Hi friends,

one month passed since I started my kitchen garden, have a look at the special page to see how it gows.

I really enjoy it, every day I spend a little time in there. It is very relaxing, like a meditation.

Pippa and other stories

Hi friends,

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.
Valentino with Pippa

Pippa, Rex and Lucy

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.

Surprising finding

Hi friends,

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.

It 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.

Anyway, we love the pieces even more now!!

Have a great week-end. Hugs.
