here & now

img_9032I am sat alone in the quiet with the swish of traffic outside and an every-now-and-then sigh from the dog. There is the promise of a bright October day slowly emerging through the grey.

There is a week off work sprawling before me like an unfamiliar and exciting landscape {do you like the drama I am creating there??}. The reality may not be quite so exciting, but I am going to make the most of it, not matter what.

Lately, I have been reflecting on how life changes, new habits and ways of being slip in, almost unnoticed. As my son gets older he wants more time on his own and while I totally get this I have still found it hard at times. Then, I remember the 16 nearly 17 year old me and I get it even more. He needs time alone, not because he doesn’t want to be with us, he needs time alone because that is healthy. So, I have decided that I am not going to worry I just need to let it be.

I have finished this book {eventually!}. A thoroughly enjoyable and unusual read that made me cry and had me fascinated, too. I have just started reading this and am enjoying it so far. The characters are interesting, both living and dead, and I look forward to reading more.

This weekend I am planning to make this. I made a golden syrup cake last weekend and it was delicious and like the recipe says, it really does improve with age.

How is your here & now, I would love to know?

You are soft hues and burnished trees

You are morning mists, crisp air and clear skies

You are rosy wasp-eaten apples, fallen to the ground

You are memories of small feet running through leaves

You are the smell of wood fires and damp earth

You are candles lit as nights draw in

You are all these things and so much more

You are Autumn

As you can probably tell I am enjoying this season here in my corner of the world. I am feeling content and positive and so ready for slower days and cosy nights.

I am also looking forward to joining in with Just Five Things, a beautiful offering from Michelle. If you are able to, then I would definitely encourage you to take part, it WILL be wonderful.

What are you enjoying here and now?
