Dishpan hands / Manos de sartén

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

I did some last-minute shopping for today’s dinner and now I’m busy washing serving dishes and glasses, and polishing silver. So just some random photos today from my time spent with David and Jay in Málaga recently, plus two images closer to home (well, the final one at home, actually). I hope you’re all having a great Saturday whatever you’re doing. As for me, it’s back to the sink.


Hice algunas compras de última hora para la cena de hoy y ahora estoy ocupada lavando platos y vasos, y puliendo plata. Así que solo algunas fotos aleatorias de mi tiempo con David y Jay en Málaga recientemente, más dos imágenes más cerca de casa (bueno, la última en casa, en realidad). Espero que todos estéis teniendo un gran sábado, sea lo que sea que estéis haciendo. En cuanto a mí, ha vuelto al fregadero.

• The top photo and this one are from the lobby of David and J’s hotel in Málaga, Hotel Mariposa.

• The Soho neighborhood. That’s the stage door (at right)to the Soho Theatre. If you’re lucky, you might bump into Antonio Banderas.
• El barrio del Soho. Esa es la puerta del escenario (a la derecha) del Soho Theatre. Si tienes suerte, puede que te encuentres con Antonio Banderas.
• At the Port of Málaga. I’ll be showing the photo to The Kid Brother next week. He loves these things.
•En el Puerto de Málaga. Le mostraré la foto a El Hermanito la próxima semana. Él ama estas cosas.
• This was an oratory built at the port of Málaga in 1649. It was converted into a chapel (I thought an oratory was a chapel) in 1719 and inaugurated in 1725. According to their signage, the first oratory was built in 1531 and destroyed during the siege of the Armada of Flanders. I’m confused because that siege occurred in 1487. I guess there was another siege I don’t know about. It was moved along the port before it became a chapel and moved again in the 20th century. Do you care?

Supongo que hubo otro asedio que no conozco. Se trasladó a lo largo del puerto antes de convertirse en una capilla y se trasladó de nuevo en el siglo XX. ¿Te importa?
• And one last Christmas wish from Lozano at Mesón Salvador.

  1. Merry Christmas – such a fun time – it was so great to see the two (four) of you (can’t overlook the cats.)

  2. I absolutely loved the picture of the oratory!

    Merry Christmas to you and San Geraldo my friend!

    1. Mistress Borghese:
      It’s surprising to see that old building along the very contemporary port. Merry Christmas from us both back to you.

  3. Whether it’s a church or an oratory, it’s a nice piece of architecture.

    As for the pink…sculpture (?), I didn’t notice the stick at first and thought it was some partially chewed bubble gum!

  4. 1) Merry Christmas! 2) I love weird art (some of this qualifies), and the oratory is beautiful 2) They Also Serve Who Stand and Wash.

  5. I am contrite I’ve not been on line in a while.
    I am glad to hear you are doing well this Christmas Eve.
    Good for you to polish the silver! I cannot remember the last time I did ours, or even used them.

    1. Urspo:
      The last time I polished the silver was I think 8 years ago (when it was last use). The salt and pepper shakers weren’t very forgiving.

  6. Lozano looks like he’d be really fun at a Xmas party! May you, SG, Dudo and Moose have a wonderful holiday with lots of love and laughter — Jeebus knows your blog has given me lots of giggles this year!

    1. Tundra Bunny:
      Christmas Eve was everything you describe. Lozano is quick-witted and would definitely be fun at a party.

  7. I’m looking forward to hearing about the big dinner. If you and SG ever want a Florida working vacation, you can stay with me. SG will cook and you’ll clean.


  8. I like the big pink popsicle, but what’s the violin in plastic/glass all about?!

    Dudo is right to ask the essential questions.

    Merry Christmas to you and SG!

    1. Steve:
      I read, I don’t know when, that the best violin wood (used by Stradivarius) came from trees that grew during a mini ice age before the 1800s. The trees grew more slowly, which made the wood more dense. The violin “sculpture” looks kind of like it’s encased in ice. But I don’t think it has anything to do with that. So, basically, I have no clue. Merry Christmas to you and Dave.
