The end of Summer is near

Hi everyone, 

chill is in the air and the smell has changed. The Summer is nearing its end.
I am looking forward to burning candles and wrapping myself in this throw I made last year.
It is so great to snuggle in. 

I am also looking forward to soups and mashed potatoe dishes with veggies.
Homebaked pancakes and all things you don't normally eat that much in Summer. Well we don't. Summer is mostly for lighter dishes and salads.

We don't have a lot of apples on the trees this year. We had a lot last year.
I am looking forward to homemade applesauce of our own apples.

I hope you're having a wonderful end of Summer too.

Windy weather

Findus enjoying himself inside.

Today it seemed like Autumn had arrived. Hurricane Bertha blew across our country too. Fortunately not at hurricane power anymore, but with lots of wind and rain.
It was nice to stay in and hear the rain ticking on the windows.

I have been busy lately and not much on the computer. I have been baking, cooking and knitting. Reading was also one of the things that filled my time.
Sometimes days go by when I only check my mail and even not only that.
When the weather gets colder I will be back here, I'm sure.
Now I'm just enjoying Summer and all that comes with it.

I hope you're all having a great time too.
