Ten things I wish I could learn instantly

First and foremost I wish I could master a foreign language especially Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and German.  Hmm--I don't want to forget French!

2. Bake a tender, chewy healthy loaf of bread.
3. Drive a stick shift.
4. Ski and not break any bones.
5. Patience. 
6. Knit a sweater that fits perfectly.
7. Only finding the good in others.
8. Playing the piano.
9. Moderation in all things.
10. Endless capacity for compassion, love and service.

Where Have I Been????

ITALY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I had the great fortune of visiting Italy.  My sister and our husbands went on a tour from Rome to Venice.  I can't pick a favorite city since they were all wonderful--Rome, Cascia, Assisi, Sienna, Florence, Pavia, Milan, Padua and Venice.  Miles of walking--my fitbit was going crazy.  It recorded the hills as stairs that I climbed. 
We returned yesterday after two weeks.  Jet lag has gotten the better of me. Does anyone have any secrets to recover?
Throughout the coming weeks, I will probably sneak in a photo or two just so I can reminisce a little.
As much as I am looking forward to getting back into my routine,  I am going to miss my Italian adventure.
