Spain Happens Soon

This is a bit of this and a bit of that post.

It has been awhile since I have tapped the keyboard to fill in this space.
Sometimes, it seems that you just don't have that much to say.

Winter has been long here for us Québekers.
On the weekend I drove through snow-covered roads with barely visible tracks and blowing snow
that reminded me of January.
Today the birds are singing and I am hopeful that they are telling us that spring will arrive.....soon.

The cabane à sucre is coming into season here.
Good thing, as we are in need of a new batch of maple syrup for cooking.

It is funny how these seasonal events really mark the year and give us a sense of belonging and stability.

Certain events at this time of year seem so satisfying,
heading out to our favourite sugar camp and buying our supply of maple syrup
is one of them.

We will most likely take some new syrup to our daughter who is living in Spain right now
finishing off her final year of university perfecting her Spanish.

And that brings me to what is really occupying my thoughts....SPAIN.
Yes, next week, we board a plane and head off
for an adventuresome road trip
through Andalusia, Spain.

I have been making some tough decisions about what to take and what not to take.
I know always hard planning for a trip isn't it? :)

I know what I will be searching for and purchasing while there ....
a moroccan pouf ....

and hopefully some lovely spanish pottery....

We have lined up some great stops on our trip
and since I am taking along my camera I will be posting as often as possible
to share this trip with you.

A lot will probably get up on Instagram as well
but I do want to capture and share some of the interesting little stops we have planned.

I am going to document the trip from start to finish....
so I hope you enjoy a little vicarious traveling through us. :)

See you at the airport!!

  14. Hey I didn't know you were on IG. I just found you and followed your account. I've totally been cheating on my blog and hanging out on IG since Christmas. It is a good fit when nothing much is happening in life and all you have is one photo to share ;)

    Now as for the other news - going to Spain is so exciting. I can't wait to see your pics. Ever since my daughter went I've been dying to go. She stayed in a little village near Granada and it sounded lovely as they could hike from there, but they were only a short bus ride to the Alhambra which sounds amazing. Have a wonderful trip and I'll be checking IG to see what you are up to.

  15. I need to read about your trip!


You can leave a comment....totally up to you....Yep, I do love it when you do!
