El Año Pasado
I cannot believe it was a year ago.
We were in Barcelona, having driven from Paris,
and the Netherlands,
zipping through Germany,
and seeing dear Switzerland,
popping back in to France
and then finally driving in to Barcelona... our original, planned destination.
I read a comment on another blog about archaic bloggers... 'only bloggers who "still" write their own html code are archaic.' I am the archaic blogger, so when you see half a dozen links in my post, know that I am writing a lot of code. lol
And tomato on toast.
And just being together.
Remembering that I enjoyed my time here with my mom, that I was eager to return with Geoff and our children.
My first time on Las Ramblas, oh, man... I was so messed up with jet lag, robo-exhaustion, and homesickness... all of those original posts are pretty raw. What a blessing that I could go back and see all of it again, feeling more confident and clear headed.
Seeing these pictures and recalling how much fun the children had... it makes me so glad we made this trip, and I can honestly say I am glad my Mom and I made our scouting trip too... we did good.
Yes, I am partial... I love Barcelona and Villarreal. So, yes I will be cheering for España!!! today!
I will also be doing laundry. Thankfully it will not be by hand.
The little knitting shop I discovered was as much fun, and help, as it was the first time I found it. A year later and we still have lots of wool to play with.
Ah, I don't know if I had a point in writing this post. Just feeling sentimental and grateful, happily recalling last year, our family together, our own little Friducha. Funny, it's even raining today, just like last year.
