I Have to Watch Him Like a Hawk

 Buenas tardes! I thought you might enjoy seeing what Senor is up to these days.

 This fireplace, which will have a huge wood mantel, is keeping him busy and out of trouble. As you can see in the photo to the right, it is in the main sala, or living area. See the blue tarp? That is very near where the front door will be. So that should give you a good perspective. The door to the left will go to the main bath and the door to the right to the main bedroom. The fireplace chimney will go up and on either side of the big beam. So there you have it.

And below you have his little garden which is still just that........little. He discovered that Cookies has been going out in the night and laying in the lettuce. It has been completely flattened in the mornings. That Cookies, he knows a nice soft bed when he sees one. Senor thinks most things will be bigger right when the heat hits us. We have butter lettuce, spinach, peas, beans, carrots and corn.

We had a little scare. Senor and I were watching Barcelona, our favorite football (soccer) team. Senor got up from his chair and caught his foot in the land line cord (which we have to use because he forgot the password for our Wi Fi  the last time we had to get a new modem from Telmex). I have tried not to bug him about this but for about six months he has put off calling Telmex to find out the password. We have constantly dodged the long blue cord, especially in the night because it is between the bed and bathroom.
The computer crashed to the floor................%#$^..........he said................*^_+.........i said. The screen was blank. He picked it up, still in one piece. For half an hour he messed with it and finally turned to look at me...........i broke it............yes, i think you did..........the land line cord won't insert anymore.........hmmm, i said. I am too busy, not listening to him as I am already practically out the door and on my way to Tucson for a new computer. On the phone suddenly with Telmex.............yes, can i have my Wi Fi password, please.........
computer back on. Barcelona wins 4-1.
I have to watch him like a hawk.

talk about procrastination-we've been in japan 1 1/2 years and still don't have skype. our former neighbors even sent us the necessary items but my hubby, who works on a computer all day, has put off setting it up. he told me, out of the clear blue sky, that he would set it up this sunday while i am out snowshoeing. i won't hold my breath. however, i can't complain. he is a wonderful hubby and never complains about my messy housekeeping. by the way, i like that "watch him like a hawk" saying. i'll have to teach it to my japanese friends. so, would you call that an idiom?

have a great weekend. btw i've been meaning to tell you that i noticed you have started using the right form of "buenos dias and buenas tardes" good job. no confusing those in japanese as they are totally different from each other-ohayo gozaimasu for good morning and konbanwa for good evening. now if i could only learn the rest of the language ;-)
