The Bucket List – Autumn

I’ve said it countless times, I’ll say it again: I L-O-V-E autumn! Especially late September/early October, when you can still remember the sweet summer sunshine and appreciate the cold mornings and crisp leaves even more. Everybody is quoting F. Scott Fitzgerald at the moment – Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. Well, what can I say, it’s so true! Autumn has always been a really productive time for me, the time to start new and get those goals done, that I have wanted to work on all summer. And after a creative and long day, there’s nothing better than sitting down with a cup of coffee, listen to the rain outside, get the knitting needles out and just relax. Here’s what else I will be looking forward to:

eating | so much comfort food. Käsespätzle, Maultaschen, Pillekuchen, Mutzen, those are all great German dishes to eat this time of year. It can’t be translated, but look it up and try it, it’s seriously the most delicious thing ever.
drinking | lots and lots of chai latte as I’m trying to master making it at home. And of course, hot cocoa, coffee and tea, anything warming.
practicing | new habits. Getting some writing done in the morning, just for fun, exercising, eating healthy…I’ve all started those things, now I just have to stick to it.
learning | I’ve just signed up to Skillshare and can’t wait to start my first course. I’m especially intrigued by calligraphy, so it will probably be that.
finishing | Already finishing the second scarf this season. I’m going to start a really big one next, let’s hope it takes a little longer to finish it…
reading | I’m quite proud, I finished every single book from my summer reading list. Next up are The Mill On The Floss by George Elliott, The Scarlett Letter, Where’d you go Bernadette? And maybe some Austen or Brontë again. my favourite authors to read this time of year.

    Your ‘projects’ and new habits sounds so good! Makes me want to get started on some of it, too – e.g. learning new skills, and knitting again. :)
    Oh, and I’d LOVE to have some Maultaschen, but unfortunately I can’t get them over here. At least no vegetarian ones. And I’m not even gonna try making them myself ;)

      That’s so sad, I couldn’t live without maultaschen and i’ve actually thought about trying my own, is it so hard? aren’t there some kind of vegetarian dumplings in london that might taste similar?
      didn’t know you were a vegetarian by the way!
