Monday, July 5, 2010
Our week started out well with me making some fresh homemade lemonade with lemons that Alice gave me. It is the best lemonade that I have ever had! All it is is 2 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 cups of water, and 2 cups of simple syrup (1.5 cups sugar, 1.5 cups water, and lemon zest brought to a boil over the stove then cooled), all mixed together in a pitcher with ice and lemon slices. Honestly, the best lemonade I have ever had! I told Jeff that we have to drink the "liquid gold" slowly because I want to save it!
La nostra settimana e' cominciata bene e io mi sono fatta una limonata con dei limoni che la mia collega mi ha dato a lavoro. E' la limonata piu' buona che ho mai bevuto! Era buonissima! E' molto semplice a farla: 2 cups di succo di limone fresco, 2 cups di acqua, e poi 2 cups di un sciroppo fatto con 1.5 cups di zucchero, 1.5 cups di acqua e della buccia di limone fatti andare sul fuoco finoche non bolle e poi rafreddata. Onestamente, e' una limonata buonissima! Ho detto a Jeff che lo dobbiamo bere lentamente perche' non lo voglio sprecare!


So many lemons!

No more lemons left!

End Result

I then went to work where I learned that I was given a new position of rooms controller for the next 6 months. This is a great position for me because I am (a) working in the mornings so am home at night for dinner; (b) learning how to do some more things with the computer system at work and getting the day ready (pre-assigning rooms for arriving guests); and (c) it is somewhat of a promotion so yay for me!
Poi sono andata a lavorare dove mi hanno promosso a fare quasi lo stesso lavoro, pero' adesso lavoro al mattino! Sono anche in carica di piu' cose perche preparo la giornata per tutti gli altri. Mi piace molto e sono contenta di avere un po di piu' da fare quando sono a lavorare.



The rest of the week was spent getting ready for the big race that starts on Wednesday! For the fourth, we were going to see fireworks, but it was foggy and cold, so we decided to come home and ended up crashing (as in fast asleep) at 9:30pm. That was last week and now we are less than 48 hours away from start time so Jeff and co. are working hard getting things up to speed. I'll try to post on Wednesday after the start with info on where to track the race! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
Il resto della settimana e' stata usata per preparare per la gara che comincia fra meno di 48 ore! Per il 4 di luglio, volevamo andare a vedere i fuochi pero' eravamo cosi' stanchi che eravamo a letto (a dormentati) per le 21.30! Addesso ci dobbiamo solo preparare per la gara adesso e poi partano! Cercero' di scrivere qualcosa mercoledi' dopo che hanno cominciato! Buona settimana!
