Good day, everyone!
My apologies for the lack of posts this past week, but the truth is I’ve wanted to spend quality time with my adult “kids” and mother before returning home.
The Daughter departed yesterday, and already I’m missing her like crazy.
I’ve spent the better part of my morning packing, cleaning, and organizing.
And I’ll confess I’ve been chugging cheap wine through the process because:
1) I don’t know when I’ll be able to drink tasty wine for less than a euro
2) I find it helps chores seem less burdensome
3) I don’t know when I’ll be able to drink tasty wine for less than a euro
I’m saddened at the thought that, in just a few hours, I’ll be leaving behind the beautiful beach my eyes have feasted on for the past two months.
The other day, this thought prompted me to “tweet” the following: “Two more days left of my vacation! What will I do without the sun, the beach, and the sound of ocean waves?”
A few minutes later, the wonderful lady behind the fantastic blog, “Little Black Dress Diaries” replied the following: “Make recording of waves, bag up some sand, take pictures of ocean and sun, buy beach scented room spray. Set up corner. Dream.”
Not only did her comment put a smile on my face, it made me realize that nothing is out of our reach.
While it may be true that it’s not always possible to be where we want and love to be, we can still dream; we can still use our fertile imaginations to “place ourselves at the scene” and recreate beautiful and wonderful memories.
I bid you all “hasta la vista.”
At this same time tomorrow, I’ll have returned to my little corner of the world, but will bring you more posts related to my amazing time here.
