again it has been
a long time since I wrote on my blog. Pippa...who is Pippa? She is a
cute little dog that was abandoned near our house. Immediately we
started taking care of her. Food, water and a place to sleep.
Fortunatelly the construction of our new barn was just finished and
Pippa found a warm place in there.
Thanks to a
friend we already found a new family for her (we already have three
dogs and can't cara another one (although we would love to).
She will be
flying to Germany on March 24th.

A few month ago
our mayor started a project of community vegetable gardens. They got
a piece of land and it was divided into plots. A friend of mine got
one and now she has a beautiful vegetable garden. We now change our
products. I got rucola and radishes and she got fresh eggs. Today
I'll meet her again and she will get some fresh goat cheese. I hope
that next month we can start with our own vegetable garden.

yesterday we have
been at our local flea market, just to have a look after a long time
we haven't been there. We came home with a lovely set of creamer and
sugar bowl, we loved the look of it. Once at home I had a closer look
and on the bottom of each peace I found the mark BMP
Canada. I googled it and surprisingly I discovered that it was a
famous pottery production during 1947 to 2004. If you are interested
have a look here and here.
is just surprising how we could find such a piece here, in the middle
of the Atlantic Ocean, probably it was brought here by some emigrant
who was there and came back to the Azores.
