Though it seems like we've been gone a very long time, it's still tough to know we leave tomorrow. Off to Rome for a night, and then hop the big bird back to California.
Mixed feelings, all around.
I am anxious to get back into my work routine, finish off the year and get through the rest of the holidays...at the same time, I don't want to go back at all. Just when I begin to feel like I'm settling in here, it's time to go. Sigh. We are so lucky, to be sure. We'll return in a short three months.
In the meantime, I can look back at some sweet moments from the past few days in our beloved Umbrian countryside...
See you soon, Umbria!
|My happy fellow, being, well...happy.|
Relaxing at a favorite watering hole, of course.
|Morning walks were few and far between, what with the short, chilly days of November.|
Still, the days we did walk were lovely.
|"Thanksgiving" with dear friends was a super treat...|
|Lago di Chiusi was other-worldly in this pre-winter light.|
|Dreamy, and then some.|
|Autumn color at Lago Trasimeno.|
|Silver light on Lago Trasimeno...|
|Still trying to wrap my head around these two just cruising along free-style!|
|Our view of Panicale from the fields below.|
Loved the autumn color, all around.
|A group of pre-school kids holding together with a rope.|
At the weekly market. Too damn cute!
|More autumn beauty...|
|A little piece of heaven.|
|Mr. J and his major score at the recycle bins.|
|Perhaps the creepiest "Dumbo" float...ever.|
|Awesome pasta at a little side road truck stop.|
|The fields just starting to turn green with wheat.|
|Today. My feet with big leaves.|
|The Nut is clean, and ready for our return.|
Ciao for now, dearest Umbria.
