Everyday life week 43...

Week 43 of the year 2019, came and went. It was the week when I realised we've gotten  to the time we define as late autumn. It means that winter is near. The clocks have gone back, the leaves are falling of the trees and the grading season is upon us. That means long hours in the office. It is dark when I leave home and dark when I return home. The candle lights are out again, and people seems to hibernate. Here are five things this week:

 Late afternoon office view. I am the last one to leave, but a week before the clocks to back it is still daylight as I leave the office building.

 Still need a commuter flat some days a week.
 Driving home on a Friday afternoon is just the best feeling....
 Grocery shopping late on a Friday night. Met a childhood friend. Haven't seen him for 30-35 years.

Over the last couple of years I have become a fan of probiotics /fermented food. The health benefits have really impressed me. I got hold of some water kefir grains and my second batch made on apricots, produced a really frizzy, fresh drink. So inspiring.

Daily life week 42.....

The first week after a week off is always a bit though, I find. But daily life has found its rythm again. Autumn is surrounding us, evident both in nature with its glorious colours, the darker mornings and, on my part at least, the slower pace of everything.  Here are five things that forms autumnlife in week 42.

 Back at my desk on monday morning.

Walking this route every weekday night. I walk alone and meet hardly any cars and  no people.

 In spring I started to knit my #eastrivershawl by the Danish designer Susie Haumann. I am finally getting around to finishing it.

 A glimpse of autumn through my classroom Windows.

Years ago I bought the triology of the Forsythe saga. I never got around to reading it. Now I have started on volume one. I found a note inside it written on a notepad from the Torres wine company, dating back from when I worked in  the hospitality industri. I left that job in 2009. A  cancellation was written on the note for the 29th of February, meaning that I bought the book in a leap year more than ten years ago. About time I read it!

Catching up..

 Time flies. I am now on the autumn/half-term break.  Can't believe we are  there already.

I am two months into my new job and it has  been  busy. But I feel that I am settling into it. Now it is time to finish my yoga-teacher training, which I am getting around to now.

I now work in  the fjord-area near Bergen. Beautiful always, but particularly with the crisp, clear autumn air. Taking a break from it this week and spending time by my favourite coast. Time to take some time-out.
