Getting readyThere's a lot happening in our family right now. We're getting ready for a trip to Vermont in less than two weeks, which involves a million tasks - work deadlines, packing up the house and getting the dogs in the right frame of mind for our house sitters, revising wills, updating insurance, setting up the house alarm, buying a new GPS system, digital piano, lawn mower, oh, and packing. But before that, just two days before we leave in fact, my lovely sister is getting married. Yesterday was spent, therefore, shopping with my mother for the perfect Mother of the Bride outfit. Mission accomplished, we celebrated with tea and a divine chocolate eclair at the local french cafe. You can see the smiles of relief.
A word about this blog. I know blogs are supposed to be artistic, poetic, insightful, profound. But it's likely this blog will be none of these things. This blog is a diary - of our trip and our adventures, and anything else that crops up. I'm writing it for anyone who might be interested in following our travels. If that's you, I hope you will enjoy this.
