April 2022. The Sunny Month Part 2

To be honest I can’t remember much about the second half of April. My excuse, my photo stream stopped loading to my mac from my phone. It did save photos from Instagram stories and nothing else. Looking back on my phone I didn’t compared to normal take as many photos. I did however on my Fujifilm XT20.

Trees started to get dressed

The second half of April wasn’t as sunny, however the flowers made up for it. I saw my first ducklings of the season and Firea de Abril was held for the first time in 2 years so I knew most covid19 restrictions were lifted. Wearing masks inside stopped after Easter Monday. Aside from wearing them in health centres, pharmacies and on public transport, life has returned to how it was pre covid. I think most people have forgotten it ever happened. Scars are still there, I get random flashbacks every now and then of should I be wearing a mask leaving the house, in the lift?, Is the park open past 20.00? It’s amazing how humans adapt.

Flamingos at Barcelona Zoo started nesting.

April 2022. The Sunny Month Part 1

April arrived with sunny skies chasing away March’s rainy cloudy days. The storm clouds hang around at sea looking like fluffy cotton wool sculptures. Almost immediately the trees and plants started waking up and along with the sunny days things starting looking like things would be okay now it’s sunny. For some reason sunny days make everything seem better.

The geese in parc de la Ciutadella had more goslings! More photos below!

Fluffy clouds

The light was amazing. So crisp and so clear. The wind still hang around and there was only 1 I think storm of just out of nowhere tip it down and clear the air rainstorm. Some days the skies were cloud free.

Weekend Friday Favourites. 1.5.2022

Happy May!

I can’t believe it’s May already. This spring has been extension of winter I and feel I lost a few weeks of in-between weather skipping 14-18C of April’s usual weather straight into 19-20C early May’s temps. I’ve hardly looked at the new seasons clothes as I haven’t been feeling them. Too many grey skies. Now the sun’s here, I’m still not feeling ready to look at summer clothes.

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that made me smile or caught my eye this week. 

Goslings and Ducklings

The goslings are nearly all grown up!

Project Light: February. The Short Long Month

February. The short but long month!

Jackdaw

Still finding free places to visit in the city, before it got dark I found myself exploring parts of the city I hadn’t visited for ages, yet are a slight detour down a road I normally walk while in the centre. Along the way I found new art supply shops, graffiti mural walls and free exhibitions making up for the cold and grey days that made this February drag on longer than 28 days. All the photos are from the first week of February.

Pigeon and tree branches matching each other shape

Re exploring the city centre. I think I stop venturing down these streets years ago as they get busy with tourists.

Weekend Friday Favourites

Happy Friday! Spring’s finally here! 

Winter returned earlier this week which was weird as the light didn’t match the temperature. Yesterday it was around 21C when Monday it was around 10C. I hoping I can finally put away my winter coat for a few seasons. It’s nice to be in lighter weight colours and layers. 

Little Dinosaur

Last week was a slow week for favourites hence no Weekend Friday Favourites. This week I have enough to share things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently! 

More Goslings!

This week I saw 2 more geese families! A family of 3 goslings and a family of 2 goslings! That makes a total of 7 baby geese in the park as I’ve seen another family recently with 1 chick. Sadly the family of 5 chicks lost 4. I swear nearly everyone that sees them cries out in awe! 

Jasmine

Almost over night some of the many Jasmine bushes in the parks and along the beaches flowered! Jasmine is one of my favourite flower scents along with lilac. I smelt them before I saw them as the flowers seem smaller this this year. The scent is heavenly! 

Karina More Facial Cupping Challenge

I recently reviewed Karina More’s Face Building Marathon that I’ve been doing for over a year and shared her newly released book to accompany the course. In May she’s releasing her 2nd course on facial cupping. For now the course is whatever price you wish to pay. From May onwards it’ll be a fixed price to be confirmed. Facial cupping can help amongst many things, reduce edema and body fat, detox, improve blood circulation, revive capillaries and recover collagen fibres. To be honest she had me at boosting collagen so I’m all signed up and have my cups ready.
