Because there's more to life than work

Good Things About Autumn No. 2

Leave a comment

Grey dark day outside with drizzle – but lots of bright highlights nevertheless:

1. Managed to complete the final day’s run of my Week 1 running plan – after hurting my knee running in June I’ve not done any for months and it feels good to be building up distances again. I really hate running in the heat anyway – so autumn seemed a perfect time to pick this habit up again.

2. Home made nectarine, vanilla and sour cream muffins mid morning, rustled up by my other half while I was working, served with a cafetiere of strong coffee – honestly, this has to be my perfect coffee break!

IMG_1834Just half quantities of the cake I made last weekend replacing the lemon zest with 1tsp vanilla extract and 1 chopped nectarine instead of the blackberries, cooked for half the time. They were phenomenally good when warm!

3. Making plans that don’t need the weather to be great – knitting group tomorrow morning followed by a trip to a new art exhibition opening in town. Cake and coffee might also be involved…what? It’s the weekend after all 🙂
