A Happy Sunday

I don't know how this week passed so fast again. On Friday I was living in Thursday, couldn't believe the weekend was about to start. On Saturday I did practically nothing but grocery shopping and cooked with H. Ok, I made a brooch, photographed my new handbag and got it listed in my shop but that's all, really.

Today we had such a beautiful sunny day here. I went to wander in the forest right by our house and found a bowful of chanterelles from there, it was a joyful discovery as their season is ending soon! There were still some blueberries too, I ate handfuls and picked a couple of branches to bring home.

We also walked to the lake near our home, it's one of our favorite places around here. The forest is so lovely, it's in a natural state and is very rich in flora and fauna (especially in birds). We saw a skull of some animal there but couldn't recognise it. It was bigger than cat's but the teeth wasn't sharp. And the lake was full of birds again, I could only recognise the swans but there were hundreds of birds and of several species, waiting for their long journey towards south to begin. The beautiful weather and walks in the woods really made my day. I wish every Sunday was like this one!

I love the scenery that opens up from a birdwatching tower by the lake

A stream had a green weed coat on it, there was some magic in that place

This tiny mushroom looked so cute but these are better left alone

Chanterelles fried in butter tasted so good (kitten was interested in them too!)

She wanted to see the branches of blueberries I placed in a vase. She's nosy!

Those sunny autumnal days are the best, I dare to say it's the autumn now... Sure we have raint ones too, they are not that great;)

I wish I had taken a picture of the skull but I have to admit I was too scared and couldn't look at that for long! Funny... maybe it was a mini dino *winks to Ira
