I could spend every day right here at Poggio Etrusco. I don't really need to go anywhere. But, when I do get out, it does make me happy. Yesterday I had the 'opportunity' to drive to Pisa airport to pick up my cousin's daughter who is having a summer vacation here on the farm. As always, I did the 'Nora Jones thing,' which is to take the long road home...past glorious fields of sunflowers. Every signpost called to me: Bologna, Viareggio, Artimino. I need more hours in the day!
And, today, back to work! Trying to refine the Tuscan Scrub, an exfoliant/moisturizer using my organic olive oil leftover from last year, blended with Sicilian sea salt. My feet have never been silkier! Today I am picking lavendar to dry and infuse in the mixture to see how that works.
