Novas rotinas

Que acordar diferente o de hoje…uma nova fase e uma nova forma de estar na vida começam a tomar forma.

Olhem este nascer de dia (vá, às 9 e tal da manhã, mas para nós foi o nascer de um novo ciclo) :

Que seja o início de muitas coisas boas!


New beginning

So…The move is all done, we are amidst chaos and boxes and have basicly no furniture whatsoever. But it already feels so much like home!

First night and morning in our home and feels good! Now, onward to the stuff we need!

So interesting this all took place during the new moon and the eves of All Hallow’s Eve. Symbolic of ending of cycles and new beginnins!

Happy Halloween/Samhain, everybody!

Eventful weekend

So, yeah.

It is moving weekend. So much stuff to do!

Good thing is I took the next week off of work, since I still had vacation days from my last contract – that way I’ll be able to sort out the stuff after coming back from my hometown with the billion things I have there and that we need for our little nest.

Wish me luck!


Repeat of The Physics of the Quest

The beautiful soul at has shared this recently and I had to pass it along! It is sound advice!


I’ve posted this before.  I’m posting it again.  Now is as good a time as any.  I just like to remind myself, occasionally, that this is what it’s all about.  I am going out, don&…

Loucura de Novembro | November Madness

Ora então, um pequeno update: decidi tentar novamente o NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), depois de o ano passado ter fugido dele a 7 pés e em 2014 ter chegado apenas às 3000 palavras.


Para ajudar à festa, incentivada pela minha amiga Rita (do blog From Pemberley to Milton, espreitem!), decidi que este ano vou arriscar numa coisa que nunca fiz: Fan Fiction. [bem, se calhar fiz nos tempos áureos da adolescência, criando estórias sobre os meus ídolos musicais e heartbreakers da altura, os BackStreet Boys – que por acaso parece que estão a fazer um comeback este ano, sabiam? Coincidências espantosas!]

Ora tendo estes dados presentes, não vos será surpreendente a revelação que a minha proposta para este NaNoWriMo, em Fan Fiction, seja com base no clássico de Jane Austen, “Orgulho e Preconceito”. Se quiserem saber um bocadinho mais do que se tratará, podem ver na página: da minha novel deste ano.

Partilho com vocês esta loucura, pois sei que assim assumo um compromisso público e sinto-me mais “obrigada” a cumprir! 😀 Ajudem-me a conquistar este objectivo!

Well then, a small update: I have decided to try again doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), fter having fled from it like the devil from the cross last year and having only reached 3000 words in 2014.


To help this party, with incentive from my friend Rita (@ the From Pemberley to Milton blog, have a look there!), I decided that I was going to venture into something I have never done before: Fan Fiction. [well, I may have donesome of that during my teenage golden days, making up stories about my music idols and hearbreaker, the BackStreet Boys – who apparently are making a big comeback this year, did you know? Amazing coincidences!]

Now then, having all this data in mind, it should not surprise you when I reveal that my proposition for this NaNoWriMo, in the Fan Fiction category, is based on Jane Austen‘s classic, ‘Pride and Prejudice’. If you want to know some more about what it will be, you can check the page for my 2016 novel. (and yes, I will be writing in English, which is an added challenge for a non-native, especially because it should not be contemporary English to be historically accurate).

I am sharingthis madness with you because I knowthat taking on this project in a public manner I will feel more “forced” to comply!:D Help me conquer this objective!
