FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE

Normal life began on Monday after I had come back from Amsterdam. I had to fill in the fridge and bake a bread, not me but the machine.

I also went to Nicole to report my holidays in Amsterdam and see little Isis, the cat she had adopted from a shelter.



Isis had put on some weight, which was necessary and had taken possession of the whole apartment. She doubtless has become the queen of her domain. She is very sociable and her cross eyed look always makes me laugh.




We also got together for a scrabble first time since a month, because some of us were on holidays. It was warm and wee enjoyed playing outside only one game, the heat made us lazy and we had a long coffee break, actually it wasn't a break because we didn't continue.

The rest of my time I spent thinking of my suitcase for my big trip and wash and put clothes aside I want to take along. Packing a suitcase is not a problem but to think of everything and to forget nothing is another story. I still have two days left to check if I have everything.



Because this time it is a very big trip through 10 countries it needed some paperwork too, for Russia, the other countries were not a problem they are part of Europe and my passport was enough.

It seems that the weather will be very nice everywhere and even sometimes hot ! So I don't need thick clothes. What an exceptional summer we have.

I leave on Sunday morning and from now on I will report about my trip whenever I can, but I am certainly not able to answer your comments !

I am travelling together with a friend who speaks English too and we will come back on August 23.

Your trip does look great, although no doubt you will see some things you know from your past. Summer in Europe and England sounds awful, especially as you have to deal with it often without air conditioning.

Oh how jealous i am of your trip!!

Our youngest daughter is majoring in Russian, along with sociology, at the University of New aha,pshire. She will be studying in Russia all next summer.
Enjoy the trip!!

Enjoy the trip! I imagine the Hermitage in St. Petersburg will be on your list of places.

Isis is a cutie pie.

Hope the big trip goes well, with no complications! That's one part of traveling I don't enjoy - trying to think of everything that might be needed. Isis looks so cute. It would be way too hot here to do much outside, except sometimes in the evenings it cools off a bit. You'll have a lot to talk about at the next Scrabble game after your trip!

How nice to get all sorted out after your trip. I bet your home smelled so nice with the baking bread. I used to have a bread machine but now I cannot eat wheat. So no need for the machine.
You have such fun travel plans. 10 countries? I look forward to seeing your photos. It is nice you are going with a friend.
Have a great trip.

I always forget something everytime I pack, this year it was face cream and deodorant, and pack way too much of everything. My hubby always just rolls his eyes when he has to lift my suitcase. LOL. Enjoy your trip!
