Happy Autumn to you!
Fall came knocking at my door, I opened and fall entered. It has been a busy week, with a lot of baking: bread and ginger bread, the later going into a regional stew this coming week. And the living room got rearranged; furniture tossed and about. Yes Fall definitely has arrived once again. The bolsters of the chestnuts are growing fat. All is still green, but that won't be for long now.
And who says you have to live outside in the country to enjoy nature? This little beauty stands in the middle of the city near a tall and proud tree. Our old city has lots of trees, especially lime tree that smells so lovely in spring. I love lime tree blossom as a tea in the evening it sooths and relaxes.
And then there are the deep yellow tones that are emerging everywhere this time of year, in the leaves, in this beautiful toadstool and of course in the sheer beauty of the golden autumn light. Which calls for mobiles to be made, to catch those sunbeams as much as we can!
Tell me; do you have your soup pan ready? And your bread baking tin? And your knitting needles? 'Cause there are toast to be knit and sucky thumb mitts. Maybe there will be time for some serious reading on the couch next to the stove, so a trip to the library might also be a good idea.
Oh there is so much to enjoy.
