This one was a challenge: a history of Spain for children, which is great for my purposes as it covers only the highlights (that's usually all I'm looking for). I also like it because it ends before the Republic, Civil War and Franco years, which means that it glorifies King Alfonso XIII before his fall.
Anyway, it took some searching to find it. After emailing the museum shop of the Alcazar de Segovia, where I purchased the one I originally had, and a bookseller in France, I found it on Amazon.
Sorry for the poor quality photo, but there you have it.
This is a basket made by Girl-child from old t-shirts that will be used for ... yarn, of course:
One of Auntie's cousins brought cookies and strawberries for treats while visiting the other day. Great choices. Auntie is doing quite well after surgery. I'm hanging out in the Wilds of Bloomington to help out a bit while she heals.
Bacon and avocado sandwiches to go with the strawberries - yum!
Did you know that they glue the incision together for mastectomy patients now? I guess it heals well and the scar is not so unsightly. Kinda cool.
