I admit, this blog has been ignored for quite some time but it seems that somehow it is gaining traction again because my stats have been spiking like crazy lately. Perhaps that is a hint to start writing again, I don’t know. I have so many interests that I am easily sidetracked and lately it has been my new Canon EOS 200D camera that has swept me away into a dreamlike stupor.
It has been a rough year with our road being swept away last October in the “perfect storm” and five grueling months hauling groceries etc. on boats and on foot while they repaired it since it is the only road connecting Portofino to the rest of the world!
I won’t lie, this was not exactly how I had planned my winter and near the end of it all I was losing my mind and patience with it. It was my first official year living up on the mountain and that was one hell of an initiation.
Now Spring is here and we are getting an unusual amount of rain and it is colder than usual too. I am pretty sure I have gained 10 kilo just sitting around watching Netflix waiting for the rain to stop. Thank goodness for Ru Paul and wine.
The B&B will reopen soon and for now I am hitting the books hard for an upcoming Italian exam. Yes, after ten years living here I am finally applying myself to getting more proficient with the language. Having an end goal for me is important otherwise I would just float away…it is my Aquarian nature to daydream and procrastinate unless I can see tangible results. This goal involves an exam at the University and exams scare the crap out of me. But sometimes it is good to be scared. It means you are still alive. I will do it this week so, wish me luck and I promise to get back here with the results afterwards. Hopefully with good news.
Buona serata tutti!
