The office is super, super quiet, and I don’t have anything too too pressing at the moment. I did some logistics for our trip to Orlando and my tentative visit to Bamako toward the end of January.
Over the long weekend I sped through Austenland and A Weekend with Mr. Darcy. And now that it's bleak and rainy I just want to stay in bed with my new flannel sheets and read.
It doesn’t look like we’ll be able to visit the manatees. We are going to visit my aunt and her family who live in Tampa, and thought we’d have time to head over to Crystal River with the rental car. mortuus had enjoyed swimming with the manatees, and I’m a member of the Save the Manatee club, so I was really looking forward to it. I called and they suggested a kayak tour instead with Aardvark’s Florida Kayak Company, but when I contacted their office and asked about logistics it didn’t seem possible. I don’t want to rush the visit with my relatives, and then have to scramble to make the tour as well. We’ll be back, my dear manatees, I promise!
