    Well, yes, I was there, but I want to go BACK!! And I will, eventually. We had 3 days in Barcelona with the boys at the end of a cruise when I was on leave from Afghanistan. Stayed in a lovely boutique hotel 2 blocks from Las Ramblas. I was captivated by the city, and would so love to return eventually. I probably shouldn't tell you how good the sangria is there. And of course, you know about the Paris week 2 years ago. We will absolutely be back there. A week was not nearly long enough to do everything we wanted to do, though we did try! Oh, and son #1 had his 13th birthday in Barcelona, how cool is that??

    How goes the research?

        My question is, how is it that you are able to use a garden hose in the middle of January in Ontario Canada?!?!

        Cheers!
        Hi PBNewby!

        I'm getting excited about the trip
        I'm researching Versailles right now.

        HAHAHAHA! It was really warm on Sunday (for Jan in Ontario) 6 C
        We keep the hose in the basement, that way the water doesn't freeze in it.
        Bring up the hose, hook it up, spray the garage, drain the hose and drag it back in the basement.

          Sounds awesome!

          Research so far:
          My baggage allowance on Air France (Most important thing 1st!)
          The Arc de Triomphe
          And now I'm working on Versailles

            • I worked today. 1st day since Christmas.
              So my Farmer had to take Kiya Kitty for her spay.

              I bought more macadamia nut butter. Greensprout, I don't know if I should thank you or not for the microwave banana brownie muffin recipe or not! I don't add the cocoa and it almost tastes like banana bread...

              Guess what I added to my banana muffin?? After it was "baked" in the microwave and cooled, I put Mascarpone on top. O.M.G. It was almost like eating a cupcake with icing! (But not sweet)




              MORE TRAVEL NEWS!!

              Guess who's going to SCOTLAND in JULY!!!

              My niece is getting married.
              Although we'd love to take the kids, there's no way we can afford to take all 4, so it's just us

                You're welcome? I haven't tried it without the cocoa, but can imagine it would be like banana bread. I added walnut to the one I did last night and it was a fabulous touch.

                I did that too! It's rather amazing. Hubby thought so too.

                      Oohh, nuts! That does sound good.
                      Today I added Cacao Nibs. I'd do it again.

                      I'm really excited about that too. Of course there will be an extended group of about 15? going from Canada.

                      • I worked today. Very easy day as a Drama teacher
                        One student asked me if I was really the supply teacher and I said I was only acting like it

                        I worked on my packing list tonight...

                        Surfer Son went by himself to the travel health clinic. He got his Yellow Fever shot and some Malaria pills. (We paid) Evidently he's going to be quite a distance from the "bad" areas. He decided to get 27 pills (for an approximate 14 day stay) The Dr. told him he could get more down there.

                        I'm working again tomorrow, so I think I'm going to try to go to bed before 11 tonight!!!!

                        Can winencandy do it???

                          How's that going? I'd suggest taking some individual packs of travel sized liquid laundry soap, so you can wash any "essentials" in the sink, thus cutting down on how much you need to pack.

                          Sounds totally reasonable.

                              I've figured out all my "non clothing" items, but I've only decided on 3 shirts so far.
                              And I can't decide how many bottoms to take...
                              And shoes...omg

                              Hmmm, I've read of this practice...but I don't know...does anyone actually DO it??

                              • Easy teaching day again today.

                                Bathed the itchy dogs again. Poor babies.

                                Today is the 11th sticker day in a row!!!


                                The other afternoon, I kept track of how many times I went up and down the stairs while doing laundry.
                                Guess how many steps??

                                344!

                                And I thought I didn't "do" anything that day.
                                (I should do more laundry)
