Fall break is almost half over and with the knowledge that I am halfway through a little homesickness has started creeping in. So I came up with 2 ways to deal with it.
Step 1: Carve a pumpkin for Halloween
This is Leonard’s Innards
This would be Leonard
(to whom the innards belonged to)
Isn’t Leonard cute all lit up with his unibrow??
This is Leonard from our apartment window
(he’s on the left)
Step 2: Throw the 10 Euro weekly food budget out the window
and fix a 5 course dinner over a 3 hour period
Course 1: Egg drop soup
Course 2: Refried beans
Course 3: Steamed Veggies and Pasta
Course 4: Peach Jello
Course 5: Chocolate Pudding
(Jello brand from home!!)
Mom, you would be proud…I’ve taught these girls several dishes to cook (ones that I’ve learned from you) and Luisa loves your life lessons dad such as…if you have to ask how much it is, it’s too much and you can’t get fat off of free food.
But enough reminiscing, it will only make me more ready to come home and I have not yet finished here yet. I wanted to go to Fiesole today but due to inclement weather, I was unable to so I will try again tomorrow.
My friend from Paris is coming Wednesday and we will be touring Florence of course as well as Rome, Assisi (I’ve been waiting about 10 years to go back there), and possibly Venice this weekend before she leaves Sunday. I can’t wait to see her!!
