Raining ALL DAY. Have I moved to the UK???
Yes, the laundry is STILL on the line.
Took the dog out for a mandatory walk. He just hadda go...and saw a few amazing things, a field of poppies blooming in someone's orange grove. Lovelylovelylovley.
There was a car along the way that had a sticker in the back. You know those "baby on board" stickers...
This one was a "fiesta a bordo"! Complete with a drawing of a happy drunken looking guy hanging off the sign....
We were supposed to go into the neighbouring middle-sized town to look for shoes, and pants for the kids, and a couple of other goodies for the man...the steady rain put a damper on that one though. Old towns are beautiful and all, but I have become a wimp. It's official. Walking dripping through a town and going into stores to try on clothing while you are cold and soaking wet is
The kids were thrilled with my decision.
We have sat around, done drawings, read aloud, tackled some of the homework from school, studied Catalan, yaddah yaddah yaddah. Quiet day.
I've also been working on booking tickets to go back to Canada for the summer. We are strangely complicated between the mixed schedule, the man cannot come till a month after the girls and I go, the dog, and the mishmash of tickets we have...It takes so long and costs so much I just hate it. Bleah.
I found this new blog that I really like Fish Feet she is a Canadian paleontologist PhD candidate(?) at the University of Bristol studying the development of well, feet I think, and it is being guest hosted by her PhD buddy who is studying something bafflingly involved about rare volcanoes....it is funny, and you come away with little gems of knowledge, like the problems of defrosting a thirty three foot long, 1100 lb giant squid or, a video about stoned spiders I know you will like that one Trish. They even just finished a volcano beauty contest. What more can you ask for!
The kids are at the table eating popcorn and reading, the dog is asleep at the kids feet. He went over in the hopes of fallen goodies but apparently got overtaken by a big case of the sleepies. The dog just got up and stretched. Since getting him, I finally get that downward dog pose in yoga. He does a much better one than I can ever imagine doing.
