Wednesday, May 31, in Barcelona

After a weekend with temperatures in the 30’s, this morning was extremely pleasant to me. It was 13 C and because of the humidity levels, you could see your breath. I thought it was great but it’s going up to 21 C today and the sun is already starting to crack the cloud cover. Toronto has gone the opposite way with weekend temperatures in the teens and current temperatures in the 30’s, go figure. Anyhow, we got up, or should I say, I got up to get ready to go to the gym. Alex, all cuddled under mounds of blankets decides that since it’s her birthday, she doesn’t have to go to the gym. It didn’t take all that much for me to get back into bed and sleep for another two hours. There goes another day. When we did get up, we went to one of our regular cafes on Diagonal and had coffee and a bocadillo. After that I walked Alex to her bus stop and watched her go off to work. I’ll skip school today and meet her at 1:30 at the archives. We’re going to a restaurant down by the beach, called Agua, for her birthday then I have to get back home. I have an exam tomorrow, 2 hours of Spanish testing, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek. For her birthday, I gave her one of the most romantic gifts she’ll ever receive, a Polar heart monitor. That’s what she wanted to measure her exercise intensity. Anyhow, here’s a photo, from our balcony, of today.

Have a great day and Happy Birthday Alex
