As you know I don´t have a lot of vocabulary in english so I decided that I must take note of words I like or use a lot in writing in spanish and also of words I read in books and don´t even know what they mean, so I will take note and search the meaning and put them in my new vocabulary notebook. I hope with it I can have more vocabulary when writing and translating!

Now my desk is full of notebooks and notes again! Well what can I do I need them, so it´s going to stay that way!

Today we celebrated my best friend-beta reader-editor birthday. I am very honored that she decided to have lunch with us in these day. The kids love her a lot. She is their aunt, I don´t have blood sisters but she is my soul sister. So we spent a nice time and I am happy I choose the correct present  for once!!! I took a lot of pictures and ate more cake than I should, but is what you do in birthdays have a good time and eat cake!

Right now I am going to continue the translation and take some pills for the headache it is giving me.

Have a nice night and a happy day!

  1. Sorry the translation is giving you a headache — no fun! But I love that you’re keeping notebooks of English words you use often. 🙂
    I have a very close friend whom my kiddos call ‘auntie’, as well. (I also have no sisters.)

  2. Happy birthday to your friend. I get a daily email from dictionary.com. I LOVE it. Today’s word was ullage. As in, the whisky must have been good, based on the ullage left in the bottle. (small remainder of a substance or …..or something like that)

  3. I take notes when I read of all kinds of things. But mostly I like to see different way writers express things, so I can avoid using the same words over and over. Like alternate ways to say ‘glanced’.
