Slightly, almost imperceptibly, Autumn is creeping in. It's still warm and damp, the days are still long but the light is changing just a little. The summer fruits are growing less common at the grocery store, the flowering plants are a little thinner.
Nothing particular happened today. I wore comfortable Sunday clothes and found it difficult to focus on how to display them.
I need to clean out the top shelf of my wardrobe.
And dust the dressing table.
And clean the mirror.
But back to the task at hand: shoes and jewels:
The top/tunic/dress is from the sale rack from a local hippy store. The jeans are J Brand and the green cami is from Target (in Sydney). On my feet we have Birkenstocks and Opi's Cuckoo about the Colour on my toes. There's a french scarf clip attached to a silver chain and my sybils on the longer chain. My wedding ring is on that chain too. I always wear the sybils when I travel on planes. I figure that if there is a tragedy they could use them to identify me.
On Sunday I read the weekend papers, fold washing and, should I go out, carry a big bag. This one is co-production from Liberty of London and Jigsaw (Australia).
I love the fabric. So pretty.
And there's the groceries. I make a concerted effort to take my own lunch every day and my kindly spouse looks for suitable, unexpected ingredients to prevent feeding-boredom. This week is was relishes, a new olive oil to use when saute-ing vegetables and some rose petal jelly.
Rose petal jelly! I had no idea such a thing existed. I summonsed my finest, freshest sour dough to learn more.
Nice, but sweet. It needed a balancing flavour.
Peanut butter - perfect. Rose petal jelly is certain to keep this week's eating interesting. Bonus: it contains real rose petals. They're surprisingly chewy.
Lunch tomorrow (and Tuesday) features roasted beetroot, parsnip, swede, onion, potato and sweet potato and a specil guest appearance by some vegetarian sausages that are made from beans and grains. I've had a sneak preview and they are scrumptious.
And that's it really, except for Kate, undertaking her ablutions on the window sill.
I hope you all have a lovely start to your week.
