In my free time I make fish tacos!!!

UMMY!!! I was raised in California and Mexican food is a staple!!! Fortunately, in most parts of the US Mexican food can be found!!!

When you have free time I recommend making fish tacos! Most import stores in Japan have tortillas and salsa!

I love having free time! It is a rare and precious thing–free time!!! And, Mexican food is a free time activity!

Have a good one!

Free Time Rocks!!!

a href=”http://englishwithkatie.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/imagescat92mr8.jpg”>This week, because I am visiting friends and family, I am focusing on free time and free time rocks!!!

In fact it rocks my socks off!!! Here in the USA signs starting with “Gone…” are a popular way to celebrate free time!

AWOL—Absent With Out Leave—Missing With Out Permission!!!!

Always time for jokes, too!

These signs are popular as decorations and keep everyone chuckling and aware that free time is important!!!

Have a good one!

Sincerely,

Katie

Free Time! Creating a Pie Chart in English!

Free time is so great to have!!!! I consider studying to be a free time activity because I love studying! I am thinking that maybe I need to boost my exercise time by cutting back on my studying.

Also, and this is really a shock to me-I do not have “do nothing”. I now know I want to schedule more “do nothing”  into my freet time planning–just sit and enjoy–doing zero, zip, zippo, nada, nothing–what a concept!!!

Make your chart–click here!!!

Have a good one!

Sincerely,

Katie

Transcript! I really love having free time!

h2>Click here: I really love having free time video!

Hi, this is Katie with our video to go with our tweet. I really love having free time, I really love having free time, I really love having free time. What do you like to do in your free time? Go bowling, go golfing, meet friends, go to (karaoke?) Sing, dance, laugh, play, paint, enjoy the internet? Go to a restaurant? Go to a coffee shop?

I really love having free time, I really love having free time.  What I want you to do, is to take action and get out a piece of paper, and write one two three four five six seven eight nine ten. Ten numbers on your piece of paper.

Put that piece of paper in your purse or your wallet or your pocket or your bag. And when you stop, you’re waiting for a train, you’re waiting for a light to turn, or a commercial comes on the television, I want you to say to yourself, I really love having free time.

And then, write down what you love doing in your free time. Ten of them. Then what I want you to do is come back to this place and write down the number one activity that you love.

So throughout the day we’re looking for ten practices. I really love having free time. Piece of paper, one two three four five six seven eight nine ten. When you stop throughout your day, I really love having free time. I really love having free time, then write down one thing that you love to do.

Get ten of those, and when you’re finished, come back to this place and write it down right below this spot. Great! I look forward to reading what your number one free time activity is.

This is Katie saying bye, have a good one!

Take care.

How is your clean-up going???

Here are the five from yesterday to get you started:

Time to dust

While cleaning I light a candle. It makes the place smell great and the fire seems to burn and refresh the whole area and make it clean and clear!

Also,I am a vinegar girl—I clean with vinegar and any natural cleaners that I find at health food stores!

Time to repot plants

Time to scrub the walls

Time to scrub the sinks

Time to sweep all floors

Time to mop all floors

Time to take out the trash

Time to rearrange my shelves

Time to throw out old papers

Time to clean the toilet and bath area

Time to clean the fridge inside and out

Time to clean all filters

Time to throw out worn out goods

Time to repair torn or old screens

Time to shake the rugs

Time to remove any cobwebs

Time to check all lightbulbs

Time to clean all cupboards inside and out

Time to check expiration dates

Time to clean up around my place.

What else needs to be done around the house? Making a list will help you learn new vocabulary

Time to start… Time to Stop…

 In this situation,  you check the time and realize that it is time to start or stop something!

Hmm. Time to start thinking about dinner.

Hmm. Time to start cleaning up.

Hmm. Time to start getting ready for bed.

Hmm. Time to stop procrastinating.

Hmm. Time to stop studying.

Hmm. Time to stop watching TV.

And everyday is time to start being kind to yourself and time to stop being hard on  yourself!!!

I believe that when you are kind to and easy on yourself—you can be kind  to and easy on other people!

What time is it???

Time to stop and smell the roses!!!

And just like there are all kinds of people–there are all kinds of roses!

Have a good one!

Sincerely,

Katie

Katie, How’s the time???

Here is what I say to myself when I have been racing like the wind to get to where I am supposed to be!!! I ask myself:

“Katie, How’s the time?”

Whoa, (Katie) you just made it!

Yikes, (Katie)! That was close!

Oh, I barely made it!

WOW! That’s cutting it close.

Whew, I’m in time.

In this situation, you are afraid you are going to be late; and you are not late! Remember to use your name and not my name!!!

My favorite joke—the epitome of common sense!!!

What time is it when an elephant sits on your fence?

Time to get a new fence!

Remember: Out loud, under your breath or in your head–you can use your English anytime–anywhere!!

Have a good one!

Sincerely,

Katie
