While Sarah Brightman sings her heart out on the CD player and the cold wind blows through the house, we are closing up the hacienda for the season. Yes, it's time to head back home again, a bit early this time but I think we're ready.
Sofa pillows are all bagged up and ready to be moved into the bedroom for the duration. Fernando is doing quite a bit of work in the living room so EVERYTHING has to be moved out.
Pictures are down, books all boxed up, chotskies all put away, photos tucked into drawers, clothes are packed or stowed for next year. We have to have it all finished by Sunday morning and, if we keep up this pace, we'll make it.
Meanwhile, Mr. C has packed up the car with the various boxes holding our precious treasures.
We still have to get in our suitcases, the food box and the two coolers. It's going to be a tight squeeze, but what else is new? I am actually looking forward to coming down next year with one or two suitcases and perhaps a box of can't-do-withouts.
