Mischief while home alone




Waiting for daylight Shot of my candle holder stem above 
I spent two weeks home alone from 5 to 6:30 because of surgery while Hubby went to the YMCA without me.. I say this to say that is the cause of all my weird post this week.

Have you ever noticed how much alike all of our different languages are?


English


Spanish


Swedish


Bosnian

I chose these because I have blogger friends that are in countries that use these.
I have found through blogger friends around the world, our countries look very much alike and the people are all alike, but speak different languages.
I LOVE IT.





I decided to do this post because when I visited Our Photos in   the Netherlands, I realized I could read a lot of the words without knowing the language.

I have the Translation Gadget on my blog sidebar, and I think everyone should. I love visits from and visits to other countries.

Pretty photo. Yes, you and I share some of the same blog friends from other countries. It is quite thrilling to have friends from places I'll never get to see in person.

Willow said...

Well I hope you have recovered nicely from surgery.
I enjoy trying to figure out words from our blog friends from other countries before I turn on the translation button :)

A Quiet Corner said...

Sounds like you did well....two weeks is a long time, isn't it, especially when you're active!...:)JP

Terri Buster said...

Madi and Mom said...

Yes, I have noticed that. Hope all is well with you!!

Best,

It must have been maddening for you to be confined while recovering, Sandra. Hope all is better for you now that surgery is over. When I restyle our blog, I will need to add a translate widget as well.

I must have missed a post, did not know you were having surgery? I do hope you are back to your ole self soon.

At first MOM thought that was water coming out of a faucet in the light light. I told her she really needs to make that eye appointment.
Blessings,
Goose

I think you get into lovely mischief when you're home alone. Looks like surgery hasn't slowed you down in the creative category.

Eva Ason said...

Great photo :) Languages has always fascinated me. Switching between Swedish & English on a daily basis...but sometimes my brain goes blank haha! And it becomes SwEnglish...Remember a few times I've been talking to my supervisor (in Swedish) and the look on her face...very open....she didn't have a clue what I was talking about...then I realise bugger...I am speaking Swedish to her and started laughing.
Have a great Thursday!

TexWisGirl said...

hope all is well. you are plenty goofy no matter the cause... :)

Susannah said...

Sandra, You always have something very interesting going on. My granddaughter, Tori, is in her third year of Spanish. One day I was watching her do homework and I was reading the Spanish in English. She looked at me and thought her Grandma was pretty smart. But so many languages are so similar. glad you are meeting people from other countries.

Mersad said...

And we are happy to have you Sandra. Reading your blog is so much fun!

You always have such interesting posts, that some of us would never think of!!! Hope you are on the mend!!

photowannabe said...

I didn't realize you had had surgery either.
The last two weeks have been a blur so sorry.
Glad you are recouping and still turn out the great posts.
Love having people from all over the world coming to my blog too. It makes the world just a wee bit smaller.

Ann said...

Well at least you used that time home alone constructively :)

I use the google translate on some blogs but all of the ones I regularly visit from other countries write in english

Ginny said...

Fire Fire Fire Fire!!!! There are fiery flames in the candle holder stem, simply beautiful. You are RIGHT about the languages, I have noticed that COMMENT looks very similar everywhere.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I too have noticed that I can read some of the other languages. I have someone who comments on my posts and I can understand enough to know what he is saying. That's kinda cool.

Gail said...

Great photo.

I challenge myself and try to read directions NOT in English first.

Rose said...

I have been thinking I need to put the translator on my blogs...haven't done it yet. But it has been on my mind off and on for a while.

Rose said...

Well, you spurred me on....I just went and added the translator to my blogs...usually think of it when I don't want to take the time...

Chatty Crone said...

I feel dumb - but what does this mean? Did you have surgery and how did I miss that? sandie

Renegades said...

There's a local woman that I've been thinking about asking her to give the Renegades and I Spanish lessons. I took Spanish in college and yeah I didn't seem to retain it at all.

SweetMarie said...

what surgery?! I share with you, now you share with me. :) what's going on?!

SquirrelQueen said...

I have to agree with Goose' Mom, it does resemble running water from a faucet.

It is so much fun to read blogs from other countries. It also helps me with my Spanish, I can speak some and read a little more so I look first then turn on the translator to se4e how bad I messed up. LOL!

Paula Fraker said...

I agree with Mildred~ it is exciting to "meet" people from places far, far away! Neat photo, too! (And try to stay outta trouble... *giggle*)

George said...

I enjoy the fact that I have blogging friends from around the world as well. I do have the translate gadget on my blogs and appreciate it when I need it on blogs written in languages I don't understand.

Betty Manousos said...

oh, hope all is well. (did you have surgery? how did i miss that.)

great shot and dof!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Your so funny, it's like Ansel Adams waiting for the sun to rise to get the perfect shot of the mountains!

S. Etole said...

I had wondered what that was. Almost looks like a liquid.

Dee said...

Mischief is good for healing...LOL
