Instead of throwing candy like you do in most parades, they threw grapes. Green grapes and red grapes that they harvested from their backyards because everyone has at least one grapevine in their backyard. It’s really cool here, I really, really, really like it here.
Veronica’s quote for today?
“My cooking is simple because when we make things too complicated we only make it once- it gets too tiring. And never ccok when you are tired. It won’t come out right.”
Dallin says we have pet frogs from River…
There are lizards, grapevines and olive trees EVERYWHERE!

The picture is of me and Nico (my brother). We are smiling at the table of a “pizzaria” which is an Italian pizza place. I had a delicious calzone. A calzone is a type of pizza that is pretty much a pizza wrapped up into a circle-type thing.
We’ve been trying to nail down a theme for our blog series and “Search for Simplicity” or “Living with Less” have comes to my idealistic mind, but really, we are looking for something else. A different way… Diversity? Diversity in food, art, culture, scenery, experiences…I’m like Dolly, I want more out of life for myself and my kids- more flavor, more to learn, more passion, more time to enjoy my family.
The Italians love food enough they never got themselves in the mess we have. But surely we are creative enough to get ourselves out of it?
