¡qué vida la mía!


well. I just had to post right now. I have lots to say about life lately (and maybe I'll post it later), but for now I just wanted to let you know what I'm up to at this moment.

It's the first warm, sunny, day we've had yet, and today was the first time I saw people eating at the tables outside of the cafés, on the sidewalks. So of course, I had to take advantage -- "aprovechar" -- of this beautiful day.

I'm sitting on my porch, looking out at the boats in the port, and beyond them to the deep blue mediterranean. Between me and the port lies but a pool and a lovely little plaza bedecked in greenery.

Here's a picture I snapped with my computer to give you an idea of what this looks like:

Well, I should go. It's time to eat the fresh fish that my mamá has been preparing, and in truth, my family thinks I'm crazy for sitting outside in short sleeves with all this wind. But with the sun, the view, and the salt sea air blowing in, how could I not? I'm here to aprovechar.
