Assisi, Italy

meet st. francis of assisi
His tunics and other relics.
sections of the original church revealed
temple of minerva

assisi was a charm! 
green rolling hills and blue skies 
and monks with red prayer books!

still florence


my florentine hand-made journal

Donatello's 'Magdalene'
Brunelleschi's Funerary Mask
Stone mason tools
Starting to feel better.  Sorting pictures. This is still Florence.

a little bit of arezzo and florence

Madonna and Child, Filippo Lippi

Michelangelo's "Pieta"
Vecchio Bridge
i've been hit hard with every possible flu symptom.  i can hardly
stand to sleep anymore.  so i'm trying to stay upright now. 

these are pictures of arezzo and florence, the first part
of our trip.  everything is ornate and magnificent. 

wishing you a beautiful resurrection weekend.

birthday butterflies

b-day gift from my love - giovanni raspini silver
it's my birthday today and i'm not feeling well.
achy, chest congestion and tired.  greg & i both
were victims of the airplane germs.

i'm baking apples - italian style, right now.
and we're going to catch up on some favorite 
shows: big bang theory and doc martin.
i need laughs; i have love. :)
