Right now I should be finishing my packing, but instead I am blogging. On Tuesday morning I will be flying from Vancouver to Toronto to Rome......I can't wait! For one thing, this is something that I've thought and dreamed of for a long time and can't believe that September 3rd is already here. Another reason why I am so looking forward to going is because it is in the mid 80's there while here at home it is raining and cold. I am not going to miss the wet climate here......I am going to be able to enjoy some more sunny weather in a place that will hold many memories for me for a long time.
I will be meeting my son in Rome and for three days we will be doing all the Rome sightseeing we can fit in. Then, I'm off on a train to Cortona for my Sally Jean Alexander workshop in the hills of Tuscany. If any of you have seen the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun", this is the town that I will be visiting for 8 days. We will be making a candelabra chandelier and also going on some day trips to antique markets and such. Then, I am back to Rome to spend another two days on my own and then back home to share my stories. I only wish the flight wasn't 15 hours long!
This will be the first time that Lola will be away from me and I hope that she survives me not being at home. It is going to be a big change for her.......maybe she'll bond with the rest of the family!
So, "Ciao" baby and the next time I post I will be in Rome......
