November

Hello ladies!
I just got back from work, prepared little one a snack -he's always hungry when we come home although he's had lunch at school- and sat at my desk to wish you all a wonderful, sweet, cosy November and show you a few of the things we did over our stay-at-home weekend.
Soooo, ...
...there was changing pots to some newly acquired herbs (thyme and oregano); I know this sounds more like a spring task but the little plants were a gift



... there was a ♥ precious ♥ family breakfast


... there were beautiful colours in the sky (please ignore the rooftops)


... there was a delicious, warm meal on Sunday



...there was lego-playing while mum was ironing (imagine whole mountains of clothes)


...and 'pic-nicking' on the living-room floor (the piles of clothes you see is the 'food')

...and of course, there was coffee, home-made biscuits and a good book

...and, needless to say, more coffee, cake and the same good book.
How was your weekend?


While thinking about November, these two ideas sprung to mind:
film: Sweet November (listen to this song by Enya-gorgeous!)
and
Can you suggest anything else relating to this month?
Enjoy what's left of autumn and be prepared to welcome winter (scarves and gloves all ready here)
Take Care

Lovely post Yiota!! I love your photographs (the lego made me smile...my two played with that non-stop!) and I loved the trailer for this movie (I also love Enya!).

November..it's my birth month. That's generally all I can ever say about it as I truly have never cared for it. However...you've given me a "goal" - to find something about November to make it sweet!! ♥

Definitely a book that can be read once a year for one's entire life!

What a beautiful view of the sky! Nothing like a quiet day at home in November.

Your bread box is so cute. nostalgic. Now that I'm making bread perhaps I should get a bread box?! :) ... hmmm that would mean sacrificing more countertop space tho' & there never seems to be enough of that.

Legos...I think they must rank up there on the top 10 best toys of all time :)

Happy November too and it's still very autumnal 'yay'

I'm reading A Secret Garden at the moment too! I just bought it in a charity shop. I did read it when I was little but don't recall being terribly impressed with it at the time. Second time round I still wouldn't say it's one of my favourites, sorry! I'm about 2/3 of the way through, where are you?

I love the picture with the rooftops - more please! It's just so different to here.

By the way, I've nominated you for not one but two blogging awards(!) - see my last post for details. You're not obliged to accept!
