|OSCAR IS OUR HALF-SPANISH/HALF-U.S.AMERICAN NEIGHBOR WHO LIVES A FEW BLOCKS AWAY.|
AT BREAKFAST THIS MORNING, HE WAS DRESSED AS A PENGUIN.
|ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT OSCAR AND HE SMILES. I TRIED TO GET HIM|
TO CAST ONE IN MY DIRECTION, BUT HE WOULDN'T TAKE HIS EYES OFF VANESSA.
|SAN GERALDO MADE PLUM COBBLER YESTERDAY.|
NOT TOO SWEET, SLIGHTLY TART, AND TOTALLY DELICIOUS. JUST LIKE HIM.
The temperature this morning while we had breakfast outside was 13C/55F. Today has only gotten up to 20C/68F. Downright nippy! It's a good thing a beautiful lap blanket arrived from my blogging friend YONKS. I won it one day because I visited her fascinating blog and commented during the giveaway. The blanket is beautiful. Dudo loves it. So I think I might have a battle on my hands. I've got to protect it from cat hair — and claws! Oh yeah, and then there's San Geraldo to contend with. I probably should just give it up now. I can already picture San Geraldo sitting in his comfy chair in the living room, covered in the new blanket, with Dudo on his lap.
Tomorrow is Dia de Todos Los Santos (All Saint's Day), a national holiday, which means all the stores will again be closed. San Geraldo did his grocery shopping. I'm going to go out and see if I can find some traditional delicacies of Dia de Todos Los Santos. Roasted chestnuts are common and I know exactly where to find them. But I'm not a fan. There are other wonderful-sounding sweets that I hope to be able to share with you (maybe another scratch-n-sniff blog post). I'm very curious to try Huesos de Santo (Saint's Bones). Sounds delicious, doesn't it?
