 Simple Pleasures #54

Is it really September already?

How did that happen?

Even though we will be having hot weather here in Georgia for a while and even though I don't really like cold weather I have been turning my attention to fall. 

I want to give my apartment a cozy feel so I started on my bedroom by updating my wall shelf.

Next week I will share some of the other things I added to my gallery wall in the bedroom.

I spend most of my time in my apartment these days and so I want it to be extra cozy. 

I've been spending time online looking for ideas to add fall touches without breaking the bank. 

Yesterday when I went out to run errands it was 92 degrees, but I actually saw a few red leaves. 

I think the trees are sick of the blistering heat.

Some things I love about fall are the beautiful leaves, fresh crunchy apples, and pumpkins.

What fall things are you looking forward to?

Inspiring Reads From Around The Web

Gluten-Free Apple Cake

This gluten-free apple sharlotka cake is a great alternative to apple pie and only requires five ingredients.

I sure do miss those apple trees that were in my backyard when I was growing up, but these days I am happy to let someone else do the apple picking.

I'm all for an easy peasy recipe and especially one that is this tasty.

It's also perfect for the dairy free members of your family, but for me I say pass a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a topping please. 

What I am Reading And Watching

I am currently reading War At Home an older series of books by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles.

I am reading book number two but I definitely suggest starting with book one in the series. 

Goodbye Piccadilly a novel

"Goodbye Piccadilly is the first book in theWar at Homeseries by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, author of the much-loved Morland Dynasty novels. Set against the real events of 1914, Goodbye Piccadilly is extraordinary in scope and imagination and is a compelling introduction to the Hunter family."

I have been watching a lot of TV series on MHZ, which is a streaming channel of foreign tv shows through Amazon.

All of the shows are subtitled.

This week I watched a very funny French show called Make Love Not Kids.

From The Producers:

Picture three very different families: Odile & Alexandre, living a quiet life with their three kids; Anissa with her new husband Serge and Clément as the ex-husband, with their ups and downs. Meï and Chang who just arrived from Beijing as political refugees.On the surface they have nothing in common until their kids befriend each other at school. Soon, the adults, who all share the same desire to be loving parents, regardless of life’s unexpected twists can now turn to each other with a sense of humour.  Hard blows, family secrets, an unexpected pregnancy, a coming-out…

A family comedy about real life that everyone will enjoy! I did.

  1. Summer is my favorite season, so good thing it's followed by fall, which I also love. I'm looking forward to sweaters and boots, squash, pumpkins, mum, and mostly, nature's glorious colors!
