ICYMI: I Hate Pollen Edition

Brothers with brothers. Aww.

Brothers with brothers. Aww.

Hi everyone!  Sorry so quiet this week.  We had a guest, and I’ve been bowled over by some sort of respiratory thing with a touch of allergies thrown in.  Good times.  I’m hoping things have turned a corner.  Which is good because we have big plans this weekend to check out the Sagra del Cinghiale (Festival of the Boar) in San Gregorio Da Sassola and the Craft Beer Festival in Rome.  If we are feeling super crazy, we may check out the rose petals at the Pantheon for Pentacost.

On the Blog:

Temps are pretty nice these days.  I’m definitely getting use out of these new spring pieces.

Still the best thing on the blog.  Also, I got around to sharing some updates on the boys generally.

I’m slowly rolling out Sicilian content.  Here is an overview of our trip and here is everything you ever wanted to know about taking a ferry in Italy.

If Sicily is too far, how about a day trip to Calcata?  (Wear your long skirt.)

When I’m not gouging out my sinuses, I’ve been doing more reading.  And even some writing.  And probably drinking more coffee than I should.

On the Internets:

My tabs are covered with bathing suits and tutorials on how to use Evernote.  (I am DETERMINED to tame my tab problem.)  I do have a few tabs up about our upcoming Morocco trip.  Exciting for me!  But nothing good to share.

Do you have any big weekend plans?  Do you also hate all the pollen?  Any tips for a trip to Marrakech?

    Brothers with brothers. Aww. Great title for the picture. Thanks for sharing. I was going to note that it could have been titled. “Present and future” or “a glimpse of the future”. I too have some respiratory issues irritated by allergens. I hope you do get to the Pentecost mass at the Pantheon. It must be beautiful.

      The crowds with the kids are the only thing holding me back. We’d need to arrive at least an hour before, and I’m not sure we’d get seats. But we’ll see!

        I understand. Maybe just sitting outside in the piazza and watching the firemen on the roof would be more exciting for the boys! Thanks for being a gracious hostess. I know Tom needed a break.
