Gone Fishing


For the next 10 days, I'll be in Italy visiting my mother and my grandfather (that's his tool shed you see up there) and various other members of my Italian family for some much-needed rest and relaxation. I plan on cooking very little, reading quite a bit, and watching as much soccer as I possibly can.

Thank you, dearest darlingest readers, for all your lovely words of encouragement. They've put a spring in my step.
