Waving Goodbye

May 31, 2012

Could I really have named this post anything else! We cleaned and packed up the whole house and just hit the road with a couple of smoked herring sandwiches in tow. Topped with pickles and tomatoes! I also polished off some frozen berries I thawed left from the freezer. They were refreshing! We have started […]

I was awake from about 4-5:30 with irregular plonks against our balcony windowsill that kept jarring me awake. Matt is still asleep! I stumbled down before 9 and made cereal […]
