Bonjour!!! I survived! The French presentation was far from perfect, but I did it! Oh my gosh -- I remember when I could slip between French and English with no thought, and I still can. It's just that there's a whole lot of new terms that are not in my vocabulary!
I have to laugh because I get an e-mail from Grammarly with my stats for all my writing.
I'm listening to the radio, and they are talking about people seem to have different personalities when they speak another language. I think they were referring, not only to themselves but to our Prime Minister. There was a French debate last night for the upcoming election!
Well, no matter -- I'll get through it, and I'll become more comfortable with each presentation. I have TWO presentations in French next week. Did you know that you can change the language in your sewing machine? OK -- I can do that with my Husqvarna Viking and PFAFF machines -- these are the higher-up machines. There are loads of languages in them. So I have to switch the machine to French and retake the screenshots for the presentations. That's on the agenda for this weekend.
All in all, it's a good exercise, and I'm happy to see how much of my French that I have retained. It's been a long, long time since I haven't used it daily. Now to find a good French radio station. Or audiobooks in French? Or a group chat once a week? I must do that -- I need the practice.
We had a HUGE downpour of rain the other night. So much that the little creek in the forest actually had water in it. It never has water at this time of the year. Our pond was almost overflowing, but thankfully no water in the house.
