Let me tell you about the past week.
I had the week off from work so it was a great opportunity to visit friends and family (which are all far away) and an opportunity to go buy some supplies for my crafts. So by thursday I went to Lisbon. I had this day just for myself so I went to the mall to the craft supplies shop. I had to take the chance, because my local supplies shop just closed, but SURPRISE! This one doesn’t exist anymore either. It’s official I have to start buying some things on the internet. Unfortunately the stuff I wanted from a web site are sold out, so alas, I guess I’ll have to wait or search them elsewhere. But not everything was bad. My hubby bought me a stork scissor. I wanted it for so long 😀
The rest of thursday and friday went really well. Spend some time with friends and family and went to see an exhibition about the portuguese presence in WWI.
Friday night we went to my hometown Évora, home sweet home. The family was fine but my dog wasn’t. He’s already 13 years-old so it’s normal to start having some problems. He’s been doing some tests because he’s going to have surgery, his tail needs to be cut off. And as if this wasn’t enough a bacteria cause an infection near his eye. He looked so awful, my poor dog. Fortunately he’s doing better now but the surgery is yet to come and he has heart problems 😦 I have to keep thinking positive.
But to end this post in a happy way, my visit to my hometown permit me to bring some of my books. I love the classics so I brought “Paradise Lost”, “Frankenstein”, “Wuthering Heights”, “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and “The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe” among others.
And the best part was that in Lisbon I bought another book to add to my collection. It’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Tales”. I bought this in portuguese for a change, sometimes I need a rest from the english books. This is a wonderful edition with a black and red cover, even the pages edges are red. Can’t wait to read it but first I need to finish my current bedside book H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories”.
