A little bit of softness to you!
Pumpkins! Is it possible to get tired of them?
Another favourite of mine this season is pomegranate! I love everything about it: colour, shape, taste, without saying that it’s loaded in vitamins and antioxidants. Eating a few seeds of it per day is a great way to be kind to our body and to lift our moody! Who doesn’t like to pick seed by seed, take into the mouth and savour the luscious taste of them?
It was 11 pm, a beam of light caught my attention. I went closer and I witnessed my tea light candle last flame. It desired to say good-bye.
The simplicity of gestures and the simplicity of care.
Thanksgiving here in Canada! I’m giving thanks to be here and now, to witness Nature’s exuberance, and for being a student of her teachings on acceptance and letting go.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, being in Canada or not, it’s always time to give thanks!
Adorned with bright red The Earth has been whimsical Provoking the moon Trying to impress the groom The sun is vainglorious
Today’s theme for Tanka Tuesday is poet’s choice. Inspired for all the beauty around here I wrote a tanka to register it. A little act of kindness for me and for the Earth. Hope you enjoy!

How do you like your coffee? Mine is black and strong, I add a stick of cinnamon to brew together with it during the autumn and winter. The fragrance is wonderful and the taste just a little bit mysterious, the kind that makes you wonder what is it? A morning act of kindness for me and hubby during these cold days.

Happy mail this week! A few of the books I’ve bought arrived. I’m excited to read them. I’ve started The Book of Longings, few pages into it and I’m already in love with the main character ‘Ana’. This is the newest book by Sue Monk Kidd, her writing is loaded with emotion. I Capture the Castle was introduced to me by Jane from Fragglerocking.org and A Gentleman in Moscow by my dear friend Grace. And of course, a mystery book for October, so The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, the reviews are excellent for this mystery.
As you can see, new books are a few of my favourite things, I’m spreading kindness towards myself giving me the pleasure of holding a new book in my hands. I’ve just remember the song ‘My favourite Things’ – Julie Andrews:
Raindrops on roses And whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things
