My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

It's Tuesday !!



Today is a bit cooler, thanks to big ... beeeg storms and heavy rain and lots of thunder and lightening.
They really know how to do Thunderstorms here in Argentina .. especially heavy on the lightening.
I remember how Pup would sidle a little closer next to me, often ending up sort of melded to my side or with his head, chest and as much of him as he could get, in my lap ..
Mama always Made It Better.

With cooler temps, I have re-newed energy and while I am still sitting here at 10:40 AM  , in my nightgown with coffee on the desk , I do have Plans for the day.
It is good to have Plans.

The bakery is open.
Fresh, sweet, yeasty Almond Croissants.
Soft , melt in your mouth Pomme de Chausson .. those are lucky to make it home .. before Someone eats them all, right out of the bag .. arriving at the door , with little crumbs on the blouse, perhaps a crumb or two on the face .. that silly,  sugar high glaze  showing in the eyes.

We have banking to do which means I will stand there and be bored waiting in lines, although my husband is the one who actually does Things like this.
I have retreated into the world of those who Don't Understand Anything .. the language, what to do, which account, which teller, why don't you just do it , it is easier for you ?

We have someone coming to visit at 4:00.
I should have time to go out and take some photos and perhaps buy some flowers.
I am planning on getting great bunches of these long stalks of waxy white flowers that are called Jasmine here.
They smell like jasmine, which is my intention .. the whole house will have vases full and should smell sweet, like a garden  ... or like a funeral home, we will see.

Things are going on here that have the possibilities of Another Great Adventure .. time will tell.

Soon, I will tell.
For now, wishing you a Happy Tuesday and remember, Sugar is Good for You.

Jane & Lance, it turned out to be a lovely day. A bit warm but not too warm to say no to a lovely tea in a sweet little cafe.
Then wandering through the neighborhood, ending up in a pretty Wine shop.
