This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.


How to Cope .. When there is no Chocolate

Add this to the list

We are counting down to 2 weeks,4 at the most until we move back to the US and find a house in the country to live in.
I am going from living in the heart of a huge noisy crowded city to a home that will have acres and woods and fields  and perhaps a  forest nearby.
And this house will be the total opposite of the home we now have.
We live in a 100 year old apartment building, that was originally a private home .. a petit hotel.
It has only 2 apartments to a floor , balconies, french doors and 15 foot high ceilings and molding ... everywhere !
I have a "modern" kitchen and bath but the rest of the house is as it was , with new paint and sanded, polished floors.

Now I am going to go to the total opposite.
I will live (probably) in an old house. Farmhouse ? Chalet ? Mid-Century Modern ? 
We are being open-minded, we will see everything and the one that clicks will be The One.

So for now I wait for the time to pass, everything is scheduled, people will pack, people will ship and people will store our things.
We just have to pack our bags , get on the plane and find a hotel when we get there .
Then from there on - it is an adventure.

Everyone should have adventures.
As often as possible.
It keeps you young and interested .... and some might say, interesting.

Except when you go on and on about decorating and colors and kitchens.
That is where it can get sticky.
But we won't worry about that now.

This is a kitchen I love. It has gone into my file of Kitchens that I Love.
It will be interesting to see , when all is said and done, what we end up with.

I'm really excited for you now the time for the big move home is getting close.....hope all goes well. Am looking forward to share your house search later.

I loved my brief visit to Buenos Aires and wish we could have met! It was noisy and busy, as most cities are of course, but it was fun and colorful, the tango dancers exhilarating and sexy and, for my first taste of Argentina, all very exciting.

Yes, everyone SHOULD have an adventure, the more the merrier. I think mine are helping keep me out of the rocking chair on the front porch......and hopefully people find my stories from exciting places in the world interesting. Then again, some people, even family members, don't always want to hear and that is disappointing............thankfully blogging, and often strangers who take time to read, are a way to share the wonders of the world.

My thoughts are with you as you make a change which hopefully will make life even better.

Hugs - Mary

Thank you so very much Mary !
You are right, some family members could care less and that is sad.
I am blessed with family and children who love to travel and we all enjoy each others stories but the extended family can't seem to quit yawning lol

Thank you and the story will continue, just back where they speak English ~ besitos,
