Heading Home Soon

I started packing today. After being here at my sister's for so long we have really moved in! I have to go through the kitchen and try to remember but I brought to leave here and what I brought to use while we were here but planned to take home.

Even though I did not do a great deal of shopping while we were here I did pretty much re-fill the "kitchen" bag that came with me. The oats, chocolate chips, other goodies and kitchen-wares that I brought to Switzerland have been replaced with salts, spices, caramels, vinegars and other goodies for my own kitchen and to share with my Mom and friends.

I am sad about leaving my sister's house. I love my sister and Nico and it has been great spending as much time with them as we have. Of course, I could have used more time with my sister but, that is always the case. I love Switzerland and I love their house. I hope that Steve does end up with a postition in Europe that we will be able to live close to Jenny and Nico.

We have had wonderful travelling experiences since we've been here. I still have posts to write about my trip to Gruyere with our friends, my trip to my favorite sculpture garden at the museum in Martigny and about our travels to Prague and Germany. Those posts will come once we get home and have a few days to settle in. I don't expect that I will post again before we leave here.

It will be good to get home and at the same time I am sad to leave.


  1. I can see how you'd be sad to leave that house. What a beautiful place! And I'm glad you got to spend some time with Jenny and Nico.

    But it's understandable that you'd be longing for home. No view of the French Alps, but it will be nice to sleep in your own bed. :)

    I'm looking forward to hearing about Prague and Germany. I've really enjoyed your blog.

  2. I concur with Edsel ... whether you return to the States for good or you stay over in Europe, you'll always be leaving someone behind. It'll be good to see you and Steve when you get back. Have a very uneventful trip home. :)

  3. Nico has been trying to convince Jenny to let him have an addition built on the house. Now he can go for the kill because he has said how cool it would be to have us here if Steve ends up with a position in Switzerland. Ha, ha, ha. It's nice to be loved.
