I know the summer isn’t over yet and we might have a wonderful (sunny and warm) August. But still, I can’t ignore the fact that it is the 4th of August today and the fall is sneaking upon us, little by little each day.

I know many aren’t looking forward to days with rain and wind and a temp closer zero degree celcius each day. I am too one of those. Summer is lovely and so is winter with the cold weather and snow.  But the fall? I hate those gloomy days when it does nothing else than rain.


But why be so neative?

Here is 8 reasons to look forward to fall:

  1. You can cuddle up under a blanket and see a movie (without feeling quilty and thinking you should be outside in the sun (like in the summerdays)).
  2. The colors! The fall is so beautiful to photograph.
  3. If you have kids, you can pick a bunch of leafs and make art out of it. Like glu them to a pice of white paper or place them under the white paper and draw ontop so you get the outline of the leaf on the paper.
  4. Pick berries in the forrest. If you life near a forrest that is.
  5. You can start on a indoor project without worrying about the outdoor project you should’ve been doing.
  6. Light lots of candles. When the fall comes it gets darker and the candle lights can be brought out again.
  7. Read a good book while listening to the rain / wind outside.
  8. Did I mentioned the colors?! The colors are worth mentoning twice!

I have a few things planned when the rainy/cold days sets in already. And that is:

  • paint my skirtings in my entire apartment white. They are now pinewood and I hate it. Absolutely hate pinewood. Ugh.
  • Sow myself some duvet cover and pillowcase. Not done it before, but I’m gonna try. Will be fun. Gonna borrow my sisters sowing machine.
  • Organize my picture folders. Go through all of them, delete what’s not supposed to be there and take a backup of everything.
  • Organize my wardrobe.
  • work out a neat way to store all my bags / purses. I guess I have something between 15 – 20 in total. Lost count. I girl can’t have enough purses, can she?
  • get that shoesehelf built. Gonna do it myself with some help from my dad.

I guess that’s all I got for now. Not bad with six things on the list. Now it’s important to remember this list! Don’t be surprised if december comes and I’ve only done 1/3 of it.

Oh… and of course, I’m gonna take a ton of great pictures (even if it rains)!
