Dashing Through The Lights

This year we put our Christmas tree up, took it down after finding kitties halfway up the tree resting on branches, and then decided to try putting up a tree again. Sometimes I wonder if it is worth putting up a tree with kitties in the house.

After staring at an empty place where the Christmas tree belonged, we concluded that it is worth it if they climb the tree and take cat naps on the branches. Up went the tree, and up went the cats.

Merry Christmas!

Italy trip

I have been going through my pictures, and have enjoyed looking at this album of Italy. I was able to go over last year to attend a conference. This was the first time I have been back in twenty years. The pictures are made up mostly of places we lived as a family. My brother and I were able to go together, and we were graciously hosted by some friends of ours from language school in Perugia. I feel such a sense of nostalgia when I look at these pictures. I miss Italy so much. It was strange to go back as a tourist knowing I would be returning to the US after such a short time. Tonight I made cookies with Nutella in them, and I remembered how much I enjoyed the simple pleasures. Fortunately, you can find it here! Saturday, we are going up to my brother's house to celebrate a late Thanksgiving, only we will be making homemade tortellini instead of turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
