It seems impossible to say, yet the reality is, we are only five dodo’s away from returning to our second home in beautiful Portugal. The summer and fall have been enjoyably busy with having company, making visits, Marc’s exhibition (which was a huge success), and the daily grind. It’s flown.
This last week or so we’ve been readying the house for our absence, taking care of the all and sundry things that need to be put in place and today we packed one of our suitcases, locked it and placed it by the door!!! It helps make it all feel real.
We will leave here early Tuesday morning to head to South Western Ontario, a long six hour drive. Let’s hope we don’t get any bad weather, especially wet snow! We have a special dinner planned for Wednesday with a small group of loved ones then Thursday we head to the airport in Toronto.
I am hoping to keep some sort of blog/commentary again this trip. If you’ve received notification of this post through email it’s because you were signed up in previous years. I would ask you to send me a quick private note to let me know if you wish to keep receiving emails or not as my plan is to go through my list of subscribers and delete a bunch as I don’t recognize many of the addresses in there. Thanks in advance for that.
In the meantime, for any of you snowbirds who are lucky enough (like us) to get away for some, or all of the Canadian winter, safe travels. For those of you who have chosen to stay home, enjoy the stay, be warm and safe.
