All These Things That I've Done: Autumning Part One


Autumning is totally a word and it is something I have been doing for the last three months. I love crunchy leaves and crisp days with clear skies. We've had a fair few wet days as well in the mix but I do love making the most of this time of year (and every time of year).

So what does autumning involve? Well in my case it has involved studying, volunteering, writing, sleeping, adventuring and cooking. Here are some pictures to provide a bit of a recap of what I have been doing with more to follow next Wednesday!

Celebrating the weekend with Lemon Drizzle Cake and Tea

Also: Listening to Records - such a fab Autumn Past-time

Tea with friends - there has been a lot of this in a lot of places!

Veggie Curry - an excellent warming dish for this time of year

Lazy hours where I have been able to grab them, daydreaming about holidays and drinking yet more tea!

All These Things That I've Done: Night in the Garden

Royal Botanic Gardens at Night
Never let it be said I am not a woman of my word.  I wrote a list of things I wanted to do to keep the winter blues at bay and I have been doing just those things! At the start of November I went to the Royal Botanic Gardens with Mr Mac and it was just beautiful.

CDs on sticks have never looked so good
I don't think I can really do it justice with words.  Basically it is a beautifully lit glasshouse, a lovely lake with light and music, Inverleith House lit up and some trees lit in a way that makes them look beautiful. That is it. But it is so much more than that too.  If you are in the area I would really recommend going because it is just so beautiful.

Trees are fantastic 
I would really recommend going and as it only runs until Sunday 23rd, time is running out. What are you waiting for?  Book tickets now!

See - lit up trees - magical


For a change most of these photos were by Mr Mac as I was just staring up into trees in wonder. But he generously let me post them here.

Monday Music: All about Taylor Swift

I heard the new Taylor Swift song and was immediately obsessed.  So here it is in case you live under a  rock.



And here is a Taylor Swift dancing in a car to this song.  She is my spirit animal.
