¡Que Llegue La Primavera!

¡Saludos calurosos, amigos!

Winter is the season of my soul's discontent.  I do my best to hold on and stay positive through the winter but ultimately, no matter what I seem to do, I wind up feeling down in the dumps.  I go through a miniature depression every year between Christmas and March 1st.

Regardless of the weather, I declare it spring on March 1st.  I know I'm off by about three weeks officially, but I can't stand it a moment longer so I don't.  As far as I'm concerned, it's officially spring.  You are welcome to disagree, but you will not sway me.  In this I am firm.

I spent the afternoon looking up springtime quotes in Spanish, and picking out photographs from to go along with them.  Then I put them together in little graphics that I can use in my lessons.  Some have subjunctive, others have command forms, yet others have future tense.  And some are very basic and won't frighten off even the most timid beginners.

I'm sharing them here with you today.  Even if you still have a foot of snow outside, hope is here.

Les mando abrazos calientitos . . .
