autumn

Good things so far this week:

  • Today is Apple Day. I'm going to enjoy it by having a baked apple with some brown sugar and cinnamon after tea. An apple a day keeps the doctor away!
  • Making pumpkin soup. I like mine with lots of ginger and creme fraiche. 
  • Another cupcake order.
  • Waking up to a mug of freshly brewed loose leaf green tea, thank you Scott. 
  • Still reading Anna Karenina and really enjoying it. Trying really hard not to read any spoilers! 
  • Listening to the Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack on spotify, it is really good. I especially love 'All is Love'. I am listening to it to make up for the fact that the film isn't out until December here.
  • Enjoying the lovely coloured leaves on the trees before they are all blown away and go soggy on the paths and slip me up. 
How is your week so far?

  13. Oh no I missed Apple Day! Oh and I loooved Anna Karenina. I read it while studying abroad in France one summer in high school. It was my only interaction with the english language and I devoured it hours at a time in the sunflower fields in Provence. That reminds me---I'd like to to re-read it!

  16. I love it when I take the time for loose leaf tea instead of a bag. It makes me feel so refined. plus then i can pretend to read tea leaves. I absolutely must see where the wild things are ASAP, it looks so epic.

  22. such a lovely post! mmm, and I'd like to make some baked apple now. Is Anna Karenina a difficult read? I'd like to read it sometime.

    My week's been busy, busy, busy. I'm trying to finish my master's thesis in time.

  24. my week has started off wonderfully. i woke up early this morning and had time to brew myself a lovely cup of coffee and eat some 5 grain toast with vegemite. starting the day with a good breakfast always puts me in a good mood. I havent got Spotify I really want to though - you dont happen to know anyone with a spare invitation up their sleeve do you?!
