FIESTA! FIESTA! FIESTA!
It's San Jose and father's day today here in Spain.
Today is a day when we talk about the past,reminiscing a little,memories of our parents prominent on today of all days, as both mine and Sr P's parents have gone from us now. They aren't sad moments but happy ones which we'll enjoy.
Our tribute to our loved ones.
My daughter will be calling in later on this morning as she always does on Father's day and she'll be bringing her Papa a bar of chocolate for father's day.
The bar of chocolate was originally a small bar of chocolate, what she could afford from her pocket money when she was a child, it has increased in size considerably since then and sometimes there are a couple of jumbo sized bars of chocolate. My husband has a terribly sweet tooth and its the perfect gift for him :-)
Cookie, my grand-daughter will be bringing her YiYo ( grandpa in Spanish) whatever she made at school for father's day. Sr P is the father figure in Cookie's life as she does not remember her father. He passed away when she was very young and my daughter became a widow in her early thirties.
It's what I call a quiet day ...a satisfying day ... all is well and my family too.
As mentioned in my previous post and as my swap partner Debi at Busy Little Chicken has posted about the contents of the swap parcel I sent to her, I can now talk to you about my little Mutant Muggaducky that I made for Debi:
|Muggaducky sitting on the tub I used to send the swap bits to Debi in.|
|A spring brooch|
|My first attempt at making a purse|
|You never give a purse without some cash in so I included a vintage 1940s coin|
|and some local pottery from Agost|
Go gently please with your criticism my blog-friends, Muggaducky is very sensitive about his looks!
Happy Happy father's day to all of you who celebrate it today, 19th March
