"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Carnaval II

On Monday, Hubby and Middle Son took the afternoon off, and we went to his friend's parent's sítio, country place.
Lovely people, lots of laughter, and a... cottage!!!

The wife, two years younger than I and also an artist, remodeled the run-down, simple house into a cozy, beautiful, welcoming cottage.
They have there all I've been collecting information/pictures/desires about the last years...
   • pink dappled walls
   white washed beams and panelling
   roses, real and pictures
   lavender bushes!!!
   stone balls!!!
   Neem trees!!!
   and on... on... on...
Mama, I waaaaaaaaaaaant a sítio just like it, tooooooo!!!

Roosty with young galinhas d'angolas — guineafowl (Numida meleagris)
