Then I had a housewarming party with a musician and a cocktail maker. My house looked gorgeous decorated with candles and red flowers ( whose name I can't remember) I got the internet put in my artist's retreat- and decided to live there in january and february when I have no guests.
Then I have two sets of guests over christmas and new year.
Am invited out on christmas eve and then to a christmas service.
The commune put christmas lights on my house.
I am invited to take part in a craft feste on the 29th of december.
I am not going to be an extra in Ben Hur- but i might be going to be a princess in a carriage in Pisticci.
And next years new years resolution is to travel................
And that is the very, very short version of the last 6 weeks. Next year have plans to expand this blog.
Now for the photos- in no particular order as not quite got the hang of this yet.
And I have so enjoyed painting Dirupo white. today was the last time this year and we were accompanied by accordion music. I will miss it.
