Well, November has hit us with a bang...


That would be lightening, thunder, hail, wind and other fun side effects of Mother Nature PMS'ing.

The last night Lucy has woken me up no less than 7 times (yes, I am counting) while Luigi sleeps like a baby with no clue of the tempest going on outside.

She also smells about as bad as a dog can smell, and there's no hope for trying to change that as long as the torrential downpours continue.  Why is it she wants to sleep in the mud?!  Can't wait to give here one of these again...


The garden is now a pond and all of the drains are plugged by the falling leaves.  Water is spilling everywhere. Ironically, for some reason, we have no water in the house this morning. Ahhh, Italia.  At least I got some great, winter photos of Portovenere...



4 days (and counting) until our trip back to Cali!

That doesn't sound like fun!! Oh yes my husband would sleep through it all as well..

Yes nothing worse than a smelly dog, hope you got your water sorted to give her a shower :-)

Have a safe journey and a good trip back to Cali :-)

la liguria ha avuto la peggio in questa ondata di mal tempo; spero passi presto ed, egoisticamente, spero anche che il Po' se ne stia tranquillo tra i suoi argini.
Buon viaggio e divertiti :)

Megalina!! Lucy loo is so cute. Great photos! Ro and I talk about our long lost love Lerici all of the time. I am waiting for Annika to age a couple of more years and we will be heading back...maybe even with hubby in tow. Thanks for the great pictures and the great blog.

You made great photos, I'm very impressed and the story about no water in the house but more than enough outside is very funny.
Go on!
