I’ve joined NaBloPoMo’s daily prompts for October. I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately, and I’m hoping these little writing exercises will sort of help me get back on track. But I’ll be cheating a bit here, I don’t think I’ll be able to write everyday, what I’ll do instead is bundle the days up together in one blog post. Sorry! But who knows, maybe I’ll be inspired to write longer and more interesting posts rather than my usual Today, little T did this, did that, said this, said that kind of thing.
For the 1st of October the daily prompt is: What is your favourite thing about Autumn? I don’t have one reason, I have four! And they are:
1. The changing of the colours of the leaves from brown to gold, everything seems to be tinted in gold!
2. The cold air does not bite, but is enough to reason to wrap oneself up in a nice cardigan, or layer up.
3. As a parent of a young child, I’ve learned to embrace everything about Halloween: carving pumpkins, Halloween costumes and of course, the treats.
4. And lastly, I love it because we had a lovely small but beautiful wedding in Autumn.
The first thing that came into my mind is ginger! I don’t know why, perhaps it reminds me of all the lovely soups to be made when the air is cold and ginger happens to be one of the main ingredients in some of the delicious recipes I’ve found like this yummy, creamy must-try Ginger Carrot Soup recipe. If you’re not a big fan of carrots, try this Butternut Squash Soup recipe instead. I’ve tried them both and can attest to how delicious they are, even the little one loves it!
October 3 Daily Prompt: Will you dress up for Halloween? What will you be?
Nope. I’m just going to be me. But I’m thinking of dressing up little T in this lovely no-sew Spider Web cap I’ve found in this lovely woman’s blog called Delia Creates. She’s absolutely a goddess when it comes to DIY stuff. When I grow up, I want to be her! =)
What do you love about Autumn? Do share!
