For the past few weeks my monitor had been sepia most of the time. Not totally broken but on its way to be so.
For Valentine´s day dh bought me a new 17" LCD Philips new one. Not a real V present, because we don´t "do" Valentines here but he wanted me to remember the date. :)
The black and silver thing by the monitor is my mate. Drinking mate is like drinking tea but instead of using a little bit of tea leaves and lots of water, you use lots of tea and a little water at a time. The metal straw is what you use to drink it. It has little holes at the bottom.
My mate is made out of a kind of pumpkin (died black on the exterior) and engraved metal. There are real pieces of art made of silver for more formal settings.
