Once again, it's time for the monthly recap, and I'm linking up with Leigh at HopefulLeigh (I love her blog name!). Although I love Easter, I'm glad March is on its way out - it's been cold. And rainy. And did I mention cold? And rainy? I am ready for some sun! For some spring weather! For my birthday! For a family visit! April is going to be great.
On my nightstand: I'm nearly done reading Teaching Languages to Young Learners, by Lynne Cameron. It might not sound riveting, but trust me - it is! The brain on language is amazing. If you're a language teacher, or your raising kids in a bilingual environment, I highly recommend this book.
I'm also reading The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg, Spanish edition. Normally, I love Nordic crime novels, but it's taken me a while to get into this one. I think it's the translation. And I am so over snow and cold weather. Maybe I need a more springy book...
On Screen: We're watching season two of Touch, and I've been watching reruns of Gilmore Girls. Hooray for English TV time!
On my MP3: Niña Pastori and Estrella Morente, my favourite flamenco singers.
In my browser: Mainly online newspapers, keeping up to date with the Cypress situation.
|look - a tulip in my garden!|
On my plate: Strawberries, strawberries, and more strawberries. Today they're in a salad to accompany orange-honey glazed salmon. Yesterday they were in a fruit salad, and the day before, with yogurt for breakfast. We can't get enough!
In my mug: Coffee. It's cold and grey, and only coffee will do.
On my mind: Poe, Edgar Allan. My secondary class is studying him after Easter, and the first stanza of The Raven is running through my mind. "While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping..."
In my agenda: a trip to the beach! It won't be hot, but it will be warmer than Madrid, and it will be sunny!
On my to-do list: spring cleaning, gardening, and maybe painting the hall.
In my heart: my confirmation partner, a very intelligent, diligent girl who is going to be confirmed in April.
