early October in this house

I am writing this whilst staring at the trio of baby pumpkins on the dining room table. The remains of this bad boy are also in my line of vision (the remains equals the cupcake case btw)

I know I should have ironed the place-mats but on a good weather Thanksgiving weekend who has the time?

Its been a good one. The weather has been ace - today is REALLY warm and has allowed me to go and see to the horse, go for a 10km bike ride and walk the dogs. I needed all that exercise frankly to enable me to snarf that cake down.

So a mini update:

Loving - the weather, my new boots, pumpkin pancakes
Wanting - Starbucks pumpkin spice latte - that desire started last week but there is no Starbucks on the west coast of Newfoundland (where I was) - FML

Feeling - tired still from the whistle stop tour of the West Coast and the boat ride that got me there. The overnight one where I got no sleep and suddenly decided that I had a fear of being on a boat.
Sunrise at Port aux Basque as we arrived (it was mighty early!)

Watching - Blood and Oil - new awesome series on CTV and Quantico (that had all the makings of something good but so far the jury is out) oh and the new series of Nashville.
Wondering - if I will ever be in a position to own a home in Florida (one can dream on right?!!)
Knowing - that I could never ever ever ever ever live in the UK again. If I had to I dont think I would ever get over it.
Enjoying - evenings in the hot tub. The weather is perfect for it.
Re-finding - my love of running. Its a slow return but by jove its a return!!!
Changing - the house slowly to Fall. I managed to change around the living room to red

fall weekend day

It's been a gorgeous Sunday. A typical Fall day here in Nova Scotia and I got some photos of our road, which I love.

I managed to spend some quality time with Ace, with my friend ( yeah whilst grocery shopping but that still counts right?) and walking the dogs. I feel kind of sad still that Autumn is now here, I am just not ready. I don't want to let go of summer yet.

Raining and the love of horses

It's raining, like a goodun outside and I love the sound. Last night it was hot still at 10pm and the wind was as Chloe put it "roaring" outside.
For someone who wants to be a meteorologist she really doesn't like any extreme of wind or rain, that could be a deal breaker in that kind of career... Anyway, the windows were open all night as I insisted on it and it was great.
It went on all night and now it's rained all day, it's raining now as I write this, the tap tap tap against the side of the house.

I managed to get up to the barn this evening to a bunch of wet horses. No riding this evening but just being there was truly enjoyable. I saw this earlier and it's one of many very true little ditties... I think I have experienced everything in there including the crazy horses.....
