Last post from Italy
It's been raining allot the past two days. It's made it easy to decide to return home one day early. So today we packed up everything. Juergen was sure it would never fit. I was sure it would be fine. And I was right. We had loads of space to spare. I want to fill it up with a few more plants. We will see! I went to a second hand shop both yesterday and today. I picked up a few small things (nothing too big). But they had really beautiful furniture for very good prices (antiques). If I wanted to rent a truck and travel 12 hours, I could really have fun shopping for furniture, food, plants and terracotta pots. But no chance! Besides, my house is already pretty full. I don't really need much. And I'm looking forward to being home. We plan to stop in Austria over night, and get home on Saturday (God willing). I've already packed my camera card reader. The last photos will have to wait until we return home. I'm cooking the last vegetables, making a sauce for dinner. And everything is pretty much ready to go. It’s all been ok. I wish I could say it was great, but the weather was not very good. I loved the company, the food, and the sleep. But I didn’t really sleep well because the bed was not very good. It was a nice vacation , but not great. But that is really because of the weather. And I’m sure many people in Europe also suffered from the cold and rain. But that’s a 1st world problem. I really could not complain. I’m grateful we had this time, and I’ll be so happy to be home.
