january 2024 — one second everyday

i’m a bit late with these videos, so here’s the first month of the year!

january was a good month (apart from the bit where i got sick 😅), that started and ended in the north. in the middle of it there was some gardening and composting, talking en français, game nights, lego, lebkuchen, and a lot of caldo verde!

2023, one second everyday

there we go, a whole year in 7 minutes and change!

like always, at the end of the year i have this feeling that lots of things were terrible… but looking at these videos helps contextualize and put events in perspective. yes, we spent a lot of time in hospitals and waiting rooms in 2023 — but we also spent over a month exploring taiwan, redid the garden, saw babies grow, kept in touch with friends, ate lots of delicious meals, hugged loved ones, read books, identified new birds, enjoyed summer, celebrated birthdays, saw projects come to life, grew some vegetables… :) so even if some things were bad, how can a year with all of that in it be called a “bad” year?

may 2024 bring good health — we’ll deal with the rest!

our social batteries have been fully recharged, and we’re ready for the year ahead!

october 2023 — one second everyday

a month that started with the parents here, then us going to the birdwatching festival in sagres, then coming back to normal life, with rain, the new raised bed, mail and trips to the hospital to check on the boy’s never-ending cough.
