3. Read & listen. “Early in the morning is the best time of the day to do some physical exercise. After a relaxing night sleep and a healthy breakfast it would be a good habit to put on a comfortable pair of sneakers and go out to have a quick walk. I went this morning. I met some other people too. It was cold, but I dressed with warm winter garments and I felt well. The frost was every where. It sparkled in the bright sun light. The mountains were covered with snow.     When I returned home I had a shower and I felt happy all the day.

5. School break

6. Third Read & Listen. MY HOUSE.

“My house is comfortable. It has: a kitchen, a dining-room, a living-room, three bedrooms and a bath-room.

My daughter and I like the kitchen because we enjoy cookingThe kids set the table in the dining-room while my husband sits in his armchair in the living-room watching the sport programs on the TV.

When we wake up in the morning, the first thing, that everyone has to do, is to use the bath-room. My grand-daughter takes a long time to comb her long hair. My mother has a shower very early in the morning, and usually I go after her. The boys wash their face, brush their teeth and quickly run out to catch the bus to go to school.

After a hard and busy day it’s time to go to bed. We are glad to enter in our bed-rooms. We hurry to switch off the light and have a good sleep.”

13. READING and LISTENING leggi qui o  apri il blog “on FEBRUARY 16TH. 2022” (dove trovi la traduzione in italiano)
 My relatives in Melbourne, live in houses surrounded by amazing wide open spaces, not far from a suburb named South Morang. They can see much of  the green country sights. The kangaroos skip very near inhabited centers,  and sometimes even beautiful colorful   birds fly undisturbed there, too.
My cousin sees these species very often while he goes for a walk,  and has a chance  to shoot  photos very near. He says that kangaroos are usually not scared of people.
 The fauna and flora in Australia is very colorful….
(P.S. When I lived in Melbourne I was very near  to the city in Brunswick so I’ve never had a chance to see these animals live in freedom.)

The years go by and now I’m a grandmother. It’s fun. I often take my grand daughter out, inviting some of her friends to come with us. The two elder grandkids are independent so I don’t have much of their company, if not to take them to sporting activities.
           This afternoon I brought my grandchild with two of her friends to the ice rink. They are so good skating on ice. Many boys and girls joined in today so they enjoyed themselves very much. In the mean time I sat on a bench waiting for them while I read my book.
It has been a happy Saturday!!!!              ascoltandola cliccando qua sotto:
