Almost ready and off tomorrow!

 I have been so busy.  So busy I have had no time to write and no time to read any blogs in days.  I have missed my blog friends words and photos but tasks must be done.  

Such as banking, bills, wash and ironing.  Some cleaning too.

I haven't packed.  I thought I would have a trial run earlier this week and nada did not happen.  Today will be packing day!  Oh today is busy!

My mom's birthday is tomorrow but we are going to visit her today.  I put together a DVD of her younger years and got it burned and ready to bring over.  I wanted to bake cupcakes for her and the caregivers but I forgot to buy flour.  I can't believe I was totally out of flour!   That just doesn't happen here in my pantry.  So instead of banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting I am letting my Love pick some out this morning for me.  This is not a big failure to not have homemade.   I am accepting this hard as it is for me.  Let go Ellen......

So we will pay a visit, bring a little vase of flowers and the DVD and then back home to work, work, work!   Not to forget charging cameras one last time.  Getting all the papers in order to put in my bag.   

I was so nervous yesterday with excitement.   Surprised myself by sleeping soundly as I was fearing I wouldn't be able to sleep.  Tonight  I may have to take some Calm Forte to make sure I get a good night's rest. to enchanting Venice first....then Cinque Terre ~ Vernazza.....then to Lucca....a side trip to Barga a wee little town....and last to my beloved Florence.   

See you all in October.....Ciao!

Ellen, I hope you have a FABULOUS TIME! How exciting! Ciao and have a beautiful vacation. I love Italy (my father's family is Italian) and we visited with my family when I was younger and when my uncle was living in Naples.

I am so happy for you and I can't wait to hear all about your trip!
