I’ve been tinkering with the look and feel of this blog, just to freshen it up a bit. Don’t think I’m done quite yet. But then I haven’t a large degree of HTML programming accumen so I think all the really cool things I could do are beyond my imagination.
Today was the last day of class for my second try of Thai Language Module 3. I’ve completed a total of 80 days of instruction in Thai over the past six months, which suddenly seems like a lot less than four months. I guess I’m not counting weekends, am I?
Anyhow, I did alright on the final exam but clearly need to speak the language a lot more in order to build strength in vocabulary and grammar. After a lot of debate (mostly internal dialogue and some complaining to friends) I decided to sign up for Module 4. If I quit now, I’m only halfway through learning to read and write, a tenuous position at best.
To celebrate the final day of class, I made spinach hummus with toasted pita slices and brought them to class. The students and teachers are a voracious bunch and pounced on it along with a super-large sugar cookie (think pizza-sized) covered with slices of fresh tropical fruit that one of my fellow students, Brenda, cooked. She has an oven. I envy her. She’s offered to let me come over and use it. I just may do that.
The spinach hummus was really good with cumin and garam masala and lots of garlic in it.
