    Your Photos Are Needed

    Trip to Victoria BC via boat and bus to see the Butchart gardens with my Synik 22. I was very grateful for the space to carry layers and hands free mobility.

    I shall have to look and see if we can get oil-packed oysters, I’ve never noticed them.
    I eat mackerel with puffed rice cakes and I pour the oil over the rice cakes so it soaks in. That's tasty too!

    Some folks don't like fishy/oily/smokey, but they hit the spot for me.

    ETA - I eat them carefully over the sink because I'm a klutz and I do not want to spill smokey fishy oil everywhere :)

    My LSB held a pretty opposite load from @G42’s - 20 boxes of mac and cheese (my daughter’s dinner most nights, on sale this week) with room to spare!

    I would have (or just hand carried the port) but I knew I was soooooo close!
    It's a basically a game to me to try to fit it all in and it worked... and nothing fell out on the drive home or up three flights of stairs...which is where those poron handles really shine

    This is one of the reasons why the original Small Shop Bags are my favorite TB item... small but mighty holders of random things!
    Such a good haul! The lentil pasta is wonderful — it’s quickly become one of my favorites. As for the black bean pasta, I don’t think I ever got the cooking time right. I’ve tried it a few times, but it always seemed to go from undercooked straight to quite glommy and gloopy. If you discover the secret, I’d love to know!

    Happy eating!

    Stopped by Trader Joe's on the way home from work for three things, so brought in only one SSB... but the new autumn items are in and I saw some other random things I haven't tried before, so it turned into a experimental (and mostly vegetarian) shopping visit... and I carefully Tetris'd it all into one SSB:

    Weekend trip - both the RB36 and the MCB are underpacked and quite lightweight. I thought about using my DLBP instead of the RB36, but I prefer the duffel for clothes and stuff, even if it's too big.

    Aubergine and Steel is really a lovely color combination...

    I recently downsized to a one bedroom apartment... I use moving as a time to purge stuff and also to rethink/rearrange things
    This move resulted in several of my Travel Trays providing organization for small stuff in two drawers of a small antique side board I have from my great grandmother - I like the mix of old and modern. There are also some Cubelets and Stuff Sacks. These are all either small random thingys or travel related stuff.
    Oh, and the Small Snake Charmer holds my work laptop charger & mouse for when I travel

    Thought I would show my new Aubergine Pop Tote in its role as personal item when I travelled to Philadelphia for my brother's wedding. I especially liked that I could just stuff things in (food, sweater, scarf) without worrying. I clipped my own personal small pocket to one of the inner o-rings.

    I'm very pleased to say I now have no more plane travel scheduled and I think I can now avoid taking a plane for at least a year.

    MCB on my way to work on a Saturday morning. It's way too early and the train times differ slightly on the weekend, and I forgot. So what do you do when you have to wait twenty minutes for the next train and there's no one around?
