Quiet day so far, up early, yummy food, I managed to put in an hour doing yoga on the terrace, and I've got the third load of laundry done. The man in having a nap, the kids are (voluntarily) cleaning and organising their rooms...they're finally rested enough to make it feel like their home for who they are now.

Gotta study some Catalan, though my ability to speak is whizzing right back....I'm gonna walk the dog with a friend, play some basketball with youngest, tidy a bit more, cook a relaxed dinner...some swiss chard and I think a spinach frittata are in the offing....sounds yummy.

Gotta love a quiet day when you all need one.

Tomorrow, BCN and Ikea. Yee gods.

We have so much yummy fruit right now.


....later........ someone found this site by searching google, well a lot of folks have, but this person typed in, "sharkbait juggler" I wonder what they thought when they got here, and how on earth that relates to me?

Can you imagine typing that into google ever? Someone has. Hi out there, hope you liked the site. I would go into sharkbait juggling cautiously. Really cautiously. And in Kansas. Good place to practice. just sayin'.

....later still......someone else came after googling toilet seat cleaner amsterdam. I imagine they were disappointed by something, no?

Sounds like a wonderful day - enjoy it while you can, before things return to the realm of hectic!

Spinach frittata - sounds delicious.

Carla said...

A lovely day for you sounds blissful! Enjoy it all!

enjoy the yummy fruit. 5 to 10 servings a day!

Boo and Trev said...

That's Google whacking! You type in an unlikely combination into google with the aim of getting only one hit!

oreneta said...

Boo and trev, so does that mean I've been whacked or I am the whacker?

oreneta said...

Beth, I was actually thinking about that when I was cooking. It is going to get mighty hectic mighty soon.

Carla, we completely did. ahhhhh.

elP, I think I am up to about 10 to 15 today, no fridge, warm day, must. eat. fruit.

Boo and Trev said...

I think you are the wackee. There's a british comedian who did a whole stand up show and a book about it. (It was quite funny actually)

kate said...

Wow, what a lovely-sounding day. I hope you enjoyed it!

Yes, those Googel searches are funny.

Going to Ikea is the same the world over - *gah* - stimulation overload.

Google searches are a hoot aren't they?

oreneta said...

Boo, there is a whole book about google whacking? Weird.

Kate, it was searches are plain weird...some strange folks out there, or bored folks...

Trish, the crowds today, goodness gracious, I have NEVER seen anything like it. NEVER. Horrible. Literally like walking through Bloor subway station in rush hour, the whole. way. through. The line ups to pay were mind-numbing. OMG. And the line up for food went out of the restaurant, so we were starving too.

Ah well. we got some stuff done that needed to be done. The delivery comes tomorrow!
