Write ten words beginning with the letter you’ve been given. Include an explanation of what each word means to you and why. If you want to play, ask for a letter in comments. I’ll issue you a letter.
eph2810 gave me the letter S. Here we go! in no particular order:

1. Spanish: my mother tongue.
2. Spain: is where I am, I wasn't born here, though.
3. Spouse: the one and only
4. Son: the one and only
5. Siblings: younger brother and younger sister, both very far away, and away from each other as well.
6. Skiing: the one and only sport we (still) practice as a family.
7. Seven: my lucky number. I was born on October 7. Mark your calendar, there will be a blog party!
8. Sunglasses: never leave home without them on. See nr. 2: sunny Spain!
9. Sparkling wine: my favorite drink. I 'd rather have a classic glass of wine as opposed to a cocktail
10. Salud! the Spanish word for health (which we all need) but also for cheers! Very important word to know :-)

    Michele sent me today, but you know I am here often.

  2. Great Great Lists, Mar! That first one seems to be very popular thesec days...and the second one too...I see them almost everywhere I go...!
    I think you do soooo well in English that one would not know it is NOT your first launguage, or 'mother tongue', as they say....Amazing, my dear.
    You have very healthy things in your refridgerator...aside from the diet coke, of course.(lol)
    And Michele sent me this A.M. but I'm here all the time, as you know.

    I need more time too. Have a mug that reads: God put me on this earth to do a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind, I will never die.

  4. so much info in a single post. :) guess what? i start my mornings with a cup of coffee too! Ha, but i betcha that you knew that. Love sparkling wine as well (can't go wrong with Mateus rosé).
    btw, i meant to say that i wanted a estancia near Concepción, Chile ;) tsch, Argentina... who wants the pampas when you can have it all from Tierra del Fuego to the Atacama desert?
