Last days in South America, explored Rio a bit and relaxed and swam in the rooftop pool. Then flew from Rio to Toronto, Toronto to Paris, then a train from Paris to Avignon for my sister’s wedding in the south of France.
Mostly still disconnected! But a little more progress on The Secret Project and some client work. Lining some other things up.
Reading Essentialism. Finished the Marrying Mr Darcy series (I had started to hate it but was determined to finish it – the times seem to jump about making it hard to follow), and read The Cake Shop in the Garden.
