All in all a pretty good day

Holy Week is upon us and Italy is gearing up for the twin onset of religious festivities and the arrival of the barbarian tourist throngs from the north of Europe. Today we saw a car with German registration plates and two from the Netherlands at the very slow food restaurant in the village. The vacation homes around here that have been shuttered since last autumn are suddenly alive with gardeners and housekeepers in preparation for the arrival of their owners for the States.The radio at breakfast was carrying a broadcast from St.Peters instead of its usual Sunday morning phone-in so there can be no doubting that we are approaching high festival time. For our part we are awaiting the arrival of friends from the UK and are grateful that the weather has turned warm with some light cloud cover - absolutely perfect. The dogs are loving being able to play out in the fields all day without getting either soaked or baked.
