Good morning, FList! ^____^

I hope your monday is as bright and warm as mine? It's really starting to look like summer is finally here. Whether it's to stay, we're not sure, though according to yesterday's weather folklore (it was "Siebenschläfer" - "dormouse" day) we're supposed to have the same weather as yesterday for the next seven weeks. Since it was warm, sunny, pleasant and completely rain-less, I'm hoping that this year, the folklore is right. ^___^

My sister took pics of the girls at our family dinner (posted with her kind permission).

Isn't Cilli lovely? *sigh* She's grown into such a lovely young lady. :) Now all we have to do is get through puberty, and we'll be fine... *coughabitbitchytheyoungladycough*

Winding down on the preparations for Australia. I think we've cleared up the money issue. Also got mail from her host mother about what Cilli is supposed to take with her, clothes-wise. I think we *will* need both the suitcase and the trolley. And I have to clear up the laptop for her, so she has everything functioning well. Then at least we can keep in touch. I'm trying to convince her to give LJ or Blogspot a try, so that she can keep a journal. We'll see...

Doing some writing some today. It's not precisely flowing, but I'm getting words down - on computer? On monitor? On hard-drive? What the Gods do you say to that these days? >.> Since I don't write 'on paper' anymore. We'll see whether I can manage the 1000 that I want to. I can *see* the scene in my head, only the words occasionally elude me... *pokes muse*

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Yes, she is. Now that the date of her flight is coming closer and closer, I don't want to let her go... >.>

Thank you. Actually, the young lady is my daughter. The picture was taken by my sister. ^___^

Cilli is beautiful! And, your niece? is as well. :D Good news on getting things straightened out for her trip. Less headache later on, I'm sure.

Good luck on the writing!

Lotti is sort of an aquired niece... :) Her mother is a school-mate of my sister's and she lived with my folks while she was pregnant, so she could finish school. Cilli and Lotti are only about 1/2 year apart, so they consider themselves to be cousins. :) We're a wierd family... ;P

Thank you. It's going slow... *sigh* But I'm plugging away at it...

She is very lovely! Cross your fingers she doesn't come home with an infatuated Australian boyfriend! :)

Thank you!

There *is* that worry, indeed, because her host-'brother' is 19 (I think). >.>

What lovely girls! Cilli has a beautiful smile!

Thank you. I'm so proud of her.

Both young ladies are very pretty. Your daughter has a super nice smile.

Thank you. Yes, they're both very lovely ladies. :) A bit stuck in puberty at the moment, but we all know that that will pass... :)

Wow... they grow up so fast. *sigh* She really is just beautiful; that's not just besotted Mommy talk! *grin*

Yes they do, don't they? I keep thinking, wait, wait, wasn't it just *yesterday* when she was like... wee small? >.> And then I look at her and she's almost all grown up and lovely and independent and... *sigh*

Thank you... *is so proud*
