A little silliness with my daily dose of rain... And since it's green, and floating in a puddle of water, it seems to fit the weather... >.>
We had about 4 days of sunshine and warmth, and now we're back to cold and rain. >.< This is not shaping up to be a good summer... I'm *definitely* going to need that time out in Italy this year, just to soak up some warmth and sun.
19 more days before Cilli flies to Australia for her 5-month High School stay there. What a strange thought, not to see her for five months. True, we only see each other on the weekends and during school vacations, but still... She's really excited - I'm really conflicted. *gg* Of course I *wanted* her to do this - but now that it's happening, I'm turning into a real worry-wart. My baby, gone for five months... ;__; And when she comes back, she'll have grown, and matured, and turned 16, and probably become even more beautiful than she already is... *sigh*
I guess that's the destiny of parents - to have to let go at some point in time.
Thank the Gods that these days there's email and Skype and Facebook to keep in touch with each other. On the other hand, I remember when I was Au Pair in Paris, writing long, long letters to my folks, and always looking forward to getting the same. It was special, somehow.
It's the weather. It's making me think...
