I sometimes despair that I'll EVER understand Spanish. Seeing the words written is so very different than hearing them spoken. My homework was to listen to a song online and fill in the missing blanks.
People, after an hour I had figured out TWO words. TWO WORDS! After an hour. *sigh*
Iff'n you'd like to give it a whirl, go right ahead and try. And don't tell me if you do a lot better than two words after an hour, 'kay?
I was much more successful with my sewing project. Yesterday I finished the matching mother/daughter aprons for my sister and her two little girls. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, considering I didn't have a pattern and made it up as I went along. The hardest part was trying to shrink the pattern to fit the girls. (Have I mentioned math is not my strong suit?) But I think they are about the right size. Hope so anyway! I bought the fabric for these aprons over a year ago. Not setting any speed records, am I? But hey, at least they're done now. And going out in the mail as soon as I get an envelope!
While we're on the subject of sewing...we'd like to make some puppets but the website my co-worker thought would have the patterns charges big bucks. Anyone have a clue where we can get FREE or very inexpensive puppet patterns?
While I was happily cutting and sewing, and ripping out seams (did I just admit that?) and trying to do a little math, my hubby was installing the light fixtures in the living room and bath, running the gas line to the spot in the kitchen where we have a heater now, installing another outlet in the kitchen...AND he took time to make an amazing lunch! He whipped up a yummy asado and we thoroughly enjoyed eating on the back patio. The tomatoes and peppers are from our "garden" (i.e., plants along the wall). We're finding our favorite way to cook the readily available butternut squash is simply to roast or grill it. The sugars caramelize and make it so tasty!
Mondays are always pretty low key as we unwind from the weekend. Most people unwind on their weekends. For us, weekends are usually our busiest. 'Cause that's the best time to hang with people ☺
