I know that every fall there is an immense amount of pictures of golden yellow trees on my blog and this year is no exception, I just can't help myself. On the last day of November I took my camera along when going to buy bread and caught all these beauties in sunny shades. I too was wearing fall colors.
There is one week left of term and the week is fully booked. Hope though the last week in London on this side of new years will be nice and sunny. At least one can hope.
Hope you all will have a great weekend.
A cold and sunny Saturday in London today, and I met up with Martin for a walk.
There are two weeks left of term now, and I feel this fall has passed by so quickly. Perhaps I haven't been as active a blogger as I normally am, but most of my time I have spend inside writing and have not taken too many photos. But when weather is nice like today it is great to take a walk with my camera and get a bit of sunlight.
After a day of doing a lot of manual labor I decided to walk the way home from Old Street as I had to swing by the post office to pick up some books on the way. After a rather wet morning, the sun had come out and made all the yellow leaves even prettier. I had the sun in may back heading east and the sky turned more and more beautiful as I came closer to home. As always I am just really fascinated with all those great colors the sun can make, it somehow fits perfect with the fall.
Ronan came yesterday for a spontaneous one night visit to London.
Today we went out for breakfast, apparently a little too early for regular Londoners on a sunday. Everything was closed so our direction kept changing and our appetite building until we reached 5E Bakery. It was nice to try something new for a change, I have never sat down to eat there before. As always there was so much yummy bread and cake, but I settled for some yogurt and of cause a cup of coffee.
Another completely stunning sky in London today. It felt like it was on fire and I kept turning my head while riding my bicycle to see if it had changed or still looked amazing.
It seems that these days all I bother to take my camera out of my backpack for, is the sun, the sky and their many nuances. I briefly wish that instead of living on the ground floor of a Victorian house I was living in a skyscraper on the 20th floor to benefit from this.
Recently I made Bacon Jam for the first time, and also a glass of Lemon Curd and Toasted Orange Sirup (which I used in the Bacon Jam recipe instead of Marple Sirup). When I saw the Bacon Jam recipe I told myself I had to try it and it was really as good as I thought.
Yesterday morning I baked the first bread in Quite a lot of years; a wholegrain buttermilk bread that had risen overnight in the fridge. It was such a nice thing to wake up to and easy just to put in the oven, and wait for it to finish. We ate it with butter, bacon jam and lemon Curd.
