Aqui estan algunos de las fotos rapidas del belen improvisado en la entrada de casa. El espacio reservado para ello era otro, pero las cantidad de ninhos por debajo de los 6 anhos hace dificil la colocacion de este minucioso trabajo (el establo aun no es definitivo). Esta es la tercera configuracion de personajes que he visto hoy. Los reyes ya le han dado sus regalos al ninho Jesus, se los han quitado, su padre ha estado a la derecha y a la izquierda del ninho, etc... los unicos estables parecen ser el burro y el buey ;) Sed buenos, Carlos

Finalmente, las figuras y el belen estan listos

Dangerous activities

If Marta is to learn how to use a skateboard (why not?), she better start from the beginning ;) Balance!

And she loves it.

Traditions. Continued

Pintando

Despues de pasarse Eulalia unas buenas noches lijando las figuras, ahora las estamos pintando de blanco para poder pintarlas luego con los colores adecuados. A Pablo hay que mantenerlo ocupado para que no haga de las suyas. Marta pone tanta pintura en las figuras que les hara falta un poco de liposuccion antes de empezar a poner color. Yo, por mi cuenta, he ido a recoger musgo y estoy cortando la madera para hacer el establo y el puente.

Sed buenos

Through The Ceiling

We have a new (and now already closed) access to the attic.

Through The Ceiling

I fell through the ceiling while moving the ethernet cables from the back of the master bedroom to the front of it. I fell the 3 meters all the way to the bottom, scaring the bejesus out of Pablo, who luckily wasn’t under (but close).

So, good news:
Pablo is only scared
Eulalia is also OK (she was closer than Pablo)
I did fall through the 3 meter drop, instead of falling through the almost 7 meter drop
I had finished the job of passing the cables, so I don’t have to go up again
We wanted to change that *part* of the ceiling anyway ;)
No permanent body harm

I think I’ll wait for the cable replacement going to the first floor, through the chimney hole. I need a safety harness ;)

First Mistery (Paris)

While I was living in Paris and Eulalia in Germany, Eulalia used to come to the City of Lights quite often, so we could spend weekends together. One of the [first] weekends she visited me, we want and did a huge touristic (but romantic) weekend in la Tour Eiffel, le Bateau Mouche, a couple of modernist museums, the Louvre, le Quartier Latin… the works!

On Sunday night, Eulalia left for Germany again and I went back to school. The following day, at three in the afternoon, a room mate came to tell me that someone had broken into our house. Someone had broken through the back door (the garden), got into the house, search through each and every room (5 room mates) and finally left with nothing (apparently). Some of my negatives were scattered on the living room floor, but laptops, discmans, cash, debit anbd credit cards were still on the tables were they were left but their respective owners. What the heck was going on?

Looking at the negatives, I knew where the negatives came from, a plastic bag, from Fotoprix, in my room. So why somebody who steals nothing takes a plastic bag, and what’s more, why go through the process of emptying the bag of two slim envelopes containing negatives? Darn, my camera wasn’t there. The bag was there ans so was the flash, but the cheap as half broken Konica that I took from my father wasn’t there, and the film from that weekend all over Paris with Eulalia was inside.

F*@#CK! SH*#&T!

So, someone broke into our place because we saw/photographed something during that weekend, while Eulalia was there? I am still wondering if I am more sad because the camera was taken or because the film was taken. The film was a good one to hold onto, plus it had been a memorable weekend.

I did learn one leason, though. Empty your camera of film as soon as possible.

For Conspiracy Theorists: Who was in Paris that weekend that needed his pictures that badly?

To be continued…

Nuevas Tradiciones

?Es esto un oxymoron? ?Nuevas tradiciones?

Este anho hemos decidido montar un Belen. Pero aqui en los US no hay cultura de belenes, salvo en las Christian Stores, y para mi, ir a una Christian Store es como ir a una armeria. Asi que hemos puesto en marcha todos los conocimientos de manualidades de Eulalia y estamos haciendo un belen in-house. Eulalia ha hecho todo el trabajo duro (la gente) y yo (y mal) los animales. Pero por lo menos Marta ahora entendera porque sus regalos llegan el 6 de Enero y no el 24 de Diciembre.

Aun no hemos acabado claro. Ayer Eulalia vacio las figuras por dentro, y hoy tal vez empecemos a sellarlas para pintarlas, despues del recital de Navidad de Marta, claro.

Pablo met his match

Fotos de una fiesta hace tiempo. Irate, con 4 o 5 meses menos que Pablo, ya le daba canha hasta el punto que Pablo volaba para alejarse de ella.
