What a perfect moment to browse some fall favorites:
If you're not into pickling, how about drying apples? It's a easy activity with minimal need for any kind of equipment. You could get a de-hydrator, but why waste electricity when you can take advantage of your warm house?
Five easy steps to dried apple bliss:
1. Get some apples.
2. Dig out the cores.
4. Hang up trough the core holes.
5. Wait till dry and put in airtight jar.
As an added bonus this activity also fills your house with delicious apple smell.
And what about books, you ask? Is there anything lovelier than sitting by the fire/heater reading a good book? Obviously not.
I just finished and heartily recommend Julie Orringer's book of short stories, How To Breath Underwater.
I was so busy this summer, that reading short stories was often the best solution, as you could finish one and move onto the next without having to wait for days what might happen next.
Another good, though more mixed, collection, was Rebecca Curtis' Twenty Grand: And Other Tales of Love and Money.
Mixed meaning that there were some that I adored and others that were utter rubbish. Sadly that's often the case with short stories.
And what to wear? Why dreamy red velvet, or maybe corduroy, of course.
Like this pretty from strawberrykoi
A good rucksack, school bag, or anything from forestbound, should hanging on your shoulder(s).
And for those of you still dreaming of spring and summer I recommend one of these amazing headdresses by which.goose.
As for other entertainments, netflix, or better yet support your local videostore, or better yet (if you live near a cinema, unlike me) see them in the theatres, see Jennifer's Body, The Hurt Locker, Bright Star, The Vintner's Luck, or I haven't given you enough variety, ANY OTHER movie by women (produced, written, directed).
Album of the year turned out, after all to be Upper Air by Bowerbirds. Listen to them.
That's fall folks!
