Ever since I got back from Italy I've been thinking about how much of a hermit I have become. I don't do it all the time but sometimes...or often...I can turn into a little bit of a hermit. I am an only child and am perfectly happy being by myself. I've always been that way. But, there is such a thing as too much time by yourself. So, lately I've been on a mission to be less of a hermit...and I'm having a lot of fun! I've had lots of different people over to my house, met lots of people for lunch, and all sorts of stuff. I had forgotten how great it is to chat with good friends until the wee hours of the morning.
I still have moments of hermitage and I always will. I kind of need it. But I also don't want to ever turn into an old lady with 80 cats and no friends because I wasn't smart enough to take care of my friendships when I had them. I am grateful for every single one of my friends and love to hang out with all of you even when I'm being a hermit. Thanks!

La casa romantica

I just wanted to share the view from my terrace in Novafeltria. I had the greatest house this year. It was this cute little thing on the top floor over the flower shop. I had my own room and a great roommate. Anyway, we the most fantastic terrace with a view of the "Novafeltria mountain" where the ruins of the fortress light up at night. It was fantastic. Just thought you might enjoy a picture.

So I went to my new ward today (if you didn't already know, I have moved). It was an interesting experience. I had been attending a ward that didn't really have any little kids or young people for that matter. Although, there was always grandkids visiting their grandparents and they always seemed to be well behaved. Anyway, whenever anyone has asked me what my impression of my new ward is...all I can The bishopbric member that was conducting had to ask everyone to take their seats, and then it just seemed noisy. So much so that sometimes I had to strain to hear the speakers. We had a baby blessing today so maybe some of the noisy kids (and parents I have to say) were only there for this week. And don't get me wrong, it seems like a good ward, and I will probably enjoy it...and I know that most wards are a bit noisy with little people. I will just have to get used to the noisy again.
But other than that, it seems like a good ward. I just need to decide whether or not to make sure the bishopbric knows about me...or should I hide and never be found...? ;)
