According to Word Press, I opened this blog one year ago today.
Très bizarre! I knew it was close, but didn’t know the exact day. I started this out as a “Let’s see what happens” exercise, and I guess I like what happened because I’m still here! I began as part of the 2014 “Zero to Hero” challenge on the Daily Post. I don’t really think I’m a “Hero” but I have some chers lecteurs and I get to open my Reader every day and read the words of some kindred spirits. Chouette!
In short, y’all are awesome ! (That’s Texan for “Vous êtes fantastiques!”)
Well, I figured I may as well do one more little post today in honor of the “One Year” thing. I am going to make this a “JusJoJan” post 🙂
I just took a picture of my “jottings” from my French reading today. I recorded uses of the “passé simple” along with words that I just plain don’t know. My idea is to try and use the “unknown” words in sentences later.
The book itself? So far it’s très intéressant ! I mean, the character of a woman who has supposedly killed multiple husbands, and is now intrigued by the new young priest…how could I not be interested in such a person? Of course, the vocabulary involved with learning about her is…un peu bizarre. I mean, I seriously doubt (and I really hope I don’t!) that I would ever need to use the verb “zigouiller” (to “do in”) in any conversation. But it’s a great exercise in learning to use context to understand words.
And with that, I’d like to say merci une fois encore à mes chers lecteurs!
