Today I don’t have just one topic. Several things happened and I want to share them. Let’s start with two things from yesterday evening. First, most of the afternoon we had a fire close to the house, and it just filled the air with smoke… We’ve been having a lot of fires this Summer…not a lot of people getting arrested though… 🙁 I took a photo of what I could see from the bedroom window.
Then, for dinner, I made a pizza with spinach and the leftovers from lunch – with added mozzarella slices =) It was really really good. I don’t know why but lately the pizza dough turns out different every time, even though I make it exactly the same way… but last night’s was perfect. Just as Pizza Hut’s Pan pizza, without all the oil. =) Just as we like it! =) Below there’s the before and after!
Now, the events of today. Today I had my mom and grandma here with us for some hours because they came for a funeral.One of my cousins died on Thursday and they drove to Lisbon today to be at the funeral and be with the rest of the family. Even though it was a cousin that I hadn’t seen in a while, it always sucks… it’s family.
They were here for a few hours and actually got me some things, and these are the two things I want to tell you today. First, my mom got a great deal at a local fair last week and got me a Yankee Candle! =) I have to have my Yankee Candles =) For those of you that don’t know, this is a US brand that is quite rare in Europe. And I love the scents… Thank you mom!
The second one is a traditional liqueur. I adore this strawberry liqueur and I ran out of it a few months ago. =) My parents got me a new bottle! And a big one! =) It will last for quite a while, as you’re not supposed to have a lot each time you drink it. The company that makes these is called Regionalarte and if you’re ever in the Algarve, you should check them out.
Tomorrow I’ll probably write a movie review for “Limitless”. Can’t believe it’s already September. Wow. Sure hope it’s a good month.
Have a great night everyone!
