A Simply Good Weekend

Over the weekend, Brit Boy and I went down to the market town of Devizes and did some errands. We like it down there. It’s a nice little town with cozy little walkways between the shops. As we did our errands we picked up some food at the supermarket for our lunch. Then we walked back to our car. We sat in the car underneath a beautiful canopy of trees and listened to the radio as we ate our lunch. We shared a pasta salad and had sandwiches…we hadn’t had breakfast so we were hungry ;-) It was really good! I think that the combination of good food, good music and the scenery were just the right way to spend our day. I love days like that. It just reminds me that the simple things in life are indeed the beauty of life. Here are a couple of photos I took from the car after we finished eating. The trees were beautiful. Here’s a bit of our view.





On Sunday, I was in a baking mood and autumn always makes me muffin crazy, so this was my snack on Sunday afternoon and it was so good :-)




I made apple cinnamon muffins. The house smelled great as they were baking. I just love those apple cinnamon aromas during this time of the year. Don’t you? :-) It just smells like autumn.

Brit Boy has been having a couple for breakfast every morning and I’ve been having them too, so we’re starting to run low. So now I’m off to replenish the supply. Talk to you later!

That's a nice looking muffin. I guess 3:30 is muffin time around your house. I like days like the one you described too.

Those uneventful weekends are the best! There's something about the crisp air, color..It's almost as if Mother Nature, knowing that winter is ahead and everything will go into hibernation, is pushing all the paint out of the tubes to use the last of the color. One last big explosion of color to push it out, to throw away the empty tubes of color! Because if you think about it, most of Autumns colors are the primary colors!

There's nothing better than the aroma of freshly baked goods permeating the house. Yum.

What a charming blog, really enjoyed reading the entries. I miss my British sitcoms since I'm an American expat living in the Philippines. Very interesting site.

I love your photos of the English countryside!! It is a while since I've been out in the country. Are we having the most lovely autumn?

Apple and cinnamon do just say fall, don't they? I think I will bake some today. You have inspired me.

I closed my eyes and saw you two living in the moment - the presence of life and love! The trees enjoyed you enjoying them (smile)!!

It sounds like such an amazing day! You had such beautiful weather! What a great day to get out into the sun. Your muffin looked gorgeous. Now I want to make muffins.

it's starting to look like fall indeed. those muffins look really delish. so are you burning cinnamon and spice candles yet this fall ? I was thinking of making a carrot cake but tonite it was a red velvet cake instead. I know that's christmas fare, but the temp is in the 40's so it's perfect for me. ;)

A lot of time, happiness can be so simple and innocent right. Just like when we were young, we would be happy if our parents bought us candies or ice-cream or brought us out.

Most of our leaves are already gone :o( It is much more colder too. We had to scrape our windshields this morning. Brrrr...
