Birthday, Catalan Feast and The Moon

What a treat to share my birthday with the Barcelona branch of our family, though, sadly as I write my birthday is not to be shared by our Grandbaby twins who have still not arrived. I have firstly been spoiled with a delicious breakfast and some lovely presents of pashminas, my favourite perfume and some gorgeous earrings. The little terracotta bear is a Brown sugar bear from the Atlanta branch of the family. It is for keeping biscuits crisp or soft brown sugar moist!

Then, after a walk in the sunshine, a scrumptious Catalan lunch was brought over by some very good friends of the family, all traditional foods of Cataluna. Just look at the feast on the table.


Another walk took us around the block where we spotted a nearly new moon. We needed the extra walk after that wonderful lunch to make room for the special Senegalese meal which we suspect is coming along tonight as we have spotted the ingredients in the kitchen. Photos of that meal tomorrow! I have been told that today I have the day off. D is doing the cooking while A is encouraging her babies to enter the world!

Another Sculpture, Fountain and Dog Parking

We went looking for another of the sculptures by Jessour Agustson today and found one of a child feeding the pigeons. When there is water in this pond, she will look as if she is getting a drink of water. I would love to see her reflection when there is water present.

On our walk back we found a fountain playing in the sunlight.

Just down the road from where the family lives is this charming sign.
