Time Sure Flies!

My little angel in the world.

This morning was a trying day for me.

My son spent his first two and a half hours at school.

Wow, it sure seemed more like five hours.

Watching him play at the center of his classmates.

And this image of him, so small, standing in front of this huge door.

Time sure flies!

After our day of rain I encountered this cute lumaca or snail. I was later told that this is the type that is good to eat. I have always thought escargot to be a delicacy.

After huge rainfalls in Italy I have occasionally seen older farmers walking around with their pails collecting snails. Even though lately they have not been found in abundance as once before, many people still collect and eat them as a tradition.

One has to have vast knowledge in their preparation, some of the contents of their stomachs can be toxic to humans. Therefore it takes days to properly prepare them for a meal.

Snail shells have been found throughout archeology to have been eaten since prehistoric times. The Romans considered escargot as an elite food.

They are low in fat and high in protein. But, I think I will pass, I like my image of the cute lumaca!

A Quiet Spot.

This is another one of my favorite spots. It is an amazing rock garden!

I love how the ancient walls encase it.
