I just want to collapse on the couch and sleep or read. I feel exhausted. It must be the cold which makes me really hungry and sleepy despite this beautiful sun. It’s chilly but the sun is shining in this part of Italy. So, what’s new? We had a long chat over the weekend and things are much better. We are both tired (mainly because of our respective jobs) and we’re looking forward to the Christmas break even though we don’t have any plan except for visiting his parents. We are going to the mountains for a couple of days, that’s it. I’ll have to work anyway, as I have writing commitments.

So two-three days with his relatives and then I’ll maybe go visiting one of my best friends who lives one hour from here. It’s been a while since we’ve seen each other and I really want to spend one full day with him.

Our dog is really excited today. The gardeners are working outside and he has been running since 9 a.m.!! He is never tired, blessed him. He brings joy and love. I love him so much, it’s even difficult to put it into words.Yesterday he didn’t see me until 7 p.m which is unusual and when I got back he jumped on me with kisses. I know he shouldn’t jump on people but… I can’t deny that I am happy when he greets me like that. The problem is, as you can imagine, that he jumps on everyone.

Anyway, the garden would be sooo empty without him running around, chasing birds etc.

  1. It is weird, in some way…the last three posts seems to me the mirror of my story!mmmhh…
    btw, it is not easy, but if it would it would not be funny, isn’t it? We choose (at least I always say that I choose, but sometimes there is the need to be set some firm points) and so we can modify something. Work…ok, let’s move to the dog: you try to teach them, but you’ll never win. Also because when they jump only because they are happy to see you, we are defeated.And so? better having a jumping dog, that no animals around. Now that I have only cats, they sit on me every time, choosing a way in which THEY feel comfortable. It does not matter if I am working, reading, relaxing. They just want to stay with me. Who am I to tell them not to?

  2. Yes Pietro: I fully agree. However, our dog is far “too” happy if you can see what I mean. He wants to kiss everybody… French kiss everybody!
    Andy: wow, he doesn’t jump on you? But he jumps on F., I’m sure !
