Happy Geburtstag To Me!

Cuddling cute little lambies at my friend Jesscy's place.  April 2021.

Es ist mein Geburtstag. Ich bin heute siebenunddreißig Jahre alt.  Ich habe viel Spaß.

I had to do a handstand as part of the campus-wide spring fitness challenge.  March 2021.

Have I mentioned on here that I am learning German?  I started last year so I guess one could call it a "Pandemic Project."  I'd dabbled a little bit with it back in the early part of the 2010s, but never dedicated myself enough to really get anywhere.  

These days I use Mango Languages through our public library coupled with an honest-to-goodness textbook.  I have a notebook where I do my homework exercises from the book.  I even grade myself.  :)  Mango primarily helps with my reading and speaking and the textbook with reading and writing.  

My range is still pretty limited, but I realized that aside from the word for "birthday," which I had to look up, I could string together a few sentences that were appropriate to the occasion.  Mostly I can just talk about the weather...  

Hanging with Glenn on a trip back to my hometown.  I am also rocking the new birthday earrings that Val gave me early.  April 2021.

My message translates as: It is my birthday.  I am thirty-seven years old today.  I am having a lot of fun.

Camping with friends.  March 2021.
