Things are better today.  Thanks for all the concern and well wishes–it is definitely most appreciated!

Brought the chewed up clog into our local Dansko store and they said that all was not lost:  for about $20 they’ll send them to the Dansko fixer man and the clog should return as good as new.  Much easier to swallow than replacing the clogs altogether….

Also, no damage today from the naughty labradorian.  Maybe he got wise after hearing me sob for 45 minutes and decided it wasn’t worth it.

I’m listening to The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield on my ipod now.  It continues to draw me in and its amazing how quickly the hours fly by when I listen.  Some people question how I can stand living so far away from town (a 20 minute drive through fields of grass, sheep and cows).  I love the scenery and it gives me time to listen to books or music I like or even talk to my kids.  So far, loving this book.

All in all, I’d still rather be in Italy right now, though…..

These pictures were created using originals taken by Carol and Ed on their trip to Italy 10 years ago.  Now thats a story for another day….

    Glad your clogs will be fixed. Somehow just having a good cry is a relief. My daughter and I were talking about that today. When she was little and frustrated I’d say gee, maybe you need a good cry. She still says that now when things are hard. Anyway LOVE the photo. As usual.

    I have no problem understanding how you manage to live a 20 minute drive away through fields… I live bang in the middle of a bif town near Glasgow (As in Glas-go – makes me laugh just a little when I hear various pronunciations!) Whathelps make it bearable is that I live in a conservation area, in a Victorian villa. The garden is large, with very old fruit trees, so when I sit out in the summer I can imagine I am in some rural idyll….

  3. What a relief on the Dansko front! I love my Danskos, too, but I hate how much they cost.

    I really enjoyed The Thirteenth Tale, enough to stay up quite late one night to finish it. The first couple chapters really drew me in, with the narrator’s description of what essentially amounts to a love affair with books.
