Tonight My Heart is in Barcelona

The view of Barcelona from the art museum

I've tried to blog several times this week. I try to keep Buttercupland light and fun and every time I got ready to organize my photographs or sit down at the computer, something happened that was far from light and fun. I was all set this afternoon for a fun post of sights on the streets of New York, when I saw an alert on my phone. Barcelona...and I was glued to the television for hours.

Barcelona is one of the cities of my heart. I've only made one trip there, but I loved it and have been thinking of a return trip. I did several blog posts about my 2011 trip and chose this one to share tonight. My trip to the Mercat Santa Catarina (the fabulous retail food market of Barcelona)  evokes a peaceful day in Barcelona and my prayers are that day returns soon to Barcelona and to every other place sorely in need of peace and calm.

On a happier note...I've been remiss with announcing the winner of the giveaway for The Farmer's Market Cookbook. Joy Nissen, I'm happy to let you know that I'll be sending a copy of this terrific cookbook to you. Congratulations and happy cooking!

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!
