Ordinary days

Here I am again staring at an empty page for the second day, looking forward to having some time to write.  Justin is napping, the house is a mess, but I am going to do something  for me. 

Ok, an hour and a half has passed, and I have deleted everything I have written.  Soon Justin will be up, and I won't have anything to post.  That's okay, as I think my writing muscles have atrophied since I have been away from it for so long.  I am challenging myself to write everyday...That doesn't mean I will have long entries, just entries.

So, it has been an ordinary day, with the exception of getting to spend time with Justin, the love of my life, (one of them), playing, reading and writing.  Very ordinary in an extraordinary kind of way!

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!
