Yesterday there was nothing on my desk

Yesterday was a holiday here so I didn´t even turn the computer on. I spent most of the day reading and knitting. And then watching a movie. And that was it. I love it when I can laze like that and holidays in the middle of the week are the absolute perfect excuse.

Maybe my knitting will show up later on my desk. And I´m very happy about the reading part too: I´m reading a book in german, and so far so good! I thought it would be a bit more difficult but at this point I didn´t have to check the dictionary every third word. I don´t understand each and every word, but, then again, I don´t have to.

I still have german homework to do as this semester we´re preparing ourselves for an exam and our teacher gives us lots of material to review and study. That´s good, it´s like gymnastics for the brain. And knitting is like yoga for the brain.

Oh, I love holidays!

Ontem foi feriado cá na Argentina. Aproveitei a pausa da semana para ler, ler, ler e tricotar, tricotar e tricotar. Sou principiante no tricot e portanto ainda perco algum tempo a adaptar as instruções da revista às minhas medidas, a ajustar a tensão da linha, etc etc. Mas divirto-me!

No campo das leituras, estou a ler um livro em alemão, no âmbito da preparação que temos de fazer este semestre para o exame que se avizinha. Ler em alemão não é inédito para mim, mas também não é totalmente evidente. Apesar de tudo, está a ser mais fácil do que pensava e estou a gostar da história do livro.

Valham-nos os feriados à quarta-feira para uma bela pausa no meio da semana. Sabe tão bem!

Midweek holidays are really special gifts. Glad to hear you were wise enough to use it as a holiday too!

I'll wait to see the knitting take shape. Fall is coming for you!

Midweek holidays are so good, aren´t they? Fridays and Mondays are good too, but then it´s "just" an extra weekend-day.

Midweek one can really appreciate the holiday-thing, right?
