No photos yet...

Hello, everybody!
My camera is fixed, thank gods (what could I do without it?!), it was nothing but a misplaced cord, but now I can't post the photos I took, because ther's always a "failure" box coming every time I try to. Arght! Uunless you guys have an Orkut account, I just managed to post there for family and Brazilian friends. Anyway... Last week was so busy! I got a cold - of course I'd get it, my body is still getting used to the weather! But luckly I never stay more than two days sick, so after an afternoon of sleep and a cup of warm French basil I woke up feeling better.
I spent most days putting things in order (specially Lucas's toys - this boy has too many of them!), cleaning pans, washing clothes, cooking, etc, etc. While I was busying around I listened almost non-stop to Steve Ray Vaughan's Life by the Drop song. I just love this man, and lately this song got my heart, since I found it again among our cds, Sometimes I get stuck with a song and want to listen to it endless times. I don't know if you're like me, but sometimes I get poor Rodrigo crazy with this habit! LOL
The family room is the emptiest place, because we will still have the book shelves made by my inlaw (remember that in Rio there was a built-in set of shelves for them?). So, we only have our sofa, TV/DVD set, and Baruck & Misquin bed. Our bedroom is almost completed, but I still need to have some frames to be made for my beautiful goddesses images. The kitchen is the place that has most things in order, as well as Lucas' room.

I'm slowly getting into this new routine of being entirely for my house, not needing to worry about being late for work and vice-versa. It's something completely new for me, since I work outside full-time since I was 17! It's a pleasure to take care of little details, to plan meals, keep things in good order and feel connected with Nature around me (although Baruck is trying my patience leaving "little presents" at Lucas' bed the other day, and also this morning at our sofa. Seems like he's confused about this new place, I don't know... It's just disgusting to find those... masses of "digested food" around twice the same week). Rodrigo leaves everyday early in the monrning for the coffee harvest in the chilli hours! I stay in bed just a little bit longer, then my day starts.

By the way!!! Thank you so much for all the great comments about our cold weather! Loved reading everyhint you friends said. 12ºCelsius is the average temperature sometimes reaching 10ºC, which IS REALLY COLD for our standards! We do want to install an inside roof next year before Autumn starts, because it would really be hard to deal with this every year (Holly, be sure we are really warm here and only one couple of seasons will be fine fo rus to stand! Thank you for your concern, girl!). So we'll start saving some money, gods know how! :o) IN the end everything finds the right way to happen, so I'm relaxed (or almost). Thanks you for the support and lovely words.

Oh, I plan to make a pagan garden somewhere at our place, and I found this at Patti Wigington's newsletter: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/lithathesummersolstice/ss/ElementalGarden.htm . How cool! Exactly what I wanted. I'll start making this this weekend if everything goes well.

Well, gotta go now, and I hope next Monday I manage to post the photos I took during the weekend! *sigh* Another test for my anxiety, I guess... See you then! Have a beautiful week, thread your dreams gently in the meantime.

When I find a new song I like I tend to listen to it over and over also. I almost annoy myself sometimes!

Looking forward to more pictures. <3

I like to play the same song over and over too!

Then I suddenly get tired of it and don't listen again for a long, long time. Weird!

Sorry you are sick! And sorry that Baruck is doing that, you are right, they do that for 2 reasons, one is if they are sick and the other is if they are very stressed. I hope he will settle down and understand he is now safe in a new place. They have such fragile minds.

I will try to stop worrying about the cold temperatures you are having!!!

I feel for you - though these days I don't like too much of heat or cold.
Also it is all relative to what you are used to.
Sorry I haven't been a round, a bit preoccupied these days with one thing and another. I had a big site problem andsorted that and have at last begun to get my book going again.
Take care, dress warm.
Blessings.
I tried to post this yesterday on the previous COLD post but failed.
I would never have thought you would go down to 10C.
Take care.

Can't wait to see pictures! The garden plan looks neat - I love Patti's site.

I'm sorry you were sick but it sounds as if you've bounced back and are busy settling into your new home.

When I really connect with music I listen to the same thing over and over, too. It's like I want to embed it in my mind.

I am fricking out! I do not know what to do please help. Check it out and tell me if you think we should notify authorities

I love this post! I can feel your positive energy and you sound sooooooooo happy!!

I can't wait to see pics of your beautiful home!!!
Why not build a beautiful pagan altar if your livingroom is a bit bare?

hugs!

I'm late to the party, but wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS on getting moved in! The house looks fabulous (in the pictures way down on May 4th) and I'm so excited for you. The garden sounds SOOOO fun - can't wait to see what magic you make!

Sounds like you are a little bird, all fluttering around and nesting in your new home. I am so happy for you! And can't wait to see photos!

Poor Baruck, though, sounds like he's having a difficult time adjusting to the change. He's had a rather rough time the past year, hasn't he? Moving twice, sickness, doggy attacks, having to share his humans with other pets when he used to be "king" of the household. Hopefully, he'll adjust soon and stop leaving you little gifts!

When I find an artist I like, I listen to them over & over again, too! Like Josh Groban, Sarah Brightman, John Mayer, Loreena McKennit... and I never stop listening to my fave-- Steve Perry! Husband just rolls his eyes at me. I find lots of joy in music-- if its a song/artist I like, it doesn't matter how many times I've heard them!

Hugs & kisses!

I'm so glad to see you are adjusting :-) My mom's dog has been peeing at the bottom of my steps on the carpet. I have no idea what her problem is but I am so disgusted by it. We've been so busy lately. V starts dance class in 2 weeks, then preschool this fall! Also, I've been invited to join another website as a writer every Tuesday! I'm totally excited about it! I mostly focus on Twitter since it's short and sweet but this will help me to get back into things.

Miss you!!
