Bad influence

If only I could say that this was­n’t one of sev­er­al sim­i­lar­ly-sized stacks of treats to return with me. It’s for presents. Sure, presents. Except, I can’t give the squished ones away.Dino made me do it. Dragged me all over the gro­cery store.

It’s nice to see you again too. You are so beau­ti­ful, moun­tains. I’m hap­py that after two years apart, you were only shy for a few days before let­ting me see you again. I’ve missed you. Why don’t we do some­thing on Sun­day? I hear the weath­er is sup­posed to be very nice. I would love to go...

Going-away Party Day

Going-away Party Day

Two more days in Switzer­land, and I’m not sleep­ing so well as a result. The stress isn’t too bad though, or else this flu would have hit me much worse. After M ruth­less­ly helped me go through my suit­cas­es last night, they are under-weight with only a few things still to go in. So it is time to...
