And it's raining. Not hard. But it's raining. I have to motor over to the weather channel and see what's up, though it seems to be lightening up, even as I write this.

I woke up at 5 AM and convinced myself to stay in bed for a little longer. At 6 AM, the Mouse came in, crying. I think the sound of the rain on the house frightened her. So I've had a good snooze cuddle with my girl. I think I needed it more than her. Right now, she's still asleep in the big bed with Daddy.

Last time I did something like this was back in 1999 when I went off to Sundoor to walk fire for two weeks. It was the same time of year, first two weeks of December. Early December is a good time for me. Here I am, ready to head off to a different kind of fire. Good thing I'm a firewalker.

I already miss my family and I'm still here. Silly, but there it is. At the same time, I want to fill my suitcase like an itinerant Santa while I'm in Florence and come home with all sorts of little joys, especially for my Mouse. A tribute to the Auntie Mame, gypsy personality that I've never really had. Just ask my sister.

I won't be wearing colorful skirts and bright scarves, but for this once, I'm going to at least try and get comfortable with a gypsy side of myself. Keep your eyes peeled for her/me.

We'll be the blond in black with the matching black bags.

Update, T Minus Four Hours and Counting:

I'm off in an hour and going off line now. Will post next from the road.

Thank you. All of you. From the bottom of my heart.

Do you want milk? Water?

Sit still! Do not bother the lady!

It was said in Spanish, but it is the same thing, no matter where you go.

I had to laugh. Clearly, Someone did not want me to feel too lonely.
