El sol está brillante hoy pero está frió (the sun is shining but it is cold).
Fall is in its full throes. It is too easy these fall days for a chill to creep into the bones. The season welcomes warm sweaters, jeans and somedays a nice scarf or a knit hat. Promises of frost and snows drift on the winds. With a heavy sigh I lift my hot cup of coffee to my lips and blow softly on it so that the warm fragrant steams pillow in my face before I enjoy that first hot sip. Another sigh and a smile.
If we were having coffee I would ask what kind of warm beverage can I offer you today?
I am sad to say that last weekend’s camping trip didn’t go as I had hoped because I was coming down with whatever cold my children are getting over. I ended up sleeping a bit extra and by Monday I was in no shape to go into work. I was describing myself by saying, “Jo estoy la mujer cansada” (I am a tired woman). I am feeling a bit better now but I think it is going to take a few more days to feel 100%. The pie that I wanted to make did get made but not when I had originally hoped which is okay.
An activity that I did complete while I was feeling under the weather is a piece for the Christmas dollhouse I am still working on. Some of you might remember me sharing my progress with it last November. Anyway, while sitting and resting I needed to putter a bit so I took some pieces I had been collecting and created a nice shelf piece. As you can see from the picture I have an empty spot on the one shelf; I have to get something to fill that spot in.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have completed 6 of my Spanish classes now and I can compose very simple sentences! Jo estoy estudiante contenta (I am a happy/contented student).
I have started to read Terry Brook’s First King of Shannara. I am only about 100 pages and I am happy to say that I am enjoying it. I wasn’t sure when I first started into it but after a few pages I was hooked. Reading time is limited for the next little while so I image at the rate of 1 to 2 pages a night it will be a long while before I to obtain a copy of book two.
If we were having coffee I would ask, ¿Cómo está semana? (how was this week?)
