In my mind October sounds like Autumn. September still rings with the sound of warm afternoons, sunshine and those last few weeks of summer. But October. October tends to be associated with words like blustery and cozy and nesting and soup. In October I tend to take stock of things- I make lists. I clean out and tidy up. I part with things no longer useful to us and stock up on things we may need for the coming months. Maybe it is a part of our nature, preparing for those long cold winter months where the weather isn’t welcoming and the idea of going out in it isn’t all that appealing. There is something wonderful about sending people off to school or work for the day and then having the house to yourself, to put things in order, plan meals and feel productive. Add to that a great playlist in the background, a few gorgeous candles burning and a fire going and you have what I would consider the perfect Autumn day~
I made THIS delicious soup last week.
I love a SIMPLE LOAF filled with spices.
I will be making THIS chai today- as chai is one of my favorites.
Have a wonderful October mes amies!
