|A little peace and tranquility in green- my hosts, gentian, lilies and a peek of a dark perennial geranium|
I began gathering the bags and suitcases I plan to use to get to my dear Seester's house- and there, apparently, I will find a selection of luggage sizes that will appropriately fit my packing needs. Mostly I need to leave room for additions to my luggage while over there. I am thinking a hoodie or t-shirt might be coming home with me! Certainly we plan to ship some of the local consumable items home as a group. And yes, we mean wine! Plus some olive oil/olives as well.
I am getting to the point, now, that I feel like I am somewhat prepped for this trip. Both in terms of having all this stuff together and also in the being aware of some of the things that I am going to see. I did a little looking and one of the things that is a must see during a walking tour of Rome is the Trevi Fountain. AND I discovered that there are several "live cams" there. I am a fan of the Bayfield Inn Live cam, I can be transported there and watch the ferry travel across and just feel generally
I am amazed when I look at the above number of 4! I remember sharing with a few people the fact that I had loaded up a countdown app on my phone- maybe in January?- when there was about 140 days to the trip. Heck I remember knowing that the tour was approximately 548 days away! And it was decided that time would fly and then suddenly it would be only a few days away and I would be freaking out. Lol, oh some people are always right.
I really think that I have enjoyed the anticipation of this trip as much and fully as possible. Doing a little art research has made this particularly rich, and I feel pretty peaceful now. I am just waiting for the mailman and my Amazon order!
I hope you are on your way to a spectacular week, everyone! One that should be filled with some summer time joy! It is my wish for you today.
