Red day in the city

Campo dos Mártires da Pátria

Today I passed by a monument in Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, dedicated to a medical doctor - Dr. Sousa Martins - born in 1897 and renowned for his work amongst the poor in Lisbon. After his death, a secular cult has arisen around him in which he is thanked for "miraculous" cures. These are the stone plates lying at the feet of his statue, each with a special thanks or intention.

Glove knitting (not by me!)

I found these amazing items in Ravelry, a while ago, before I even knew how to knit ( my apologizes to the talented autor for not having written down her/his name)
Aren't they amazing?

A Blog I Like: "Water and Wool"

A creative and healthy approach to food and life in general. Sasha is the talented girl behind scenes.

These days...

Mia gets front row seats to watch TV,

I try on summer clothes, dreaming with warm beach days,

We wake up late on weekends,

Get to know new places in town with free wi-fi,

Relax, doing nothing but hanging out,

Watch the rain sitting inside the car,

Feed the ducks in the park,

And walk, walk, walk...
