The village lane has been busy with farming traffic this week
Everyone has been making hay . Under this pile of hay is a man driving a small blue van !
and under this huge bundle is an 84 year old woman !
This is same woman with the easier task of tending her goats. The hessian sack she wears is very versatile , it keeps the rain off in Winter and the sun off in Summer
Meanwhile I have been getting to grips with some English grammar on my TEFL course
and continuing to paint jars
in a variety of colours and styles.
My neighbour brought me a “present” of a 1.20 metre snake skin that he discovered in his potato patch
I just hope I don’t bump into it’s previous owner !
I visited friends for afternoon tea in the pretty village of Libereiro. They showed me their lovely garden and the beautiful house they have available for rent . So if you fancy a holiday .. I know a lovely place to stay .
FInally I had a Portuguese lesson whilst enjoying a walk in the countryside close to Penela
In between trying to get my head around Portuguese pronunciation I managed to take a few photos.
