A glorious week in QC~ A week that dreams are made of~
Some trees already at their brightest.. some losing their leaves..and some not turned yet~ The light has changed so much even in the last few days~
We've been to Pine Lake to feed the ducks..the Yacht Club..to see the boats going to sleep..Broomstick caught my eye right away~:)We aren't members..we don't have a boat..but the season is coming to an end ..and we were the only ones there albeit managers..groundkeepers etc..and we just walked quietly around and sat for a few minutes by the beach..It's lovely there~
There's a familiar deck on Pine Lake.. I am aquainted with the lovely owner...and had the pleasure of working with her husband many years ago..I always glance over.. I loved the added touch of whimsy..the pumpkin..I see her potted mum fell over it was so windy~
Weeping Willows are first to show their leaves in Spring..albeit Forsythias..and almost last to lose~
It's a masterpiece out there right now.
Garden clean up starts now.. and it will last pretty much all month..2 hrs for one L shaped bed today and 2 trailer loads..OY.
First time that I can remember that we've had no frost yet in the garden beds..usually by this time.. the impatiens are gone..
Art classes.. Karate..Tae Kwan Do..the activities have started full force..~
On the menu this week.. just to share a few..Marie's Korean Beef that I just keep making again and again.. I add szechuan peppercorns..a super red lentil soup.. I keep hoping my friend will start posting soon..:) and I would have her share it:).. some delish Samosas bought at a newly found Indian Store..way better than I could ever make..Marie's Goat Cheese and Beetroot Salad....the addition of the marmalade was genius:)
Some Martha Stewart Tuiles.. Some dipped in Chocolate. I could have left them in a bit longer..but last yr they cracked..still looking for the best best time in the oven..:). the molds ..stencils I mean, were found through Mary..so many years ago:) Thank you still..They are light and I bet calorie free:)
They always make me think of fall..And that great song..
Autumn Leaves ~ Mr.Nat King Cole..(picked the first Autumn NKC youtube I found)one of my mom's faves..
Very mushy over that song am I~..♥
The last photo:) Are Noahs' lunch napkins.. he's 5..in Kindergarden this year..and his mom packs him a little napkin every day in his lunch:)♥ makes me smile.. she teaches French and he goes to French school..and we are French:)
Le tout..en anglais~)
Now that would get me through every day.. 5 or 75.The notes..
I am lapping up all these days.. because soon I will be in a monochrome world.. with no light to speak of after 4.
C'est la vie!
