one second everyday — august 2018

in august, we continued the fun times in canada, exploring toronto, finally catching a show at the planetarium, and even going to the niagara falls!

we came back home in the middle of the month, just in time to catch the end tail of summer: lots of concerts and fairs, meals outside, hosting friends and family and one intrepid gecko that decided to adopt us. :) so many things happening, so many new experiences! it was a very good month.

one second everyday — july 2018

so… july was eventful!

the first half was filled with work and fixing stuff at home. then we drove north for some family time, and finally flew to canada, where we’re slowly exploring ontario with friends. :) hurray for traveling again!

one second everyday — june 2018

june began in the azores and then jumped back home, just in time to see the parents arrive with the trunk full of cherries and other delights from their little farm. it’s high season now and you can definitely feel it in town, buzzing with festivities and tourists.

the days were filled mostly with work and our own mundane tasks… but for once, i’m sort of glad. the less excitement a month has in it, the more we can catch our breath and take stock. the first half of the year was demanding on many levels, and now more than ever, i feel the need to take it easy and carve the space to research, learn and advance other projects, to plan secretly and without respite.

one second everyday — may 2018

may was mostly gdpr month, which made it pretty boring overall. still, in the in-betweens of the legal stuff, we managed to go to lisbon twice, host friends and family for a few days, celebrate 47 million postcards, give blood and the boy even fixed the dashboard lights on our car! :)

another nice-but-so-full month, and i’m increasingly missing having time for myself.

one second everyday — april 2018

if there was a theme to april this year, it was family.

the month started with paulo’s parents coming over for a few days, then us going north for daniela’s graduation, and it ended back south with my own parents in town for a short holiday. other highlights included spending time with friends and seeing the passionfruit bloom and give fruit.

it was a loooong month, and i’m happy for all the good memories in it, but also glad it’s done. it’s hard, trying to fit everything in and still do the work in the in-betweens. sigh.
