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! :)
