This needs to be a post on its own but boy, I never knew you can spend so much time in your backyard in one summer. With the coming of winter, I feel that I use half my house only while the other half, the outdoor, disappeared!

I don’t think I’ve ever shopped so much online ever before. And I did shop online a lot!
#10 years of success
And the only thing there is in business is forward.
Welcome to the movies!
Faced with all this time on my hand, I turned, or returned, to learn more and all about video making. It’s just the beginning, not yet bearing much fruit and yes, there will be professional help but, I’m happy to say that I’ve learned a LOT! since this spring. Stay tuned to see what I’ve made with it all and you tell me, if it was worth it!
Took up gardening
What a fascinating world, that of gardening. Between the exultation of beautiful blooms and the fight against pests, there is a lot more drama in gardening than ever thought!
The things un-done
This year there are many. Among the ones that I regret not doing most is the trip to the Grand Canyons – was so much looking forward to it.
My saviour is Creativity
This was my emotional support and it still is. I miss people, I miss many things I used to do but really, I do well on my own and I’m so grateful that I like filling my time with so many interesting things. Are they interesting to you? Maybe not, but they are interesting to me, and that’s what matters. Being self-sufficient is one of the best things for your mental health. My self-sufficiency is tied to my capacity to get gratification out of what my own mind imagines. This is real power.
Work is not everything but it is important. It is most important for those who cherish what they do. My favourite designed furniture completed this year, a relatively small, perfectly proportioned, super-practical and elegant front hall console. Very proud of it!
What a blast. This city is to reckon with. Art, architecture, history, beauty, food and most of all, the people. People everywhere, crowds flowing like rivers of laughter, talk, children crying, colourful gesticulating hands up in the air, the rush of life on every street and in every corner. A city like no other, Barcelona, for me, is a place to always return to. Will be there again, soon enough..
the little things
And a million ways of dining at home
Even though not all answered, we all should learn to ask the questions bluntly
