After such an intense, busy month it's hard to settle into normal life again.
Not that it will be normal any time soon…. As I sat down to type this, two 10lb puppies came racing down the hall to remind me that it's time for 'puppy feeding frenzy'.
We don't have feeding time, we have feeding frenzy.
Kind of hard to tell as I have not had a moment to think in over two weeks.
It's been busy.
Everyone arrived in Italy as scheduled, with their respective bags accompanying them (amazingly).
Much wine was tasted, and approved of; much beer was consumed; a reasonable amount of espresso was made and 'a good time …
Happy Earth Day!
The theme for this year is 'A Billion Acts of Green'.
I checked out the Earth Day site looking for an idea for a topic.
I thought about carrying reusable shopping bags, which I've been doing for years.
I thought about walking more and driving less; keeping the house at 66F (I wish it would get so …

When I checked out the cashier asked if I was interested in the cookware promotion.

I was a good girl…
