in front of a three, four or gasp…five star hotel. 🙂 Nothing in this bag will help me fix my car. Trust me, for my safety, and that of all others on the road, that’s a really good thing. They make CAA memberships for people just like me.
The things in my car that I do keep handy are:
- Hand wipes
- Bottle of water or two
- Lip balm
- Cell phone charger
- Hand cream/nail file (on the passenger side of course)
- Coffee card
I really don’t need much more than that anyway.
Sending you love love love…
