One of the routines that remains is to hike on weekend when it doesn’t rain. It keeps me motivated and alive.
Entering autumn, the air became more humid and it gets colder day by day. It was friday and it was raining. The sky was grey and my tomatoes plants were shivering outside. Fortunately sun was expected the next day. Continue reading →
