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*
