WEATHER | Part sunny, part grey. Some autumn rain. Overall, a lovely weekend weather wise.
ACTIVITIES | The only thing I had planned for this weekend was to catch up on Project life + start putting my ‘Week In The Life’ album together.
FOOD | On Saturday I made myself a burger, on Sunday we enjoyed a cheese platter, accompanied by a wonderful red wine. There were cinnamon buns this weekend too.
OBSERVATIONS | For the best part of the weekend I was home alone. Joost spent the weekend in Dublin, visiting a friend. I enjoyed my alone time, which was perfect for catching up on memory keeping projects. I also enjoyed watching some tv series: The Good Wife in particular, followed by some good old Gilmore Girls (never gets old, even though I know most of the lines by heart). Early Sunday afternoon Joost returned from his trip and I started cleaning and rearranging our bedroom (which doubles as my office). Put a shelf up above my desk + cleared some clutter. Very happy with the result. In the evening we watched a few episodes of Homeland. All in all a quiet, but lovely weekend.
This picture was taken at my parent’s place last week. What I love most about it, are the old rooftops of the shed and the house next door. I took this picture one early morning; it was still warm enough to be outside for a bit without a coat. It has been a weird autumn so far – weather wise. Only right now, as I write this post, it feels like autumn weather is finally here. Early morning, blanket wrapped around me, writing and drinking coffee. Pure bliss, if you ask me. I’ve been longing for these kinds of autumn mornings for a while now. I love the coziness that cold, dark weather brings. I love wearing cardigans, sweaters, mittens, a scarf! I love the light of candles and twinkel lights in the morning (well, all dy to be honest). And while this year seems to go down as the warmest year in history for this small country of ours, I cannot help but hope for a rainy and grey autumn, followed by a cold and white winter. Fingers crossed!
I first started blogging in 2004. Which means that I’ve been documenting my life and the things I love online for ten years. The first two years I blogged in Dutch on a platform that no longer exists. Those archives are long gone. And even though the archives of 2006-now are in my possession, this is the first post on this blog. At least for the foreseeable future. Because it is taking me some time to sort through all of the posts: I want to remove dead links, find lost photo’s etc. So bear with me for now, and enjoy the new content!
