|Kichijôji, Tokyo, autumn 2006.|
Here we are. Although we are living a late summer weather in France, Autumn is officially here. Contrarily to most people, autumn is my favourite season. First, because I was a weird little girl who loved going back to school, but not only. Here are a few tiny joys of the Autumn season...
- Enjoy the sweeet scent of fresh mushrooms, at the market or in the kitchen
- Discover the first arrival of fresh walnuts and hazelnuts
- Enjoy a hot chocolate comfortably in the couch while is it cold outside
- Admire the seasonal changes of autumn forests: from green to yellow, orange, red, brown...
- Eat a few grilled chestnuts with the hot chocolate
- Cook some apples with cinnamon, pumpkin with cinnamon, hot wine with cinnamon...
- Light some candles and enjoy TV or a book in the evening
|"Add a few pumpkins, hazelnuts and dead leaves to the home decorations..."|
- Breathe the fresh air and store the ventilator in the cellar
- Wear (at last!) sweats, coats, scarves and gloves, forsaken in summer
- Wander around the red and yellow city
- And jump into the dead leafs!
- Write a new list of new resolutions in the moleskine notebook
- And fail to follow them
- Add a few pumpkins, hazelnuts and dead leaves to the home decorations
- Get to want to eat fondues and hot goeat cheese again
- Pick up walnuts and mushrooms in the forest
- Discover the new pieces of the season: books, TV shows, CDs...
- Remember past autumns...
