It's snowing today.
Not the glorious run-out-and-make-snow-angels sort of snow; it varies between slushy mush and hail.

two days ago were lying in the grass - - a gentle spring breeze blowing the pink blossoms off the trees (see, here's a picture of my own little pink blossom to prove it - - and the hat really wasn't even necessary - - it was just extra precaution)
and it was good to be outside. it was good because that was where everyone else was, and our quick trip to the park ended up lasting a couple more hours than we though it would - - because we saw Amaya and her husband Jesus,
and Amaya introduced us to her mom,
and then then Jesus introduced us to his older sister,
and then to his younger sister Maite and her husband and kids
and we talked about all sorts of things - - both trivial and significant
and they mapped out a tour of Navarra for us - - outlining what towns we should visit and what food we should eat, and then they promised to take us by the hand and take us there themselves on some sunny Saturday afternoon (or day, rather; there were a lot of towns on that list)

it was a beautiful afternoon
but the abuelo was right when he told us that morning that is wasn't good for the trees to be blossoming because it was going to snow . . .
