The wisteria on the western wall of our house is blooming right now.
We built in a rather large time buffer in Paris, so if there are no schedule problems we'll be able to enjoy a leisurely lunch at the airport before boarding our afternoon flight to the Northeast. We'll be in Albany, NY, for the bulk of the trip. We're spending the middle weekend in Montréal and Vermont.
We both hope to be connected to the internet for most of the trip, so we'll have access to email and hope to continue blogging while there. I may be a little slow in responding to comments, but you will understand.
A good friend of ours has agreed to stay at our house while we're gone and take care of Callie and Bertie. We're very lucky to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the house will be occupied and the animals will be at home while we're gone.
