I just got back from an adventurous walk with the dogs and already I'm fit for a nap. Nope. Gotta eat something, make the calls, get dressed in something relatively presentable and make my rounds about the village, including watering my friend Gerit's plants. When I said yes to that, I was expecting a ficus and maybe a fern. Turns out she has about a million plants in and outside of her home. It was too late to turn back. Now I am stuck spending a half hour watering her plants until she returns form Croatia. When? "Oh, sometime before September. I'll call you when I know."
Leave it up to Monday to get me all pessimistic and sarcastic.
How do you all tackle a day full of things you'd rather ignore? All those things that make you say, "Oh ya, I'm a grown up. When did that happen? And is there ever a vacation from it?"
On to more positive things, Angelo's birthday party was fun and relaxed, he loved all his gifts, especially the playhouse where he was constantly opening and shutting the door, completely fascinated. His father taught him how to say 'Ciao, bella!' and it's the most adorable thing coming from a 2 year old. Watching him lick a popsicle brought flash backs of my own childhood, ice cream slowly oozing down my wrist and arm because I couldn't eat it fast enough. It all goes by so amazingly fast. But then, we have the gift of reliving it by watching other children.
Oh! I am having fun trying out things in photoshop and made a little logo, a 'cg' for Country Girl. Me likey!
