I am so happy to hear that my little Bro is feeling much better! If he chooses to not return from Italy, I won’t blame him! The photos are just breathtaking! I had trouble narrowing down which pictures to share, so I thought a few photo montages were in order…
I apologize for not having more details about the photos. Jay did not have a great connection. His text messages were coming through mumbled and out of order…or maybe he just had a bit too much wine??? Now that I think about it, that makes a whole lot of sense! I will let our amazing author man share the truth, when he returns…
While Jay is off wine tasting, I will be opening up the hives to observe the honey bees! Feel free to check out today’s post, and see what I discovered!
If you are like me and love insects, today’s title might excite you. But, don’t get too excited! Jay did not catch a really cool spider or a beautify butterfly…Jay is sick! While exploring the wonders of Florence, Jay caught a big, bad “Bug”. This morning, I was happy to hear that he is feeling much better and enjoying Siena. It sounds like there are some exciting wine tours coming up, in his near future, too. Let’s send healthy and positive thoughts to our dear author friend, today!
Let’s take a look at what he was up to, while in Florence…

I thought it was time for an update on Jay! Where in the world is our amazing author man now!? I have been informed that he has arrived safely to Ravello, in the village of Marmorata. The photos are incredible…the perfect setting for a mystery novel, I do believe!
As you can see, Jay appears to be having a miserable time! I think we should all hop on a plane and cheer him up, with wine and gelato!
Happy Tuesday! From what I gather, our amazing and talented friend Jay had a fabulous time in Rome. By the looks of it, he is going to return to NYC in the form of Nutella and espresso gelato! It sounds like it has been his main meal, washed down with lots of extra strong grape juice! My secret agents sent me some stunning shots that I have to share with everyone…
I was told that Jay spent the rest of his time in Rome, at the Vatican. He even had brunch with the Pope. Of course, that is why my secret agents could not take any photos! Stay tuned for more of our Author Man’s exciting travel updates, from Italy!
If you missed yesterday’s post, you are probably wondering why someone by the name of “Roda” has invaded Jay’s blog. Here is the link, if you need to catch up! When the Cat’s Away
Most of you have figured out by now that my little Bro Jay is a city mouse. I, on the other hand, am a country mouse. Although I do enjoy visiting the city, I am most content being one with Mother Nature. Four years ago, I left my career in education to pursue my dream of starting a hobby farm. I have never looked back! I spend my days hanging out with 130+ animals and growing organic fruits and veggies. I also enjoy painting and nature photography. Let’s just say, these are my favorite ways to “horse around”.
Well, knowing my Little Bro might get himself in a pickle, while in London, I thought I would call on a few “secret agents” to keep an extra special eye on him. We all know how much Jay enjoys “horsing around”. He sent me this photo of two horses. He found it funny that they seemed to be following him throughout the streets of London. Ha! If he only knew…
It is a good thing that I have a few friends watching over him. He shared that his hotel room card had not been working, when he tried to enter his room. Sounds like Little Bro might need to back off the extra strong grape juice and actually try entering the room that was assigned to him! (Insert eye roll)
He also is whining about the heat…in London! Seriously? Next, my secret agents are going to be reporting that he is streaking down by Buckingham Palace! Let’s hope he behaves himself tomorrow. The good news is that he has not checked his blog! I am safe…for now. Sleep well…more updates tomorrow!
I love the statement, “When the cat’s away, the mice will play!”. In this case, while Jay’s away, Roda will play! Bwahahaha…. Let me introduce myself. My name is Roda from Growing Self, also known as Jay’s Big Sis.
As many of you know, Jay is off on a little vacation for a few weeks. (By the way, he forgot to invite me. How rude! (insert eye roll – Jay is the master of eye rolling!)
How could I just watch my Little Bro’s blog sit desolate, while he frolics around Europe, drinking amazing wine and mouth-watering pastries?! I could not! Being the more mature and responsible one, I decided to do a little blog takeover. It’s not like he will be checking his blog, right?! I am just helping out a bit, right?! It is for greater good, right!?
So, for the next few weeks, I will be posting right here on my amazing Little Bro’s blog! You will want to check in! I have stories to tell about our talented, author man, Jay. For example, I can say that he has arrived safely, to his first destination. He did appear a bit spent after clutching his teddy bear, ever so tightly, on the long flight to London. But, that’s what little brothers do, right!? I packed his favorite binkie and Mr. Blue Blankie, just incase! I am sure he appreciated me helping out!
That’s what Sisters do best!
Have a magical day!
