Autumn colours

I love autumn colours. They are so warm and bright at the same time.
As I am at home for 2 weeks due to a small car accident, I can afford myself to go to the park with my dog every day.

I couldn't resist to bring these wounderfull colours at home...

And by the way - what do you think about seasonal cooking. I've got this marvelous book for my birthday - Jamie At Home. I just love it!!! Not only for the recipes - which are easy to make, traditional and yet modern at the same time - but also for the beautiful pictures this book is full of. I am not too much into cooking books as they cost a fortune nowadays, but this one I am really glad to have in my collection.
Well, anyway what I wanted to show you is my pumpkin creation from that book. Just plain baked pumpkin with herbs and wild mushrooms I picked when I was in Russia on vacation.

Very tasty with some aked pork.

And to finish up for today some more autumn colurs inspiration for you...

Have a nice and cosy Sunday!

It's quite a while since my last post here.
I am back from my wounderfull vacantion in Russia and Karelia. It was such a lovely experience, as you can see.
Felix travelled with me - that was his first flight and it all went so smoothly. I am so proud of him!
There are a lot of changes in my life since my last message. I don't want to make you too curious, but I think I will wait just a bit with telling you all the news. The only thing I can mention at the moment - I will move again probably in 2010.
I haven't been too productive lately on the craft field. No time, no time... and too tired in the evenings. My eyes are so tired that I can't see what I am knitting, which just can't result in anything good. But I miss my crafting, so I still try to knit 2-3 raws per evening.

October in Belgium is a rainy, dull month. It's so grey and depressing outside. I am trying to compensate it with nice and warm colours in my clothes and around the house. And you, what do you do to fight the grey autumn feeling?
