A Seasonal Update

I would say that this is a seasonal update, but also, as I promised long ago, I’ll kill two birds with one stone, and I’ll make it a gardening update too.

I always thought I would enjoy being a farmer’s wife, but now I am sure of it. Our garden is lovely. This morning, as I was hanging the washing, I exclaimed, “Oh, Papa, I love the way the garden smells!” And it’s true. Think of the sweet fall smell, everything wet and humid, with the leaves falling on the ground, and the ground smelling so fresh and sweet. Then, with the combination of the morning birds singing, and a soft breeze blowing, I was in a dream. I love being outside!

This morning we got a load of firewood, a ton of wood, to be exact, and we had to get it in. We had so much fun getting it in, all together but Mummy (at first she helped too, but later had to go and get lunch ready) and my sister, who was busy. We worked in line, first my older bro by the wood plile, who passed logs and things to my youngest brother (who being only six years old is very strong). Then he passed them to me, I passed them to my younger brother and he passed it to Papa through a big window, who piled the wood neatly at the back of the porch. Some minutes later, when the pile had decreased considerably, we had to go to the back of the pile, and throw logs in the front of it, so we could go on doing the same without Bro having to walk a mile to get the next log… :P After that, we went back to our places in the line, and on and on we went until the pile was done. Working in a normal way, it took us 44 minutes to sort 1 ton of wood, five people working on it. It was fun!

Talking about the zucchini… well, it’s been better than we all expected, even better than Mama expected! In about three and a half months, we got about thirty-five zucchinies from nine plants, and Mummy found seven more this morning, while we worked in the garden. It has really been a very good summer for the garden, not too hot, and quite wet, for Spanish weather… and they’ve grown big, fat and green… they should, now that I say so… :P The first zuchini weighed 1 quilo 150 grams, and it was huge! (That’s 2 pounds and a half, aprox.) My younger brother was very proud, the plants were his, and he had taken care of them, and watered them.

And well, to finish, I have to tell you that today we found two mice in our house… that’s the fourth we see this summer-autumn, and it’s awful to have to kill them. Mice are so cute.

I will tell you again… I wish I could be a farmer’s wife!!

Mantis swim!
Yesterday afternoon my Mummy called me to see a HUGE mantis. It was about eight cm long, that's about three inches, a little more. It was hiding under the entrance sideboard, and our jaws dropped to see how HUGE it was. :P
This morning my Mummy called me and everybody again out to the entrance... where the turtle pool is. In the middle of it there's a rock for the turtle to be and have a "sun bath" whenever she wants. And happy as a May bee, in the middle of the water, on the rock, was the mantis, busily washing her face (we knew it was a "she" because "he" mantis are smaller). Now, the question was, HOW ON EARTH DID SHE GET ON THE ROCK????
Soon we had our answer. The mantis got into the water, AND BEGAN TO SWIM!!!! Would you ever say it, a mantis SWIMMING! We were all amazed. It was swimming with her back legs, and the two front ones. It was really surprising to see that!

In Gualadajara...

Well, here it is, as I said...

We had a wonderful weather those two days we were out, and it was a real blessing. Our reason to go was to meet some Christian friends my Papa met once there, which we hadn't met.
We woke up at seven in the morning Friday morning, and quickly prepared ourselves for the trip. We didn't even have our breakfast at home, we would have it in the car, to save time.
But things not quite always come out the way they are planned. We planned to leave at eight, so we could get to our friends' house ready for lunch, but when we were all in the car and ready to go, we discovered that my little brother's security belt was damaged. At first we thought that we would have to cancel our outing, but God is merciful, and after an hour or so, and much praying and being nervous, Papa finally fixed it, and (whew!!), we were on our way, thankfully.
We did see some of the wonderful creations of God. We saw a tremendous lot of HUGE eagles, we saw big and endless, huge mountains surrounding them, we saw... but I am getting ahead. Let us continue our tale.
We DIDN'T get there in time for lunch. When we arrived at Sigüenza, where we were to stay, it was past four o'clock pm, and we were all starving hungry. First we went to take our place at the hostal, leave our bags and the stuff we didn't need, and THEN came the best part, when we met our friends at their house. I was nervous, don't ask me why... but they are a lovely family, and I love them very much already. They are Felix and Sandra, and their son, Joel, and teir daughter Marylin.
We had a very nice time, and while we ate our lunch (huh, late-lunch) we talked together and joked and laughed.
Later in the afternoon they took us to see the very old but very big Sigüenza Castle. Oh, it was beautiful, and it had such a view! Mary and I were fast friends, and she took me to see the village a little, and to buy sweets. After that, when it began to get dark, we went home and she showed me her bedroom, and we talked together, mostly about stars... she likes stars very much, and so do I, so we had a nice chat about them. We just spent all the evening there, and when it was time to go we went back to where the hostal was.
After that we had to have some supper, so Papa, my older bro and I went somewhere to buy sandwiches. It was fun to eat in a place that wasn’t ours, and to sleep in a strange bed. Mummy called it a short adventure. It was FREEZING cold at night there (we were very high on a mountain), and my bed had five bedcovers to keep the cold out. :S But I tell you, it was fun, cold, and wow, didn’t I enjoy it!
When next morning we got up, it was still early, and I remembre dressing at the same time I shivered like crazy…
Then we went to have our breakfast at Mary’s house. Ohhhh, yummy! It was delicious. We didn’t have what we usually have here, it was so diffrent (all but the milk-and-chocolate drink… I can’t be parted from that!).
That day was mostly all walking and ejoying Trillo, a place where there were lots of waterfalls and old stone houses. I love old places. It makes me feel inspired, and I like it so much. I have lots of photographs of all the waterfalls, and the castles, and the old solid wood dors, beautifully carved… ahh, it was beautiful!
Then at lunch we went to a restaurant, where they did very good meat. I had such a huge and tasty piece of meat!! And a very big salad, with lots of tuna, olives, tomatoes, asparagus, eggs, and everything I could dream of. Oh, it was delicious!!
It was about half past five pm when we left the restaurant, and then came the good-byes, for we had to leave for home. I had had a wonderful time!
During our way we stopped mny times to see something that looked interesting. My sister and I had a very funny time trying to see who did the biggest chewing-gum “baloon”, and when we stopped to see the river Tajo I took some wonderful photos of the view. Since it is autumn, the place near the river was FULL with falling leaves, and yellow, orange and red trees. I took the advantage to collect all the autumn leaves I could… It was so pretty! Sometimes I don’t know how to descrive such beauty, and I really think that God’s creation is awsome! “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.” Psalms 19:01
We actually got home at half past twelve am, but it was all an adventure! I hope we can repeat it again, and that I can see them again soon… :P

We're Almost There...

...and tomorrow we are going to Gualadajara!
Oh, I'm so exited. We are going there for only two days, but I'll meet for the first time a friend I have, and we'll be staying in a hostal, and we are going to visit a huuuuge castle... AND I'LL KEEP YOU UPDATED! :D
Next Monday I'll post a post about it, if I can...
For now, I'll leave you here.

P.S.: The weather is cooling down... and I'm happy!

Psalm 117

O PRAISE the Lord, ALL ye nations: praise Him, all ye people.
For His MERCIFUL KIDNESS is GREAT towards US: and the TRUTH of the Lord endureth for EVER. Praise ye the Lord.

An Inspiration

When you read this welcome, I hope you really feel like you're welcomed to read this blog. Really, I had an inspiration.
At first, when I began my blog last year, almost nobody commented, or viewed my blog. Now, I see that more and more people each day come here to take a look, and I'm thankful for all your wonderful thoughts and comments. So I wanted to thank you, and say you are all very much welcomed to be here... you are a blessing!


Yesterday afternoon I had two wonderful hours to enjoy the wonderful thing called "MUSIC".
This year my parents have decided to let me go to Music Theory Lessons, along with Musical Ensamble Lessons! Last year I only took Flute Lessons, but this year I'm happy to say that I'm going to the other two!
Yesterday was my first day of lessons, and I had a wonderful time with new friends. I already knew two or three, but most of them were unknown to me. And we had so much fun! Especially during Musical Ensamble Lessons... people there are very friendly and fun to be with, and we laughed, joked, and whenever we could, played together!
I feel so blessed... I'm so happy!
This afternoon I have Flute Lessons. I am looking forward to seeing my flute teacher again, and to enjoy her joyful laugh. We're good friends, Laura and I. :D
