An Early Spring Walk

Orchard

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Tweet A few days ago, I went to a special park in my town. This park is a kind of garden around an old house. (I didn’t get a good photo of the house.) I like walking around in the […] [...]

Halloween 2010

Tweet This year I was really busy during October. I wasn’t able to plan a Halloween party. It’s too bad, because I love having Halloween parties. Here are some photos from a couple of years ago. Here are some small lanterns I put outside my place. We usually put decorations outside our homes as well […] [...]

Wedding Anniversary

Tweet Yesterday was my seventh wedding anniversary. My husband and I got married in 2003 in San Francisco. This year, we didn’t want to spend a lot of money on an expensive dinner or expensive presents. However, we had a nice time. We packed a picnic and went to a park near the edge of […] [...]

Where I’ve Lived

Backyard Chickens

Tweet On Tuesday, my husband and I went to see one of our friends. She lives in a nearby city. Even though she lives in town, my friend has chickens. My friend’s chickens live next to her house. There are two hens (female chickens) and one rooster (male chicken). Right now, she also has some […] [...]

Subway Terms

Tweet Our reader Dmitry wrote to ask about subway words. Dmitry, if you are confused about American subway terms, I think that’s not surprising! Only a few cities in the US have subways, so most Americans don’t live near one. (I didn’t live in an area with a subway or metro until I was 21 […] [...]

Take a Peek at the San Francisco Bay Area…Present Tense

Tweet Do you remember the present tense? (she walks, I read, he tells me, they buy some coffee, etc.) It’s probably one of the first things you learned in English. One place where you will often find the simple present tense is in captions–the explanatory writing that goes with a photo in a newspaper, magazine, […] [...]
