The good day!

Today was a really good day! I was feeling like myself and extremely productive. I was able to accomplish many things:

  • I hung two loads of laundry to dry, put a second one on the washer, hung it to dry, washed a white cardigan that had to be bleached for a stain and hung it to dry as well;
  • I wrote emails to 3 professors that I needed to talk to;
  • I got in touch with all my students, to arrange schedules for this week. I wrote many emails, text messages, Whatsapp messages, etc;
  • I washed my kitchen window, doors and walls;

  • I tried to catch up on my blog reading, because I didn’t read much yesterday and I had many posts to read from the people I follow;
  • I followed some new people;
  • I watched half an episode of Call the Midwife (intend to finish later);
  • I cleaned my living room rug with baking soda and Rui vacuumed when he got home;
  • I picked up some flowers for my mantel;
  • I dried and put away the dishes from yesterday’s dinner;
  • We went out for bread, butter and milk;

  1. Wow very productive day indeed! Also, when you do your cookbook, can you please include some vegetarian friendly dishes or variations. I love trying different cuisines. I cook meat for my boyfriend and vegetarian meals for myself. I would love to try your Portuguese recipes! Thank you and best of luck!
