how to spend a late-fall weekend

happy weekend!
since the weather in guelph has been turning
colder, darker & grayer over the past few weeks,
i thought of a list of feel-good things to do
when outside it's feeling more & more like winter...
put on your comfyest clothes
(for me, it's lululemons, a tank top, fuzzy socks & a cozy cardigan)
play a few of your christmas records
(or your ipod playlist)
and putter & tidy the house
until the clutter is gone and everything is in its place
head out to your favorite cafe
(the one that plays the amazing jazz music
and has more than one fireplace)
to spend the afternoon reading a novel
get caught up on laundry
while having a sex&thecity marathon
bundle up (coat, mittens, scarf, toque)
and go for a long walk to enjoy the last of the crunchy leaves
and the quiet before the first snowfall
go craft crazy
(there's so many amazing ideas
on blogs around the web
...and marthastewart.com of course)
visit the museums, art galleries
& heritage houses in your area
(you know, the ones we never seem to step foot in
when the weather is warm & lovely)
make hot apple cider in your crock pot
or on your stove...
the whole house will smell amazing.
better yet, take some in a mug on a long walk
through a park or forest,
or along a river or breakwater

these are just a few things i hope to do this week,
before the snow starts to arrive!
(and probably will continue to do until mid-february)

have a wonderful weekend!
