In spite of almost the almost spring-like temperatures, the buzzing of insects and general outdoor activity we - as a family - feel rather October-y. :-)
Sarah and me took a long walk this morning, enjoying the noises the leaves made when we shuffled through them, spotting squirrels and hares along the way and just reveling in the colours all around us. The picture I took is one of her favourite tree.
We made cookies, just like we promised the kids we would this weekend, back when we didn't know that summer would peek around the corner today. The house smelled like a very creative mix of cinnamon, almonds and grass. I could get used to that.
Now, though, it smells like red cabbage. Last weekend, when we very shivering and huddled under a blanket at the end of the day, my family asked me to do "that thing from Christmas" again. I bought everything to do it this weekend, so I did. Nobody seems to mind.
The mulled wine will stay hidden in the cupboard, though.
