Monday iMages & Meme

These are beautiful buildings found in Cascais, Portugal earlier this month. Both are old residences but the one below is currently a charming little hotel with 10 rooms. The (cropped) picture is also my current header.

Both buildings were across the street from our hotel and I simply loved seeing them daily. The details are truly amazing, click to enlarge and see for yourself.

It's meme time!! Our charming and talented Sanni has tagged me with her new meme:

The handwriting MEME

Yes, she wants to see our handwriting.
Her instructions:
1.) Go ahead, get a piece of paper and a pen. Prepared? Okay!
2.) Write a pangram in your language. A pangram, also known as holalphabetic sentence, is a sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet at least once. “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.” is a common example in English. There are pangrams in all languages - for a little inspiration spy *here*.
Sign your paper with your first name or your nickname (not your signature!!!). You can also include your blog URL if you want to.
3.) Take a picture.
4.) Post it on your blog! Leave a comment here (or a trackback) once you have posted.
5.) Link back and tag - don’t be shy!
Yes, it is that simple!

I learned something new, since I didn't know a thing about pangrams until now! and I got to write something else other than my to-do or grocery shopping list... Which was also a nice distraction from my swollen cheek (it's a lot better, thanks for asking and thanks for the get-well wishes on the prior post) Here is my Spanish pangram, which I took from the clever net, including our particular letter Ñ , umlaut over the u between g and e to make it pronounceable, and accents:

  1. I remember the beautiful houses in Algarve, they were all of blue and white tiles with designs I had never seen such houses before. Now the one you show here is absolutely gorgious !
    I still have to do the handwriting thing, but I don't know what sentence to write yet and in what language, french or german ?

  2. Cool pictures - I love the details around the windows. I'll have to try this meme. Seems like fun!
