Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends.
I hope everyone has a long list of things to be thankful for today. We are going to have a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner here in Florence tonight. We found a restaurant that serves turkey and dressing with all the trimmings. Jeff likes this but I’m not really a turkey fan, my favourite holiday treat is pumpkin pie. I can’t wait, I haven’t had any pumpkin pie in years – hope it is a good one.
Well I have officially finished my Italian courses and will be leaving next week. Looking back on it, I would say that I am pretty pleased with my progress. I can understand quite a bit when someone speaks to me. My speaking ability isn’t as good as my comprehension, but I think this is normal for me. If I were to do the courses over, I think I would go to the school for one month then take one month off to try to absorb the information then go back to school for another month. I would definitely do the private lessons again for conversation.
As for Florence, I still love it and feel quite at home here. I first fell in love with it 12 years ago, when I came here for a one month art history course. It packs so much culture and beauty into such a compact area. I think I will definitely have to come back.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Jeff and hope you enjoyed your pumpkin pie!!!
Thanks. The whole meal was really delicious…until we got to the pumpkin pie. Oh well, I can try again next year 😉
So sorry your pumpkin pie was a disappointment, but glad the rest of your meal was outstanding. Our guests have all left and I am exhausted. We did have a wonderful day and indeed have much to be thankful for.
Glad you had a nice day. One of the things you are thankful for is probably a dishwasher 😉
