My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

How do you say ..... ?


Lessons in Español.
I can speak a bit of Plomero ... What ? you don't speak plomero?
Anyone who has a home has to be able to speak to the plumber, no?
So I know what to call the pipes and floor and tiles and sink etc.
Now we are learning to speak Electricidad.
As in mine seems to be spotty.
One day it works, the lights go on.... the next day it is a bit dim in here.
Then the hall closet light went out .
Easy peasy, put a new bulb in.
Still won't work.
So instead of bothering the electrician , we just lived with a dark closet.
Then the chandelier in here burned out.
My husband replaced the bulbs.
They didn't work either.
It must be the chandelier.
So today we got the Electrician to come by , see what the matter is.
I am writing this as we wait for him to come back from the hardware store, where he is buying new bulbs for the chandelier that works just fine. Oy.
