Please, do not say soccer. I've been posting "football (soccer)" here for years, so I am glad when someone else says football.
I am sorry, I was rooting for you guys. We always respect Germany, but Spain, not so much. Since their World Cup we think they are too full of themselves.
It would have been nice to be in the finals at home. This one was at Stuttgart, not very far away. One of Micro's friends was there. She asked if we saw her, when we watched it, lol. I said no, sorry, but of course we were looking for her. Weird, but most TV guys concentrate more on the people running on the grass trying to kick an innocent ball, than on those watching.  8)

Micro wasn't home. She was at party to say goodbye to elementary school. It was nothing official, just one of the kids throwing a party at home for the class, but they got two teachers to come.

Well, I am even more sorry now that you lost, but I hope micro still enjoyed herself. I've never been in a match so important.

And it is a great idea to have such a party for the children, and even have some teachers there. Ir is cute.

Random comment, how are the kittens doing?

Football: there is always next time. So there is still hope. And they played well. So no shame there.

The kittens will be 1 year old at the start of august. I am at work right now, but in the afternoon, after I have slept and when the rain stops, we are going to let them outside for the first time. Mini is quite nervous, because she is afraid that they will soon be run over by a car. It has often been around her birthday in July. And one of our previous cats only was one year old, when he died. We called him Merlin, because he was light grey striped, almost silver, and he had the talent to become invisible.

Yes, you told me about the kittens getting out, only I did not remember the date of their birthday. To be honest, I am a little nervous for them too. Poor Merlin. He sounded so cute. I am sure you and your family made him a very happy boy and well, being adventurous is a risk. I am sorry his life was so short but I am sure it was a good life.

On lighter topics. Yes, in football there is always another chance. It seems both Cups (Europe and America) are difficult, lots of ties, goals made for defenders of the other team. There is not such a difference between strong teams and weak teams anymore. Crossing fingers for my team, of course, but anything can happen.

We are having another cozy weekend, as it is quite cold. We had a light dinner with several cheeses, bread, some leberwust that my hubby loves, and leftover schnitzel (milanesa). It was good  :)

Today is our Independence Day!  :)
It is a National Holiday and I am glad to say we can stay home, because it is really cold (for Buenos Aires city, at least). It is traditional to drink chocolate and have some churros, perhaps we will do that.

That's nice. Enjoy your day.
This weekend, I'll be away for advanced training. Looking forward to it.

I really enjoyed it.
Last night was very cold, but at least the days are being sunny so it does not feel so cold (once the sun raised, at least).
Enjoy your training!

Hey, weird!
I'm back. 8)
I learned a lot, I didn't know before, some things I knew as a trainee but had forgotten in the years I wasn't using the knowledge. Some things I knew but learned more about them.
In the evenings, we could walk around and enjoy the view, we even once went to a beautiful lake. I walked in up to my knees. After that we ate at a restaurant with a view of the lake and the mountains behind it.
It was very nice.

I am glad to hear you had fun  :)
I began watching season 2 of Star Trek Prodigy. I am liking it so far (episode 4 or 5 of 22).

Sounds great. I have not watched Star Trek Prodigy yet. But I will do so soon.

BTW, Spain is European champion now. They won 2:1 against England. Both played well, it was an exciting match.

We won! Argentina is the America's champion! I am super glad. Now, the World Cup is framed by two championships (America Cup). The USA organization was awful, quite embarrassing. There was a lot of incidents and the match began about an hour later. And the match was long. The 90 minutes finished in a tie, so there was a 30 minutes extension. It was nerve-wrecking, but we won!
It was also the last match of Angel Di Maria, magnificent player. He is retiring and I am happy he did with a title.

I did not watch the Spain-England match, but I heard good things about it.

Re: Prodigy. I did not like the first episodes (I am talking about season 1), it felt too Star Wars (which I love, but it is not Star Trek). However, I warmed up to the show later. And this second season is good. I am little patience with one of the characters though  :D :D

ˇMuchas gracias!
We are really happy about that. This is a great team and I believe they deserve it. And I am glad Di Maria could end his career with the team in a high note.
