I love a slow transition into fall. The chillier, almost electric mornings that lead into warm afternoons where you can still get away wearing your birks, and then finally enjoying your dinner at dusk. This weekend is jam-packed with tasks and chores that make summer feel like a distant memory and the certainty of cold days ahead seem all too inevitable. The good news? There's a whole lot of beer and brats to fill the month of Oktober. If you're looking for me this weekend, I'll be putting away the summer loungers with a slight hefeweißbier buzz on with plenty more amber bottles in the fridge should you care to drop by. But for now, here are a few gems from around the inter-web.
Just over two weeks to go to take a position and have a voice! "Explore how you fit in Canada's political landscape" using CBC's Vote Compass.
Do you plant bulbs in the fall? If you haven't, and you have the space, it's a lovely ritual for end of season gardening, all with the promise of color relatively soon after the snow melts in the spring.
Lupita Nyong'o talks braiding and friendship.
My everyday fall coat.
For whatever reason, none of my tomatoes ripened on the vine this year. I had pounds and pounds of green tomatoes that I had to do something with. This green tomato salsa did the trick.
Artisanal firewood, for that special someone.
My current pedicure mood.
#woopfinished my Little Giants T-Shirt just in time for fall layering to commence!
The most haunted places in my neighbouring province. This has given tourism in B.C. a whole new realm (mind the pun) of possibilities!
"In Color", Jamie XX album that I waited and waited and waited for. XOXO to Jamie XX for hittin' it just right.
