  1. What a pretty way to end the day! I laughed at the squirrels..such mischievous little creatures they are. I sometimes imagine animals as they’re represented in cartoons…having secret societies and anthropomorphic qualities. With squirrels, this little game of mine seems all too easy! Great photos. πŸ™‚

  2. Gorgeous photos Dippy!

    I love walking through the crunchy leaves. When he was first learning new words, my nephew used to think the countryside was called the “crunchyside” because his feet would crunch on the leaves in autumn. πŸ™‚

    Here in Vancouver most of the leaves have turned to mush in the rain, so it is nice to see piccies of the golden, crispy versions!!

    1. Hello Josy, ‘crunchyside’ is the bomb. Your nephew and you just introduced me to the cutest word in my vocab. Hah. I love walking on dry leaves too. Feels just right. As I write this, I can see the men in the park with their tiny and big trucks clearing out the mounds of leaves. I want to clout them but hey they are doing their job after all. The days are turning out beautifully for some time now so I am sending golden vibes your way in Vancouver πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Mary. That is a beautiful compliment. I actually cannot wait for winter though the cold here promises to be blistering πŸ™‚ How are you feeling now? I know you were not quite keeping well. xx


  3. It always makes me so happy to see one of your wonderful posts come up on my reader because your writing always inspires me to go and write myself – you describe everything so beautifully, from the world around you to your thoughts. Also, caramelised pecans sound incredible -definitely need to start adding those to my salads as soon as possible! Hope you are having the best weekend Xx

    1. Maria, you have a lovely heart. I mean that…not everyone can appreciate another so generously. A big hug. And yes those caramelised pecans (with maple syrup) hit the right notes. I am indeed having a nice weekend, looking forward to gaining ground on crocheting and just mooching around πŸ™‚ You too have the perfectly relaxing one, my love. xx


  4. “The problem with smidgen is that it tends to balloon into mammoth proportions and then you are caught right under the heaviness of it” – so well-said. I like the smidgens-analogy for little moments of self-doubt that gradually increase! Lovely!

    I liked that 3rd photo, the shot upward into the trees. So uplifting!

    So glad you ended up cozy and warm. Me too!

  5. Wow! I turned on the Eric Clapton video and began reading your blogpost and seeing your amazing photos. It’s making me feel so nice and cozy right now. We’ve just got back from Lex’s youngest sister’s wedding. It was a bit exhausting so it’s really great to relax and catch up on your latest post. – Neek πŸ™‚

  6. Dear, every time I read your posts, I feel like I’m reading a novel. God, I may have said this to you so many times already but I won’t get tired repeating it. You write so beautifully! I’ve never experienced Autumn in my whole life and it’s so pretty!

    1. Just for these joy-inducing words on a fine Friday morning, I am willing to gather bunches of these golden leaves and flinging them your way so that you can bathe in their golden beauty and soak in autumn. But no worries my lovely, one day you will see it all with your own eyes and feel glorious. xx
