one second everyday — december 2017

lots of cats, xmas cards, some food experiments, meeting friends, family days…

… and then, a jump to france for the second edition of our new year’s yodel camp! :)

one second everyday — november 2017

november was a quiet month, spent mostly at home.

we worked and did all the mundane little things that life is made of. william-the-black-cat slowly lost his fear of humans. the first rains came, but they were short-lived. our friend lynda came to visit too, and helped us test the new travel mode in postcrossing. i finally put some order on my photo backups. we helped neighbours move. and then, the battery on my phone went kaputt towards the end of the month… so we skipped a few days here and there.

one second everyday — october 2017

october was… eventful.

as soon as the month started, we jumped to morocco for some days of hiking in the atlas. at home, we worked, watched some concerts, attended the local “dev day” and tried to make friends with william, the neighbourhood’s black cat. towards the end of the month, we spent a week exploring córdoba, an unexpectedly nice surprise.

one second everyday — september 2017

breaking the pattern of good septembers past, last month was a bit of a trying month… and the first month in a long while that i missed a few seconds here and there.

despite this, there were good things to be celebrated. the parents and dani were in town for a bit. the “mediterranean diet fair” brought some music and excitement to tavira. lots sunny days. new postcrossing stamps. and inbox zero, for the first time ever!

one second everyday — august 2017

august! this is definitely the best part of the year in northern europe, with long sunny days that aren’t quite as sticky hot or packed with people as in the south. so we made a sort of escape plan and said goodbye to algarve, bribed the neighbours to water our plants, and left on a mission to catch up with friends we don’t get to see that often.

and it worked! we’ve had the best august i can remember, spent reconnecting with some of the people and places we miss the most. it was so hard to select the seconds for this video because the month was just overflowing with good memories.

the dodgy back threw me into bed for a few days, but after some rest with pablo-the-cat‘s company, i was back in business! :) too many highlights to mention — just happiness all around!
