in azores one second everyday

one second everyday — may 2021

may was mostly about azores, hiking, eating and watching birds… bliss! :D

we still worked and did all the things that are required to keep things running, but it was a more relaxed month overall and i think we needed that to reset and gain some strength for the months ahead. onwards!

one second everyday — april 2021

so, april! it was the end of the lockdown, and we’ve gone west and north in our search for fresh air.

some highlights included the long hike on the southwest coast, lots of birdwatching, the return of game nights and some family time too!

march 2021 — one second everyday

spring flowers, bread-making experiments, walking and cycling around the ria, birdwatching and zooming with friends. looking forward to the lifting of some of the lockdown restrictions, to seeing people in real life and to long hikes! :D

february 2021 — one second everyday

february was rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat. many missed days, but also some good stuff.

chatting with friends far away, system updates gone wrong (but saved by backups!), new birds, zoom overload, chinese new year, perseverance on mars, chinese classes, food experiments… and mr. rogers, making us see the good in the world once more. :)

one second everyday — january 2021

a fresh new year… literally!

we spent most of january huddled under blankets, sitting half a meter from the fireplace, daydreaming about a warm house… or of escaping to a sunnier spot. the pandemic rages on in portugal and so we’re stuck at home. still, we try to make the best of it, chatting with friends online, knitting, working, reading and birdwatching. we’re lucky to have the lagoon so close by — it’s been a lifesaver for stretching our legs on a run or bike ride around the salt ponds now and then. we’ve been trying new routines and schedules, and i’ve been losing weight and messing up with some spreadsheets and beeminder. januaries are good for new starts! :)
