"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.

Virgo Energy

Getting that good Virgo energy to continue organize my stuff.

Right now, it's back to my Agenda Project: a bit more of getting all my tels/addresses digitalized and into a printed booklet that I'll just tuck into my yearly agendas; as NO patience any more to keep writing the same numbers over and over. That is, if I ever get it done!
I have to get the latest infos, together with researching 2 or 3 recent yearlies, plus getting info from my previous o-o-old e-edition print-out, saved on some lost diskette (!... ancient!), and which is totally scribbled over. Sounds confusing... well, it does have a certain overwhem factor, so doing it by bits... bitty bits.

Another problem: as done on the comp, I will get distracted by all the cyber goodies...
Among this week's distractions:
• Visiting and catching up on my favorite blogs of my list...
  *  Including Alicia Paulson's blackberry clafoutis, as my mother has fond memories of her mother's, and although as yet I don't know which fruit Vovó (Granny in Portuguese) used, I do so want to get into clafoutis-making. Hubby brought back from Paris an all-clafoutis, salt & sweet, recipe book, but I liked Alicia's adapations, and Ina's pear clafoutis — I LOVE pears! — version better. Also, lovely photos!
• The excellent Mary Corbet's Needle N Thread, with her great video tutorials, that I certainly need as a new-again beginner...
• Lovely tissue paper pom poms took me to Holly to and her blog, Nothing but Bonfires... lots of posts to discover (big smile and clicking away at the mouse!)
• An absolutely scrumptious apple cake recipe and blog at The Pioneer Woman...
• And to explore further:
  * Creature Comforts
  * Little Cotton Rabbits
  * Hashai - AB Chao Always has Clean Counters
  * Orangette
