A Beautiful Day To Be In Carlos Paz

The sun came out and that fresh-earth-after-rain-smell is intoxicating. I'm feeling so refreshed! [The coffee from YPF may have helped, too.] I spent most of the morning checking out some great Spanish websites and printing out verb-related info. If anyone is interested in learning Spanish, these are very helpful: spanish.about.com, studyspanish.com, and spanishbooster.com.

My hubby made a most delicious lunch. He peeled and sliced some orange squash (calabaza) into a casserole dish and poured a mixture of egg and milk over it and then topped with some sausage (a substitution for the bacon we'd normally use) and baked until done (about an hour). Yum! Plus a salad to go with it.

Now he's off for an afternoon at the aerodome! I'm so excited for him. Marcela knows a veterinarian whose hobby is flying so Ivan stopped to meet him this morning and Luis invited him to go along this afternoon. I guess Luis flies just about every weekend. And from experience with the hubby, I know these guys just love hanging out around airplanes.

I'm taking a break for tea and chocolate before going back to "mis verbos". And maybe a walk, too. The day is too beautiful to let it pass by without a walk. Ah, life is good!

And one of those websites, or all, should have info about how to access Spanish characters with whatever type of computer you have.
So glad you're having a beautiful day and enjoying being a student. That is Kristie's near-full-time occupation now too...pero no en espaƱol.
Very exciting about the flying connection for Ivan.
One of these days you will find your quilting connection/s.
Whatever happened with the walking club?
