My Italian Home

It has been pretty quiet as we have another 3 day weekend and all the oung’uns are gone sightseeing.  It is not in my budget to travel every weekend and I am saving up for a 5 day trip to Pulgia, the family home of my mother’s side of the family.  I have already enjoyed quite a few dishes from that region and am anxious to really roll around in the cuisine.

Since I have no exciting stories for you I’ll show you a little bit of where I live. I know you will suffer no more whining from me after you see these.

My bedroom shared with Kristine


Are those quilts too funny, or what.  I had a double bed, so we took it apart and made 2 singles.  Note the classy plastic coffee table. 

Half of the french door


The sun comes flooding into the room at about 7:15 Am, what a joy to wake up to.  It was only a few days ago that it occurred to me that that is NOT the view I will have when I wake up at home.  I may need to consider rearranging my bedroom.  As soon as I get up I go outside on the large veranda to check out the weather.  Here are some shots from the veranda.

How could Life be Better?


Finally, a good use for the bidet.

Pedicure time !


And finally – this is for the cousins.  Who does this remind you of?? Remember Happy?

Looks like Grandma's Cookie Jar


Ciao for now,
