one second everyday — june 2019

june! friends and family and dogs staying over, and more passionfruit than we can eat. we took some time to learn about new stuff (like passive houses and electric cars), and did a little weekend getaway to explore mérida. i turned 37 and got a box of my favorite pencils for my birthday, which was brilliant! we soft-launched something we’ve been cooking for a long time. the boy went to russia for 3 days (which is the furthest we’ve been apart) but then came back safe and sound. 50% of the year is done and i’m happy and grateful.

one second everyday — may 2019

dear may,

you saw paulo finish the eurovelo, saw us eating lots of snacks, a developer’s conference, the EU elections, weddings and birthday parties…

my arm is still sore from that vaccine!

one second everyday — april 2019

april, where did you go?

we went up north for a bit and then my family came south for a bit. in between these, paulo continued running the coast of algarve on the weekends. we visited tavira’s collection of fruit trees and tended to our own passionfruit vine which was growing wild. so many sunny days and some very nice coffee too.

plus, lots and lots of full working days behind the scenes, frustrating and productive in equal measure. things are coming along.

one second everyday — march 2019

march was done in the blink of an eye, and i don’t have much to show for it, video-wise. i forgot to film a few seconds, and most of what i filmed was just… life.

still, the days were good and i continue to enjoy our quiet time at home. i brushed up on my chinese, we found new friends to play board games with, and saved our food scraps for someone else’s chickens. oh, and the boy started a project in which he runs the whole region on the weekends, from east to west — he’s already more than halfway done now! :)

one second everyday — february 2019

february looks boring, but it was actually pretty good. we hiked some new trails, went north to plant trees, met with new and old friends, fed the deer in the local nature reserve and made progress on my second pair of socks. we also discovered a bio farm right here in our town and we’ve been going there ever since. :)
