autumn this year is, well, summer. it's hot, we still go to the beach and we wear flip flops. but the autumn feel is still here. the days are shorter and the sunsets early and pinkish, the air is dry, making the nights colder (and much more comfortable to sleep in). and the garden changes. right now we're having olives, and for the first time we have actually collected and prepared some. the above is one way we have tried. leaving them to dry in the sun for just 10 days or so, covered in salt. then clean them, put them in jars and add some olive oil. they are good! and for me, a northern girl, it's absolutely exciting to eat my own olives.
autumn also means birthday. today i turned 39. how do i feel? surprised. how did that happen? and grateful, because my friend is here this week, celebrating with me and giving me these sweet ice blue porcelain star ear rings.
