Lovely Little Things
i´m a bad blogger. bad, bad blogger. but hey, these last two weeks were pretty exhausting. getting up at 5am four times a week and working till 7pm was really tough (for me!).
right now, LL and i are on a little "staycation" in lower austria (we haven´t planned a fancy trip, because we are currently saving for two "special" trips next year!) and so far we LOOOVE it! we´ve seen lots of nature. and lots of fog, which, together with all the pear trees makes the landscape look like straight out of "sleepy hollow". a bit spooky, but sooo beautiful and perfect for halloween. we´ve also found a stray kitty, went to the (petting) zoo and made a day trip to styria. unfortunately i cought a horrible cold, so all further adventures are put on hold until i am feeling a little bit better. meh!
here are 3 things that made me HAPPY the past two weeks:
1.) chestnuts: my godchild collected them for me. i especially love the ones in the first row!
2.) new magazines: o how i LOVE magazines. "flair" is a new german one, which you unfortunately can´t get here in austria ( thank god my parents live close to the german border, hehe). it´s about fashion and interior and the layout is so freakin´awesome! i haven´t finished reading "the simple things" yet, but i saw a raspberry brownie recipe on one of the pages, which is a MUST-TRY pretty soon!
3.) walnuts: thanks to my inlaws we have tons of them. they are my favorite nuts, especially during fall time. i always use them in my apply pies/cakes! *noms*
tell me, do you have more ideas how i could use those walnuts? :-)
