Sunday

hurry up but slow down please

i have been away busying myself with work for pennies. painting for friends. writing. making cookies. planning a big secret adventure a huge secret adventure. making little pencilled tables for my 'saving pennies' plan. watching strange films. trips to the beach for ice creams and family time on a windy day. counting the days until christmas. thinking of christmas homemade gifts. sleeping. being creative here---
i have been reading again too. after greece, i fell straight back into work mode which makes me ever so sleepy. so sleepy that when it's time for bed i head to dreamland straight away. it is so lovely to be able to do things now. i hope this grown up nonsense get's easier soon. i am so very exhausted.
visiting the quaint village with father, samuel and sebastian on saturday was so amazing. i saw too many beautiful things i wanted to purchase. we walked along the canal and watched the families on the teeny blue boats. we went to an antique-filled warehouse filled with old musty smells and long lost memories. it was beautiful. i wanted to buy some military buttons. but save-save i must.
the autumnal air is nearly upon us. you can feel it in the windy breezes. you can smell it in the pouring rain. it is a little exciting. although my brain feels confusion - where has our precious time disappeared to?

  6. Oh my darling, I feel the same way about christmas! I wait and wait for it, but when I realized only yesterday that the sun was setting so much sooner, I was sad! Even though it means that autumn and snow and big fuzzy layers will be just around the corner! We are stuck in the in-between, neither here in summer nor there with the falling leaves. Time will change it all, soon enough!

  14. Whilst I am very fond of summer I cannot wait for autumn to swan its way into my life. Your top is very pretty and I very much enjoyed reading your thoughts, too.

  15. It is getting cooler here as well... or at least not so hot. lol I love autumn and I can't wait for it to be here officially. It's my favorite time of year. If I could live somewhere that was autumn all year round I'd be very happy. :D And a friend and I were just talking about Christmas the other day. Quite the coincidence.
