Welcome – Facebook and Fall
Thanks to Patricia Gozlan, prosperity coach and also motivation coach for kicking my behind a bit.
I love writing and blogging, but today I was just “I don’t want”.
But a blogging challenge is a blogging challenge is a blogging challenge ……
While we are talking – just check out Patricia’s wonderful blog.
Even if you don’t think you are the target group, there are so many thoughts we can use for our daily life.
This is a random blog with random thoughts. A bit of musing and meandering.
Mixed and blew up like the leaves in the garden.
Pretty cold outside, yes it is fall, autumn, Indian summer.
Ok skip the summer of Indian we will keep the Indian because of the colors.
I love those colors of the trees in fall.
In Germany this season Indian summer is called “Altweibersommer” – literally translated “Old-Women’s Summer”.
It sounds a bit rude – towards autumn and towards women.
When you check the meaning, you will find out that in this case “Weiber” doesn’t mean “Women” or “Wives”. The origin is in middle German “weiben”, which means “knüpfen” or “weben” = to tie, to knot , to weave.
A certain kind of spiders use to weave long strings and sail on these through the air.
This is the origin of “Altweibersommer”, because they do it at that special time in the year, when the leaves turn to these wonderful Indian curry colors.
Today is no more summer, neither “Altweiber” nor “Indian”, although the colors of those leaves still at the tree are wonderful.
It started to get cold.
In the morning and late evening you get an idea of the upcoming winter.
Sometimes I wonder that there is no snow already.
Guess there will be a pretty storm later on.
The fir tree in front of my window, 20 m tall, started to dance her storm dance. Waving up and down. I am glad that she doesn’t jump into my room.
What does autumn bring, beside the cold?
A new welcome page or landing page for my fanpage at facebook.
A new orange look for Helz-Design.
Have a look, and if you are no fan, please like us.
Like me sounds so egoistic even being a single woman business.
The shops start to orange up as well.
You can buy tangerines and oranges and mandarins and pumpkins.
Halloween decoration is in the shelves, although Germany is not the heartland of Halloween.
I don’t mind, I like it.
Next to the Halloween decoration, you can spot the first gingerbreads, Christmas lights and chocolate.
I love fall.
I love the hearty dishes that will be served again.
Lovely soups: potato soup, lentil soup, pumpkin soup.
Casseroles and stews. I love carrot hot pot.
You can’t eat that in summer.
And hey, nothing better than a walk in fall, and jump right into the lovely dry heaps of leaves, or feel the rustling leaves cracking underneath your feet.
